Silver Samurai Stands Tall in New Poster for THE WOLVERINE

     May 4, 2013


Summer movie season has officially begun with the release of Iron Man 3 this weekend, and now a new poster has landed online for another of this year’s superhero pics.  In the latest trailer for The Wolverine, we caught a glimpse of the villain Silver Samurai.  Given the reveal, director James Mangold has now decided to share a Silver Samurai-centric new poster for the film.  It’s a really swell piece of art that’s in keeping with the Japanese-influenced initial posters for The Wolverine, and I’m interested to see how many more posters like this we’ll be getting.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  The film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova.  The Wolverine opens on July 26th.

As we are beginning to offer glimpses of Silver Samurai, here’s a new great one sheet image for #thewolverine


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.

    Looking forward to ‘The Wolverine’! Best comic book movie this year. Man of steel has an ugly superman and iron man 3 had jj abrams writtenall over it, it was awful.

    ‘The Wolverine’ looks awesome, ‘The Wolverine’ trailer itself is better than iran man 3 and anything i have seen so far for superman.

    Okay, I have this theory because I dream of it before. the guy who Wolverine saved in the WWII take the Logan’s healing ability to save himself from death and he is the Silver Samurai. Damn, I know, that suck. But it’s totally much more sense than the “death wish noble” crap the guy said in the trailer.
    Your opinions, guys.
