The Wolverine‘s director James Mangold has posted three portraits of his cast to Twitter. There’s Hugh Jackman, but also two of the film’s “discoveries,” Rila Fukushima and Tao Okamoto.
Here they are, in that order.
Fukishima plays Yukio, the ronin, and Tao Okamoto plays Mariko Yashida, who becomes romantically entangled with Logan.
I can’t say much of anything about the film yet but I’m prepared to bet that Fukishima will be a real “fan favourite.”
We can expect to see the first trailer for The Wolverine within the next fortnight. The film is then set for release on July 24th in the UK and July 26th in the US. Down in Australia where much of the movie was filmed, they’re splitting the difference and going for July 25th.
