Five new images have surfaced online from director James Mangold’s The Wolverine. This film really seems to be floating under the radar, which sounds crazy. Hugh Jackman is coming off an Oscar nomination, this will be his 6th big-screen appearance as Wolverine, and this latest outing is covering arguably his most critically-acclaimed Logan/Wolverine storyline that sees the character traveling to Japan.
I’ve been pretty underwhelmed by the trailers so far and am genuinely worried that it might get lost among the other blockbusters over the summer.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality. Story by Christopher McQuarrie.
