I feel like it’s X3 all over again. Remember when that film was shaping up and we were reporting the addition of yet another actor playing yet another name brand mutant in that one? I was so baffled when some guy was announced as Madrox the Multiple Man. And while I may be alone in this one, the finished product wasn’t so overwhelmingly mutant-filled as to be unfollowable.
Take that to heart as more and more mutants are added to the cast of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Or don’t since so many of these mutants are being played by ‘name’ actors: Dominic Monaghan has signed on to play a character named Barnell. That name seems to indicate he’ll be playing the birdlike mutant Beak, but Variety describes his character as having “the ability to manipulate energy and electricity.” Hurm.
Also added is some guy named Daniel Henney playing some character named Agent Zero. Here’s his Wiki - I stopped reading these comics long before most of these characters were introduced by second rate writers, so I can’t help you with this one.
So what the hell is X-Men Origins: Wolverine going to be like? Will these characters have real roles? Are these all a bunch of cameos, like in X3?
