Hugh Jackman reveals the bad guy for The Wolverine from director James Mangold
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
During the panel for his upcoming robot boxing film REAL STEEL, Hugh Jackman discussed some of his upcoming projects, specifically THE WOLVERINE which will be directed by James Mangold. Looks like filming will begin this coming October and will be filmed from the script written by Chris McQuarrie. Here’s a statement straight from Wolverine’s mouth, “ Chris McQuarrie has written a fantastic script and it should turn out really good. I’ll fight the Silver Samurai in it so that should be exciting. Most of the filming will take place in Japan.” Are you shocked? If you know anything about Wolverine’s mythology then probably not, but I’ll give you a quick rundown.
The Silver Samurai is the half-brother of the lady Wolverine is in love with, and apparently samurai’s aren’t too keen on their relatives dating mutants. Needless to say big sword fighting scenes are on the horizon in this next film. Look for THE WOLVERINE to be released sometime in 2012.
