Fox teased us all today with a brief blurb on The Wolverine. Here’s what they said;

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, THE WOLVERINE finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, 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.

“Changed Forever”? How much more can happen to change the poor guy. We already saw him lose his memory and get metal surgically grafted onto his skeleton. It looks like the film will lend from the Chris Claremont and Frank Miller series titled Wolverine, which follows our favorite clawed mutant as he makes his way through Japan.

Director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma & Walk the Line) has also been actively tweeting from the set. Here are a few;

movies I think about as I make #TheWolverine : Eastwood’s Josie Wales, Powell’s Back Narcissus, Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Marnie, Vertigo

Today I am starting an intense set piece of action and drama at the Yashida Compound set. Logan, Yukio and Shingen.

Just finished pages. Made some tweaks. Scribbled out fresh shot list. About to head to set for day 14 of THE WOLVERINE.

I have been a huge fan of X-men for a very long time and always look forward to their films.
