The international and domestic trailers for director James Mangold’s sequel The Wolverine have landed this morning. Wolverine is isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”

This week a new synopsis has been released for The Wolverine, basically underlining what we’ve heard from Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold. The good thing to hear is that it’s going to be a much darker Wolverine movie, as the character should be.

The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.
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.
