Get ready—'cause the Silver Samurai has been spotted on the Wolverine set. Some clever paparazzi have caught actor Will Yun Lee in and out of his infamous costume. Not only that, but we also have a sneak peek at Wolverine's newer, more practical claws.

The Silver Samurai, aka Kenuichio Harada, is a mutant of Japanese descent. He has the ability to channel energy into objects, most notably his sword. Once it's charged, he can slice and dice through almost anything. The only exception being adamantium, which Wolverine is conveniently covered in.

Below you can catch a glimpse of the Silver Samurai's costume. It looks like they're sticking to the original design from the comic. We also have a behind-the-scenes photo of Yun Lee without the armor.

On a side note, Hugh Jackman's stunt double was spotted sporting Wolverine's weapons of choice. The claws were out in full force. We hope this means the CGI versions have been scrapped. Those things looked horribly cartoonish in X-Men Origins.

The Wolverine opens in theaters July 26.
