Hugh Jackman starring in "The Wolverine", which hits AMC Theatres this July, will mark the 6th time he has reprised his role as the sharp-clawed character. The first official trailer for the James Mangold production, is expected to be released at the end of March.
In order to keep momentum high until that drops, Mangold has turned to his Twitter account to release three new black-and-white photos, with the words "three people I adore".
The top shot is obviously Jackman but the next photos are our first introduction to the ladies in the film. The first one is Rila Fukushima, who will be portraying Yukio in the film. Yukio is a trained assassin for Lord Shingen, who is head of the deadly Yashida clan.
The second female actress is Tao Okamoto, who will be portraying Mariko. Mariko is Shingen’s daughter and Wolverine’s soul mate. While Mangold can't unfold the entire storyline of Wolverine in 2 hours, fans of the comics know that he and Mariko were almost married.
