New Action Footage for ‘The Wolverine’ Starring Hugh Jackman
Somewhat lost in the shuffle is James Mangold’s upcoming The Wolverine. We can definitely blame Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel for that. I would argue the geektastic Star Trek Into Darkness is also at fault.
You also wouldn’t be wrong to push The Wolverine off your mind because of the last incarnation – X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, things look up for Logan (Hugh Jackman) because the new pic – set to release July 26, 2013 – looks all-around better. However, “looks” isn’t always a telling sign (obviously).
The plot is set in Japan (something teased after the credits in Origins) and features samurais! Huzzah! It’s still disappointing Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) couldn’t helm the project, but cautious optimism is building for the upcoming X-Men movie.
Recently, some footage shown at CinemaCon was released. It’s kind of like a teaser trailer. Whatever you want to call it, it’s available below.
