Time to take another look at Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima and Svetlana Khodchenkova, ’cause some pretty cool new images from The Wolverine have arrived! This update comes straight from director James Mangold and as you’re about to see, also includes behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming sequel (with a little description). Check it out!
We will once again remind you that Mangold directs the movie from a script written by Mark Bomback and Scott Frank, and this time, an epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (aka the most iconic character of the X-Men universe) to modern day Japan.

“Tao Okamoto (Mariko) as we shot a climactic sequence in the Yashida research facility”
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.
The Wolverine is set to hit theaters on July 26th, 2013.
