Hugh Jackman as Wolverine with bone claws. It looks like it may be from World War II as a flashback. Note the green pants that look like GI issue from WWII.

Also from Empire Magazine  according to  comicbookmovie.com This movie occurs after the last X-men movies and is not a prequel.

Quote:
Within the pages of the latest Empire Magazine, director James Mangold has confirmed that his upcoming film -- The Wolverine -- takes place after all of the previous X-Men films, including The Last Stand. As we saw in the final film, Logan was forced to murder Jean Grey because she could not control the Phoenix's power, Professor Xavier and Scott Summers were believed to be deceased, and the team had disbanded. With rumors of some of the original cast returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past, it remains to be seen whether or not this film will tie-in to that storyline. Below are comments from James Mangold himself on the timeline placement.

"Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all. Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him."

"That’s something that for me was very important, that I land in a very specific place in his timeline.I wanted to be able to tell the story without the burden of handing it off to a film that already exists and having to conform to it. The ideas of immortality reign very heavily in this story and the burden of immortality weighs heavily on Logan. For me that’s such an interesting part of Logan’s character that is nearly impossible to explore if you have a kind of league or team movie."

Awesome.  Prequels can be terrible, more often than not, so the fact that this one is a full sequel works.  In fact, it can be the interim X-Men film until they have the X-Men team up again in the next.  I wonder, though: will it discount Origins, or learn to live with a bad movie being in continuity?  Will the special effects be better than Origins, as well?  The claws in Origins were laughably obvious CGI, after three X-Men films of real-loooking claws (since they were usually practical effects in the X-Men films).

The bone claws are also a give away, pre-1970s for sure. It'd be cool to see some WW2 action, hope you're right.
