the wolverine movie poster2013 looks like it’s going to be the year of the superhero – movies like Iron Man, Man of Steel, and Thor are coming out.  Yes, it’s true, werewolves have done better at the box office in prior years, but have no fear! There are still some good movies set  to come out this year which will have werewolves playing some kind of role!

Here are some movies featuring werewolves we have to look forward to in the upcoming year:

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – What if the legends whispered around campfires are true? The movie follows Clary Fray who discovers a the world is full of demons, Shadowhunters, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves.  Set to release August 23, 2013

The Wolverine – The wolverine is not exactly a werewolf, but close enough…(perhaps we’ll call him a close cousin)  ;-)  In this Marvel Comics movie, Hugh Jackman is back as The Wolverine Logan.  Part of the X-Men installment of films, the movie centers around a trip Logan makes to Japan. Set to release July 26, 2013

I, Frankenstein – This upcoming horror movie is about none other than Frankenstein’s monster!  The movie’s screenplay came from Underworld film director Kevin Grevioux….does this mean we’ll see a lycan or two?  Hard to say.  Originally, some concept art of a werewolf which might be in the film was being floated around the blogosphere, and fans were hopeful there would be one with the link to Underworld….but now?  Noone is quite sure.  I guess we’ll know ore on September 13, 2013 when the film is released.

Wer – This movie still has many “ifs” about it since there is only a sketchy outline of the film and right now only a tentative release date.  For a while last year, they wouldn’t even confirm that it was about werewolves!  As it looks right ow, the movie is scheduled for sometime in 2013, and is supposedly about an attorney who gets a feeling her client might be something other than human…specifically a werewolf.
