20th Century Fox has released a new international poster for The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima (Yukio on right) and Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper on left). Based on the celebrated Chris Clairmont and Frank Miller limited comic book series, Wolverine, the movie sees our pint sized’ claw swiping hero fight ninjas and other nefarious villains in Japan. The official synopsis is below:
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.
Sounds scary doesn’t it. Hopefully this movie is finally going to give fans the Wolverine solo film they’ve been crying for since the first X-Men movie hit the big screen.
