Twitter is quickly becoming the most valuable resource for directors of superhero movies to get the word out about their films. Both Marc Webb and Bryan Singer have made regular use of the social media tool as they put together The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, respectively, but James Mangold has been getting in on the action as well with The Wolverine. And his most recent contribution to the internet world are four new images from the behind-the-scenes of the new blockbuster.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th.

Official synopsis for The Wolverine:

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.
