But what about the future? What other baddies from the comics should be brought in to fight the clawed Canuck?
Here’s a list of villains Logan has crossed claws with at one point or another (and in some cases, quite often) who we’d like to see brought to life on the big screen in a potential “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” sequel.
With incredible strength, advanced healing, and bionic tentacles, Omega Red became a deadly warrior. But due to a side-effect of his transformation, he is forced to feed on the life force of others in order to survive. With the fall of the Soviet Union, Omega Red is on the loose, pursuing his own agenda.
Audiences might find it fun to see Wolverine face an enemy who literally lives only to kill.
With his martial arts skills and light-weight armor protecting his entire body, the Samurai could be a difficult enemy for Logan in a film.
The Reavers once ambushed Wolverine when he was alone and actually crucified him for his crimes against them, a scene that would definitely be shocking to see on the big-screen.
It’s rare to see Logan actually fear someone, so a battle with Cyber would be a new experience for movie-goers.
Called “Daken” (a slur on his illegitimacy), the boy grew to be a man with Wolverine’s incredible healing, heightened senses and retractable bone claws. He also had the added ability of being able to manipulate the emotions of others. Though he later learned that Wolverine hadn’t killed his mother, Daken has lived all his life training to be a killer and his darker morality still puts him at odds with a father he can’t help but hate.
Audiences might find it interesting to see Wolverine forced to battle the child he was never given a chance to raise, the boy he still loves no matter what.
