‘Wolverine’ Set Footage Puts You in a WWII POW Camp

By  · Published on August 1st, 2012

If you’re anxiously awaiting Wolverine, or if you just love hearing Australian accents, this video from News 7 has both. The production headed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) is currently filming in Kurnell, and the local news caught some excellent looks at a WWII Japanese POW camp that looks very, very beeg.

The character’s X-Men Origins entry was a giant mess, but after so much off-and-on development as well as hype surrounding the Christopher McQuarrie script that takes its cues from the seminal Frank Miller/Chris Claremont mini-series set in Japan, it’s just good to see filming underway. Plus, the set looks impressive. [JoBlo]
