New Poster & Images From 'The Wolverine' Introduce The Supporting Cast

Compared to some of its summer blockbuster superhero competition -- "Iron Man 3" and "Man Of Steel" -- "The Wolverine" has been playing its cards close to its chest. We've seen a smattering of images, and lots of encouraging talk from director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, but not a frame of footage so far, and in general the film's a little more under the radar than its rivals, though we suppose that's fair enough, given that it won't hit theaters 'til much later.

Compared to some of its summer blockbuster superhero competition -- "Iron Man 3" and "Man Of Steel" -- "The Wolverine" has been playing its cards close to its chest. We've seen a smattering of images, and lots of encouraging talk from director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, but not a frame of footage so far, and in general the film's a little more under the radar than its rivals, though we suppose that's fair enough, given that it won't hit theaters 'til much later.

But now the movie's promo efforts are taking a turn. 20th Century Fox are certainly hoping that this will be the week of "The Wolverine" -- a trailer arrives later in the week, and this morning sees the debut of two new posters and a brace of images from the film.

The posters -- one from the official Twitter feed, one from Coming Soon -- are definitely a step down from the excellent teaser one-sheet, in part because they evoke the Logan-drops-to-his-knees-and-screams-at-the-sky shot that only appeared in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" roughly one million times. The images, meanwhile, are from EW, and include first looks at Mariko (Tao Okamoto), the woman that Logan is meant to protect from the Yakuza, poisonous villain Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) and the mysterious and ass-kicking Yukio (Rila Fukushima).

Take a look at some of the images below, and see the rest over at EW. The trailer for the film should be with us in the next few days, and the movie opens on July 26th, 2013.
