Opening Scene Details for 'The Wolverine' Hint at Another Villain

Hugh Jackman

A new set photo allegedly shows a model of a Japanese prisoner of war camp during World War II, meaning that Logan will likely face off Lt. Ethan Warren in addition to Silver Samurai.

More tidbits from "The Wolverine" have been shared as a new set photo surfaces online. The image obtained by Comic Book Movie is believed to show a model of a Japanese prisoner of war camp during World War II, which will be featured [SPOILER ALERT!] in the opening scene that is reportedly going to include an atomic bomb explosion.

The image of the prisoner of war (POW) camp, which might be shown in a flashback in the movie, hints that the upcoming film will feature mutant villain Lt. Ethan Warren in addition to Silver Samurai. In Brian K Vaughan's limited series "Wolverine: Logan", Warren and Logan are held as POW in Japan during WW II, but manage to escape together.

Still based on the comic book, they later meet a woman in the woods and clash over what they should do to her. The two later part ways, but Warren reappears and attacks Logan. During their fight, they discover that they are alike (mutants). When Warren shows up in the present day, he has become a flaming skeleton man and eats Logan's heart to restore his human appearance.

While Warren's appearance is still unconfirmed, "The Wolverine" has cast Will Yun Lee as the villainous Silver Samurai. Brian Tee will play corrupt minister of justice Noburo Mori, and Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Logan a.k.a. The Wolverine.

James Mangold serves behind the lens for the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" sequel, which is slated for a July 26, 2013 release in the United States. The story will take its cue from the early 1980s Chris Claremont/Frank Miller miniseries, which features the mutant hero dealing with ninjas as he struggles whether to follow his animal killer instincts or live under a samurai's code of honor and respect.
