Yeah, Shingen being the villain is hardly a surprise considering the story they're adapting.

We know how the comic storyline played out but the marketing isn't getting Shingen across much at all compared to other characters, particularly for the general audience. Would the GA know without the comics how important he is to that story? Nope. They've got less than 2.5 months to give a better introduction to Shingen...and Mariko as well.

From the marketing it was looking like they were going to focus more on the silver samurai. I also hope that the Shingen/Wolverine fight is the climax of the film and not the mech Samurai. I'll take a fight loaded with emotion over spectacle any day.

Yeah especially since we're getting Sentinels in the next movie. I think the mechanized SS is def a Sentinel precursor of some kind. Having it in the middle would raise questions but there needs to be more of a real gritty human type fight for the end.

They aren't showing Shingen in the trailers that much simply because compare to Silver Samurai, Viper and Yukio, he's not visually interesting.

Right now he's just coming across from the marketing as one of many henchmen who fight Wolverine, rather than this unique, big deal Yakuza clan leader that he is. lol I mean you can get a basic gist of how the other characters factor into the story without in-depth comic knowledge, but poor Shingen, not so much.

Ha that image is like literally the reverse of what you usually see in the comics. Wolverine looks like he's totally dwarfing that guy with his size.

probably not, but it is a mistake often made even in the comics, it's like hitting him in the face and not hurting your hand, you know because you just punched a steel jaw, covered thinly with skin. just watch and disbelieve, it is the only way lol

Motorcycles in the film:

Quote:
As summer films become more explosive and action-oriented, so too are the cars and bikes that are featured. But as much as vehicles add a level of excitement and engagement to filmgoers’ experience, viewers are increasingly sophisticated.

It’s no longer acceptable just to place the most current or desirable product. The cars have to be true to character.

“For me, the biggest focus with putting vehicles in the movie is to make them work for the movie and not seem like product placement,’’ said James Mangold, director of the upcoming Marvel film, The Wolverine, starring Jackman and, briefly, a Ducati Diavel and Audi R8 Spyder.

Most of the riding and driving is done by a female character named Yukio who nicks vehicles from her wealthy boss and uses them to perform “hard stops, hard pull-ins, and pulling in to tiny spaces at high speed,’’ said Mangold.

“But we’re the movie about a guy with claws, so the real action in our film is more hand-to-hand and physical.’’

Despite the limited screen time, the Ducati Diavel and The Wolverine are a “perfect fit,’’ said Stefano Sbettega, marketing and communications director for Ducati North America in Cupertino, Calif.

“It’s a fantastic combination of what the motorcycle represents and the Wolverine, who is somehow devilish and has a huge following all over the world.’’

The devil, or Diavel, has been on the market two years but is getting the film treatment for the first time through The Wolverine, in which it will be ridden by Hugh Jackman (a motorcyclist in real life) as well as the Yukio character, Sbettega said.

Interesting, I didn't realize Wolvie rode a bike in this but you can clearly see him slashing one in the village sequence where he fights the Ninja's.
