Watch The First Trailer For Marvel’s Upcoming Mutant Blockbuster: “The Wolverine”

-0This summer is chock-full of “must-see” movies and Fox has just released the first trailer to Marvel’s immortal, mutant renegade The Wolverinestarring Hugh Jackman. 

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.

Screen Shot 2013-03-25 at 1.23.54 AMDirector James Mangold has said “The Wolverine” takes place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand. This is a very vulnerable time for Logan and it’s EXACTLY the story wanted to tell.  “Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all. Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for [Wolverine].

This phase of Logan’s life struck a cord with Mangold.  “That’s something that for me was very important, that I land in a very specific place in his timeline. I wanted to be able to tell the story without the burden of handing it off to a film that already exists and having to conform to it. The ideas of immortality reign very heavily in this story and the burden of immortality weighs heavily on Logan. For me that’s such an interesting part of Logan’s character that is nearly impossible to explore if you have a kind of league or team movie.”

The movie stars Hugh Jackman, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima and opens on July 26th, 2013.  Now sit back, relax and watch 2:28 seconds of what looks like, the WOLVERINE movie we have all been waiting to see.
