Directed by James Mangold, the film is loosely based on Creator/ChrisClaremont and Creator/FrankMiller[='s=] acclaimed 1982 ''Wolverine'' [[ComicBook/FrankMillersWolverine mini-series]], which saw the character traveling to Japan. It is the second attempt to give Wolverine his own movie following ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' to which this was originally going to be a sequel. Creator/HughJackman reprises his role as Wolverine from the ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'', and is joined by Tao Okamoto as Mariko Yashida, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada, Creator/HiroyukiSanada as Shingen Yashida, and Creator/RilaFukushima as Yukio.

* MythologyGag: The film provides some nods on the ''[[ComicBook/FrankMillersWolverine Wolverine]]'' limited series, where most of the characters are taken from.
** [[spoiler:Instead of Harada, the film's Silver Samurai is old man Yashida. Since the comics name Kenuichio is not a real Japanese name, the film derives Yashida's name Ichirō from the actual Japanese name, Ken''ichirō''.]]
** Mariko's arranged marriage, that she accepts as a thing of honor, which she does not expect Wolverine to understand because he's not Japanese.
** Ichirō pledges his katana to Logan as gratitude for saving his life. In the comics, Mariko is the one who pledged the Yashida katana to Logan after he kills Shingen.
** Like the film, the mini-series also took place shortly after Jean's death, and involved a love triangle with Mariko and Yukio.
** In the "Return of the King" arc of ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'', Logan ends up [[spoiler:running through a bear with his claws,]] although the film's version is much more peaceable and emotional.
** The Silver Samurai possesses the ability to heat up its blades, causing them to glow. This resembles the way the comic iteration of Silver Samurai coats his katana with a glowing tachyon field.
** In an example combined with {{Foreshadowing}} and SequelHook, [[spoiler:a commercial for Trask Industries, the makers of the mutant-hunting Sentinels, can be seen at the end of the film]].
** Moments when [[spoiler:Jean Grey]] is seen, it's in a white room. Perhaps representing [[spoiler:Phoenix in the White Hot Room?]]
** The [[MultipleEndings Alternate Ending]] has Yukio [[spoiler:giving Logan a more realistic version of his classic yellow and brown and yellow costume from the comics. Complete with a mask!]]
** Mariko holding two of Wolverine's claws at the end could be an ComicBook/{{X 23}} reference.
** Probably not intentional, but look at Logan's train-lunge. With the black trenchcoat, it's pretty reminiscent of Victor Creed's action scenes from ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine''.
** In the comics' ''Fatal Attractions'' arc, [[spoiler:Magneto stripped the adamantium from Wolverine's skeleton]]. In the movie, [[spoiler:the Silver Samurai extracted Logan's HealingFactor from the marrows of his broken claws (removing the adamantium along with it.)]] Wolverine later regrows his claws, now in bone form.
** As he's known to do in both the comics and first X-Men movie, Logan hangs out with a young mutant woman.

* DesperatelySeekingAPurposeInLife: Logan is essentially a wandering hobo when the film starts, mostly just living in the wilderness and avoiding contact with people as much as possible.

* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Shingen]] is responsible for the yakuza thugs and Logan fights him to end this plot thread and [[spoiler:become 'the wolverine'' again]] but there's a bigger villain in play.

* FantasticRacism: Shingen has an implied thing against mutants, in case you forgot this was an ''X-Men'' movie. While calling Logan "your kind" could've meant Westerners, Ichirō is obviously interested in mutants, not Westerners.

** Viper a.k.a. Madame Hydra is a high-ranking member of HYDRA (and eventually leader) who is a human with superb martial arts skills and knowledge with poisons. Much like Juggernaut before her, the film depicts her as a mutant scientist with snake-like attributes who mainly works for herself. Confusingly, Fox was still allowed to use her, even though she's much more tied to Nick Fury and SHIELD. Strangely enough, it's the Silver Samurai who is one of HYDRA's leaders during the events of ''X-Men: The Official Game''.
