EXCLUSIVE: Liev Schreiber Explains If—And How—Sabretooth Should Return For ‘Wolverine’ Sequel

With so much attention being paid to the debuts of Deadpool and Gambit in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” it’s easy to overlook the impressive performance of Liev Schreiber as one of the franchise’s returning characters, Sabretooth. Along with bringing one of Logan’s most popular nemesis to life, Schreiber added significant depth to a character whose appearances had previously been limited to grunts and the occasional growl.

While the ending of “Wolverine” certainly leaves the door open for Schreiber to return to the character, Logan’s impending journey to Japan might complicate a cameo from Sabretooth. When we had a chance to chat with the actor during a press event for his upcoming film “Taking Woodstock,” we had to ask him whether we’d see his take on Victor Creed in the next X-Men movie.

“There’s been some smatterings of conversation about it, but nothing concrete yet,” Schreiber told MTV News. “I had a ball doing it, so I’d do it again.”

“Hugh [Jackman] mentioned that he had some conversations about it, but no one’s told me about it yet,” he said.

As for what story he’d like to see told with Sabretooth, Schreiber said it was that difference between his take on the character and the more primitive, animalistic version of the character Tyler Mane brought to the screen in 200’s “X-Men” that most intrigued him.

“I’d love to find out what happened to Victor,” he said. “I’d like to find out how my Victor became Tyler Mane’s Victor.”
