SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Ahead of this morning’s new trailer for The Wolverine, director James Mangold revealed two more character posters for the Fox film featuring Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper and Rila Fukushima as Yukio in the same traditional style as the one we saw earlier this month of the Silver Samurai.
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.
Opening July 26, The Wolverine also stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Hiroyuki Sanada Shingen Yashida, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko Yashida and Brian Tee as Noburo Mori.
