Watch Wolverine Slice Through Japan

20th Century Fox

Many were initially dubious of another stand-alone Wolverine movie given the utter disappointment that was 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the newly released trailer for The Wolverine only quiets all concerns, it blows them to smithereens with one of the year's most kick-ass trailers!

"We've deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture," Jackman recently said. "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."
