Right after Silver Samurai, Yukio and Viper, The Wolverine reveals a brand new character poster with Jean Grey! My favourite one so far, maybe ’cause I’m anxious to see Logan’s lost love (read: Famke Janssen) in the whole thing again, or maybe ’cause Hugh Jackman already revealed that (this time) she has a presence which is vital to the movie, particularly for him confronting the most difficult thing within himself.
Directed by James Mangold and (also) starring Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, The Wolverine is set to hit theaters on July 26th, 2013.
The story is set sometime after X-Men: The Last Stand, and as we previously reported, revolves around Logan who, this time, travels to Japan, where he engages a mysterious figure from his past in a fight that has lasting consequences.
The rest of the plot goes like this:
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, emerging more powerful than ever before.
