This should go without saying after the intentionally vague headline, but there will be some big spoilers in this article for "The Wolverine." Read accordingly.
Here's one of those moments when a decision is made by someone on a film and I'm so baffled by it that I'm not even sure what to write or how to handle the headline.
James Mangold is the director of this summer's "The Wolverine," and that's one of those choices that has kept me interested since he was announced. Darren Aronofsky was first on the film, but when Mangold took over in development, it seemed like a cool and unconventional choice, which can pay off in cool ways sometimes. The entire time Mangold has been in production, he's been pretty vocal about the sort of thing he's trying to make, and they've done a great job of keeping images from the film locked down. As a result, all we've had were a few on-set photographs, a couple of portrait images, and that's it. Descriptions, and nothing more.
