There has been been rumors of when Wolverine's main villain, the Silver Samurai, would be brought on board and we now has that answer.
Actor Will Yun Lee (played the main villain in the James Bond movie, Die Another Die) has been brought on to portray the villain who 20th Century Fox is only referring to as Harada. This is the same last name as the man who is also known as the Silver Samurai in the comics. His full name is Kenuichio Harada.
Harada is a mutant who has the ability to infuse his sword(s) with tachyon energy which makes his blades have the ability to cut through virtually any substance. Obviously, Wolverine's adamantium skeleton and accelerated healing factor will put that to the test in the new movie. Harada is also the son of the criminal empire boss, Shingen, who was also added to the cast recently.
More news is surely to continue this week about The Wolverine (and many other superhero flicks) with the 2012 San Diego Comic Con kicking off on Wednesday and we'll be there getting you as much news, information and rumors as we can.
