The Wolverine

It's Free Comic Book Day! Someone please tell me they're handing these posters out at comic book stores. We've been building up hype for James Mangold's The Wolverine, based on the Frank Miller comic book arc, which continues with this new poster for the villain - Silver Samurai. The big, bad samurai super villain that Wolvie goes up against was first revealed in the CinemaCon footage earlier in the week, showing him in a fight with the indestructible Marvel superhero. The new art is in the same beautiful watercolor style as the first teaser poster showing Wolverine. I like the look, and I'm getting more excited to see this movie.

Note via @mang0ld: "As we are beginning to offer glimpses of Silver Samurai, here's a new great one sheet."

Silver Samurai - The Wolverine

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 July 26th this summer. Watch the full Con footage here.

I see there going for the second silver samurai instead of the first, as a comic book geek I will always find something to nitpick but damn the first silver samurai was so much more badass.
