“The” Wolverine

So much stuff happening in my favorite media. Don’t know where to start so I’m going to break it up throughout the week. This morning I opened my inbox to Promotional images for The Wolverine’s leading ladies. I had to share them here. I actually enjoyed the first wolverine movie despite some a lot of its inconsistencies but I am excited to see them do more with this one, and not give me another Emma Frost tragedy (thanks first class for fixing that one.).

Here’s Yukio played by Rila Fukushima. I don’t own these images as you can see from the watermark but you can go to EW.com for more info.


I love her updated punky look and I’m glad they picked a unique looking actress to play the unique character. Click below for more pics.

Next up is Viper. I think it’s an interesting choice to cast a white woman as Viper. I always assumed she was japanese with green dyed hair. Someone correct me if I’m wrong but It’ll be cool to see this movies take on her. Here’s Svetlana Khodchenka as the villainous Viper.


Lastly here is Mariko played by Tao Okamoto.


Can’t wait to see what they do with this movie. When I first heard rumors about the Wolverine sequel I heard that it would have a lot more female characters. I remember reading that while the first movie had a bunch of male X-characters in supporting roles, this one would have a buncha X-girls. I had hoped to see the rumored Cecilia Reyes or even Psylocke, but I’m happy so far with these choices.

Hoo Mah Moos today? The Wolverine and his leading ladies.
