The Wolverine: New Poster

3 Nov

I’m finding it hard not to love The Wolverine’s new poster.


Svetlana Khodchenkova in Wolverine 2

Last week, Jessica Biel dropped out of playing Viper/Madam Hydra in the new Wolverine movie. Biel’s departure created a bit of a problem considering Wolverine 2’s filming starts in less than a month.  On the bright side, fans didn’t seem particularly upset by the news.  Even though Biel would physically fit the role of Viper, her “acting” leaves something to be desired.

Fans tossed around some names for a new Viper that included Mila Kunis, Rooney Mara, and Kate Beckinsale. Surprisingly Marvel made a good decision and cast the virtually unknown Svetlana Khodchenkova. Svetlana’s only major American movie role to date was as Irina in Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy.


With the casting of Svetlana Khodchenkova and Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/The Silver Samurai, I’m starting to think that Wolverine 2 might not suck.

My biggest worry is director James Mangold who is pretty hit (3:10 to Yuma, Girl Interrupted) or miss (Kate and Leopold, Identity).

Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
