Bloody Claws in New 'The Wolverine' Photos + Trailer on March 27th
Audiences are eagerly awaiting the first trailer for The Wolverine, the follow-up to X-Men Origins: Wolverine with director James Mangold hopefully steering Logan (Hugh Jackman) in a much higher quality direction than the abysmal prequel. We've seen a couple cool posters, not to mention a first look photo, and now we have some new images from the film (and a couple others that surfaced online that we never covered). This time Wolverine gets his claws bloody and soaking wet in two different images. And if these shots get you excited, the first trailer will arrive online March 27th with a sneak peek the day before.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day) is directing The Wolverine from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback who are adapting the classic 1982 story arc in the Wolverine comics, which takes our favorite mutant all the way to Japan. The cast includes Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada and Rila Fukushima. 20th Century Fox is releasing The Wolverine in theaters starting July 26th, 2013 next summer. Stay tuned for more.
