CelebNMusic247.com can that thank to fanboy journalism on the Oscars red carpet for turning the attention on to the on-screen superheroes in attendance. Get all the deets on the flip…
Here is what we learned from Collider:
While Henry Cavill was tightlipped when asked about Batman v Superman and Justice League, Liev Schreiber was a tad more forthcoming.
The actor, who celebrated in Spotlight’s Best Picture win, was rumored for a possible appearance as Sabretooth in Wolverine 3, the sequel to James Mangold’s The Wolverine. Though whatever the final call may be is still unclear, Schreiber confirmed that there have indeed been discussions.
Schreiber told 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.”
Schreiber only portrayed Logan’s rival in 2009’s disastrous X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Thanks to the timeline reset afforded the franchise by Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s like that movie never happened. Ryan Reynolds got a second go at his Origins character in the R-rated Deadpool, so shouldn’t Schreiber get the same opportunity?
Based on his response to Jackman’s Twitpic from the gym, it doesn’t sound like he’s no eager to get back into mutant shape.
Not much about the plot of Wolverine 3 has been formally laid out, though Jackman teased an adaptation of the Old Man Logan storyline at San Diego Comic-Con.
