Plot and Casting for 'The Wolverine' Confirmed

We've heard rumblings about the plot but now it's 'official.'

What's going on with The Wolverine these days? Looks like Fox is ready to reveal some information about the movie. There was a time when a casting sheet was leaked and they immediately had that pulled from several sites (including ours).

To prepare for the movie, Fox has started a Facebook page and there is some new information there.

A plot outline has been posted stating the following:

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.

Do yourself a favor and check out Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's 1982 WOLVERINE miniseries for an idea what this could be about.

There was also some question as to who would be playing Viper. Originally Jessica Biel was linked to the role but now it appears that Svetlana Khodchenkova has the role.

Will she have green hair?
