The sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine is well underway, and it’s added another name to its roster. According to Cinemablend, Will Yun Lee has signed up to play the film’s villain, The Silver Samurai.
The Silver Samurai is an appropriate villain for the metal-hard mutant Wolverine. Also a mutant, the Samurai has the ability to charge objects with a tachyon field and slice through any object he pleases.
The Wolverine follows its titular character (still played by Hugh Jackman) as he heads to Japan and begins to grow a consciousness about his identity. Production is set to commence next month.
