Summer Preview – The Wolverine

Leave a comment

Fans of the X-Men Franchise, GET EXCITED! A new trailer for the upcoming summer flick, The Wolverine, has been released. Not only do we get to see plenty shirtless Hugh Jackman, but there is also a brief glimpse of Famke Janssens’s Jean Grey (see it again in this teaser).

That’s right, people. Phoenix and Wolverine will once again be together on screen! But what does this mean?

Let’s dissect the trailer:

~ We know that The Wolverine takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand in which Grey/Phoenix died. Does the brief inclusion of Famke Janssen in the trailer mean a dream sequence? Is this the final push for Logan’s desire to be mortal?
~ We get our first glance at Svetlana Khodchenkova’s Viper, the baddie known for her use of toxins and poisons.
~ We also meet Yukio portrayed by Rila Fukushima. Yukio is a samurai, not a mutant.
~ Most of the trailer takes place in Japan, is this Wolverine’s way of escaping his mutant reality by leaving the school behind?

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m already counting down the minutes until the premiere on July 26th!
