The Wolverine Set For July 2013

Fox has announced a July 26th 2013 release date for the Hugh Jackman-led “The Wolverine” says Heat Vision.

The long delayed James Mangold-directed flick takes the Canadian mutant with healing powers and an unbreakable retractable claws to Japan.

With the new date set, the studio is reportedly making this production a priority. The film is hoping to capitalise on a mid-July bow which has proven profitable in recent years for superhero films such as “The Dark Knight” and “Captain America: The First Avenger”.

It’s only competition for that weekend next year at the moment is the “Dirty Dancing” remake.
