Potential Villains of Wolverine 2

The folks at Cinema Blend spoke with Liev Schreiber the other day during a press junket for his upcoming film, Taking Woodstock, and touched base with him on what his future may be in the X-Men franchise.

Unfortunately for fans of Schreiber’s portrayal of Victor Creed, the talented actor didn’t sound too enthused about the idea of returning to the role of Wolverine’s brother and arch nemesis. Join us as we discuss what the storyline of Wolverine 2 may entail in terms of characters and what other stories and villains could be introduced.

We’ll be touching on Silver Samurai, Team X, Omega Red and more!

In speaking with Cinema Blend, Schreiber pointed out that he may not be ready to play the part again.

“I’m over 40 now, and do I really want to go through the physical stuff that it took to pull that off again? I’m not so sure.”

Bah! If Hugh Jackman can do it, you can too, Liev.

I do understand what he’s saying though: by the time Wolverine 2 starts shooting, he’ll be in his forties. At the same time, if the filmmakers want Schreiber back, this is probably their last chance.

Storywise, I don’t know how they’d turn Wolverine and Creed against one other again, what with Wolvy’s memory loss at the end of the Origins film – especially since we already know the two characters don’t know each other in the first X-Men movie.

With Liev’s disinterest and the way the character has been treated in the series, I could see sadly writing Victor Creed and Sabertooth off as separate characters.

Cinema Blend’s Katey Rich made a good point on this, saying that Schreiber may not have much of a choice, assuming he’s signed to a multi-picture contract (which is pretty standard for these genre movies at Fox Studios).

That being said, if he doesn’t want to come back, his friend Hugh Jackman definitely wouldn’t force his return as a contractual obligation.

Continuing his thoughts on the Wolverine sequel, Schreiber continued,

“As an audience member, I’d be really interested to see how you’d go from the Liev Schreiber Victor Creed to the Tyler Mane Victor Creed [from X-Men]. So I’d like to see that.”

I think we’d all like to see that. It’d be a big let down (we’ve had far too many already) if the filmmakers just ended up leaving Victor Creed and never addressing how he goes from this:

The talkative and egotistical Victor Creed (with normal eyes)

…To this:

The dumb, slow and quiet animal, Sabretooth (with abnormal eyes)

  1. You might as well go with rebooting the original x-men movies bc they ruined so many characters in them. They didn’t really stick to the comic storylines and leave to many gaps to fix.

    They’re rebooting fantastic four, ghost rider… who knows what else…

    I hope disney/marvel can eventually get all the rights to these movies and make things right.

    Here’s what i really wish… They would reboot the x-men movie only with the ideas of the fans! that would be cool.

  2. But for this movie i would like to see wolverine go against omega red, with the silver samuri as the secondary. that would be cool and the flashback ideas of team x is a good touch!

  3. Y Cant We Have Ogun.Its a Good Character with negative shades.Since if they r Showing Wolverine in Japan.They Can Also show Silver Samurai as a Supporting Character.

  5. Omega red is a villain I always wanted to see. He’s one of my favorite x-men villains. I think he’s more cool than sabertooth and juggernaut. I doubt he’ll show up in x-men origns: wolverine 2, since the plot will take place in japan. But, x-men origin: wolverine had many characters, so the sequel could have many as well. Silver samurai and team x could be awesome. If done right, I think I would like the sequel more than the original, because wolverine is more violent in japan. Maybe yuriko oyama appears in the movie.

  6. the big bad (developed) Sabretooth obviously, but also the SENTINELS ! this is essentially the fifth X-Men movie and they haven’t introduced those terrifying Sentinels..

    • They had sentinels in the danger room excercise in x-men 3

  7. i think that would be really cool to see silver samuria, omega red, sabretoothe turn into sabretoothe in wolverine 2 or at least in x-men first class’s sequel, and maybe even sauron, and some of the other mutants like beak,chamber,husk,glob herman,mammomax, and tito bohusk. i think that omega red,silver samuria,sabretoothe,sauron, and chamber would be the best mutants to use in the sequel given they were all connected somehow in the weapon-x program or the japan story. these are the mutant i want to see introduced to the x-men films besides apocalypse,sinister, and john sublime.

  8. i also want to see a sequel to first classs were cyclops is in it with sinister, and the sentinel storyline, and a x-men 4, and 5 back to back with the original x-men coming back together like colossus,angel/archangel,nightcrawler,iceman,gambit,wolverine,beast,banshee,rogue,kitty,storm,cyclops,professor-x,emma frost,mystique,sabretoothe,magneto,a better juggernaught,the real blob,sinister, and apocalypse. these are the x-men and need to come together once more for an epic story that kinda brings it all together.

  9. ohh and of course moria mctaggert would have to be a bing presence in x-men 4, and 5.

  10. few mutants that i can think of right now they never covered is Forge, Spike, Julblee, or Quicksilver

  11. there needs to be Theory of how The Liev Schreiber Version of Victor Creed Becomes The Tyler Mane Version of Sabertooth Brought to The Big Screen involing amnesia and a Prototype of Magneto’s Mutant creating Machine owned by Willaim Styker into creating Sabertooth and how Willaim Styker is Reponsponable for Creating Sabertooth and covers it up by Bribing The CIA into saying it was Just a failed Experiment gone wrong nothing to Personal or Expensive and should be scrapped from Styker’s Pensonal Computer and Personal Files thus covering it up as a big nothing. as a result none knows about it exsept for Willaim Styker and The CIA that is until Moria Mctaggard gains access to the Styker’s Pensonal Computer and Personal Files and sends Photocopies of them to Woverine to piece together what happened To Victor after his own Creation and find a way to make things right along the way deal with the Feral but quiet shaggy hairry animal that is Sabertooth and finally be a hero for real this time. thanks for lisening!
