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.

Yep. I know that there's been gripes about how he's too tall, too--get this--_handsome_ to play Wolverine, but you know what? He nailed the attitude, and as far as I'm concerned, he owns the part.

He may not think he's anything like Wolverine, but look at how ripped he is! I wouldn't want to piss Jackman off, that's for sure.
