X-Men Origins: Wolverine was the story of how our favorite clawed misanthrope got his scowl back, while this year’s The Wolverine (which mostly ignores that earlier film, like, completely) is about a man ready to give that scowl — and those claws — up. In the new trailer, we get still more insight into how terrible Logan’s life has become. He’s having nightmares of killing Jean Grey and not caring for his wildman beard. And then an “old friend” discovers a cure for his immortality: “A man can run out of things to live for.”
Psych! Logan has to fight with/against a number of rogues: Yukio, Viper, and the Silver Samurai. I kind of wish Dream-Jean was sticking around — Hemlock Grove gave Famke Janssen a nice lick of malice.
Watch the new trailer below.
The Wolverine opens on July 26.
