We got our first look at Hugh Jackman as Wolverine a couple of weeks ago and while the updates are slow on the home front, this series of photos from the movie's Sydney, Australia set gives us all more than what we originally bargained for.

We get a couple of choice shots of Jackman walking around with a shaven mug, which was a stark difference from all the scruff that he sported when production first began. In these series of photos, we get our first look at Svetlana Khodchenkova as the Viper. She won't exactly be the best of friends with Wolverine, but damn, she's a looker. Jessica Biel was originally cast to play Viper but negotiations broken down and Svetlana stepped in right on time.

Aside from the Viper, we also see Rila Fukushima as Yukio for the first time in the second part of the gallery.

The Wolverine doesn't hit theaters until July 26th of next year, which is still a long way off. But expect more images, clips, and promotional material to hit in the coming months as premiere night draws closer. Enjoy!
