The movie seems good judging by the reviews (even the mixed/bad ones) but in quite a few I've read the critics have compared Viper to Poison Ivy from B&R..... even in the positive reviews. This doesn't mean she's like PI, but it's slightly worrying because she was the character I was looking forward to the most.

I wouldn't be too worried, a little theatricality can be a good thing. I'm more interested in Yukio myself.

I actually liked Poison Ivy.

I might like Viper for her over-the-top-ness.

Good point. Me too and I'm interested in Mariko as well.

I was told by a reliable source that both Yukio/Mariko were well portrayed in the film (Yukio is Logan's sidekick). Loki/Joker/Red Skull/Magneto/Sebastian Shaw were all theatrical/over the top villains, but they were also great ones to.

Yes, same. Poison Ivy was great IMO. We havnt had an over the top female villain like this in such a long time, Its refreshing. I tend to like over the top villains too. It reminds you that its a comic book come to life... it makes me appreciate what we are getting more. A comic book on the big screen featuring one of my favorite fictional characters ever!

Besides, As Logan knows, she's a crazy mutant B****!

Depends on the comic book (not every villain is over the top). I like Poison Ivy in the comics, but HATED her in the movie (I hate that movie so much that I won't refer to it by name). However, that was because she was written horribly (Uma realized this and acted accordingly).

Without being compared to anything in B&R.

For example I wouldn't say "Red Skull was great, he was like Mr Freeze".

I wonder if here skin shedding is to heal injuries. She looks like the classical femme-fatale (I wonder if she and SS are sleeping together like they were in the comics, villains team-up against Wolverine).

That's a good point. Considering the amount of screentime/exposure she has (lots of scenes of her using her powers, a few too many to be honest!), you would think she would be doing more promotions.

Also, I was thinking they might want to use her again -
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
but from what happens in the movie, it doesn't seem like she'll be coming back. I was hoping she would slip away into the shadows so she could appear in another X-Men movie sometime.

The problem is that Poison Ivy is associated with a film that killed the superhero genre for many years.

They should have been a little more restrained with Viper, it would have worked better.

With Viper giving off the Poison Ivy vibes and Jamie Foxx's Electro looking more and more like Ahnold's Mr. Freeze (I don't know why they would do this...), I'm thinking Hollywood secretly loves that Joel Schumacher abomination.

Cut it out Hollywood!

Nah, I'm sure they'll pull it off. It's Jaimie Foxx.

Dweeby Max = Gap in teeth

Lesson learned: Become Electro. Save on dentist visits.

Is it Viper interpretation really over the top? I hated Uma thurman performance..it looked like a play, like a shakespear play... THat was over the top...

I loved Viper in the trailers.. the way she tells "...a capitalist, a mutant, a viper..." and other things.. she looked really evil... hope i dont get disappointed..

Not really 'over the top' but I thought she used her powers too much, it took away the mystery and excitement a bit. There's a lot of scenes where she uses her poison powers.

I wonder if Viper will get her own performance like poison Ivy did in that fundraiser for botanical gardens. Lol

But yeah I doubt she is as over the top as poison ivy was, but her powers are probably similar. Is viper technically a template to how poison ivy should be portrayed if they ever re-introduce her in a batman movie ? Or is she just too cartoony?

Ok thanks X-Maniac!
I'm dying to see it!
It really looks like she is always spitting poison over and over from the trailers.. It was one of the things a didnt like in that Angel character from First Class.. But being a "Viper" has a certain logic... It would be cool if she shows a snake like Fangss...nice...

Really hard to answer that, I wasn't thinking of future Batman movies at all. Just wasn't on my mind that she was a template for anything.

But I did hope that they might find a way to use some of the Wolverine characters again. It would be too spoilerish to discuss who is alive at the end of the movie!

Well, I would like to see Viper work with another female villain like Spiral or Selene.

Electro sounds more like General Zod than Mr. Freeze (he's wreaking havok across NYC, toppling buildings and stuff like that).
