If nothing else, a new trailer for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine serves one purpose – to remind us that the Hugh Jackman-starring film is coming out during the already-crammed summer blockbuster season. No knocks on the clawed one here, but am I the only one who can’t seem to remember that we’re getting a brand new X-Men tale within the next two months? That can’t be good, right? Especially when this one involves Logan going to Japan, getting all emo, and meeting up with a bunch of cool Marvel characters, including the Silver Samurai. Shouldn’t this be more on our radar?
Wait, did we say an emo Wolverine? Oh, that might be the problem right there. Snooze.
After the break, check out the newest trailer for The Wolverine, you know, if you’re still interested.
The Wolverine opens on July 26th.
