First Look At Rila Fukushima As Yukio In THE WOLVERINE

Hit the jump to get your first look at the model turned actress dressed as Yukio, standing next to Logan (Hugh Jackman), in James Mangold's The Wolverine.



Another photo has surfaced from yesterday's filming of The Wolverine, that took place at the Zojoji Temple. This time it features our first look at Rila in her Yukio costume, and with an unexpected coloring of red in her hair.

Rila has the honor of playing, in my opinion, the best role in the film. Yukio is a blood-thirsty assassin that is ordered to kill Logan/Wolverine, but soon develops a crush on him when she witnesses his exceptional killing prowess. She is one of the two love interests in Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's "Japanese Saga," with Mariko being the other.

Mariko is frightened by Logan's brutality, while Yukio smiles with glee as Wolverine slices though his enemies. The two love interests represent paths that Logan must choose. With Yukio the path is easy, he is already the man/animal that she loves. The more savage he becomes, the more excited she becomes. However the path to Mariko's heart may be more difficult, but it will lead Logan on a journey of self-control and honor, which deep down is what he truly wants.


“Reminds me of me. Maybe that’s why I like her.” - Wolverine




The Wolverine will be directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day), from a script written by Christopher McQuarrie.. The cast includes: Hugh Jackamn (Logan/Wolverine), Svetlana Khodchenkova (Viper), Hiroyuki Sanada (Shingen), Hal Yamanouchi (Yashida), Tao Okamoto (Mariko), Rila Fukushima (Yukio), Brian Tee (Norubo Mori), and Will Yun Lee (Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai). The film will claw into theaters July 26, 2013.
