First up, it seems that Gerard Butler, earlier rumored to be playing Sabretooth in the upcoming film adaptation, has denied having any involvement. According to movies online he “flat out” denied it at a recent press conference interview.
On another character front, we’re hearing some rumors about an actor possibly set to play Gambit. The Sunday Star Times has had a recent piece on Bailey Chase. You may have seen him in such shows as Ugly Betty and Saving Grace. With regards to his top secret role in Wolverine, he said,
“It’s very confidential and top-secret. I think they’re casting under alias names but for now, he’s called Mr Yellow.
“He’s about 30 years old, a charming southern guy on the surface but he’s got some ulterior motives going on underneath. By the end of the film, he’s probably not going to be such a nice guy.”
The circulating internet speculation is that this is in fact Gambit, but we can’t be certain and I’d like to emphasise this is of course just a rumor at the moment.
Thirdly, Aussie actress Natalie Imbruglia is rumored to have auditioned for a role in the flick, according to ENI:
