First, actor Dominic Monaghan was Beak, and now he’s Bolt — and finally, we get a good look at him in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
20th Century Fox raised some eyebrows when Monaghan was first announced in the role of Barnell “Beak” Bohusk in this week’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” A mutant who developed feathers and various other avian characteristics at an early age, Bohusk was criticized for his lack of heroic abilities — and was a strange addition to the film’s combat-minded cast of mutants. At some point in production, however, Monaghan’s role was changed to that of Chris Bradley, the electrical-powered mutant known as “Bolt.”
We haven’t seen much of his character thus far, though — and in the clip below (SPOILER ALERT), we could be seeing the last of him in the “X-Men” franchise. But that’s what happens when you get on the bad side of Sabretooth, eh?
