Logan with claws outIt’s been three years since the debut of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, but its sequel is currently in production. The Wolverine will see the return of Hugh Jackman in the title role of Logan, aka Wolverine, everyone’s favorite fast-healing, adamantium-clawed mutant. The official synopsis for the sequel has just been released from Marvel Studios:

“Based on the celebrated comic book arc, 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.”

It might be brief, but it should definitely get fans talking. Who can’t wait to see Wolverine duking it out with samurai?

Directed by James Mangold and written by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, The Wolverine is due to be released July 26, 2013.
