Los Angeles, CA – September 14, 2023
The “X-Men” film series has seen its share of ups and downs, from masterpieces like “Logan” to disappointments like “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” As “Deadpool 3” gears up to bid farewell to the Fox “X-Men” universe, it appears that Hugh Jackman is returning to reprise his iconic role as Wolverine, and he might not be alone.
Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman, known for his insider scoops, has teased that Liev Schreiber could reprise his role as Victor Creed, also known as Sabretooth, in the upcoming superhero threequel. While speculations have run wild about the possible appearances of stars like Halle Berry and Patrick Stewart, Schreiber’s potential return is generating excitement among fans.
“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” may not have received critical acclaim, but Schreiber’s portrayal of Sabretooth was widely appreciated. He brought depth and gravitas to the character, making him a standout despite the film’s flaws. Notably, Schreiber’s Sabretooth offered a more authentic depiction than the version of Deadpool in the same movie, whose mouth was infamously sewn shut.
It’s worth noting that Schreiber wasn’t the first actor to bring Sabretooth to life on the big screen. Tyler Mane portrayed the character with a more animalistic approach in the original “X-Men” film. However, Schreiber’s take on Sabretooth added emotional depth to the character and was one of the film’s redeeming qualities.
While this exciting development isn’t confirmed yet and should be taken as a rumor, it’s not entirely far-fetched. “Deadpool 3” is already buzzing with rumors of cameo appearances, and Schreiber’s return wouldn’t be out of place. The only lingering question is the extent of his role. If the film turns into a cameo extravaganza, Sabretooth might only have a limited presence. However, if “Deadpool 3” chooses to delve deeper into the complex Logan/Victor dynamic, it could provide an exciting new dimension to the character.
“Deadpool 3” isn’t just introducing the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse; it’s becoming a grand celebration of all things Marvel. With Jennifer Garner reportedly reprising her role as Elektra, it seems fitting that Schreiber’s Sabretooth should join the party.
As fans eagerly await official confirmations, “Deadpool 3” promises an unforgettable reunion of beloved characters when it hits theaters on May 3, 2024.
