Synopsis: In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own near-immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.


THE WOLVERINE is a very unique take on the superhero movie. In that respect, itís a very stylized picture. Most of it takes place in Japan, and thereís a little bit of a mystery to it, almost a noir-ish mystery to it; the character Wolverine is a bit of a loner. Having said that, there is a sound and melodic structure and harmonic structure that is used for him, but itís not like a Superman type of theme; itís much more reserved. I used early on when you see him, in the woods, (a) harmonica. The harmonica has a fairly strong thread throughout the score, as Wolverineís sound. Sometimes itís processed and treated, other times itís fairly straight, but it seems to work well for him, and it goes well with the harmonic structure thatís used for him.
