New 'The Wolverine' Poster Offers an Artistic Look at the Silver SamuraiJacob Hall |
The recent trailers for 'The Wolverine' have given us our first good look at one of the film's main villains, the Silver Samurai. Now, director James Mangold has unveiled a new poster spotlighting the character...and it's a bit cooler than you'd expect. Check it out below.
Remember the incredible first teaser poster that depicted Wolverine through a traditional Japanese art style? This Silver Samurai poster is its direct companion, giving us a stylized look at the hulking mutant bad guy. These posters have been so cool that we can almost forgive the horrifyingly awful one-sheets that that have otherwise permeated this film's marketing. Almost.
Mangold revealed the poster through his Twitter account:
As we are beginning to offer glimpses of Silver Samurai, here's a new great one sheet image for #thewolverine
