Jessica Biel Offered Role In Wolverine Sequel
Wolverine is going to start filming soon, and we’re starting to get a lot of casting news. First we learned that Will Yun Lee will play the Silver Samurai, some more minor casting news was announced, and now we learn that Jessica Biel could be playing Viper.
Twitch Film has discovered that Biel has been offered the role of Viper in the James Mangold Wolverine sequel. The site describes Viper as “a complex character who at one point was a peer of Logan’s as well as an enemy. She was a major player in criminal organization Hydra and, in one story arc, blackmailed Logan / Wolverine into marrying her.“
Now this may not be the Marvel comics Viper we know, Iron Man 3 has a few villains popping up with a slight twist. Add to that the fact that there are a couple of Vipers in the Marvel universe as well. Twitch has description, but It could turn out to be Viper or the other Viper who also goes by Madame Hydra. How much of the comics Viper and how much is a new twist remain to be seen. With filming starting in mere weeks, I’m sure we’ll hear more about this and other characters.
