2 Posters and 8 Images for THE WOLVERINE

Hugh Jackman Stars in THE WOLVERINE

Today, we have two new posters and eight shiny new images for "The Wolverine". The reboot is directed by James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma", "Walk the Line") and will follow Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) on his adventures in modern day Japan, where he will draw his indestructible claws to battle evil samurais and mutant threats.

The posters are pretty bad, particularly the first one with Wolverine surrounded by samurais, which just looks like some kid playing with Photoshop. The second poster is so over-the-top you'll find it hard not to laugh. The images, however provide our first look at the supporting characters and actors: Tao Okamoto as Mariko, a woman Wolverine has to protect from the Yakuza, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, the typical-looking comic book villainess, and Rila Fukushima as the warrior girl Yukio.

"The Wolverine" opens in 3D on July 26th.

Check out the posters and images after the jump (click images to enlarge).

Official Synopsis

"Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis 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, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before."
