Director James Mangold has released a new poster for his upcoming film The Wolverine featuring Silver Samurai. It’s in the same vein as the previously released minimalist poster featuring Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and it really is quite striking. The film’s CinemaCon trailer gave us our first brief look at Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, the sword-wielding mutant who is the head of Clan Yashida, and it seems like we can expect more promo materials featuring him in the near future.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, “The Wolverine” finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, and Rila Fukushima round out the cast. The Wolverine hits theaters July 26th, 2013.
