I wouldn't mind if Gambit became Wolverine's sidekick in the 2nd Wolverine movie.

IMDB has Kelly Hu cast as Deathstrike. Is this only rumor or confirmed ?

^ That sounds like some IMDB person has gotten confused about a character's name, there is a female martial artist ninja type called Yukio in the book and movie(I guess they are in the movie too), and DS's alter ego is called YuRiko, so they have assumed DS is appearing again.

Shame if that's the case. Kelly would have been great. Perhaps they really want to distance the movie from the rest of the series. May be a cameo would do. I see room for Kelly to return in X4.

Lady Deathstrike is dead, and also to my knowledge has nothing to do with the Wolverine Japan graphic novel. I really don't see how Lady Deathstrike can be brought back into the series in the future. And this is coming from a Lady Deathstrike fan.

How do you know she's dead ? The Wolverine will take place before X-men Trilogy and all !

How did Gambit appear in XO ?

Because I watched her die in X2.

As far as appearing in The Wolverine, she's not a part of that story, so there's no need to put her in there.

Gambit appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine because he was the most wanted character and never got a spot in the X-Men trilogy, and because they were combining the Weapon X story with an X-Men prequel story as well, so they found room to put in characters like Cyclops and Gambit and make them work.

The Wolverine isn't acting as a prequel tale to the X-Men trilogy, and is it's own stand alone spin off. With Lady Deathstrike not being a part of the graphic novel they are adapting, there's really no reason to put her into the story in the movie. Especially when them putting her in the movie as an attempt to connect it to the trilogy wouldn't work anyways because Logan had no knowledge of who she was in X2.

Been thinking, and I'm going to say, any character that's considered a Wolverine character...ally or foe, any character that's been integral to Wolverine and his history......I don't want X-Characters crammed in for the sake of trying to fill seats or please the fanboys......

...since the story is the Japan story, I'd hope it would stay faithful to the material as far as characters are concerned...but I doubt it, if characters are going to be crammed into this, let them be Wolverine-centric characters...

But why would she when she's not a part of the story that they are telling?

Well if the moive is taking place in Japan it would just seem obvious that some Japanese XM characters would show up such Sunfire or Silver Samurai.

I'd like to see Sunfire make an appearance.

And isn't Silver Samurai a part of the mini-series this movie is based on?

Yes but the story that they are telling has plenty of Japanese characters to pull from, without needing to bring in a character that doesn't exist in the story they are adapting, nor would her appearance fit in with the continuity of the movie universe.

Kelly Hu says she's not in the movie.

It's too bad. I would've liked to have seen her in it.

Good. She has no place in this story.

The only supporting characters in this movie should be very human.

YAY! Another confirmed character!

I always wanted to see Silver Samurai since he was a part of the X-Men videogames that came out during the 90s.

This movie should have:

Logan
Mariko
Yukio
Shingen
Noburu-Hideki
Asano Kimura
Silver Samurai

There's no need for any X-Men characters. Since it's not tying itself to the X-Men trilogy, then the wedding sequence at the end can be filled with non-X-Men characters.

If X-Men: The Last Stand kept the alternate ending with Logan leaving and going back to Canada, then The Wolverine could easily take place after the trilogy, and the X-Men could make cameos in Logan's wedding, but since it's taking place before the trilogy, and not directly attaching itself to the trilogy or X-Men Origins: Wolverine then there is no need for any X-Men characters.

Except for maybe Viper, those are the exact characters from the Wolverine run they are adapting into the movie.

A run that was written by Claremont, and it widely considered to be one of the better Wolverine runs out there.

Unlike any previous movie featuring Wolverine, this is not [supposed to be] a sci-fi/action movie, but rather a crime-drama.

David Slade on the script by McQuarrie:

"The thing about Wolverine is I liked the script. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects had written a really good script. What was good about it was he had taken it out of the X-Men Universe. It was all in Japan, so it was more of an action drama ‘cause there were no other super heroes in it."

Wolverine is [supposed to be] the only superhuman character in this story. That's what makes it so interesting. If FOX starts adding mutant cameos and supporting roles, they'll pretty much confirm why I firmly believe Aronofsky left.

And that description of the script is pretty much dead on what the run they are adapting is. Logan is the superhuman. The rest of the characters, not so much. And it's not even so much about Logan being a mutant, so much as it's about him heading down the path of honor, leaving his animalistic brutality behind.

Yes, the X-Men show up late in the run, as the run bleeds over into Uncanny X-Men, but even there they are mostly there as guests to Logan's wedding. Rogue does help him out in battle at the end, and Logan and Rogue share a moment that X-Men obviously adapted in that movie, but the run is not about superheroes, it's not about the X-Men, it's not about mutants, or sci fi. It's about one man's journey to find himself.

The Silver samuri was not In the original Wolverine Mini Series.My feeling always has been that they looked at other Wolverine In Japan stories.

They are distanting themselves from X-Men Origins:Wolverine.Although there Is nothing to actully conterdict anything In Wolverine.This mostly takes place In Japan,and Is a more self contained story although it Is not a reboot of Wolverine as some would like It to be.Die hard X-Men fans can simply view it as Wolverine's time In Japan before the events of X-Men/X2(and The Last Stand If they want to still try after First Class of viewing It as part of film canon)

The Silver Samurai was In the leaked script details so the character was a part of the film when Aronofsky was attached.He Is likely In film to give Wolverine one more super powered opporent and because he's Shingen's son and Mariko's half brother.

For Die hard fans of the X-Men films The Wolverine shows how Logan goes from having no memory to finding his code that will Influence Who he Is In X-Men films.
