    ...so they're pursuing Portman for the X-Men franchise again? Interesting. I know she was unable to play Rogue due to her commitment to Star Wars, but I don't know if she would accept a role in a Wolverine movie. I find it interesting that Hood is possibly pursuing her though.

    Butler was great in 300 but I don't want to hear a Scottish Sabretooth. And Portman? WTF!?!

    Butler vs. Jackman would be sick.

    Just because his scottish doesn't mean his gonna do a scottish accent. He can do a good american accent as well. I don't want him as Sabertooth anyway.

    The problem is with Hugh Jackman being so tall its gonna be hard to find a taller actor to play sabertooth.

    To bad Dougary Scott never got to play Logan because of Mission Impossible 2 running over schedule

    There's just not much about him that screams "Sabretooth" to me. And I find it interesting that, if he does take the part, he'd be reprising a role that was nearly nothing in it's first appearance and played by an actor of little credit. I know the character will have more meat, and will probably be better written, but someone of Butler's caliber playing such a character doesn't seem to make sense to me.

    I love 300 and I love sabretooth, but put em together and you have a recipe for disaster. Have Gerard Butler play someone like maverick, but leave sabretooth to someone much bigger

    Dougray Scott is 6' tall. Between the two, I would still pick Jackman.

    I like Jackman too but I would of loved to see Scotts Wolverine. I think he would of done a good job.

    Jackmans listed as 6'2 1/2 or 6'3.

    If he can alter his voice I'd be cool with Butler as Sabretooth, he brings a real manly presence.

    Natty P in this would be :heart:

    I must be the only one who was glad Scott did not work out, I just don't think he'd make a good Wolverine.

    Now Butler on the other hand as Sabertooth is not a bad idea, I'd be ok with it. I mean, it's not a horrible casting decision, but then again I think there are other actor's who would suit the part better.

    Now, if they can get Natalie Portman that would be interesting. Although, wasn't Maggie Q supposed to be in this?

    With good blocking, this has essentially become a non-issue in Hollywood.

    Natalie Portman... I wouldn't have liked her as Rogue, and I'd absolutely hate her as Maggie Q. She's way too overrated. I'd actually prefer a no-name.

    Gerard Butler:up:

    Natalie Portman :down

    I would love Butler to take the role as Sabretooth. I do like Portman, but I'd much prefer someone of the right race playing Silver Fox.

    Is that such a bad thing? I don't think the character should be anything like how he was in the first X-Men movie. They shouldn't constrain themselves by trying to reconcile an cunning killer to that dumb beast from X-Men.

    Yeah, Maggie Q would probably be a much better choice for Maggie Q...sorry, couldn't resist.

    I really like Gerald Butler, but he doesn't scream 'Sabertooth' to me either. Then again, this is a different version of the character from the first film. Butler could bring it, acting-wise. Look-wise, I'm not so sure. Natalie Portman's totally out of left field, lol. Acting-wise, she's miles above Maggie Q, so if somehow it turned out true, I'd be for it. :up:

    IESB was the only site to report the casting; and even then they said they heard she was only in the running.

    Yeah! Butler would suck, I don't want a Scottish Sabretooth, either. That would be like having an Australian Wolverine!

    Wait, what?

    Honestly, I wouldn't mind Maggie Q in it, she's nice to look at and not a bad actress by any means. Although, the same can be said for Portman as well...excellent actress and nice to look at. :woot:
