Wolverine — or The Wolverine, as he seems to prefer now — has been missing from the silver screen since his less than auspicious spin-off in 2009. Since then, the mutant’s biggest fan, Hugh Jackman, has assembled an effort to return the legendary X-Men member to his rightful place as a respectable superhero. The result is “The Wolverine,” a darker and grittier look at the backstory of the self-healing mutant.
The first full trailer for “The Wolverine” paints a very different picture than anything we’ve seen in the previous “X-Men” films. Most noticeably, the main conflict takes place largely in Japan, a location that fans of the comics know as one steeped in Wolverine lore.
