    She is definitely Wolverine's protector while he is going through the stages of losing his powers

    I wonder if she'll be part of a love triangle between her, Wolverine and Mariko like in the comic.

    I was going to create a thread for her when I saw the CinemaCon trailer.

    She looks bad-ass and fierce!

    I'm interested to see how she's portrayed in the film. I hope they capture the recklessness of the character in the comics. There's a great moment in the Kitty Pryde and Wolverine mini where she leaps off a cliff, knowing the wind will blow her back and kick an opponent. It really shows how crazy she is. Hopefully they portray something of that.

    My worry is that she could end up a generic female ninja type.

    I love the look they gave her. Even prefer it to her look in the comics.

    I think Yukio will be one who will defeat Viper! I can't wait to see their fight!

    I really hope so.

    She looks bad ass, but I would've really liked the usual comic book look for Yukio. That character is so darn cool, they really didn't need to change anything.

    But I'll gladly wait and see how this works out. :)

    I wonder if she can slash some dudes down while on the bike.

    Like Cloud in Final Fantasy VII. :hehe:

    I just want to see some bike stunt.

    I actually prefer this one. He comic look is a pretty plain one, this one has more character.

    If I were ever to make a ninja film (or any film really), I would do an entire sequence on a Japanese motorway with ninjas on motorbikes.

    I like this chick's look. You can tell she's a model like right off the bat though.

    Rebecca Romijn was a working model too when she was hired to play Mystique.

    Who knows Rila Fukushima could be great as Yukio.

    Why would see she make it up?

    Yuki isn't pure as a snowflake in the comic storyline. She needs some untrustworthiness to her here somewhere. I'd rather that than some psychic power.

    And speaking of that premonition thing.

    I wonder why they didn't have Destiny in DOFP.

    I'm not sold on the premonition skill.. Then again, I'm being rediculously conservative about Yukio. At first, I hated her new look. Then I hated that the actress said that her Yukio would be 'different' from the comic books. And now I dislike this Yukio-the-mutant idea. Maybe I just can't handle change. :p

    I think Yukio will be a good sidekick to Wolverine!

    And I just realized that, it took them 6 movies to give Wolverine a sidekick!

    I wonder how she and Wolverine will part ways after the ultimate battle.

    She certainly looks the part, hope she turns out to be a great non-mutant character.
