Some exciting new pictures have come to light courtesy of if.com.au (via Coming Soon), which has posted behind the scenes photographs from The Wolverine, James Mangold's new superhero sequel that we all hope will erase the memories of the ill-fated X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But we digress. While most of the pictures posted are simple shots of construction on the set and miniatures used for the upcoming film, one picture in particular could be a treasure trove of treats for fans seeking SPOILERS, or at the very least provide intriguing hints of things to come.

For those interested in those SPOILERS, the wall of Wolverine includes imagery from 1940s Japan, POW camps and what appears to be a nuclear blast with a figure, presumably Logan (Hugh Jackman) in the foreground. We're not entirely confident but it looks like there's also a picture of a samurai in combat while fighter planes drop bombs on the countryside around him. There are also pictures of a set for the bottom of a well, which Wolverine could presumably find himself inside over the course of the picture.

Check out if.com.au to see for yourself and draw your own conclusions, but assuming we're not reading too much into this production art, The Wolverine could be an exciting film indeed.

CraveOnline will be back with more The Wolverine news after we get some drinks in Madripoor.
