Teasers for full-length trailers have become relatively common when it comes to comic book movies. First, Marvel Comics' "The Avengers" had a 17-second teaser for its Super Bowl ad in 2012. Later that year, "Iron Man 3" had its own 17-second trailer teaser. While it may not be one of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it will come as little surprise to fans that James Mangold's "The Wolverine" has a teaser for its upcoming full-length trailer, which debuts May 27. The teaser went out via Twitter, utilizing the six-second video service Vine. While the teaser may only be six seconds, there's quite a bit of content crammed in with first looks at lot of new footage.

The film seems to be on a promotional blitz to kick off the week, as eight new images and two new posters were released earlier today.

Directed by James Mangold, "The Wolverine" stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee. The film opens July 26.
