It’s not something I would expect to see Logan in whilst bearing claws, but hey, he looks good! And, well, on the set, Hugh Jackman is Wolverine, especially with that “look” in his eyes. No doubt he’s willing to do some damage to something or someone.
As for more of the storyline, spoil yourself away, but if you follow the comics, then it might not be much of a spoiler for you:
We pick up Logan in a very isolated state, full of self-loathing. He is sought out by a young Asian woman for reasons he doesn’t fully understand, who is asking him to follow her to Japan where he is meant to reconnect with someone he spent prison-time with in Nagasaki. And the legacy of that experience – effectively Logan saved him – is that this man is on his deathbed, and is looking to give him a gift, to thank him for the life he’s had. But this gift draws Logan into a very complex and very unexpected world within both contemporary Japan, and to some degree the feudal history of Japan. The quality of this story is that it takes Logan on such a challenging personal journey. He’s so in isolation, so out of his element. It’s a much more powerful distillation of his character than you’ve seen before. It’s why people have always love this particular story.
Don’t worry folks, the teaser trailer for ‘The Wolverine’ will be your Valentine’s Day (February 14) gift when you bring your girlfriend/boyfriend to see ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’. Just get there early to catch it!
