First Look At ‘Mariko Yashida’ On THE WOLVERINE Set In Japan; Hugh Jackman Returns

At a new shooting location in Japan, Hugh Jackman has been spotted once again, this time filming scenes alongside the Japanese model/actress behind Mariko Yashida, Silver Samurai's half-sister.



After filming scenes involving a funeral yesterday at a Buddhist temple in Japan, The Wolverine production has now moved to the Fukuyama Station in Hiroshima. In photos via various onlookers, the star Hugh Jackman is seen once again sporting the funeral garb from yesterday. However, this time he's alongside model/actress Tao Okamoto, who's playing Silver Samura's half-sister, Mariko Yashida. While nothing too significant, check it out!










Based on the celebrated comic book arc, “The Wolverine” finds Logan (Hugh Jackman), the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. Also starring Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee and Svetlana Khodchenkova, James Mangold directs a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback. And “The Wolverine” is scheduled for release on July 26, 2013.
