With the release of the newest issue of EMPIRE magazine this month featuring Henry Cavill as Superman in the cover spotlighting Man of Steel, new information has also sprouted out for several other movies, including Hugh Jackman's next outing as the feral mutant and X-man Logan in The Wolverine! To that end, a new pic and details have surfaces for the movie, showcasing what we can expect from the ol' caknucklehead's next flick!
The new pic in particular shows Wolvie in nice threads, with claws unsheathed and ready to get some.
With the movie based on Japan and getting inspired by the classic Wolverine storyline by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the movie's producer Hutch Parker gave a little insight as to what fans can expect from Logan's newest solo flick. SPOILERS be here, so read at your own risk:
“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.”
