THE WOLVERINE Fights Ninjas in (Slightly) Longer Teaser

Update, 3/26: Following Monday's six-second teaser for The Wolverine on Vine (below), things get extended — a bit — with this 20-second teaser, featuring Wolverine fighting ninjas, that debuted on MTV.

Original story: Given the increasing frequency of a high-profile movie trailer being teased by an even shorter clip, it's like peanut butter and jelly coming together for that type of marketing to come to Vine, Twitter's six-seconds-or-less video sharing app.

So before the full trailer for The Wolverine arrives on Wednesday, Fox took to Vine to give a short but noteworthy look at the film, including quick glimpses of the Silver Samurai and Famke Janssen returning as Jean Grey.

The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman in his sixth go-around as the title character, is scheduled for release on July 26. Here's the teaser, in all of its fleeting, looping glory:
