Mori

Noburo Mori is a supporting antagonist in the 2013 film The Wolverine. He is the Minister of Justice in Japan who, unbeknownst to anyone is corrupt. Mori is also the former fiancé of Mariko Yashida and partner of her father Shingen.

He was portrayed by Brian Tee, who also portrayed Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat: Legacy, DK Takashi in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and The Shredder in the 2016 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

Role

His marriage to Mariko was arranged by her father Shingen so that he could have better access to politics in Japan. However, once Mariko revived her supposedly late grandfather's company in the will, Noburo and Shingin feared she would call off the engagement. To make sure that Shingen receives his father's company and that Mariko does marry Mori, they both hire Yakuza gangsters to kidnap Mariko at IchIrō's funeral, but Logan was able to save her. After the Yakuza thugs managed to capture Mariko, Mori celebrated in his apartment with prostitutes. However, Logan and Yukio arrived and Logan forces Mori to tell him where Mariko is. After Mori tells Logan about Shingen covered out his father's, Ichirō, buying adamantium that nearly bankrupted Yashida Industries, and that her father has Mariko and is planning to kill her, Logan throws off his apartment's balcony, but Mori survives by landing into a swimming pool. It is unknown what happens to him after that.

Trivia
