The claws are out in the first official image from The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman as the title mutant.

Logan -- and his adamantium claws -- are back and ready for some samurai sword action. Directed by James Mangold, the film follows the beloved comic book character, Wolverine, in Japan as he trains with a samurai warrior to prepare for his toughest battle yet.

Take a look at the full-sized image after the jump.

The Wolverine is based on the 1982 Marvel Comics limited series, Wolverine, penned by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.  See the full image of Jackman as the iconic mutant below.

To prepare for the ripped role, Jackman reportedly ate six meals a day. He also received diet tips from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on how to bulk up for the movie.

Johnson suggested that for six months, Jackman eat 6,000 calories a day, which Jackman told Entertainment Weekly consisted of "an awful lot of chicken, steak and brown rice."

    Someone has commented on another site that he was on something more than a 6k calorie and gym diet to build that much muscle, and I disagree. When you work out a LOT, and burn thousands of calories per day, you have consume a LOT of calories to make up for those lost in order to be healthy. Ask any diet and gym consultant.
