Movie Issues: The Wolverine

This summer has been full of superheroes fighting evil and standing up for good, but out of all of them, The Wolverine stands alone. Unlike Superman, The Lone Ranger, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, Wolverine has been played by one actor only, Hugh Jackman, who at this point has Wolverine down to a perfect science. Here in The Wolverine he’s once again proven he is the best at what he does. Directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line), The Wolverine finds out savage hero sometime after the events of X3. Logan travels to Japan, where he engages an old acquaintance in a struggle that will have lasting effects. Logan must then battle deadly samurai as well as his inner demons.

These are the questions that must be asked, and Comic Issues is the right podcast to ask them!
