Is Liev Schreiber Returning as Sabretooth For Wolverine 3?
Just when you thought you'd heard the last of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, comes a new report that Liev Schreiber has had talks about reprising his role of Sabretooth from that film for Wolverine 3

While speaking to MTV News on the Oscar red carpet on Sunday, the actor revealed that he has actually spoken to Hugh Jackman about putting on the claws again:

Opening quote
"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."
Closing quote


Obviously, this revelation has us a little worried. And it's not because Schreiber made a bad Sabretooth; he was actually pretty solid in the role. But X-Men Origins: Wolverine was just such a bad movie that we were really hoping the franchise was completely disavowing it. Then again, if Deadpool can retcon that character using the same actor who appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (and who was way worse than Sabretooth, btw), then maybe a retconned version of Victor Creed, still played by Schreiber, could work after all. We'll have to see if anything comes of this, but as long as Wolverine 3 pretends that X-Men Origins: Wolverine never happened, then we're tentatively on board with seeing Schreiber return as Logan's archenemy.
