The Wolverine Cast Takes Center Stage in Stunning Character Portraits

Last week, Fox released a slew of new posters from James Mangold's The Wolverine, including a group shot of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Rila Fukushima as Yukio and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, and traditional ink-wash renditions of Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada (aka Silver Samurai), Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen Yashida and Tao Okamoto as Mariko.

Well, this week, Fox did much of the same, but with full-on character portraits that debuted at IGN. Once again, Wolverine shares the spotlight with Yukio, Mariko, Viper and a bow-wielding Kenuichio Harada.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
