After the gods-awful mess that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine (which disappointed me all the more because I'm a huge Gambit fan), and the success of X-Men: First Class, director James Mangold has to deliver to a fanbase that's use to both elation and disappointment. Good luck with that, James.
Yesterday, Marvel released the international poster for The Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Shredder's hairy older brother.
Besides the whole 3D thing, it's a pretty cool poster (plus it's got some topless Jackman action for the ladies). Wolverine looks pretty pissed off, and I like the slightly dystopian feel to the setting (though the synopsis says it's set in modern day Japan).
Marvel have also released a 6-second teaser trailer ('tweaser') for The Wolverine, exclusive to Vine.

There's sword fighting, a samurai, various shots of Wolverine looking pissed off, a cameo by Famke Jenssen (Jean Grey / Phoenix) and lots more sword fighting. It looks like it's shaping up to be a pretty good action movie, if nothing else. The full trailer (or at least a longer teaser) will be released in 2 days' time.
What do you think of the X-Men movies? Do you think you'll go see The Wolverine?
