Liev Schreiber and Hugh Jackman have spoken about Sabretooth returning

02.29.2016

With Hugh Jackman's final appearance as Wolverine growing ever closer, there's great hope that the UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL will, as Hugh Jackman has said, give us the perfect Wolverine film which we've all been waiting for. Jackman has been teasing fans with what they could be in for with this final outing, including "berserker Wolverine" and the return of Victor Creed a.k.a. Sabretooth. Liev Schreiber played the role with great relish in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE and remains one of the very few bright spots in that otherwise forgettable entry in the X-MEN franchise.

Schreiber has previously said that he'd be open to returning to the franchise and those fans that would welcome his return, myself included, will be glad to know that he's actually had conversations with Hugh Jackman about that very thing. MTV News caught up with Liev Schreiber on the red-carpet during last night's Oscars:

We talked about it. I don’t know. I mean, 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. Old Man Sabretooth.

Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine film, which is said to be drawing from the "Old Man Logan" story, may also follow in DEADPOOL's footsteps as Twentieth Century Fox handed out pamphlets during their Toy Fair 2016 presentation which labeled the films anticipated rating as an R. Before you start getting excited, keep in mind that it's not exactly a sure thing that the UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL will arrive in theaters with all its blood and guts intact; but even if it does debut with the X-MEN franchises' customary PG-13 rating, I'd imagine that the Blu-ray/DVD release will give us more of the good stuff.

The UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL is set for a March 3, 2017 release.

You can easily place Sabertooth in Old Man Logan. Liev deserves another shot at this character.

I have it on DVD and the kids like to keep watching it - I still stand by my initial reaction to the movie - that I enjoyed it. From it's absolutely knock it out of the park intro (with a great theme) to the fight on the top of the cooling tower - the movie had some very exciting moments. Sure, they royally f**ked up Gambit and that really bothered me (at the time, I didn't know who Deadpool was, so was very neutral to his treatment - though knowing what I know now...that's clearly another

I also didn't care for the Silverfox betrayal (have no clue if that's from the comics or not). In any case, a lot of the best scenes in the movie, from the intro to the cooling tower fight also involved Schreiber and I agree with everyone else, he was very good.

Regardless of the finished product, I loved that shot of Logan & Creed fighting each other at the top of the screen.

He was the SOLE bright spot in Origins. I loved him int eh role. While I think his look could have used some tweaking to be more in line with the look from the original X-Men movie and comics, the way he played the role was fucking amazing. Look forward to having him back for one final entry.

I agree about his look. I didn't think he would work but ended up enjoying his performance and I thought that he embodied Sabretooth's personality. I like my heroes to look like the comics. I gotta see Jackman put on the mask just once before he goes.

If it's based off of the Old Man Logan story, they can easily swap out the Hulk with Sabertooth and the ultimate brawl.

Yeah rereading OML, hulk has to be sabertooth and make it full circle. Who are the others? Dr doom? And....? Dr doom would have to be magneto I think.

I rolled my eyes when he was first cast, I just couldn't see him as sabertooth. He actually crushed it though! I wouldn't mind seeing him reprise the roll at all.

It would be great if he were to return considering he was easily the best part about Origins: Wolverine and one of the better castings of any of the X-Men universe characters.
