A new, more informative synopsis has been release for The Wolverine. The synopsis basically reiterates what we’ve heard from Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold—this will be a much darker Wolverine movie. I usually get a little tired with grim-and-gritty, but that’s always been Wolverine, and so this sounds like a good fit.
Hit the jump for the new official synopsis. The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.
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.
