The villain for The Wolverine is...

07.21.2011

While this may be no huge surprise, Hugh Jackman revealed the villain he's facing in THE WOLVERINE.

Who is it? Like this news really needs a SPOILER warning, but for those who get prefer one...

WARNING! STUFF YOU MAY ALREADY KNOW IS GOING TO BE POSTED JUST BENEATH THIS SENTENCE!

 

OH GEEZ!

 

It's the Silver Samurai. Jackman confirmed the villain during a surprise Comic Con appearance at the REAL STEEL panel. This is what Wolverine himself had to say: “I’m filming LES MISERABLES in February, but before that I will be filming WOLVERINE 2 in October. Chris McQuarrie has written a fantastic script and it should turn out really good. I’ll fight the Silver Samurai in it so that should be exciting. Most of the filming will take place in Japan.”

As far as I know, the ties between Silver Samurai and Logan has to do with Wolverine falling for Mariko Yashida. This is bad for many reasons. If you don't know, I'll keep you in the dark. If you want to know so bad, just Google it. I don't want to be the one to spoil the "Wolverine goes to Japan" party...

So Sad

I'm more interested in the new that they are making another Les Mis (which is completely unnecessary) than I am about ANOTHER wolverine movie.

Knowing Fox, they will replace Mariko with Yuriko (and we all know how much she sucks as a character). Then they will throw in Omega Red, Maverick and Cyber (but they will be nothing like their comic counterparts). F U FOX! (and yes, I'm still bitter about Deadpool)

Fuck Fox

So what do you think the chances are of FOX sticking their noses in this again and saying "More Characters! More Characters!". Maybe they'll even screw with the canon again and bring Itsu into the story instead or Mariko so they can introduce Daken. Damnit I just made myself angry.

Me worried we might get another crappy film. Kind of surprising Fox has made any good films at all, the way that gangster Rupert Murdoch operates all his multiple companies. Phonehacking, warmongering, sleaze-peddling, and an intentional dumbing down on the info-tainment is their modus operandi.

Predators

They should get the guy for Predators that played Hanzo, the Yakuza. He has a presence and a working relationship with FOX.

Great idea! Definitely has the charisma. Wonder if his height would be an issue.

Wait...

He actually calls it Wolverine 2? I thought this was supposed to have no connection to X-Men Origins. At least it didn't when Aronofsky was involved...

Well, considering Aronofsky walked away from the project because Fox was trying to control it too much (Deadline reported this, and they always seem to be right) -- I wouldn't be surprised if the studio wasn't comfortable with it being considered a "standalone film." They probably want a more straightforward sequel. Yay! (Sarcasm.)

Ok. We'll see though. Look I love Hugh Jackman. Great guy and a good actor. It's just that I've never bought him in the role of Wolverine. Origins was a prime example of what can happen when an actor produces his own starring movie without a great director behind the wheel. Like most people my heart sank when Darren Aronofsky left this project. I was really looking forward to seeing Jackman being directed by Darren as Wolverine. Until this movie surprisingly blows my mind I will always

I didn't find anything significant in my research as to why it's bad that Wolverine falls for Mariko. It all looked like generic forbidden love crap to me. Unless you're talking about how it involves Silver Samurai, that's hardly a significant spoiler. It's really quite generic. I mean when I found out the connection, it didn't strike me as anything special. The way you hype it up in the article threw me off. I was expecting something more interesting.

This isn't news nor is it a spoiler. Silver Samurai has always been THE villain for Wolverine while he was in Japan. This story line has been done many times in the comics, not to mention again in Wolverine and the Xmen animated series.

Presumably Jean Valjean...it's written for a tenor, which Jackman is, and they'll probably fill this with a starry cast, so they'll want big names for Valjean, Javert, Fantine & Eponine.

I saw his show in Toronto. He's in negotiations to play Jean Valjean.

Who bets a white guy will play Silver Samurai? Probably Hugo Weaving.

This isn't news to me since I always knew it would be Silver Samurai. Wolverine is in fucking Japan! Who else would be the villain?
