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 [frick]ushima (Yukio), Brian Tee (Norubo Mori), and Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai). The film will claw into theaters July 26, 2013.
