UPDATE: Numerous sources report that Jessica Biel is no longer attached to play the role. There’s no word yet on a replacement.
Twitch Film reports that Jessica Biel has been offered the role of Viper in the new X-Men movie, The Wolverine.
Viper, also known as Madame Hydra, is a bad ass terrorist working for the criminal organization HYDRA, and she’s gone up against Wolverine and other X-Men characters over the years. She’s also squared off against Captain America and The Avengers, so expect her to be a formidable foe in the new movie.
There’s no official word if Jessica Biel will get the part. The Wolverine will begin shooting soon, and claw theatres next summer. Jessica Biel will next appear in the remake of Total Recall, which aims to make your dreams come true on August 3.
