The Wolverine

By DAVID WEINER

March 31, 2013

Release Date: July 26

The Plot: Logan (Hugh Jackman), the eternal warrior and outsider, arrives in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Wolverine confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.

Why It's a Must-See: Out on his own without The X-Men, this promising Wolverine premise may just allow audiences to forget the overstuffed fast-food mess that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film's storyline is inspired by the celebrated Japanese story arc featuring the Silver Samurai that's taken from the 1982 Wolverine comic book, promising a truer take on the character than previous Wolverine-involved flicks. Plus, the bone claws are back!
