That "Rising Soon" tagline is beyond cheesy.

They ought to include Sunfire. He was one of my favourite characters in the "Logan in Japan" saga.

There are a lot of underrated villains in comic books, SS is one of them.

Viper is rumored to be in the film too.

Would have been good if they saved Lady Deathstrike for this film instead of wasting her on X2.

I'm hoping that a Muramasa plays a role in the film, should be a given.

Do we have an reason to believe this will be any better then the last one? It had some nice promo shots too.

At this point, it really is a waste considering they have a great actor playing Wolverine. It would have been like if Thor ended up being shitty despite having Chris Hemsworth play the title character.

I think this will be much better considering they aren't cramming a bunch of fan favorites in the film just for the hell of it like Blob or Gambit.

Plus it looks like this one actually has a decent script and much darker than the cheesy Origins. I have hopes for this one, I think Fox got a lot of shit towards the first film so they'll be more cautious with this one.

I hope you are right. At the moment the only thing that interests me is the sequel to First Class. I'd rather see them use that as a way to reboot the universe. Start fresh like the old X-Men movies never happened. New cast.

Jackman did say it'll be like an standalone film so again, it looks like it is headed in the right direction.

Hugh Jackman Says The Wolverine Will Feel Like a Standalone Movie

It will please many of you who weren't fans of the first Wolverine film to know that the new film won't be a direct sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

In an interview with Total Film magazine (via Coventry Telegraph) about where The Wolverine fits into the landscape of the other X-Men films, Jackman said:

"We've deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture. With an all-new cast and setting it in Japan, it's going to give us a whole new visual aesthetic. The approach to character means we won't be overloaded with mutants and teams and the like, so it'll be more character-based. I think in many ways it will feel like a completely different X-Men film."

Coming to theaters on July 26, 2013, the James Mangold-directed action adventure co-stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.

In the film, Logan begins a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. Since Logan won't take "no" for an answer, it puts him into battle with her father and her samurai-sword-wielding brothers and Silver Samurai.

The Wolverine? No. I don't think it will connect at all.

The cover you posted is what I was getting at. Rumors are they will do a "Days of the Future Past" story-line for the next First Class movie. Doing so would easily allow them to work it into a film universe reboot and start fresh with the characters in more modern times. smile.gif
