The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold recently sat down for a Q & A session.  They answered questons from all over the world, and it sounds like this will be a very different Wolverine film.  Focusing on the berserker rage that made Wolverine one of the most popular comic book characters ever.  The video is on a loop, so don’t be alarmed by the length of the video.  It simply loops again and again. 

The Wolverine, also starring Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova, opens July 26th, 2013.


Some of the highlights;

  • The Wolverine takes place after the events of the other X-Men movies, finding Logan alone and isolated, but the film also exists in its own world.
  • Jackman and Mangold want to make this Wolverine the most rage-fueled character you’ve ever seen.
  • The Wolverine also takes Logan out of his comfort zone and drops in him Japan, subjecting him to a clash of cultures and the uncertainty of knowing whether or not he can trust the new people around him.
  • This version of Wolverine will be more grounded in his physicality, less focused on over-the-top superpowers and will challenge him with a weakness that his enemies attempt to exploit.
  • Wolverine will face a number of enemies, but continues to battle within himself, grappling with the loss of everyone he’s ever known and the burden of living forever.
  • Additionally, we’ve heard that The Wolverine will be getting a 3D release.

What do you think?  They stated that this film will take place after the other X-films so it will be interesting to see where the photo below fits in.  Notice the bone claws.
