New Teaser Poster for “The Wolverine” and Q&A Video By The Director

At this point we are grasping for anything we can- we’ll take a Teaser poster.  The Wolverine which is currently still in production will be based on the Frank Miller and Chris Claremont graphic novel. This is considered by most to be one of the greatest Wolverine stories ever told. Frank and Chris strip Wolverine down to the bare essence of the man, revealing his soul, and he has the soul of a Samurai. The book as does the movie, brings you on a journey through the Japanese art, culture and history.

The movie version will take place in Japan where Logan will train with a Samurai. The Director James Mangold wanted to develop a Wolverine story that would stand on it’s own. The director of “3:10 to Yuma” said that he received some of his inspiration from the Clint Eastwood movie The Outlaw Josey Wales. As he explains to Entertainment Weekly,

“That’s a film in which Clint Eastwood watches his wife and children murdered in the first three minutes of the movie, And the reason I kept thinking about how neatly and concisely the set up of that film sent Clint off on a journey that was built on loss and rage — not just depression and disillusionment, but a kind of quest for some kind of revenge.”

The more we learn and read, the more hype we get. The release is scheduled for July 26, 2013.
