New Synopsis for The Wolverine
A brand new synopsis for director James Mangold’s The Wolverine has been released today. This new synopsis goes a little deeper into the plot than the initial synopsis, implying that we’ll likely be seeing a darker version of the character. It has been confirmed by both Mangold and star Hugh Jackman that The Wolverine will be a stand alone film and not a continuation of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film will also take place after the events of the original X-Men trilogy. Hit the jump to read the new synopsis.
The Wolverine stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova and will hit theaters on July 26th, 2013
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.
