Biel out of Wolverine

Khodchenkova in?

Reports during the week suggested that Jessica Biel had landed the role of sexy Marvel villain, Viper, in The Wolverine, but you have to stay on your toes in Hollywood as Collider now reports that Biel is out. Talks have broken down between the A-Team actress and 20th Century Fox, the circumstances regarding the split are unknown, but it could have something to do with the wealth of movies Biel currently has in the pipeline. This year alone, she will star in Total Recall, The Tall Man and Playing The Field with the awesome looking Hitchcock hitting theaters in 2013.

 

The rumors are now circulating that Svetlana Khodchenkova may play Viper in The Wolverine.

What hasn’t changed is that Hiroyuki Sanada is playing Shingen Yashida, Will Yun Lee is playing Kenuichio Harada aka the Silver Samurai, and Tao Okamoto is playing Logan's love interest, Mariko. Hugh Jackman is returning to reprise his role as the title character.
 
The Wolverine is to be directed by James Mangold for a July 26, 2013 release. The latest adventure will find Logan/Wolverine in Japan, where he will have an ill-fated romance with Mariko, the daughter of a yakuza boss.

Thanks to

I don't care.  Until I see a trailer that suggests to me that it might be better than Origins; then I just don't give a rat's ass.

 It's pretty hard not to be better than Origins so I'm sure you'll care.

The only reason Jessica isn't gonna be in it is because I won't unchain her from the radiator anymore. She said she'd go out and get me some pizza once and she went out and co-starred in all those movies.

She's back in the house to stay...and I still didn't get my pizza!

Touche, Hanso.

 Mythos, I'm just shocked that they've cast at least two Japanese actors to play Japanese characters, instead of assuming interchangability.

 as much as I hope im wrong, I think this movie will bomb.GIVE ME AN R RATED WOLVIE movie

 This movie should be a good one...and should do better than Origins only because next Summer so far isn't a huge blockbuster summer for superheroes. That and the fact the story of Wolvie's Japan adventures are fan favorites.

Well, if it was a Marvel studios movie I'd guess she wanted more money but since FOX is still churning out X films, maybe she was just holding out for a bigger part to jump (back) into the comic movie swimming pool.  Who knows, maybe she wants to be Wonder Woman.  Or maybe she read the script for the Wolverine movie and...
