Liev Schreiber would be down for "Old Man Sabretooth" in Wolverine 3

09.02.2015

As Hugh Jackman's final film as Wolverine moves ever closer, one of his most formidable foes has let it be known that he would be down for the chance to go claw-to-claw with Logan one last time. Liev Schreiber, who portrayed Victor Creed/Sabretooth in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon recently and was asked whether fans could expect a Sabretooth/Wolverine showdown in WOLVERINE 3.

Well what I heard was, I mean I don't know if I'm invited, I heard that the storyline is Old Man Logan, and when I heard that I thought 'well, you know, there's Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth.'

Over a month ago, Hugh Jackman had asked fans what they would like to see in WOLVERINE 3 and later revealed that "there were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back." As Liev Schreiber was one of the very few decent parts to come out of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, I really do hope that he can return in WOLVERINE 3 for the brutal Wolverine/Sabretooth fight we all want. Sabretooth doesn't make much of an appearance in the "Old Man Logan" comic, but as the story also features plenty of characters that Fox doesn't have the rights to, I'd imagine that there will be plenty of changes to the story should "Old Man Logan" really serve as the backbone of WOLVERINE 3. Remember, that "Old Man Logan" bit isn't official yet.

James Mangold is returning to direct WOLVERINE 3, which will be released on March 3, 2017.

Pass.

Sorry, but nothing about X-Men Origins: Wolverine should be considered canon.

One thing I didn't get about Origins is that Sabretooth was always supposed to be stronger than Wolverine, adamantium claws or not. They made him considerably weaker in this installment and I disagreed with that choice because I liked how Wolverine always entered a fight with him knowing he was outmatched, but he did it anyways. Sure, Sabretooth deserved to get his kicked, but maybe they could find a more creative way to do it this time around.

I would rather they brought Tyler Mane back or recasted, or go all CGI like Colussus in Deadpool before bringing Liev back. There was so many things wrong with Origins but he was definitely one of the weakest aspects of the train wreck. Most the excitement I have right now for the last Wolvie movie would be gone if he ends up coming back, like someone before me said, he looked nothing like Sabertooth.

Hope they do bring Schreiber back as his take on Sabretooh was one of the few bright spots in the first Wolverine movie.

Another side question, is there any possibility of a Wolverine: Origins director's cut?

If Civil War can get Spiderman, why can't Old Man Logan get Hulk?

Why not? One last battle to the death between Wolverine and Sabretooth.

I think the Old Man Logan storyline is very doable with the slate of characters Fox has the rights to. You just need to make some alterations to the history of how the world got to the state that it is in. Perhaps instead of Marvel villains rising up and winning over the superheroes, it's a plethora of X-Men villains that rose up and overthrew the various X-Men teams. They've divided up the word and Logan now lives in one of their domains. Perhaps instead of Hulk's land, he now lives in

You can't have Hawkeye, Hulk abominations or etc. in it. One plus side would be adding Sabertooth. Make him as grizzled looking as Kurt Russell in Hateful Eight though.

I respectfully disagree.

Not that I've ever met the man but I just plain don't understand the overwhelming love for Liev Schreiber, I also don't understand the overwhelming love for his portrayal of Sabretooth. Every single aspect of X-MEN Origins: Wolverine sucked, Schreiber included. Sabretooth is supposed to tower over Wolverine, look more like Tyler Mane in the first X-MEN film, be savage, unhinged and at least give the appearance of a credible threat to our beloved Logan. He just played himself with fangs, claws

What if they dressed up Liev Shrieber with more of the Taylor Mane look?

100% agree with you, Liev was a horrible Sabertooth and I have seen the movie Defiance.

This would be kick ass.

Quite frankly, they could do a Liev Shrieber Sabretooth movie.

Would LOVE to see this happen and would definitely make up for the wasted opportunity that was Origins Wolverine. Like ConMan said, one of the few positives to come out of that film.
