The Wolverine (2013) Details
- Wolverine: Samurai (Japan)
- Wolverine 2 (working title)
- Wolverine - L'immortale (Italy)
In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
There are many aspects of the Japanese story line from the 1982 Chris Claremont and Frank Miller Wolverine comic, partly because Hugh Jackman is a fan of that part of the original graphic novel.
