Fox has released a new featurette and series of images from director James Mangold’s The Wolverine. The film centers around the titular character in modern day Japan, where he encounters an enemy from his past that will change his future.
The featurette is titled ‘A Ronin Story,’ focuses on the samurai aspects of Logan/Wolverine’s story. As Mangold explains a Ronin is a Samurai without a cause. Lots of new footage in this 3-minute video, I really hope they get the story right.
The supporting cast includes Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Svetlana Khodchenkova, and Tao Okamoto.
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.
