Is Sabretooth the Villain in the Wolverine Spin-off?
There hasn't been any news at all since Hugh Jackman's press tours last fall for The Fountain, but a slight rumor has appeared courtesy of an MTV interview with Tyler Mane, who played Sabretooth in the first X-Men movie. The Wolverine spin-off is confirmed, but no real pre-production details or plot points are known. However in the interview, Mane cryptically answered that he may play the villain.
"We will see," an optimistic Mane revealed recently. "There is talk of a Wolverine-Sabretooth [plot], and we will see what happens with that." Mane might have some competition from Vinnie Jones, however, who has insisted in the past that his Juggernaut will be the target of those famed adamantium claws. Nevertheless, Mane's comments would seem to support fans who believe the prequel will have Logan seeking revenge against Victor Creed - who eventually became Sabretooth in the "X-Men" comic book series. "We will see," Mane said cryptically. "You never know."
Mane's Hollywood career is already kicking off fairly well, as he's set to play the new Michael Myers in Rob Zombie's Halloween. As awesome of a character as Sabretooth is, I really didn't like him in the first X-Men, but it may be the ultimate Wolverine film given he is Wolverine's arch-nemesis. Keep watch here at FS.net as this news and more on the Wolverine spin-off develops.
