Things are starting to pick up for the “Wolverine” sequel and some minor plot spoilers and cast list has been revealed for the Darren Aronofskey’s “Wolverine 2.” The film will be based on the famous Chris Claremont and Frank Miller run from the early 1980’s which will take Logan to Japan. All this information come directly from Pajiba and the script written by “The Usual Suspects” scribe Christopher McQuarrie.
Be warned, spoilers ahead:
Shingen: His late father was the Master of the Hand, but rather than allow Shingen to take on the role, he killed himself and left the Hand masterless, hoping that they would choose Logan as their new Master.
Zen: He finds Logan in jail in Canada and makes him an offer he can’t refuse – to come to Japan and learn about his origin.
Kenuichio/Samurai: He’s the illegitimate son of Shingen, but Shingen refuses to acknowledge him as an heir. He’s also an expert Samurai, and he attacks Logan several times as a “Silver Samurai” with electrified armor.
Mariko: Shingen’s daughter. Shingen has arranged her marriage to the corrupt Noburo, but when Logan saves her life, they fall for one another.
Yukio: Logan’s bodyguard. They have an immediate physical attraction. She’s also still partially loyal to
Shingen and reports back to him, but she’s more loyal to Logan, who she considers her master.
Noburo Moro: Minister of Justice. He’s corrupt – in the back pocket of the Yakuza – and Shingen’s arranged for him to marry Mariko.
Viper: Noburo’s secretary. She’s in league with both Shingen and Kenuichio, her lover, but she’s ultimately more loyal to Shingen.
Frank Sinatra: Japan’s answer to Frank Sinatra. A Yakuza higher-up who provides Logan with information.
