Hey Bub, Watch This New Trailer For ‘The Wolverine’

wolverine thumbWhile this summer is packed with superhero and comic book movies, including Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel, there still is room for Hugh Jackman to reprise his role as one of the most popular mutants around, Wolverine.  The Wolverine is the latest adventure for old man Logan, taking place after the events of all of the previous X-Men films and setting itself in Japan.  The story is based in part on one of the most famous comic arcs for the character, developed by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.  While X-Men Origins: Wolverine left many fans disappointed, The Wolverine looks like a step in a much better direction.  Continue on to see the new trailer as well as a batch of very cool, character-based posters.

Personally, I think this trailer looks great.  Wolverine has never been one of my favorite characters, but his character is only as good as the story that is built around him and both the original comic and what I can tell from this film seem to be playing that aspect up.  We get just enough plot detail as well as an understanding of where Logan’s mind is at, during this point in his life.  I can only hope that the film does not over-stuff itself with mutants, a common problem with all the X-Men films, but at the same time, I am happy to see Silver Samurai present, as that is a character I really enjoy (albeit pretty one-note, but still like a less whiny Omega Red).  Regardless, I am optimistic, as I like what I am seeing and the people involved.

Official Film Synopsis:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), 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.
