We’ve been getting teased with new images from The Wolverine since September, and three more have arrived online today.  Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman have promised that the second Wolverine spinoff will be true to the spirit of the badass character fans have come to know and love.  In fact, in one of the images, which were scanned from Total Film, Jackman is quoted as saying, “It’s the badass Wolverine I know everybody wants to see.”  I’m not sure who we were seeing the last five times (I’ll count the First Class cameo), but no one’s going to turn down seeing that version of the character again.  As for when we might actually see the character in motion, Mangold has tweeted that a sneak peek of the trailer will arrive on March 26th, the 1-minute and 51-second debut trailer will premiere online on the 27th, and the trailer will arrive in 2D and 3D in theaters on the 29th.

Hit the jump to check out the new images.  The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana KhodchenkovaThe Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th. [Update: We’ve been asked to take the images down.]

Here’s the official synopsis for The Wolverine:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis 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, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
