'The Wolverine' is poised to set Hugh Jackman back on the path as the loner X-Men Logan before the actor reprises the same role in the now Bryan Singer-directed 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' But this is not gonna be like 'Origins,' folks. Yes, the film takes place in Japan, but aside from that, James Mangold has revealed this next chapter in the Wolverine saga will have our hero undergo more personal struggles as he traverses through this new world of the samurai.
To help you imagine this new Wolverine, a pic has been released from the film, starring our buddy once again shirtless and ready to tear his enemies to shreds.

Though we're still a ways out from the release of James Mangold's 'The Wolverine,' this week has been populated with next summer's biggest films announcing themselves through trailers. Though the Hugh Jackman 'X-Men' spin-off film doesn't seem to be unleashing a trailer this week, they have put out a motion poster.
Director James Mangold is about to finish up production on 'The Wolverine' with only a few more days of production left, so that means we should be getting close to seeing the first trailer, right? After a Q&A with Mangold and the film's star Hugh Jackman, the first Japanese calligraphy-style poster was revealed, and the first official photos emerged not too long before. But seriously, we want to see the trailer!

The latest issue of Empire has gifted us with a new image from James Mangold's 'The Wolverine,' (which you can see after the break) but perhaps more importantly is a straight-from-Mangold revelation regarding where exactly this film fits into the 'X-Men' movie universe. Is it indeed a direct follow-up to 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' as previously believed? And will it be consistent with the mythology presented in the other 'X-Men' flicks?
