There’s been a release of Hi Res production stills from James Mangold‘s The Wolverine to the Internet, a good mix of new and already seen stills, but in the much crisper Hi Res format. The ninja snow fight looks incredible, and I can’t wait to see some of the Cosplay for Viper and Silver Samurai that will come out of this movie.
I do think it is very interesting that we have not seen a good still of the Silver Samurai yet, Mangold and his marketing team seem to be holding that one back to increase the thrills and chills of a theater screening. The fight between Wolverine and the Silver Samurai should be epic.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, the film takes Wolverine (Jackman) to modern day Japan. 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 claws it’s way onto theater screens on July 26th, starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.
