The poster definitely features Japanese design elements, which lends more credence to its validity, although 20th Century Fox has not confirmed or denied that this is an official poster yet. Last month, the studio issued a June 26, 2013 release date for The Wolverine, which James Mangold will direct from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback. Production will begin later this year, after Hugh Jackman wraps on Les Miserables.
The Wolverine comes to theaters July 26th, 2013 and stars Hugh Jackman, Famke Janssen, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima. The film is directed by James Mangold.
