"It's 100 percent undiluted Wolverine," director James Mangold (the very underrated "3:10 To Yuma") said in yesterday's Live Chat about 20th Century Fox's "The Wolverine." An interesting, surprisingly informative and thoughtful conversation between Mangold and his star Hugh Jackman, while the duo were in part-salesman mode -- letting the geek constituents hear what they wanted to hear -- the hopeful point of the discussion seemed to be selling fans on everything "The Wolverine" isn't.

Things in the movie world don't happen in a vacuum, and with James Mangold and Hugh Jackman taking part in an online Q&A today, followed by an unveiling of a new teaser poster for "The Wolverine," it's probably a safe bet some kind of teaser trailer will be dropping later this week. But you gotta start somewhere...

Jean Grey or not Jean Grey? That is the question. With rumors landing a few days ago that Famke Janssen shot a cameo in "The Wolverine," the presumption was that the film would precede the "X-Men" trilogy of pictures. But the answer to that presumption is an emphatic "no" from director James Mangold.

The big question around "The Wolverine" -- besides whether or not it will scrub "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" from our memory -- is it how it will or won't fit into the original "X-Men" trilogy or the new "X-Men: First Class" series. And now, we may have a clue.

You may not know her name -- or be able to say or spell it -- but next summer geeks everywhere will have Svetlana Khodchenkova down cold. The actress, probably best known for her part in last year's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," got her Hollywood break and nabbed the role of Viper in "The Wolverine" after Jessica Biel dropped out. And now, a little teaser of her in the movie has landed online.

After enduring some delays and the exit of original director Darren Aronofsky, lensing finally got underway at the end of the summer for "The Wolverine." And while there have been some pretty weak sauce set photos and videos thus far, 20th Century Fox have unveiled the first official image of Hugh Jackman as everyone's favorite mutant, and it looks appropriately raw.

Well, that didn't take long. In a week that saw Jessica Biel land and then abandon the role of Viper in "The Wolverine," it looks like a replacement has been found, although it's a name that's going to need a bit more room on the poster.

That was quick! Less than week after Jessica Biel had apparently signed on to play the villaness Viper in James Mangold's upcoming "The Wolverine" starring Hugh Jackman, the guys over at Collider are now reporting that "talks have broken down between Biel and 20th Century Fox" with the studio now moving on and "talking to other actresses."

Back when Darren Aronofsky was working on "The Wolverine" (which now feels like a million years ago), it was reported that he'd be essentially using an entirely Japanese cast for the film, obviously excluding Hugh Jackman as the title character, as the film reflected some of the character's most popular Japan-set tales. Nearly two years later, the film is finally gearing up for production, with James Mangold in the director's chair, and all the casting announcements so far -- Hiroyuki Sanada as gang boss Shingen, Tao Okamoto as his daughter Mariko, Rila Fukushima as assassin Yukio, Hal Yamanouchi as gangster Yashida, Will Yun Lee as villain Silver Samurai, and Brian Tee as a corrupt politician -- have reflected that.
