James Mangold Reveals 10 Movies That Inspired THE WOLVERINE

I'm incredibly excited to see what James Mangold and Hugh Jackman are going to give us with The Wolverine. This could be the best vision of Wolverine that we've seen so far. We've heard that this movie is going to be a much more character focused film. I love the tone in the posters and images. This movie looks like it's going to be intense. 

Over the weekend Mangold revealed ten films on his Twitter account that inspired him while making The Wolverine. All I can say is if the movie ends up as good as any of these films, it's going to be amazing!

The Wolverine comes out on July 26th, 2013, and the first trailer will hit later this month so stay tuned! Now look over the list of movies, and let us know what you think!
