wolverine photo 2 'The Wolverine' photos see Hugh Jackman fighting in Japan

A series of new photos from “The Wolverine” have been released by 20th Century Fox. The images show Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) on his travels and battles through Japan. There is also a focus on a deadly assassin named Yukio (Rila Fukushima), who fights alongside Wolverine.
Though originally said to be a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” the film actually takes place after “X-Men: The Last Stand,” the final part in the series’ original trilogy. So far the movie has gotten a trailer and poster ahead of it’s July 26 release.
It was revealed in a Vine video that Famke Janssen has a cameo appearance as Jean Grey, though her character died in “The Last Stand.” When asked about it, Jackman says, “Yes, we saw her die at the end of ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ but in this movie, she has a presence, which I think is vital to the movie, particularly for him confronting the most difficult thing within himself.” To see all of the photos, check out our gallery for “The Wolverine.”
