Some new images have just been released for the upcoming new adaptation of The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro as the titular man-creature. The film has had a troubled production – including a whole new redesign of The Wolfman and many release date changes – but remains a highly-anticipated film nonetheless.
Bloody-Disgusting has the new photos (thanks to user “Mark”), most of which show The Wolfman as the “man” and not the “wolf” (apart from one which shows him in the background and shadowed). We’ve already seen some amazing looking shots (see above header) of the character in his fully-transformed glory – however, the recent redesign may not resemble those previously released pics. Check out one of the new Wolfman images below:

That silhouette image would be a lot more effective if we hadn’t already gotten a proper look at The Wolfman already. I think for these types of “creature features” it’s best to keep the audience in the dark as much as possible, so that the reveal of the creature in the actual movie is as shocking as can be. Maybe this is some sort of sign that this take on the monster will be more about more than the creature itself (and the transformation of it) – having a strong story, characters, and dialogue to go along with the main point of interest can only be a benefit in my eyes.
The Wolfman, as stated, stars Benicio Del Toro along with Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt (pictured above) and Hugo Weaving. It is directed by Joe Johnston (The First Avenger: Captain America), and after many changes, the film is now scheduled for a February 12th, 2010 release.
