We’re two weeks away from seeing Hugh Jackman return to theaters everywhere as everyone’s favorite X-man, so that means that the publicity team behind ‘The Wolverine’ is kicking it into high gear now. Earlier this week, we got the first clip from the film, but now not only do we have the second clip, but we have a new featurette as well.
In the newest featurette for the next installment of Fox’s X-Men franchise, Logan steps into the spotlight and his status as the ultimate outsider is explored. Aside from some interviews, we have a ton of clips tied together to show us exactly where Wolverine is after ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’. You can check out the video below:
Then after watching that, you can see the second clip from James Mangold’s upcoming film. Here we see our hero in another violent encounter at a funeral that we’ve seen bits and pieces of in leaked set photos and trailers up until this point:
Finally, if you wanted to know more about what the man once known as James Howlett is getting into in the Land of the Rising Sun, here’s the synopsis for the film:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.
