New posters for ‘The Wolverine’ features Viper, Yukio and Jean Grey

The Wolverine will be set in Japan mostly so fans will indeed meet several new characters. Collider unveiled the new character poster, which is the latest in a series of sumi-e style character renditions and the new Jean Grey inspired poster.

The poster also depicts Jean Grey in the costume Famke Janssen last wore on screen.

The other poster features Svetlana Khodchenkova and Rila Fukushima appear as the Viper and Yukio, respectively, adding a bit more menace to the film’s latest poster.

Addressing how the film fits in with  the other X-Men films, director James Mangold in SFX, Logan’s next standalone film will actually stand alone.

“[‘X-Men’ director] Bryan [Singer] and I have talked and he’s seen what we’ve done,” says Mangold. “Clearly the reality is that we are all trying to work together and make things groove together. But the trick is we were making our movie before Bryan came on and before I knew what they were up to in that film. Our agenda was always our agenda and our movie stands alone, so the journey we take Logan on in ‘The Wolverine,’ we bring to a close.”

The Wolverine comes to theaters on July 26, 2013.

Synopsis:

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.
