New Image From The Wolverine
And plot details from the film

We like to think that when Wolverine gets dressed up, he calls it getting "snikted out". Sadly, we doubt that's the case - but at least he's looking spiffy in this new image from The Wolverine, which shows the adamantium-clawed mutant in atypically respectable form.

Also in the new issue of Empire, we spoke to X-producer Hutch Parker, who told us a bit more about the plot. "We pick up Logan in a very isolated state, full of self-loathing. He is sought out by a young Asian woman for reasons he doesn't fully understand, who is asking him to follow her to Japan where he is meant to reconnect with someone from his past.

"And what you'll come to find is that this is someone he spent prison-time with in Nagasaki. And the legacy of that experience - effectively Logan saved him - is that this man is on his deathbed, and is looking to give him a gift, to thank him for the life he's had.

"But this gift draws Logan into a very complex and very unexpected world within both contemporary Japan and, to some extent, the feudal history of Japan. He's so in isolation, so out of his element. It's a much more powerful distillation of his character than you've seen before."

Says Hugh Jackman himself, returning to the character for the sixth time, "I still don't think we've seen the definitive Wolverine. And the longer I play the character, the more the desire to get him right grows. The more I speak to fans and explore his world, the more it means to me. I understand the character and the legacy and I don't feel, up to this movie, that we've completely lived up to that. So that's what I intend to do."

Oh, that sounds good. The Wolverine hits screens on July 26. For more Wolverine make sure you pick up the new issue of Empire magazine.

Logan
Sounds like the film will not only be drawing on the famous Claremont/Miller mini-series but also Brian K Vaughan's "Logan" miniseries which told the story of Wolverine escaping a POW camp near Nagasaki around the time of the bomb, as well as his return to Japan in the present. Great story worth checking out. More

RE: If they can't get it right by the sixth attempt
I thought the "definitive Wolverine" was in X-Men 2 myself. As soon as he jumps through the air to claw one of those soldiers to death in the mansion, I thought "Yeah... ] is Wolverine!"... not sure it'd be possible to make a better Wolverine than that. But I'm excited for this movie, despite the last one being crap. It's looking really promising. Also, I consider it the fifth time. The five seconds in First Class doesn't really count, does it.

I can't wait to see the movie where Elvis comes back from the dead to claim back his pork chop sideburns from Wolverine and kicks his ass with karate while singing "Devil In Disguise." More
