The Wolverine

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.

Here are some new images from James Mangold's The Wolverine from Total Film (via ComingSoon):

The Wolverine - First Look

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.

Hmmm, didnt notice Mangold has at the helm til now, that leaves me a bit worried honestly.

How is that worst than Gavin Hood?

Brandon V. Fletcher on Mar 18, 2013


I never said that, I just think that Mangold isnt very up to par.

Cody W on Mar 18, 2013


Why? 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, and Cop Land are awesome

Knight and Day. 'Nuff said.

I hate that angry internet mentality that when a director makes 1 bad film it makes the rest of their filmography null and void. Its like the people who say Sam Raimi sucks because Spider-man 3 wasn’t great even though he had made multiple amazing films before and a great film after. James Mangold is a talented filmmaker.

Daniel_Plainview_Milkshake on Mar 18, 2013


Woah. Woah. Pump the brakes. I know this is probably an over reaction, but I agree with your point. Internet is suck (intentional). I was just saying he is not sterling. And since KNIGHT AND DAY was his last feature film (and was not so good), it leaves me a bit more worried, than if say DARREN ARONOFSKY(!!!) was the director of THE WOLVERINE. Raimi followed SPIDERMAN 3 up with DRAG ME TO HELL, one of my favorite horror films. So yeah, jumping to conclusions is bad is bad is bad.

DAVIDPD on Mar 18, 2013


yeah he's got low standards for vfx

Linkfx on Mar 18, 2013


although knight and day wasn't good, it still had inventive action sequences and not to mention this is the same guy who did Identity. If you haven't seen that check it out

Walk the line was great, 310 was disappointing imo and wasnt a fan of copland either. He seems very hit or miss but he cant direct action.

codyw on Mar 18, 2013


No offense, but I find that last statement of yours to fly right in the face of 3:10. It had one of the most intense and enjoyable western shootouts I've ever seen. I think he's competent with action.

JL on Mar 18, 2013


Dude it was a PG fest, tons of somersaults and buckshot dont make for a good shootout IMO. The only redeeming action in the whole movie was in the last 5 minutes when the supposed badass Crowe was mad out to be the whole movie but never saw killed all his henchmen.

Cody W on Mar 18, 2013


Agreed, I can't believe Aronofsky left this for Noah...

Finally! They add some realism by at least adding leftover blood to his claws. Hoping this movie will be a legit Wolverine solo. First movie I enjoyed and personally think it's good. X2: X-Men United was amazing and awesome! It is my favorite X-Flick and one of my favorite superhero movies and (and movies in general) of all time. I can put up with X-Men: The Last Stand but it was really bad. They screwed up everything basically. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was awful to the max. And First Class was brilliant. So this franchise has had its ups and downs. But with the new timeline that their setting with The Wolverine taking place after the events of The Last Stand (which will be very interesting how the events of X3 affected Logan), and Singer returning to helm Days of Future Past (Which hopefully will fix the screwed up timeline that Brett Ratner gave us), X-Men looks like it's getting back on its feet. Looking forward to The Wolverine and Days of Future Past. Hopefully if these two movies are successful we get a sequel to Days of Future Past and finally we can also get X4 with Singer returning as well.

Will it truly be the wolverine we hope to see? Adamantium claws crossed.

mooreworthy on Mar 18, 2013


Ha, pic 4, yakuza wolvie.

JL on Mar 18, 2013


I am a little surprised that we have not seen even a teaser trailer yet. Premiering your first a trailer 4 months before the films initial release date seems a bit late.

Day on Mar 18, 2013


I disagree, I wish other films tried this approach. So that when the film arrives, it feels (atleast somewhat) fresh.

Grant on Mar 19, 2013


Actually, it is SO not. Screen door plot, thuggish Logan, pathetic asinine Yakuza, villains, and bad guy, implausible character development, and a decided lack of badassery.
