"The Wolverine" movie quotes continue the Marvel superhero story of the "X-Men" character in a new action film. Based on the comic book of the same name by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, "The Wolverine" used a screenplay written by Christopher McQuarrie, Mark Bomback and Scott Frank. James Mangold directed the film which opened on July 26, 2013, in the United States.

In "The Wolverine," the story picks up after the events that occurred in the most recent X-Men movie, "X-Men: The Last Stand." Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) struggles with his immortality, especially as he witnesses the death of his loved ones, former flame Jean Gray (Famke Janssen). He's contacted by Yukio (Rila Fukushima) who seeks him out on behalf of her employer, Shingen Yashida (Hiroyuki Sanada). Crime boss Yashida wants to talk to Logan to return the favor as long ago Logan, as Wolverine, saved his life.

Yashida claims that he can remove Wolverine's immortality and make him human again, something Logan agrees to. While Logan deals with his internal struggles, he's also forced to learn how to battle again without the special powers he once relied on for safety. This creates quite the difficult situation for which Logan can crumble under or embrace to conquer all and find peace within himself.

"The Wolverine" is yet another summer 2013 blockbuster hitting theaters during this peak time alongside movies like "Only God Forgives," "Girl Most Likely," "Red 2," "R.I.P.D.," "Pacific Rim," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger," "Despicable Me 2," "The Heat," "White House Down," "World War Z," "Man of Steel," "This Is the End," "After Earth," "Fast and Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III," "The Great Gatsby," "Oblivion," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Olympus Has Fallen."
