Wolverine Cast Gets Bigger

Potentially a whole lot bigger.

by | February 19, 2008 | Comments

Now that filming has finally begun on the first X-Men prequel, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, details of who will be joining Hugh Jackman on his latest trip down Adamantium Way are starting to come to light.

Details like, for instance, JoBlo‘s report that Danny Huston (30 Days of Night) is playing William Stryker, the U.S. Army colonel with an axe to grind against mutantkind. This news kinda-sorta adds weight to earlier reports that had Liev Schreiber playing Wolvie’s arch-nemesis, Sabretooth.

And that isn’t all: Not to be outdone, IESB has shared the news that Lynn Collins (The Number 23) has signed on to play Silver Fox, the hard-to-kill object of Wolverine’s affections. If you’ve been paying attention to the rumors, Collins as Silver Fox comes out of left field; other reports had Maggie Q or Michelle Monaghan tabbed to take the role.

But wait, there’s more! According to a member of SuperheroHype’s message board community, Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) has joined the cast, too — as Gambit, the card-throwing, stick-wielding Cajun anti-hero. The scooper claims that Kitsch has signed a three-picture deal.

Even Ain’t It Cool News has gotten in on the Wolverine casting rumor fun, speculating that none other than Ryan Reynolds has been chosen to play the “merc with a mouth,” Deadpool.

A final bit of Wolverine-related info comes from Film School Rejects, where “a very reliable source” has passed along an interesting, albeit spoilerish, piece of information about one of the film’s possible villains. We’re not going to share it here, but if you just can’t resist, follow the last of the links below!
