Director James Mangold Unveils A Few Behind The Scene Snaps From THE WOLVERINE
Director James Mangold has unvieled a few behind the scenes pictures from the filming of 20th Century Fox's The Wolverine starring Hugh Jackman. Be sure to visit our X-Men section for all things mutant.
In a previous article, I looked at the debut domestic and international trailers for James Mangold's The Wolverine and compared that against the source material, the comic book story from writer Chris Claremont and artist Frank Miller. In that write-up I noticed that a lot of scenes were visually inspired by Miller's comic book panels but a few scenes are fresh creations from Mangold and co. Case in point, the battle on top of the bullet train and the funeral scene, both featured in the behind-the-scenes photos below, did not occur in the comic book.
Spinning out of the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Logan (Hugh Jackman) travels to Japan where he falls for the beautiful Mariko Yashida (Tao Okamoto) to the grave displeasure of her father Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi) and her half-brother, the fearsome Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee). 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.
