By now you’ve seen at least one trailer for James Mangold‘s directorial work with The Wolverine and you’ve had to have noticed the funeral fight scene. Among the ensuing chaos we get to see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in a quick moment of weakness having “performance issues” with his healing factor. No worries ladies, it’s only a flesh wound for our Canadian friend.
Now, thanks to the fine folks at Yahoo, we get an extended look at the “funeral fight” scene with Wolverine and Yukio, played by Rila Fukushima. Check it out below:
Damn, that Yukio really know how to put a couple of those goons out of commission permanently. Hopefully she has a bit more screen time over other female supporting Marvel characters that have been in other super hero movies recently. I personally can’t wait to see The Wolverine once it comes out and hope you do too.
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.
The Wolverine is in theaters everywhere July 26th, 2013.
