That’s the question we few fanboys will ponder as we anxiously await the release of THE WOLVERINE. A film which will pit our favorite mutie against Japan’s greatest warrior, The Silver Samurai (played by Will Yun Lee).
If you’re not familiar with SS, then let me break a yolky geek egg of knowledge on ya. Silver Samurai’s non-villain name is Kenuichio Harada. He’s a Japanese ganglord and all around badass, possessing the mutant power to charge any item with energy. Apparently Gambit’s daddy was a veteran of the Pacific Theatre. Who knew?
Anyway, when Wolverine travels to Japan, the two inevitably clash in an epic slicing and dicing battle, which is followed by some pretty devastating consequences. We’ve managed to get our hands on the first leaked peak of the Samurai in full armor from the set, so make sure you give it a looksy below:
Now, the past few years haven’t been too kind to the mutton chopped hero. You know… because of X-Men 3 and that awful Origins flick. Even though Hugh Jackman delivered some great performances, as he’s known to do, those films have soured a majority of Wolvie enthusiasts.
