is a very unique take on the superhero movie. In that
respect, itís a very stylized picture. Most of it
takes place in Japan, and thereís a little bit of a
mystery to it, almost a noir-ish mystery to it; the
character Wolverine is a bit of a loner. Having said
that, there is a sound and melodic structure and
harmonic structure that is used for him, but itís not
like a Superman type of theme; itís much more
reserved. I used early on when you see him, in the
woods, (a) harmonica. The harmonica has a fairly strong
thread throughout the score, as Wolverineís sound.
Sometimes itís processed and treated, other times itís
fairly straight, but it seems to work well for him,
and it goes well with the harmonic structure thatís used
