Schrieber takes over from Cox in Wolverine

LievSchrieber.jpgThe character played by the excellent Brian Cox in the X-Men films, William Stryker, is to be the main villain in the new Wolverine prequel, and while Hugh Jackman may be able to carry off the reverse aging, Cox appears not to be able or willing to. So a replacement was needed.

Liev Schreiber is the man to step into the shoes of Brian Cox as William Stryker, a piece of casting which seems pretty solid.

With this news from Variety through JoBlo comes the horrendous decision to change the name from Wolverine to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I would guess that they did a poll of idiots and found that they had no idea of the connection between Wolverine and the X-Men.

I also heard that the studio are going to provide free sat nav systems to help these people find their way to the cinemas.

What a ridiculous decision. At least swapping Brian Cox for Liev Schreiber is a good one.

Brian Cox was excellent in that role and one of the best parts of the trilogy, but Liev Schrieber is a solid replacement. The guy is great in everything I've seen. His recent appearances in CSI made the show much more interesting to me given that I'm usually just along for the ride with my wife's CSI addiction.

Oh I agree, Hap. Liev on CSI was wonderful. I'm a casual viewer, but made a point to catch the episodes he was on.

If he is indeed replacing Cox as Srytker I'm good with it, but only because I like Liev so much and wish he was cast in more movies.

I have to say Richard that your sense of humour is still very much intact there. HAHAHA

Like hap and Meli before me, casting Schrieber is a very good choice indeed.
