With summer just around the corner, a cadre of posters have been revealed for a few upcoming blockbusters. Expect to see variations of these marketing materials slapped on every conceivable surface between now and their release.

A new Japanese poster has been unveiled for “The Wolverine,” the continuation in the adventures of “X-Men” character Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). “The Wolverine” has been furiously hitting its promotional stride with the debut of the official trailer and other images; this new poster doesn’t appear to be any different from the last poster that was released. Both have similar color schemes and showcase a toned Jackman. Here, we’re meant to see some duality within the character and understand that he won’t simply be fighting with his adamantium claws, but also wielding a samurai sword.

“The Wolverine” follows Logan/Wolverine as he travels to modern-day Japan. He confronts adversaries both new and old, whilst finding out things about himself. Directed by James Mangold (“3:10 to Yuma“) and starring Famke Janssen, Tao Okamoto, and Svetlana Khodchenkova, “The Wolverine” hits theaters July 26th.  []
