Wow! IRON MAN 3 was near the top of my list of anticipated summer films, but after watching the first trailer for THE WOLVERINE, I might have a new highly anticipated film. I wasn’t a fan of the first 3 X-MEN movies or the first Wolverine movie, but man, does this look like it kicks major ass. It also doesn’t look like it’s loaded with outrageous action scenes, but appears to be more about the dark undertones of Wolverine’s persona. It’s directed by James Mangold who made IDENTITY, WALK THE LINE, 3:10 TO YUMA, the underrated KNIGHT & DAY, and the masterpiece COPLAND….. so that’s a very, very good thing! Summer just got a lot more exciting! THE WOLVERINE slashes its way to cinemas on July 26th. Can’t wait!
