Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” follows 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which gave Hugh Jackman his personal blockbuster, as a standalone from the “X-Men” franchise.

“The Wolverine” centers around the events after “X-Men: The Last Stand,” which leaves Wolverine dealing with the fallout of Jean Grey’s death. (Famke Janssen makes a cameo during a sad and disturbing dream sequence.)
