Liev Schreiber Talks Sabretooth In Wolverine 3, Heard It’s Old Man Logan

Back in August, Hugh Jackman said that there were lots of calls for Victor Creed (Sabretooth) to come back for Wolverine 3. Then, after Jackman tweeted a photo of himself working out, Liev Schreiber (who played Sabretooth) replied, “Do I have to do that?”

Many fans took Schreiber’s reply as confirmation that he also was going to be soon working out to return as Sabretooth in Wolverine 3.

During an appearance on Tuesday night’s Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon pointed out Schreiber’s reply to Jackman’s tweet and asked him if he was indicating he was returning as Sabretooth in Wolverine 3.

Schreiber said, “People have surmised that from my tweet, but I wasn’t. I was really just saying is that something I have to do as I get older. Is that how I approach middle age? Like that.”

Then, Fallon asked Schreiber if he would be willing to come back for Wolverine 3. Schreiber replied, “Well, what I heard was... I don’t know if I’m invited,” said Schreiber. “But I heard that the storyline is Old Man Logan. And when I heard that, I thought, ‘Well, you know there’s Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth.’”

    I think he killed it as Sabretooth. He played the character and was on screen more than the one who came out in Xmen that people associate Liev as THE Sabretooth.

  1. He's a good actor but his version of Sabretooth was terrible. They made him way too human-like and not nearly feral enough.

    I thought that he was the best part of that movie. Much better than the bumbling lacky of Magneto in the first X-men movie.

    That's how I felt. I don't mind Liev playing the part again, but he should be a cross between the character in Origins and the one in X-Men 1. He talks, but he's as much an animal as he is a man. He also needs to look a little more animal like with the hair and claws, etc.

    This I agree with. I like this actor and enjoy his work, but I really don't think the portrayal in Wolverine was right. I don't blame him for that. I blame the studio. Although I don't necessarily think he was right for the role, I do believe he could adapt to it and his appearance can be adjusted to fit better. My only real concern is that he just isn't physically imposing enough.
