Yesterday, we got a featurette for Logan (Hugh Jackman) for The Wolverine, and now we have one for “Harada” (Will Yun Lee). Harada, also known as “The Silver Samurai” in the comics, describes his character as the leader of a clan of “super-ninjas” whose sole purpose is to defend Mariko (Tao Okamoto). His character is also skilled at parkour and archery, and I suppose you have to beef-up anyone without mutant powers if they’re going to even have a chance against Wolverine, although he loses his healing powers at some point in the story. We know that the Silver Samurai is in the movie, but this featurette doesn’t divulge any details on that character, so it’s possible that he’s unrelated to Harada (but I wouldn’t count on it).
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, 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.
