I'm sure there will be a few twists and surprises, but it sure seems like the new trailer for The Wolverine pretty much lays out the entire story arc of the upcoming film.

It starts off with Wolverine all sad and tormented because he still misses Jean Grey. So he goes to Japan to find himself or something, like you do, and while there he meets a tiny female samurai and a guy who sounds like that other guy from Inception and claims he can make Wolverine mortal—you know, so he can end his suffering and whatnot. However, in the end, Wolverine starts acting like a superhero again instead of the lead singer of a whiney emo band. (Though he still has that emo hair.)

And boom, that's the movie. The only reason you still need to go see it in the theater? The fight scenes, obviously. Especially the one with the giant robot samurai. That looks pretty epic.

The Wolverine hits theaters July 26, 2013.
