With Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel out of the way, Kick-Ass 2, Thor: The Dark World and The Wolverine remain. While we won’t know which will have offered the best viewing experience until the end of the year, it is safe to say that one stands above the others in its posters.

The very first artistic one-sheet for The Wolverine instantly made our list of the best movie posters of 2012 and Twentieth Century Fox kept the train rolling by making more of the Japanese Sumi ink paintings for every character in the film. Fox sent us three more of these posters to share that round out the series.

First there was Logan with his claws out revealed during Marvel’s on-set livechat with Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold [click for full-size version of any poster]:

Then came Viper, Yukio and the Silver Samurai:

And earlier this week, Jean Grey – with just a cameo appearance in the film – got her own as well:

Now we can add to that the three new Sumi ink one-sheets Fox provided us:

We love the smart use of red on each poster to highlight each characters most noticeable physical traits, weapons or abilities. Which poster for The Wolverine is your favorite?

The Wolverine is directed by James Mangold off of Mark Bomback and Christopher McQuarrie’s screenplay. It stars Hugh Jackman, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Rila Fukushima.

  1. Best posters all year, the wolverine one looks beautiful on my wall

  2. Viper’s poster is the business

  3. Wow beautiful poster! I love how they used the red too! They highlighted Shingen’s Muramasa Blade!! This movie is gonna be crazy!!

  4. I got the Wolverine poster from an issue of Empire magazine. Not keen on the movie but these posters are very nice.

  5. These are amazing. Agreed the movie may be whatever – but imagery for posters are really inspired.

  6. Still on the fence about the film itself, but these Sumi-ink posters are something I am going to try and get. The one with Wolverine with arms stretched out they have around New York now look great…

  7. Awesome posters. Hopefully the movie will be awesome too.

  8. The coolest thing is probably how Wolverine is the only one without any red in his poster – maybe symbolizing how there’s no “special part” of him, that all of him is just completely B.A.?

  9. Were these posters produced by a known Sumi ink artist? I see an artists red stamp and was curious if that is a true stamp or just added there for aesthetics? I absolutely love these posters.
