Yesterday Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) got her own Sumi-E poster, and now even more supporting characters from The Wolverine are getting the stylish ink treatment. Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada), Mariko (Tao Okamoto), and Harada (Will Yun Lee) also get their own character posters for the comic book sequel that takes place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand. Personally, some of the trailers just didn't work for me, but the most recent international trailer really sold me on the film. Here's hoping it doesn't go the route of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and continue to ruin the character Hugh Jackman brilliantly embodies. Check out our chat with director James Mangold right here, and the posters below.
Here are the three new character posters for James Mangold's The Wolverine from Collider:
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 most recent trailer!
