X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) Mutant Characters
A special sneak peek at the mutant characters from X-Men Origins: Wolverine courtesy of USA Today. They also did a great run down on each character shown and it here below or check out more at the site:
Wolverine (Jackman): Wolverine is very much the lead in this movie, Hood says. It's his story. Wolverines history with the Weapon X program was seen in brief flashbacks in the prior X-Men movies, but youll get to see the whole transformation from man to near-beast in his solo film debut.
Col. William Stryker (Danny Huston): According to Hood, the military man puts together the black-ops Team X, a group of mutants that Wolverine joins for a short period of time. Brian Cox played an older version of the character in the movie X2.
Emma Frost (Tahyna Tozzi): Those who follow X-Men comics know this popular character as an adult. In the film, shes a teenage telepath who can turn her skin into diamond.
Gambit (Kitsch): A card shark with the power to charge any object he touches with explosive energy, he features later in the film as a character Wolverine tracks down to help him in his search for someone who may or may not be the murderer of his lover.
John Wraith (Will.i.am): A close friend to Wolverine, hes a teleporter much like Nightcrawler, a character also featured in X2.
The Blob (Kevin Durand): The man also known as Fred Dukes is a 700-pound wrecking crew whos pretty much immovable when his feet are touching the ground.
Deadpool (Reynolds): A sword-wielding motormouth, mercenary Wade Wilson is another member of Strykers team who wont be the same man by the end of the film.
Agent Zero (Daniel Henney): Another Team X-er, this guy is one heck of a tracker and an even better marksman. He and Wolverine dont exactly see eye to eye.
Sabretooth (Schreiber): Wolverines half-brother Victor Creed is a feral villain whose long history with Wolverine made Hood drool with delight. "That is just great emotional backstory and baggage: Youve got two guys who are actually related, who hate each other and who are struggling with each other? Im in!
