The latest poster from The Wolverine
sees our hero crouching on a rooftop in Tokyo in the rain, clutching a katana sword. The motion poster is a nice touch with the driving rain bouncing on the rooftop, and the lights of Tokyo blinking and flashing in the background.
The Wolverine will see Logan (Hugh Jackman
) travelling to Japan to train with a samurai warrior. There he meets Mariko Yashida, but her father is a violent crime lord who doesn’t hit it off with Logan. Little else is known about The Wolverine, which is being described as a standalone movie rather than a sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The Wolverine co-stars Brian Tee
, Will Yun Lee
, Hiroyuki Sanada
, and Tao Okamoto
. It is directed by James Mangold and is expected to arrive in cinemas on July 25th, 2013 in Europe and July 26th, 2013 in North America.
