Over the last couple of weeks we’ve had casting news and the first set images from Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine. Now, we are finally getting our first synopsis of the film and it looks like it is exactly the movie we were hoping for.

Official synopsis:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, THE WOLVERINE finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.

In addition to the synopsis, Director James Mangold has taken to Twitter for the first time in his life and is using it to wax poetic and update fans on the film.

Some of his best tweets so far include:

@mang0ld: movies I think about as I make #TheWolverine : Eastwood’s Josie Wales, Powell’s Back Narcissus, Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Marnie, Vertigo

@mang0ld: Today I am starting an intense set piece of action and drama at the Yashida Compound set. Logan, Yukio and Shingen.

@mang0ld: Just finished pages. Made some tweaks. Scribbled out fresh shot list. About to head to set for day 14 of THE WOLVERINE.
