It's only Wednesday, but it's probably safe to go ahead and proclaim it Wolverine Week. Following the release of a teaser trailer and a bunch of posters for The Wolverine was released, 20th Century Fox has premiered both the domestic and international trailers for the upcoming film. The new trailers give more information on the plot, and show at least two more Marvel characters that comic fans will be excited to see.It looks like the new movie will focus on the Clawed Canadian as he ventures to Japan to meet an old acquaintance with an enticing offer. More importantly to fans of disposable ninjas, The Hand have a larger role in the trailers as demonstrated by an action scene in a snowy village.

What looks like the Silver Samurai and Viper (sans green hair) make an appearance too. The Silver Samurai, created by Steve Gerber and Bob Brown in 1974, has often fought against, and very occasionally, with Wolverine throughout his publication history, while Viper, created by Jim Steranko in 1969, is a long-standing villain of the Marvel universe.

The Wolverine is slated for a July 26 release, and stars Hugh Jackman (Wolverine: Origins), Will Yun Lee (Hawaii Five-0), and Tao Okamoto.
