Four new characters are rumored to join the third instalment of the Wolverine spin off movie.
According to ComicBookMovie.com, a blogger hinted that the producers of Wolverine 3 pitched in several ideas of whom Logan will face in the movie. These four characters are his son Daken, the unpredictable Cyber, the deadly Omega Red, and his arch nemesis/haft-brother Sabretooth.
IGN has reported before that they made a survey of which character will fight Wolverine in the movie with Daken taking the number 1 spot. As we all know from the comics that Daken is the son of Logan from a Japanese woman named Itsu. He has the same powers as his father and has deadly issues with him.
Cyber and Omega Red on the other hand are two of Wolverine’s old adversaries in the comics. Cyber happened to train Wolverine during World War I, while Omega Red is hunting him down for Carbonadium Synthesizer.
As for Sabretooth, there have been rumors that they wanted Liev Schreiber to return to the movie, but there have been no confirmation yet regarding Schreiber’s participation in the project.
Schreiber played Sabretooth/Victor Creed in the first Wolverine movie back in 2009, and there have been several suggestions in the development of Wolverine 3 as they hinted to have an Old-Man Logan style storyline.
“Well, of course we’re looking at Old Man Logan, because that may be the only option left at this point! [laughs] We are looking at a lot of different storylines. No one has jumped out. You can tell from my answer that we’re still working it out. I’m working with Jim Mangold, which is exciting. Jim came on board The Wolverine after Darren [Aronofsky] left, so he inherited it. And of all the things that Jim can do, one of the great things he does is develop scripts. I’m excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven’t signed on signed on. I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it.”
Will we see these four mutants clash with Logan in Wolverine 3?
