If there's one thing "The Wolverine" probably doesn't need, it's a sword. After all, the main character in the followup to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" already has razor sharp blades sticking out of his hands.

However, with Hugh Jackman's Logan/Wolverine headed to Japan in the new film, it was inevitable. The movie takes place after 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand," and it was already revealed that there will be an appearance by Famke Janssen's Jean Grey, from the original "X-Men" trilogy.

"The Wolverine" also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto and Rila Fukushima, and centers on the relationship between Logan and Mariko, the daughter of a Japanese crime lord. There has yet to be a trailer released, outside of a 15-second Vine video. It will be in theaters July 26.
