With James Mangold’s The Wolverine hitting theaters on July 26, fans are eager for their first look at the Marvel Comics adaptation. Although speculation had previously pointed to a teaser debuting with this week’s A Good Day to Die Hard, it looks like the wait will be just a little bit longer.
ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype has learned that, while plans could still change, the teaser is now targeting a debut with the March 29 release G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Mangold himself confirmed via Twitter the late March debut.
“Tell me you think we’re lame after you see the teaser,” he wrote last night. “At least then you will be critiquing images from the film, not a marketing window… From end of March till release, you’ll be saturated. Relax, yuk. I’ve never found the coolest people are the first to arrive at a party.”
Starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
