Jessica Biel starring in The Wolverine

After years of false starts, we won’t officially believe this movie is actually happening until we see it unspooling on the screen, but here is some more news on The Wolverine.

According to Twitch (and confirmed by Deadline), Jessica Biel will star as Viper in the James Mangold directed X-Men spin-off.

Once a significant cog in the evil Hydra machine, Viper has been both enemy and ally to Logan/Wolverine in the comic saga (even blackmailing him into marrying her at one point).

Hugh Jackman reprises the role of Logan, and is joined by Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Rila Fukushima and Tao Okamoto in the Japan-set (but Sydney shot) action flick.

Discuss: Glad to see the wheels of production turning once again?

  1. Very glad to hear work on this is starting up again, but from a Marvel nerd point of view how is the Viper and Hydra connection going to play out? Hydra was seen in Captain America which was Marvel studios while Wolverine is based at Fox. Probably no Hydra connection then. Still Viper is great villain. Looking forward to this.
