Hugh Jackman sure does love to play Wolverine and I am so glad that he is pleased with the role since he does a damned good job of it. Now while we last saw him as the character in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, that tale was about his interesting past while this new one picks up some time after “X-Men Last Stand”. Logan has always been a conflicted character and his life of violence begets even more violence and as result many of the ones he loves around him die. The story for this one finds him in Japan with a new love interest, new enemies and according to what I have seen in the trailer for the film – no powers or abilities at one point in the tale. He will also go head to head with the Silver Samurai who many of the traditional comic book geeks will remember as a problem to the likes of Daredevil, Spider-Man and Nick Fury before he ever went up against the X-Men. Will you be seeing this film?
