Wolverine’s Japanese inspired artwork

The Wolverine is part of the X-Men film series and once again stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The events take place after X-Men: The Last Stand where Logan was forced to kill his love Jean Grey to save the world. It has haunted him for some time. Back in 1945, when Logan was a solider during WWII, he saved a Japanese military officer during the bombing of Nagasaki. In present time, that officer is dying of cancer and asks for Logan to visit Japan to repay the debt. The man wants to take Logan’s healing factor so he could recover from cancer and Logan could stop being immortal, something he himself sees as curse. After denying the offer, his healing factor is blocked by a toxin injected into his body. Logan’s then forced to fight a bunch of samurai without his healing capabilities.

10 Minimalist Marvel posters created by Marko Manev

Going off of last week’s post of celebrating unofficial movie posters that are awesome, we at Reel Design stumbled upon a series of minimalist Marvel posters created by Marko Manev, a mix-media artist, graphic designer, illustrator, and all-around badass creator from Skopje, Macedonia.

Marko’s minimalist posters take iconic Marvel character’s and reduces them to symbols associated with the character. Characters include members of the Avengers, the X-men, and the Inhumans. It’s really beautiful stuff, to be honest.

Here are our favorite 10:

Logan (2017)

Logan is the final farewell (allegedly) to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, after 17 years of portraying the character on the big screen. The story takes place in 2029, with the mutant population at an all time low and Logan’s power to self-heal slowly becoming a thing of the past. He lives his days under the radar, with his hand clutched around the bottle and being a chauffeur for extra cash. Logan takes care of an old and sick Professor Xavier somewhere near the Mexican border. Things take a turn for the worst when a stranger asks Logan to drive a young mutant named Laura to the Canadian border, not knowing that they both share DNA.
