In recent months, Fox have been doing an awesome job of promoting the movie. Not only have they been releasing fantastic trailers – you can catch the latest trailer here if you missed it earlier in the month – they’ve also been creating awesome ink / sumi-e character posters, so far for the likes of Wolverine, Silver Samurai, Viper, and Yukio.
And now they’ve released another great new poster, via Collider, for a familiar face from the franchise.
*Spoiler Alert* If you haven’t seen any of the trailers and want to stay fairly blind as to what happens in The Wolverine until you actually see it, look away now.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
Jackman is joined by an excellent supporting cast, led by Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto, Will Yun Lee, Hal Yamanouchi, Brian Tee, and Svetlana Khodchenkova.
And of course, the wonderful Famke Janssen will be reprising her role as Jean Grey, seen in the new poster below.
Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) is directing from a script co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
The Wolverine will be released in 3D on 25th July here in the UK, with its US release date following a day later on July 26th. You just know this is going to be awesome, especially with Jean Grey returning.
