Hugh Jackman battles ninjas in the first trailer for The Wolverine
It’s still early this morning, but the first official trailer THE WOLVERINE has been released and I’m still trying to decide how I feel about it. I love, love, love that they’re doing something new with the character by dropping into Japan and having him battle new villains, ninjas and crime bosses. But I’m not so crazy about the “I want to be mortal” angle of the story. Obviously, we don’t want a mortal Wolverine, we want an invincible, angry Wolverine. But Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold have insisted they’re giving us the Wolverine we’ve been waiting for, so we’ll just have to wait and see. You can watch the trailer below and decide for yourself if you think this is the movie that will finally do justice to The Wolverine.
THE WOLVERINE stars Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima and James Fraser. The James Mangold directed film is set to open in theaters on July 26th, 2013.
