Jessica Biel cast as Viper in ‘The Wolverine’
The actress will play the villain in upcoming X-Men spinoff.
Casting on ‘The Wolverine’ is in full swing but aside from Hugh Jackman, no big actors were announced for the cast and the studio was more keen on Japanese actors instead. Now, that just changed.
Twitch reports that actress Jessica Biel (Total Recall, The A-Team) has been cast in the X-Men spinoff as Viper, a key villain role in the film. Her character is a part of the terrorist organization HYDRA, who then blackmails Wolverine into marrying her. Sounds like a Bollywood movie, but this is pretty interesting nonetheless.
More to come soon.
