Ya, I really didn't like this character at all, maybe a different actress would of helped? Also, felt like she was a carbon copy of 'Poison Ivy' in ways..

Hopefully. It'd be a shame to get stuck with such an inadequate portrayal of a cool character.

This was posted in the comments section of Slash Film. I read this before seeing the film just now and I did spot some minor issues with the voice.
I hope we see her deleted scenes!

I want to see more of Viper!

And I want to know why she changed her outfit in the climax .

Well they cut some of her scenes.

And we ended up not knowing her story that well.

Yea I thought the whole shedding thing was pointless. I thought she was gonna turn into like a huge snake or something but nope, just bald version of herself ha. Maybe the deleted scenes will expand more on her story.

Such a cheesy character in a film that was otherwise pretty dark and gritty. Felt out of place. I hated that the actress put on her "evil" voice literally every time she spoke.

She was one of the only problems I had with the movie.

Well, I wasn't exactly happy with her being used in this franchise as I wanted her to be in a future Cap movie. But I was willing to get past it. Then I saw the trailers and she seemed to be playing an entirely different character so I thought there was still hope that she could turn up in the MCU.

I wonder what will be the difference if they didn't dub her voice.

I loved Svetlana. I still can't believe she was that sweet girl from tinker tailor soldier spy. Shame she couldn't keep her russian accent but I'm glad she made female villains cool again.

Precisely. With luck if MS and Fox can use someone like Quicksilver then that'll apply with V/MH as well.

Hmmm it's just a comment from some random dude...i don't know how reliable that is.

And is there an official confirmation about her voice being dubbed or that she has some of her scenes deleted?

She wasn't really needed at all, other than the fact that she made Wolverines flesh weak, then she wouldn't have served a purpose. But somebody else could have easily done this to logan. After all Shingen was a biologist as well.

She was also Yashida's doctor and the one who set up the whole silver samurai etc so I don't see why we wasn't needed. Also I think it would have been pretty crappy if she'd made Wolverine's flesh weak and then disappeared.

Shinger or Harada could have easily poisoned logan or inserted that thing in his heart. Harada was working for old man Yashida as well. Harada was the leader of the black clan of ninjas too. Yashidas doctor could have easily been just a background character. Yashida and Harada working together makes more sense to me.

I think it's better that it tied in with Viper, much prefer that than somebody random been his doctor. Viper was devious and sinister the actions fit with her but wouldn't have fit with Harada.

Also I don't get how Harada would have got close enough to Logan to do it either, it was different with Viper cause she was a woman ad was able to trick Wolverine after drugging him. Had it been Harada would have ruined his moments for be. He makes a great debut at the funeral and we really don't know if he's bad or not. Plus he proved in the end he wasn't evil.

I don't know why it bothered you so much that it was Vier, better to have an actual character there.

Weak, weak villain only included to give a (pointless) nod to the comics. Also the dubbing was laughably bad. Wonder why they went for the exaggerated American accent, when the character isn't American anyway and they had already cast a Russian actress in the first place.

Faora was a far superior secondary female villain, in every way.
