First Look: Silver Samurai

Not a great look but it looks right

A new picture from The Wolverine has surfaced. Below you’ll get your first look at the Silver Samurai. The Silver Samurai is being portrayed by Will Yun Lee and he will be Wolverine’s (Hugh Jackman) nemesis in the picture. It is not the greatest photograph of the character, but it does show that the costume looks right. 

In case you need a refresher or an education on who the Silver Samurai is, here is his bio from Marvel.com:
 
"Keniuchio Harada is the mutant son of the former Japanese crimelord Shingen Harada. As a youth, Harada mastered the attendant disciplines of the medieval samurai and sought employment as a warrior for hire. He first worked for the criminal Mandrill and clashed with the blind hero Daredevil. Harada then served the Viper, an agent of the terrorist organization Hydra, as her bodyguard. In that capacity, Harada battled opponents such as the costumed crimefighter Spider-Man, the martial arts master Shang-Chi, and the team of mutant trainee heroes the New Mutants.
 
Following his father’s death, Harada sought the leadership of Shingen’s Clan Yashida from his half-sister Mariko Yashida, but was opposed by the ronin Yukio and Mariko’s lover, the mutant adventurer Wolverine. Later, Harada worked with Wolverine to free American private investigator Jessica Drew from the influence of Black Blade of Muramasa, a sword mystically imbued with its creator’s madness. Wolverine himself fell under the sword’s spell, but managed to overcome his possession after which Harada took up the sword, finding himself worthy of its power (check the full story here)".
 
James Mangold’s sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine will arrive in theaters July 26rd, 2013.

 Looks accurate from the back.

Who is this supposed to be Murky from Rainbow Brite? 


Kidding. Hopefully, they make up for the pile of Wolverine crap that was the last movie.

Wasn't he the bad ass in Elektra? I hope this turns out better for him....

Hoping for the best, and preparing for the worst.

 Well, they have a great resource to pull from...so, they better not muck it up.  This would have been a nice set up for a reboot of the character/actor, but the average joe doesn't care.

Looks promising.  As for being in Elektra @silversurfer, I've managed to successfully block out all memory of that movie after the opening assasination scene.  According to the Silver Samurai wikipage, he wasn't in it.  There's no mention of him on IMDB either.

Wlydstaar...that was funny! Good for him...we've all tried to block that movie out of our existence, but The SyFy Channel reminds us of it every now and then that it truly exists....

WyldStar, I think he's talking about the actor who played in Elektra and it is the same actor.

Silver Samurai shouldn't be shorter than Wolverine, let alone a whole half a foot shorter, this just makes Logan look like a bully!
