More Behind-the-Scenes Images From The Wolverine

Much like he did previously, The Wolverine director James Mangold took to Twitter this morning and posted several behind-the-scenes images from the upcoming film. Check them out with his 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.
