"The past is always behind you, but the memories still remain."

Those are the words included alongside this brand-new "Wolverine" image - posted to the film's official Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon - featuring Hugh Jackman's title bad-ass looking over his shoulder at some seemingly-ominous sight just out of frame.

So who, or what, is he staring at, exactly? I haven't a clue, though given the above caption it may well be the so-called "mysterious figure from his past" teased in the film's official synopsis.


Check out the blue-hued still below, then let us know whether you're excited for the James Mangold-directed follow-up in the comments.

"The Wolverine" is slated for released on July 26.
