Hugh Jackman Reveals The Villain Of ‘Wolverine 2′
 

 

The 2011 San Diego Comic-Con is finally in full swing and there are plenty of movies, TV shows and comic books all clamoring for your attention and dollar. Besides all the panels, round table interviews and promotional boothes inside the convention center, studios also hold promotions outside the facility in the surrounding parking lots – in this case Petco Park (home to the San Diego Padres).

Hugh Jackman made a surprise appearance this morning to do a promotion for his upcoming f!ghting robot movie Real Steel, and during the Q&A time with the audience he dropped some pretty interesting bits of information regarding Wolverine 2 – namely who the main villain is and when they will start shooting the film.

Naming the villain could be considered a spoiler to some folks, so if you don’t want to know who it will be, I suggest you stop reading NOW.

Said Jackman to the audience:
“I’m filming Les Miserables in February, but before that I will be filming Wolverine 2 in October. Chris McQuarrie has written a fantastic script and it should turn out really good. I’ll f!ght the

in it so that should be exciting. Most of the filming will take place in Japan.”


Last month (June) James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) was announced as the man who will helm the second film – tentatively titled The Wolverine – after Darren Aronofsky stepped down. Though nothing had been confirmed we speculated a while back that one of the villains could potentially be the Silver Samurai and now thanks to Jackman we know this is the villain writer Chris McQuarrie (Jack the Giant k!ller) has chosen.

The Silver Samurai (character’s “real” name is Kenuichio Harada)has a long history in the Marvel Universe and should make an admirable foe for Wolverine. Harada is actually the half-brother of Wolverine’s lover Mariko Yashida and he has major issues with her relationship with Wolvie. In the comics, Wolverine is trained in the ways of the samurai by Kenuichio and Mariko’s father Shingen and eventually joins Shingen’s Clan Yashida.

There is no word yet on who might play the Silver Samurai but as Comic-Con goes on over the next 3 days there is a good chance more information regarding The Wolverine will trickle out, and that question could be answered as well.

Who would you like to see play the Silver Samuari in The Wolverine? (Ken Watanabe is my first choice).

it was a shame because the first like 15-20 minutes of wolverine was fantastic, they had deadpool locked down it was great then the rest of the movie happened

but its a completely different director/writers so unless brett ratner or the previous director gets involved it can't be any worse then origins.

How the fu*k would that make sense? it takes place in japan, the way the story is set up it would make absolutely 0 sense to have a fu*king mutant from russia to be the villain.

The movie would be worse than origins if they put omega red in it
