THE WOLVERINE: First Glimpse Of Silver Samurai & The Claws Come Out

THE WOLVERINE: First Glimpse Of Silver Samurai & The Claws Come Out

Check out a new picture from the set of The Wolverine that gives us our first look at the back of the Silver Samurai costume. Also Logan flashes his claws for the first time.

Korean American actor Will Yun Lee (Elektra & Hawaii Five-0) was finally spotted on the set of The Wolverine. He will be playing the main villain in the film, Kenuichio Harada, aka The Silver Samurai. A mutant that is dressed head-to-toe in silver armor. He has the ability to charge his swords with an electrical current, and they can slice through any substance... except for adamantium of course!

Besides our first look at the Silver Samurai, we also get to see Wolverine's claws for the first time as Hugh Jackman's stunt double is suspended from wires for this particular scene. I'm told the scene involves a group of ninjas attacking him, but once the claws come out they hightail it out of there.

The Wolverine will be directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day), from a script written by Christopher McQuarrie.. The cast includes: Hugh Jackamn (Logan/Wolverine), Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper), Hiroyuki Sanada (Shingen), Hal Yamanouchi (Yashida), Tao Okamoto (Mariko), Rila Fukushima (Yukio), Brian Tee (Norubo Mori), and Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai). The film will claw into theaters July 26, 2013.

siler samurai looks so far, and HELLS YESS they aint using those shitty cgi claws from origins.
soberchimera - 10/10/2012, 5:41 PM
Damn I didn't actually expect them to put him in costume. This might actually be good.
TheRationalOne - 10/10/2012, 5:47 PM
Love it. Just one Wolverine post ago, you damn kids were writing this movie off and assuming that thy were gonna screw up SS, then we get a glimpse and from what we can see, it's dead on. I'm gonna love it if this movie comes and is an epic win, and hear how many of you try to mumble with your foot in your mouths. How many of you will actually admit you we're wrong?

I want to get excited for this movie, but for some reason a Wolverine movie reminds me of this

HavocPrime - 10/10/2012, 5:54 PM
Cool, practical effects are always the best way to go, the Samurai looks ok from those shots, at least he is silver.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 10/10/2012, 5:55 PM
Wow, they really took Silver Samurai's costume literally.

Nice. If this movie sucks I'm never talking to Fox again.
Jollem - 10/10/2012, 5:59 PM
looks pretty damn good. keep up the good stuff, fox

i liked the comments i read a while ago that said; "oh, man. i can't wait to see how fox will screw up the silver samurai"

astromerc - 10/10/2012, 6:03 PM
Great now we have pictures! Now everyone is going to believe this is going to be awesome. Please! This is still Fox!
jimoakley666 - 10/10/2012, 6:03 PM
Oh. [frick] YEAH! Looking amazing so far.
IronLantern79 - 10/10/2012, 6:04 PM
Oh! Shiny"
Natetrix79 - 10/10/2012, 6:04 PM
The CGI claws from the last movie were horrid!!! It looks like they are taking this one seriously, I guess The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises both making over a BILLION DOLLARS has these movie studios stepping their game up............but only cause they wanna make as much cash as possible, not because they care about the characters! Bastards!!!
Jollem - 10/10/2012, 6:04 PM
@venom007 - i just read a review in usa today that said it was pretty good. also read a review from ed gross in geek magazine and he said good things also
marvel72 - 10/10/2012, 6:05 PM
looks good from behind but so did the magneto costume in x-men first class.
Jollem - 10/10/2012, 6:07 PM
@cipher - iron-y

Boogie138 - 10/10/2012, 6:09 PM
wanted a better look at SS, then again maybe i should stop looking at this stuff and just go in blind
jondoe297 - 10/10/2012, 6:10 PM
Ok thank you no CGI claws and seeing the silver samurai on set is really making me forget the last film
IIIAdamantiumIII - 10/10/2012, 6:11 PM

Jollem - 10/10/2012, 6:16 PM

TPerryoo7 - 10/10/2012, 6:16 PM
Those practical claws looks absolutely terrible, why do they stop at the knuckle??? haha they look like wolverine style butter knives between his fingers.

I guess they WILL CGI them over... or else they are gonna look really bad.
SymbioteSpidey1 - 10/10/2012, 6:17 PM
Like I said... Wolverine + Japan = WIN
Spidey91 - 10/10/2012, 6:19 PM
well,at least they're not going to pull another Barakapool :P
Silentman - 10/10/2012, 6:21 PM
IIIAdamantiumIII - 10/10/2012, 6:21 PM
I still get a real funny feeling from this it is going to be really terrible...
storyteller - 10/10/2012, 6:23 PM
They had cgi claws for the most practical of scene and that was stupid. Really they needed CGI for the bathroom scene? It wasn't the fact that it was cgi but the fact it looked like crap.

Also I wouldn't be too concerned with they are on the stunt mans hand and how they look in that image. They aren't going to have the camera on top of the guys hand on a super close up. It's not even Jackman. There is also a reason why Wolverine typically is depicted as wearing gloves. They also probably have different claws so they can hold it, swing with it, and have a close up.
CaptainAmerica31 - 10/10/2012, 6:24 PM
The action I arrow is pretty damn good, the show so far is good not bad
jimpinto24 - 10/10/2012, 6:32 PM

OdinsBeard - 10/10/2012, 6:40 PM

No CGI claws is a really really good thing. However these are coming out way to low!
StormLoganSummers - 10/10/2012, 7:03 PM
He's not silver enough.
Jollem - 10/10/2012, 7:10 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 - and if the front doesn't look like "shit", i'm sure it'll be on to looking for whatever next thing there is to nit-pick about :)
IronKam89 - 10/10/2012, 7:13 PM
Soooooooooooooooooooooo glad the claws aren't CG. At least I hope so
mgeoff88 - 10/10/2012, 7:21 PM
For only a picture of Silver Samurai's back, that looks like a well adapted costume imo.

I hope we get a look at the front of the costume soon.
Jollem - 10/10/2012, 7:30 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 - only a sith thinks in absolutes :)

also, it's a suit-coat and i actually really enjoyed liev as 'tooth. i thought he captured the menace pretty good
QuanZen - 10/10/2012, 7:44 PM
