In all the fuss of the election yesterday, this new image from The Wolverine slipped through the cracks. Coming from the official Facebook page, he seems to be contemplating a hole in a cave, much as Batman has done over several Christopher Nolan films.
The sequel/prequel/interquel to 2009′s X-Men: Origins – Wolverine is set in Japan,and is said to be loosely based on Frank Miller (Sin City, The Spirit) and Chris Claremont’s 1982 comic book arc Wolverine, which sees the main man travel to Japan, where he falls for Mariko, the daughter of a Japanese crime lord. Our spies report that there is a funeral, an attack on a funeral and plenty of Silver Samurai action.
Directed by James Mangold with a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, it is set for a 26 July 2013 release from Fox.
