First “The Wolverine” Trailer Arrives

After quite the build-up of hype, Fox has unleashed the first trailers for James Mangold’s “The Wolverine”. Immediately it looks more promising than the previous Wolvie film (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), but lacks the sheer scale and promise of “X-Men First Class”.

Some story elements are finally glimpsed here – basically the kind of character elements that fans of “Doctor Who” or Torchwood’s Captain Jack will be quite familiar with. Some flashy looking set pieces are visible as well.

Below is the just released international trailer, the slightly tighter and less melancholy U.S. domestic version is online at
