Before Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, he’ll first star in a solo adventure for James Mangold in ‘The Wolverine’. Taking place after ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and based on the landmark story by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, this film finds our hero in a state of isolation in the Land of the Rising Sun. ‘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.
