But this isn't Logan's first trip to the Land of the Rising Sun or his first encounter with the Yashida clan. Based on a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall )and the comic book by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont.

AlexDeLarge87 - 10/26/2012, 6:51 AM
No he is gonna fight against that black haired ghost chick from The Ring in that pit.

Or the Pit Witch from Army of Darkness.
DrDoom - 10/26/2012, 6:51 AM
Wendigo is Canadian . . . . and boring.
DrRockso - 10/26/2012, 6:52 AM
The japs? C'mon, bro
AlexDeLarge87 - 10/26/2012, 6:53 AM
Only japanese Witch
JatevinM - 10/26/2012, 6:53 AM
Um Japs is a racist term
BlueDevil80 - 10/26/2012, 7:01 AM
So is this before or after the X-Men series, or discontinuous continuity? Looks like he has bone claws there.
MarkJulian - 10/26/2012, 7:03 AM
@BlueDevil80 Set after all the X-Men films but there will be flashbacks.
MarkJulian - 10/26/2012, 7:03 AM
@Gambit89 There's an older and younger version of Shingen Yashida in the film.
ElConquistador - 10/26/2012, 7:04 AM
Must be a flashback scene since it appears he is flashin the bone claws..

@camlabar HA!
PapaMidnite - 10/26/2012, 7:12 AM
Still not interested.
Jolt17 - 10/26/2012, 7:18 AM
Looking good.
GiantNerd0720 - 10/26/2012, 7:18 AM
Down in a hole, feeling so small.
ElBicho - 10/26/2012, 7:21 AM
Maybe he'll fight a Rancor...
comicNERD1031 - 10/26/2012, 7:23 AM
Bone claws for the win! I hope Cable appears after credits to set up DOFP.
Greengo - 10/26/2012, 7:36 AM
RISE
GiantNerd0720 - 10/26/2012, 7:43 AM
I hope it doesn't take him 30 mins of screen time to get out of that hole. ;) Eh? Eh?

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 10/26/2012, 8:28 AM
The f is up with this shoulders?
Tufasrox - 10/26/2012, 8:30 AM
Maybe it's the pit from Slumdog Millionaire and he's dug out the fecal matter?
Supes17 - 10/26/2012, 8:30 AM
Aeyan - 10/26/2012, 8:36 AM
Not feeling the bony claws one bit.
jimpinto24 - 10/26/2012, 8:48 AM
Like I said before, I'm really looking forward to seeing The Wolverine. The Wolverine is shaping up to be better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
CPBuff22 - 10/26/2012, 8:57 AM
OHHHHHHH So it was bone claw chunks stuck in the wall of Buffalo Bill's pit in Shining. Its all coming together now.
BuckyCap - 10/26/2012, 9:01 AM
For God's sake, Jap is not a racist term. I had a lab TA from Japan who referred to himself as a Jap. It is a shortened version of the full term "Japanese." It is no different than calling someone who is British a "Brit."

Get over yourselves.
Theunderdog - 10/26/2012, 9:19 AM
we might see some of flashback of wolverine during the war and his first to trip to japan
OptimusPrimeTime - 10/26/2012, 9:30 AM
Yah this has to be a flashback. Or it's going to be at the very beginning of the film, similar to the war montage at the beginning of XMO:W.

It put's the Joe Dirt in the hole!!!

Spectre94 - 10/26/2012, 9:37 AM
I'm just confused why he has bone claws if its after X3
Sortis - 10/26/2012, 9:38 AM
He starts climbing his way outta there with his claws and i'm gonna go apecrap in the theater lol
MarvelChile - 10/26/2012, 10:40 AM
"Hey Batman, how you came out of the hole?"
masterhater - 10/26/2012, 10:44 AM
Seriously bone claws!!! WTF!
HeadPool420 - 10/26/2012, 10:58 AM
Some people must not read that much. Months ago it was said this movie will have flashbacks.
MaxEisenhardt - 10/26/2012, 11:33 AM
I hope the MPAA rating is, indeed, R. That would mean a lot of slicing and dicing, something Wolverine has hardly, if ever, displayed on-screen.
MisterMagurlypse - 10/26/2012, 11:44 AM
Baleman....LOL, hilarious!!!!
Originator2000 - 10/26/2012, 12:10 PM
This better be a flashback.
pointman - 10/26/2012, 12:15 PM
