IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Hugh Jackman takes center stage again in the latest Japanese poster for director James Mangold The Wolverine.
The film’s star appeared with fellow castmates Rila Fukushima (Yukio), Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper), Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada, aka Silver Samurai) and Tao Okamoto (Mariko) in the latest batch of new posters and character images. This newest promotional image, as seen on SuperHeroHype, features Wolverine going a bit overkill with claws extended and a sword in hand.
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 opens July 26.
