Ahead of the film’s July bow, James Mangold’s comic book sequel “The Wolverine” snikts its way online with a handful of new images courtesy of Empire Magazine. The mag also recently gave us a handful of new images from “Thor: The Dark World”, so if you’re looking for handful of new comic book images, it looks like Empire Magazine is your mag. If, you know, you still read magazines. What is this, 2011?
Anyhoo. Check out the images. Still totally digging Rila Fukushima as a totally badass, sword-wielding Yukio. She might just end up being a real crowd favorite.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis 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, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, Hal Yamanouchi.
Snikting it good this July 26, 2013.
