    This was posted elsewhere but I thought its own thread may be better for discussion purposes and so it wouldn't get lost in another thread where people may not see it.

    They kept referring to Old Man Yashida as Shingen Yashida...I thought the younger fellow was Shingen Yashida...and Old Man Yashida was his father?

    Old Yashida is the SS

    Awesome! Congrats. :up:

    It was a good podcast. They seemed genuinely excited for the movie.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, it was obviously a paid promotional piece, but I thought their enthusiasm and the frequent Twitter questions kept it going well.

    I kinda get the feeling that IGN just haven't been following The Wolverine much. There was a previous article put out by them where they just referred to the father (Yashida) as Shingen and made no reference to the son who fights Wolverine in the trailers.

    My guess is that the old man is just an added character that serves as a hook for Logan to come to Japan. From what we've heard he's never been there before and hasn't met any of the characters previously (unlike the comic). I don't think he's a splitting of the character of Shingen, but just his father. He's referred to as the 'king of Japan' in interviews and I think that's how they are keeping ties to the original comic with Shingen being a disgraced crime lord with ties to royalty (of a sorts).
