Casting news has been pretty huge for The Wolverine lately. In less than a week we’ve reported on six different cast additions, and apparently there are no signs of slowing down. Twitch is reporting that Jessica Biel has been offered the role of ‘Viper’ in the upcoming film. No official word on this one yet, so treat it as a rumor for now.
The film is inspired by the celebrated Marvel comic book arc by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller and finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel clashes with adamantium claws as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
The Wolverine is slated to hit theaters on July 26, 2013.
