It’s a given that everyone’s favorite Canucklehead will be battling more than just Yakuza gangsters, purty Japanese lasses, and guys with Samurai swords when James Mangold’s “The Wolverine” hits theaters this Summer. He’ll be snapping those claws against some exotic weapons, too, such as ones being wielded by a certain gang of black pajamas-wearing suckers called The Hand.
Check out two new images from “The Wolverine” showing one such encounter with those dudes. Lots of really sharp instruments flying around there…
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, THE WOLVERINE finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
“The Wolverine” stars Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, and Hal Yamanouchi.
