New Behind-the Scenes Photos From The Wolverine

Things have been quiet for The Wolverine since the trailers was released a few weeks ago, but today director James Mangold has revealed several new behind-the-scenes photos from the film. Check out the photos with Mangold’s captions below!

Hitting 3D and 2D theaters on July 26, the anticipated film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents 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.
