Full New Synopsis Revealed For THE WOLVERINE

Full New Synopsis Revealed For THE WOLVERINE

We already saw the brief plot synopsis for the James Mangold-directed film, The Wolverine. Described as a "Japanese noir picture with tentpole action," hit the jump to check out this full summary...


While we wait for the official trailer, studio has released this full plot synopsis for James Mangold's upcoming film, The Wolverine. The film is set after the original trilogy (and Origins), where we find Logan in Japan as he faces the ultimate nemesis. Here is the full thing:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.


Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova, The Wolverine is set to hit theatres on July 26, 2013.

I really hope this is good.
Dax - 11/15/2012, 8:31 AM
Oh, hell yeah. Bring on the definitive Wolverine.
ScarletJack - 11/15/2012, 8:33 AM
Well sounds more promosing than the synopsis from the first movie...Wolverine is an indestrutable killing machine that meets a whole bunch of mutants that have no signifigance to the storyline and he blows up a helicopter by.....slicing it... BOOM! Gambit....Groan...Deadpool.
Greengo - 11/15/2012, 8:33 AM
Last chance for this incarnation of Wolverine.

Hope it's a home run!
ScarletJack - 11/15/2012, 8:36 AM
Oh and I forgot, MAGIC BULLET! Hope that makes a comeback.
continuezero - 11/15/2012, 8:41 AM
Wolvie is completely misused just like Gambit just simply doesn't exist in this universe.
continuezero - 11/15/2012, 8:42 AM
Although I have some hope for this movie. I will give it a chance.
FireKnightRises - 11/15/2012, 8:42 AM
@ScarletJack
isn't he's really an indestructible killing machine like usually described in comics ?

he destroyed a car and a helicopter with his unbreakable claws is not that hard to believe
TheSoulEater - 11/15/2012, 8:42 AM
I know i'll get hate for this but, NO BROWN AND YELLOW TIGHTS!

AND WHATS MORE NO BLUE AND YELLOW TIGHTS
marvel72 - 11/15/2012, 8:47 AM
this sounds like it could be the best x-related movie since x-men 2.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/15/2012, 8:48 AM
ehh...I'm still waiting for a trailer or 2...and then reviews.
jimoakley666 - 11/15/2012, 8:49 AM
Brilliant.

@TheSoulEater - Completely agree, mate. The comic costumes are pathetic on page, never mind live action.
QuanZen - 11/15/2012, 8:52 AM
Everyone bow your heads...and let us pray.
Aeyan - 11/15/2012, 8:53 AM
I still hate Mangold. He'll find a way to screw this up.
FirstAvenger - 11/15/2012, 8:58 AM
Sounds like a good plot, but I'm not sure I'm gonna see this at the movies
DarthTesla - 11/15/2012, 9:01 AM
[frick] yeah. Canucklehead vs Ninjas.
InfiniteMonkey - 11/15/2012, 9:06 AM
I reserved judgement until I see it.
It could be the biggest flop meister ever.
Gulon180 - 11/15/2012, 9:12 AM
And to think we came so close to seeing Darrenofsky do it right. Ultimate Fanboy cock tease!
jessepostal - 11/15/2012, 9:12 AM
I don't even care if the movie sucks, I just wanna see the costume. I've lost all my love for Wolvie because of the lousy portrayl and center of attention they made him in every movie. Just give me the costume :)
RedeyeJedi - 11/15/2012, 9:15 AM
I really can't get excited about this until I see a trailer and get a feel for the movies vibe. Mangold can be pretty hit or miss. However, I'm still sad about Aronofsky dropping out so maybe I'm being unfair.
Stumblin - 11/15/2012, 9:19 AM
Still have low expectations for this.
Marqy - 11/15/2012, 9:19 AM
Sounds good but I really really really really hope this wont be another Origins or any other B-movie with some cgi effects ... Wolverine deserves a very good movie and his lore is rich enough to pull it off ... he was just not "it" in the movies so far ... maybe x2 .. Im crossing my fingers for this one
MisterNiceGuy - 11/15/2012, 9:23 AM
I think the suit is the only way they can salvage this franchise. Shitty movie or not it would be awesome to see the real wolverine. Not pretty boy in a wife beater.
jimpinto24 - 11/15/2012, 9:31 AM
The Wolverine is shaping up to be really good!
hescian - 11/15/2012, 9:34 AM
@ScarletJack - in the previous movie, he wasn't an indestructable killing machine.
He was a indestructable really nice guy, warm-hearted, softie, who gets beat up by everyone he crosses. When watching that movie, it's very hard to understand why ANYONE on stryker's team would have been intimidated by him. I'm not sure how they can maintain this portrayal of Logan as some kind of tortured soul, when based on these movies, he's never done anything bad...
Swiftsword777 - 11/15/2012, 9:43 AM
Cant say im sold on this yet...iv been let down way to much by all xmen films minus x2 ad first class
AztecRainGod - 11/15/2012, 9:58 AM
Wake me up for the reboot.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 11/15/2012, 9:58 AM
SUIT AND COWL OR WE HOWL!!!!!!!!
DoctorDoak - 11/15/2012, 9:59 AM
@cipher: You're not alone, man! I'm more excited for this than just about any other CBM currently in production... save for maybe FC2, and only by a little : )
dezdigi - 11/15/2012, 10:06 AM
When is the trailer rumored to debut?
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 11/15/2012, 10:13 AM
This is on my list with guardians of the galaxy, either gonna suck or be amazing, no in between.
AlexDeLarge87 - 11/15/2012, 10:21 AM
Josh Brolin as next Wolverine.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 11/15/2012, 10:21 AM
I love the comicbook version of Wolverine but this just sounds boring. Can we get a Wolverine reboot please!
Stumblin - 11/15/2012, 10:33 AM
I look forward to this franchise dying and getting another fresh start like First Class.
Stumblin - 11/15/2012, 10:41 AM
Not hating, just not enjoying :)
blogger234 - 11/15/2012, 10:50 AM
hand is hand in the movie.
GUNSMITH - 11/15/2012, 10:56 AM
I REALLY WANTED TO SEE THE MASK AND SUIT, YOUR DEALING WITH NINJAS AND A SAMURAI WEARING MASKS OR ARMOR FOR AN INTIMIDATION FACTOR, I REALLY WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE SEEN THE MASK..WE KNOW IT'S JACKMAN, THE MASK MAKING A DEBUT ESPECIALLY IN THIS MOVIE WOULD HAVE MADE COMIC NERDS EXPLODE IN A CRUSHUNDO OF GEEK ORGASMS.
Greengo - 11/15/2012, 11:11 AM
And yes... he does feel pain and can be killed.
Parker2017 - 11/15/2012, 11:19 AM
oh color me purple. this sounds liek it will be X4.
Darkhaven - 11/15/2012, 11:29 AM
For the love of all that is holy, let there be someone working on this film that is well versed in real physics and comic lore. If there is another Adamantium bullet scenario....Heaven help Fox.

As a matter of fact James Mangold (if you happen to be reading any of this!) do the fans a HUGE favor...state that everything that happened to Wolverine after he first went into the bonding process was a product of his broken mind due to the pain and the Weapon X training programming.
