"Eternity can be a curse. A man can run out of things to live for." Honestly, the first domestic trailer for The Wolverine from director James Mangold was a little underwhelming for this writer. The international trailer that was released around the same time did a much better job of painting this sequel in the right light, but still getting the story and action across. However, there are still worries that this film is cut from the same mold as the less than stellar X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Well, this new trailer hits some of the same beats as the first, but is edited and presented in a much better way with some solid new action.
Here's the new trailer for James Mangold's The Wolverine from the film's YouTube Channel:
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 Marvel mutant all the way to Japan. 20th Century Fox is releasing James Mangold's The Wolverine in theaters everywhere on July 26th later this summer. Are you excited now?
