One of my favourite things about X-Men Origins: Wolverine was Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth) played by Liev Schreiber. He was menacing and the character was a vast improvement from the Sabretooth we saw in the first X-Men film. As he wasn’t killed off there could be a window of opportunity for him to return for Wolverine 2 which is in development, however Schreiber has told CinemaBlend that he’s not sure if he’d want to come back.
“I’m over 40 now, and do I really want to go through the physical stuff that it took to pull that off again? I’m not so sure.” At the same time, he sounded a bit like a fanboy when discussing possible futures for his character. “As an audience member, I’d be really interested to see how you’d go from the Liev Schreiber Victor Creed to the Tyler Mane Victor Creed [from X-Men]. So I’d like to see that.”
Is Liev hinting at another Sabretooth recast there? We haven’t really heard much on Wolverine 2 since 20th Century Fox announced they were developing it in May, however there is a good chance it will take Wolverine to Japan and follow the samurai storyline, so Victor Creed might not be needed.
While Liev may be too old to be charging around on all fours, he’s not old enough to be running around with Angelina Jolie in Salt, which will be released next July
