In less than a year, we'll see Hugh Jackman back as The Wolverine, and today we get a chance to look at the amazing teaser trailer.
Check it out!
This type of Japanese "ink wash" style painting seems to fit perfectly with the storyline of Logan travelling to Japan to train with a samurai warrior.
They film just gave a Live Chat today with Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold from the set, and here's that!
Also, here's more on that storyline from /Film:
This film is set after the previous X-Men films. The reason for that was Mangold and Jackman wanted to create a movie that was in its own world and didn’t have to answer to other movies. That means that all the other X-Men are gone and Jackman said the character is at the lowest point we’ve ever seen him.
Since taking on the role in 2000, Jackman has wanted to film this particular story because he loved the idea of Wolverine as a tragic hero. Plus the fact that the character is the opposite of Japanese culture, not being one for tradition or rules, set up a great juxtaposition.
Mangold said The Outlaw Josey Wales was a big influence on this film because it was a neat and concise way of immediately setting a character up on a journey of loss, rage and revenge.
We all know Wolverine can’t be hurt but, in this film, we’ll learn what his “kryptonite” is.
