There are still a few more months to go until we get our first look at “The Wolverine.” The movie wraps filming tomorrow, but director James Mangold has confirmed that a trailer won’t be coming out until next year.
“Contrary to reports, there will be no trailer on THE HOBBIT for THE WOLVERINE. You will get a glimpse early 2013. I promise,” Mangold tweeted.
A glimpse? That’s it? Considering how long we’ve had to wait for this new Wolverine movie to be made, it seems like Mangold should give us a little more than that. But since “The Wolverine” won’t hit theaters until July 26, 2013, it seems as though we’re going to have to be a little bit more patient.
Mangold also tweeted, “One day of production left on THE WOLVERINE! Best crew I ever worked with. Thank you. I will miss everyone.”
This new look at Wolverine will delve into questions about Logan’s immortality. It takes place after the events of “X-Men: The Last Stand,” and a recently-released synopsis teases how the Japan setting of “The Wolverine” affects the film.
“Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed,” the synopsis reads. “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.”
