“The Wolverine” director James Mangold and his star Hugh Jackman are currently talking to the kids in a live chat being broadcast on YouTube as I type this. (Head on below to see the live chat in progress.) They’ve also released a new teaser poster for the upcoming comic book movie (via the film’s official site) to celebrate the occasion, as you can see above you. I like it. Very minimalist and gets right to the point. Or, er, points.
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 film also stars Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, Hal Yamanouchi, and is due Summer 2013.
