20th Century Fox is kicking its marketing campaign for James Mangold’s (3:10 to Yuma) superhero pic The Wolverine into high gear this week, and it all started this morning with a batch of new images and two new posters. Now comes the continuation of the “trailers for trailers” trend, as Fox has released a six-second teaser for the film’s first trailer on Vine. It’s basically an incredibly brief flash of a lot of action with zero context, but the film does look to be fairly intense. Also, is that Jean Grey I spot? Fox will release a 20-second teaser of the trailer tomorrow, and then on Wednesday we get the full first trailer. Welcome to the future, folks.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser teaser trailer. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova. The Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th.

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.
