Liev Schreiber Reveals There’s Been Talks Regarding Him Returning For ‘The Wolverine’ Sequel

4bb5c59ce06f6While X-Men Origins: Wolverine was far from a great film, it had a few great elements to it. One of these elements was deifnitely Liev Schreiber’s Victor Creed aka ‘Sabretooth’ and his chemistry with Hugh Jackman. Not long ago Schreiber responsed to a Tweet of Jackman’s which featured him getting prepared for the role of Logan which made fans beging to wonder if there was a chance that we could see him reprise the role in James Mangold’s upcoming sequel to The Wolverine.

Well, while speaking with MTV, Schrieber revealed that there has indeed been conversations and might have additionally confirmed that the film will be focused on the rumored Old Man Logan storyline.

We talked about it. I don’t know. He’s mentioned it to me. The Old Man Logan story — that’s appealing. That’s something that I can do. Old, being the operative word.

While this isn’t any confirmation that we will see indeed see the character return, here’s hoping that this ends up being more than just talks. Would you like to see more Schrieber reprise his role in the 2017 film? Should we wipe all aspects of X-Men Origins off the face of the earth? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

    They can claim Old Man Logan as much as they want, it’s going to have as much in common with that comic as Avengers: Age of Ultron did with its own namesake.

    If they cast Schrieber, they retcon Origins BACK into the film continuity, after JUST retconning it OUT with DoFP and Deadpool! I know not everyone cares about continuity, but c’mon!

    • Fry Cook on Venus

      That’s like saying DoFP retconned X3 out of continuity, but then retconned it right back in by showing Kelsey Grammer Beast in the end. The movies were retconned, but the actors weren’t. I’ll allow Schrieber to return.

        Yea, I get what you’re saying-but it’s not the same thing. Considering the continuity issues Origins had unto itself (Cyclops, Emma Frost and Prof X cameos and MANY more) which directly contradict the first three X-Men films, First Class through Deadpool have ALSO contradicted it’s existence. So, my point is- X3 DID happen, but the events in DoFP changed the timeline so that X3 “won’t” happen. Where as, Origins NEVER happened, because the films that exist before AND after it either ignore it, contradict it, or mock it.

          Why can’t you just accept they make up stuff as they go? There’s no point discussing continuities, they’ll just make the decision they think it’s better for each film and then they’ll just come up with some excuses to ‘solve’ the continuity problems.

          • w0undedmagic

            Well, some people like consistency in their storytelling-what can I say? Through the history of film, there have been sequels and spin-offs that have honored their preceding film’s story whether or not the filmmakers planned them to begin with. Presently, guys like Kevin Feige and Geoff Johns’ jobs are majorly dedicated to keeping their “universes” consistent-EVEN IF they haven’t meticulously planned every sequel going forward. Also some people (that aren’t you), like to discuss ALL different aspects of filmmaking, which includes-yes, continuity.

          • Dasoman

            No, you didn’t get what I was trying to say. I like continuity as much as you, but please, the continuity of the X-Men cinematic universe has been messed up for a while now. No matter how they try to fix it, it doesn’t make any sense and it never will. They are just relying on fans ‘filling in the gaps’ they’re too lazy to fill by themselves.

    • Schreiber’s Sabretooth wouldn’t have been retconned out of continuity, considering James and Dog lived far before the 1970’s.

      • w0undedmagic

        That’s irrelevant. Too many other things in the films before and after it directly contradict it’s existence in the X-film canon.

        • No, it’s not irrelevant. You’re talking about ONE FILM.

          I’m talking about THE TIMELINE.

          The Timeline was reset by DOFP, yes. But only for 1973 to the present.

          Let me use all caps so it’s clear to you, because you’re having a hard time understanding:

          EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED BEFORE 1973 IS STILL CANON.

          So all those wars James & Victor fought-in, their entire relationship, James killing their father… ALL THAT STUFF… still happened.

          Duh.

          • w0undedmagic

            Yea, you’re wrong-I am also talking about the timeline-I think I’ve been pretty clear in my previous posts. Not really worth continuing to argue with an angry child about it though.

          • Again… nothing in DOFP erased anything from the pre-1973 timeline.

            But yeah.. not going to argue with an insolent child.

          • JA_Media

            Wounded, your stupidity really hurts my head.

          • w0undedmagic

            Cool, useful comment! A bullet might relieve that tension for you.

          • You’re aggressively wrong. Best to take the corrections and move on.

  • WarrenWII

    Sabretooth, X-23, Omega Red…. would be cool seeing all these iconic villains/characters appearing on Wolverine’s last entry.

    Cyclops as Hawkeye substitute would be awesome, but its Fox, so they wont use Cyclops neither Marsden, too “fanservice” to them I guess. Thankfully Marvel Studios and Warner dont think the same with Cap-Ironman and Batman-Superman.
