Looks like the brownish hair is in.
I still would wait and see what the actual finished film looks like before commenting on that. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but it's impossible to exaggerate the extent to which a movie like this gets color-graded in post production. It's quite conceivable that it will end up with a heavily desaturated, monochromatic palate where blonde hair turns platinum, and anything darker than ginger turns black.
I'm sure everyone here knows what I'm talking about, because 90% of movies do it now, where everything is sort of washed out and bluish or maybe sepia looking, depending on the movie and the given scene. Nispel himself does it.
Most movies these days do so much tinting and tweaking that it's hard to tell what color anything was originally.
I would definitely say that JM has outgrown the term "lanky" that was thrown around when people only had his surfer dude pics to look at. Maybe still not big enough for some, but he looks pretty beast to me.
And he really stands out from other people in the photos who are obviously in costume and appearing in the film. He really needs to look like a different creature compared to those around him -- to be the wolf among dogs -- and it looks like they may have achieved that.
I just hope that his hair is tucked behind his ears in that first photo, and that he's not wearing some kind of pseudo ponytail or something there. that kind of hair always reminds me of that shirtless bodybuilder guy who used to play saxophone for Tina Turner. Anyone remember him? The guy who was so cool he could play with one hand, and always posed like he was modeling for a Boris painting or something?
Hope he's well-trained as a rider.
Edit -- Damn, looks like norse beat me to my first point there. Always nice to have someone agreeing, though.
