'The Wolverine' official plot synopsis released

The Wolverine has received an official plot synopsis from 20th Century Fox.

The studio promises to show fans a "vulnerable" side of the character and push him to his "physical and emotional limits" in the James Mangold-helmed sequel.

"Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan," the synopsis reads.

"Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.

"Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before."

The Wolverine, which sees Hugh Jackman reprise his role as the iconic anti-hero, will take place after the events of Bryan Singer's X-Men trilogy and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Fox creative consultant and acclaimed comics writer Mark Millar previously hinted that Wolverine will do for the studio what Iron Man did for Marvel Studios, paving the way for shared universe projects.

The Wolverine will be released on July 25, 2013 in the UK, and July 26, 2013 in the US.
