The studio has released several new pics from James Mangold’s The Wolverine, and the claws come out as Hugh Jackman faces off against everything from ninjas to sexy seductresses.
We get our first good look at new villain Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) rocking her comic-inspired green costume. The new pics also show off more of the Japanese setting, and this definitely looks like a different animal than the rest of the X-Men franchise.
Here’s the synopsis:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, 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.
Check out the new pics below and let us know what you think.
The Wolverine opens July 26.
