'The Wolverine' is not what you expect. It is very much a self-contained, somewhat “smaller” superhero movie. More straightforward thriller/noir/espionage film than CGI-heavy slugfest. It's less of a surprise, however, when you look at director James Mangold's body of work.
From 'Cop Land' to 'Girl, Interrupted' to '3:10 To Yuma' to 'Walk the Line' to 'Knight and Day' (which I really liked, by the way) to 'Identity' to 'Heavy,' he's had a go at nearly every genre. Now he's teamed up with Hugh Jackman, taking Logan from atop a hermit's mountain to the bullet trains of Japan.
I had the good fortune to speak with Mangold recently, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to movies.

Just days after the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' cast and crew surprised the Hall H audience at Comic-Con 2013 with a panel featuring debut footage, the Bryan Singer-directed 'First Class' sequel has dropped the first two posters.
So, the rumor has been for quite some time that 'Game of Thrones' actor Peter Dinklage would be playing Bolivar Trask in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' It turns out that rumor is correct. And that rumor about Omar Sy as Bishop? Also true.
The Comic-Con 2013 panel from 20th Century Fox was pegged as a must-see event at the convention; not only were fans foaming at the mouth for the latest offerings from 'The Wolverine' and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' -- the former prepping for release on July 26 -- but also for some sort of reveal for Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
Who doesn't love the 'X-Men' around here? We know that we surely do. And in honor of San Diego Comic-Con kicking off, we figured we'd showcase one of the most iconic characters in comic book history: Jean Grey as the Dark Phoenix.
Comic-Con 2013 is almost upon us, and one of the more hoped-for panels is the one for 20th Century Fox. Fans have been hoping to catch an update or two on Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' and, though shy of an official announcement, a panel will reportedly happened. In fact, we've already stumbled on some of the "big surprises" coming our way.
After 'X-Force' comic creator Robert Liefeld revealed that 20th Century Fox had a film adaptation of his series "in development," word was that some form of announcement would be made during next week's Comic-Con convention in San Diego. Well, Christmas has come a bit early.
In the wake of 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' 20th Century Fox planned a series of 'X-Men Origins' movies, with each film focusing on the early years of a particular mutant. As you know, a Wolverine one got made and the much talked about Magneto movie did not. However, a statement from a certain influential comic book writer has the internet buzzing again -- what became of that Magneto movie? Will it ever actually get made?
The 'X-Men' franchise has generally been kind to 20th Century Fox, with its massive stable of mutant superheroes leading to hits like 'X2' and 'X-Men: First Class.' However, it looks like the studio is looking to expand its horizons a bit and cast a spotlight on a corner of their share of the Marvel Universe that has been neglected so far. Are you ready for an 'X-Force' movie?
Bryan Singer has treated us to yet another mysterious behind-the-scenes photo from the set of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' this time giving us an early glimpse of the much talked-about character of Quicksilver (aka Pietro Maximoff)!
