The first photo for The Wolverine has hit the web, but we didn't need the shot to know how good a shape Hugh Jackman is in.

The promotional shot shows a "ripped" Jackman in character as the Wolverine.

Standing shirtless and clearly poised for a fight, the dark photo has been issued ahead of the film’s release in July 2013.

On Monday, Jackman used Twitter to give fans a heads-up. "Can't wait for all to see!! AgentM: Just got word that I have something WAY cool to share on Monday morning."

Filming for the $US100 million-plus sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine began filming at Sydney’s Fox Studios in August.

While back in his hometown a "shirtless" Jackman has been spotted on numerous occasions enjoying the sunshine at Bondi Beach.

Jackman also used his stay to make a surprise appearance as a guest presenter at Monday Night's Helpmann Awards.
