Well it’s officially on the horizon now folks, as Fox has recently announced a release date for Marvels The Wolverine. This sequel to Wolverine’s solo X-men adventures has been in a constant struggle since it’s conception, with previous director Darren Aronofsky abandoning the project. The film will be released on July 23 of 2013, only a little over a year away, and will find Wolverine in Japan where he’ll struggle with a forbidden romance, while struggling with a shape-shifting mutant the Silver Samurai. James Mangold, famous for directing such films as: Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Girl, Interrupted, has been announced as the films director. Hugh Jackman will of course be returning as Wolverine. With only a little over a year till their set date, we can only hope they start actually filming the damn thing soon.
