Compared to some of its summer blockbuster superhero competition -- "Iron Man 3" and "Man Of Steel" -- "The Wolverine" has been playing its cards close to its chest. We've seen a smattering of images, and lots of encouraging talk from director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, but not a frame of footage so far, and in general the film's a little more under the radar than its rivals, though we suppose that's fair enough, given that it won't hit theaters 'til much later.

While we've talked a lot about "The Wolverine," and recently dove into the diverse array of influences James Mangold is bringing to the table, we're still yet to experience the saturated marketing that's been promised. In fact, we haven't seen a moving image from the picture yet, though a trailer is due sometime between now and the end of the month. So until then? Here are a few more pictures to tide you over.

In the early months of promoting a big-budget film, parties involved usually make a play towards reaching diehards first, making their film seem like a boutique item to the devoted. This sort of fan service feeds the few who are credited with starting the “buzz” on a film before a trailer is released to the general public, at which point regular moviegoers can judge it for themselves. In recent years, some studios have turned this into high art, with filmmakers delivering pre-planned soundbites during shooting, teasing footage during public appearances, and even heading online to be ready for fans’ inquiries as sort of a cheerleader for their own work. It’s created an odd intimacy with fans not just in the filmmaking stages, but in the promotional exchanges as well. And while it can do much to stoke excitement and anticipation for an upcoming film, can this sort of marketing technique backfire?

Though its release date is only a few months away, James Mangold's summer tentpole “The Wolverine” has yet to boast a trailer (a fact likely to be remedied soon). There are a ton of images and descriptions to satiate fans in the meantime, but now, rather than just unveil another sneak peek at the film, the director has revealed a few of his key pieces of inspiration for the project, and they are intriguing.

Marketing cycles for movies, especially for big summer blockbusters, are usually planned long in advance, with clear stages and expectations. But in 2013 there are at least two big, upcoming movies that are yet to really show their faces. The biggest absence thus far is "The Hangover Part III" which hasn't even shown a teaser trailer or poster yet, despite being set for release in three months. And coming in second, with a date set for five months away, is "The Wolverine." But you expect more soon. A lot more...

It may seem like the studios have forgotten they have some summer tentpoles to market, but just bear in a mind a few things. We're still in the midst of the awards season and the Sundance Film Festival just wrapped, so executives and marketing departments are temporarily preoccupied. Also, the Super Bowl is next weekend, and you can bet that it will be the launching pad for a half dozen major campaigns, so just sit tight. Until then, a few more images have arrived to tide you over.

With Oscar season coming in full swing right after the craziness that is the holiday movie season, you may not even realize that it’s now January and, at the moment, Hollywood’s current slate of releases is...kinda lame. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly’s 2013 preview has given us a chance to get a good look at some of Hollywood’s biggest summer movies.

With the film due this summer, and still no trailer, the only thing we have to go by on "The Wolverine" thus far is a handful of images and quotes from a few interviews. Rumors of various characters from the "X-Men" films popping up have been percolating (Hugh Jackman has made the tease himself, with Famke Janssen's Jean Grey being the leading candidate), but we'll just have to wait and see. But director James Mangold did sit down recently with EW to talk about the movie, and shed a bit more light on the Logan we'll be seeing this time around.

After seeing their latest films open to massive Christmas Day box office returns, Hugh Jackman and Christoph Waltz have earned a brief respite from weeks of tirelessly plugging “Les Miserables” and “Django Unchained” on the national press circuit. However, that’s not to say those junket days yielded nothing, as the actors’ cameo comments on both the latest 'X-Men' and 'Muppet' movies prove just the intriguing opposite.

Listen Logan, we know things might be hard right now. Silver Samurai is out there, and aspects of your personal life may not be going so well, but this is a bit much. At least put on a jacket, you'll catch your death of cold.
