For the life of me, I cannot understand the main plot point of The Wolverine. Sure, it ain’t easy being an unstoppable Canadian with the comeback power of Madonna and the same hands. But with claw popping. And it doesn’t hurt being practically immortal either.
Sure, an eternal life can be difficult at times, but hey! You’ve got eternity to sort those problems out! Or get the living crap beaten out of you by a massive Japanese Silver Samurai battlesuit in the new trailer for James Mangold’s upcoming film.
It’s a very similar look at what we’ve already seen so far, but with some longer bits thrown in for good measure. The Silver Samurai scene is shaping up to be stereotypically Japanese because robots, while Svetlana Khodchenkova’s Viper probably gives the creepiest french kisses ever. And don’t get me started on seeing a bed filled with leftover human skin on it, in the mornings. But the bravest thing that this film is going for?
Admitting that McG’s X-Men 3: The Last Stand actually happened. Still any excuse to see Jean Grey is valid in my mind. The Wolverine is out in June, and stars Hugh Jackman and all the ninjas in Japan.
