I found a list of characters that will appear in the next Wolverine movie. For you true comic geeks, you will recognize most of them from the very 1st Wolverine Mini-Series done in 1983.
So here is the list
Zen: A Japanese man “who arranges for Logan’s release” from a Candian prison and “offers to answer questions about his origin if he’ll accompany him to Tokyo”.
Shingen: Shingen’s father was the master of The Hand, an order of ninja. Instead of allowing his son to take leadership of the order, Shingen’s father killed himself and left the Hand without a master. This pretty much defines Shingen now. That’s how it works in these kinds of stories.
Kenuichio: Shingen’s illegitimate son, but not recognised as an heir. An expert Samurai, he will adopt his “Silver Samurai” guise in the movie and attack Logan “several times”.
Mariko: Shingen’s daughter, and Logan’s chief love interest.
Yukio: Logan’s bodyguard and lust interest.
Frank Sinatra: “Japan’s answer to Frank Sinatra. A Yakuza higher-up who provides Logan with information”.Okay, this movie could be cute... We will see
