EW.com has posted eight new photos from James Mangold’s “The Wolverine” giving a first look at many characters including Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper.
”As her name would imply, she’s kind of snakelike,” Mangold told EW. “She likes to play with toxins. She’s immune to toxins. She’s kind of formidable.”
Marvel and Fox have released two new movie posters for “The Wolverine,” each featuring a shirtless Hugh Jackman.

IRON MAN 3
Marvel.com spoke with Guy Pierce about his portrayal of Aldrich Killian in “Iron Man 3.”
“Killian is an interesting character as he’s somebody who came into this world with a number of physical disabilities,” Pierce told Marvel. “He’s never been able to accept those limitations though and has spent most of his life trying to overcome them in any way he can. His tenacity and blind determination in fighting for a better life are seen by some as irritating, as he often comes across as obnoxious. He just won’t accept the cards he was dealt, and being as intelligent as he is, has real drive to change and become a different person.”
Meanwhile, Comic Book Movie has posted a new trailer for “Iron Man 3,” which shows Pepper inside an Iron Man suit.

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION
GeneralsJoes spoke with “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” director Jon M. Chu in anticipation of the film’s debut later this week, where the director commented briefly on the future of the franchise.
“If I ever did G.I. Joe again, I’d want to tell the story between Scarlett and Snake Eyes, I want to tell the story of Serpentor, and all these crazy things, and regular things. As a sequel, you are tied to certain elements that have been set up, and relationships that have been set up. It was really important for me on this one to ‘clear the deck’ a little bit, get a couple cards in order. Not, you know, can you put Flint in his beret right at the top? No. Can you get there? Yeah, and that’s kind of fun. Once you get there, there’s no going back, so I had to always remind myself…we’re getting to a lot of this stuff, we’re going to get there.”
