Taking place after ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and based on the landmark story by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, ‘The Wolverine’ finds our hero in a state of isolation in the Land of the Rising Sun, where “samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw” as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. The film starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, and Brian Tee will be in theaters on July 26, 2013.
