Now that we’re past the “Man of Steel” and “Iron Man 3” frenzies, there’s another familiar superhero who will be returning to the big screen later next month. Getting ready for the July 26th premiere of “The Wolverine,” 20th Century Fox has released a stockpile of images for us all to peruse, including a new international poster and a bunch of stills.
In “The Wolverine,” Wolverine aka Logan (Hugh Jackman) goes to modern-day Japan and encounters a few life-changing people and things from his past. The newly released photos include the obligatory shot of a very ripped Hugh Jackman along with some production stills of Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), described as a slippery seductress who becomes involved with Logan (at least in the Marvel comics universe) and also featured heavily in the latest trailer.
To add more intrigue to interest, the latest banner and poster not only feature Viper but also another possible love interest, Yukio (Rila Fukushima), a samurai. In the poster, both women have their game faces on as Logan flexes in the foreground. Do you think they’ve got Logan’s back or are about to run him through? Will they give Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) a run for her money? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below. [MTV/Comic Book Movie]
