IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Continuing the series of traditional ink-wash character posters for director James Mangold’s The Wolverine, Collider has debuted a fifth one, featuring Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey. It joins similar posters spotlighting Wolverine, Silver Samurai, Viper and Yukio.
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 stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Will Yun Lee as Silver Samurai, Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen Yashida, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko Yashida, Rila Fukushima as Yukio and Brian Tee as Noburo Mori. The film opens July 26.
