While there weren’t too many things that went right in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a case could absolutely be made that Liev Schreiber‘s portrayal of Victor Creed (aka Sabertooth) was one of the things that did. Word until now of whether Schrieber would be reprising the role in the upcoming Wolverine film had been restricted to mere rumors and wishes, but the actor spoke up on the possibility last night at the Oscars. Here’s what he shared with MTV News:
“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.”
So it’s not exactly a yes, but it’s not exactly a no. If anything, it’s just confirmation that talks are being had. Which is something! How could Hugh Jackman’s last romp as Wolverine not include a run-in with his most infamous nemesis? The dynamic between the two characters has proven palpable, and as disasterous as the Origins movie may have been, an intriguing relationship was formed there that fans seem to want to see more of. And Schrieber seems into it! We’ll just have to keep our claws crossed.
