James Mangold will be taking the helm instead. His previous work includes Walk the Line, Knight & Day, and Identity.
The Wolverine follows the titular character when he travels to Japan. Comic fans knows that Wolvie has quite a history with the island nation, including a lover and a certain Silver Samurai.
