This is an unofficial news site about the X-men spinoff film, Wolverine. With Hugh Jackman reprising the role of Logan, Gavin Hood shall direct a story exploring Wolverine's origins, as written by David Benioff. Production begins in November 2007 for a projected 2008 US release.
The Coventry Telegraph are reporting that local man Scott Adkins, a martial arts expert has been cast as the mysterious Weapon 11 (or Weapon XI) in the Wolverine movie.
No one knows who the Weapon XI character is, and this move is very intriguing. Wikipedia offers us some insight:
No individual with the ‘Weapon XI’ moniker has been seen, but John Sublime has mentioned it. A likely candidate for Weapon XI’s true identity is the Hound (a mutant with the power to hunt and kill other mutants), who was transformed by the Hound Program of the US government into a techno-organic killing machine. He battled the government-sponsored incarnation of X-Factor after massacring scientists at a US government research facility, nearly killing Sabretooth in the process, but was stopped by Polaris, who was forced to use her power at its full limit. He was later after Shard, but was destroyed in an explosion after being defeated by her and Bishop.
More budding photographs have been snapping their cameras at Hugh Jackman whilst on set for the Wolverine movie. This time Flynet have posted some shots of our movie star looking jovial, some possible spoilers here if you can read into the clues, but mostly just hunky images with large watermarks. I wouldn’t get too excited.
We’ve just got our first pictures showing Liev Schreiber donning claws and green torn shirt as Sabretooth. I’ve included the best shot below, the rest are rather candid and unappealing, but you can see the full gallery at Just Jared, there’s also a couple of shots of Hugh Jackman throwing an apple in similar attire.
