Meet the women of The Wolverine in 3 black & white cast portraits

The Wolverine’s director, James Mangold, has tweeted three cool new black-and-white cast portraits for the upcoming summer movie, so we now get to have a look at the ladies of the superhero film.

First, we have Hugh Jackman still looking pretty good as everyone’s favorite Canadian superhero Logan, aka the Wolverine. Then we have the ladies: Rila Fukishima, who plays Yukio, the ronin, and the lovely (but sadly partially hidden) Tao Okamoto, who plays Mariko Yashida, who was one of Logan’s great loves.

Apparently, Fukishima will become a “fan favourite,” so we’re really looking forward to seeing that.

Bleeding Cool says they expect we’ll get to see the first trailer for The Wolverine within the next two weeks.

As a bit of a refresher, here's the movie's synopsis:

In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as 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.

The Wolverine will claw its way into theaters on July 26.
