New ‘The Wolverine’ Movie Teaser And Posters Deliver Ninja-Fighting Action [Video]
There have been a few poster and picture teases this week for the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel, The Wolverine, but aside from a Vine preview, most footage of the movie has stayed hidden. Luckily for eager fans, MTV has released a 30-second trailer showcasing Yakuza fights, swords, and a furry Hugh Jackman. What’s more, new movie posters have surfaced on The Wolverine Facebook page, featuring the hero wielding a samurai sword.While the teaser is light on plot details, viewers can get a clear look at Yukio, Wolverine’s ninja-pal and occasional love-interest, fighting some Yakuza, and a shadowy sword/claw fight.
The upcoming movie will be largely-based on Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s seminal 1982 Wolverine mini-series, focusing on his travels through Japan. While everyone’s favorite disposable ninja clan, The Hand, will be appearing, it’s as-yet unknown how closely the movie will be relating to either Marvel’s established continuity, or the X-Men films and previous Wolverine movie’s canon.
The Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26. You can see the latest teaser and posters, below.
