More Casting For Wolverine
Daniel Henney is Agent Zero

22 February 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Variety

Today comes another piece of casting for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But this time it's not a mutant cameo. Daniel Henney has been cast as Agent Zero, a member of the Weapon X program and an expert tracker with lethal marksman skills.

The Variety story that announced Henney has also cleared up the role that Dominic Monaghan will be playing. It was rumoured yesterday that the ex-Hobbit would be play a mutant named Beak. That's not so much with the true, apparently. Monaghan will be taking the role of Barnell, a character from Wolverine's past who has the power to manipulate energy and electricity. That's much cooler than not being able to fly very well.

comes down to it in the end it's still going to end up being named as the fourth xmen/wolverine movies because that was what they were anyway. More

Why all the negativity?
Recall, if you will, that the characters announced thus far all directly relate to Wolverine's Weapon X arc - yes it's a number of characters, but it's not unreasonable considering they're all involved with that storyline. The only one that is confusing to me is Gambit. Aside from that potential mis-step, I see no reason to crown this an "X-Men 4" until further notice. More

Blade Trinity all over again?
X-Men 4? Don't you mean Wolverine 4, as the other 3 were basically glory pieces for that psycho with claws. The X-Men had a tendency to win fights not only because they trained all the time but because they fought as a team something which never really happened in the movie. This film will probably be as well handled as Cyclops' death, genius piece of writing there, so well done... More

RE:
L: MattCaine Idiots? Harsh, but fair, or just harsh? :) No we don't know anything yet, but, as a Wolverine fan, I'd like the movie to be about him. And, I just feel that too many cameos etc, will confuse non X-man fans, of be shoe-horned in a horribly cheesy way... I just want the my favourite ball of barely surpressed rage to be the star, bub! agree. And Blade 3 IS a cracking example. Lets hope they ARE cameos and not supporting cast or it'll turn into X-Men Origins: W More

WHAT PART OF CAMEOS DONT YOU IDIOTS UNDERSTAND? It means they will appear for a short amount of time, and as no one actually knows what the story of this flick is going to be. So how about you wait until we have at least some sort of storyline before you go into fanboy mode and tear it too pieces. More

RE: Told ya
This is me being very nerdy... Weapon X Fueled by the betrayal, Nord became one of the most efficient covert operatives in Germany. In the 1960s, his exploits caught the attention of the CIA, who offered him a spot in the clandestine Team X. He agreed, and at this time, changed his name to David North. As a part of Team X, he was one of several mutant operatives the government experimented on and utilized. Each member unknowingly received false memory implants, and North received an aging s More

Told ya
I said there would be a story of Mavrick / Agent Zero cast. He is a mutant though. And German to boot. Christopher Nord, Agent Zero, Ability to absorb kinetic energy, Force blasts, Accelerated healing factor, No discernible scent, Anti-healing factor corrosive. Can you see where this is going? And as for the hobbit, he's playing Beak. Barnell Bohusk. He actually looks the part in a funny way... http://www.marvel.com/universe/Beak More

Blade Trinity all over again?
MattCaine is spot on. Let's call this X-Men 4!! In the early days, Wolverine was a mysterious character, but Marvel have diluted his history to the point that he's no longer enigmatic or special. In a film about Wolverine, I want to see him in the spotlight. What are the odds this turns into Blade Trinity, with the main character relegated to the background? More

Too mant Mutants!?
Um... I think there's already way too many mutant cameos turning up in this movie! Is it about Wolverine, or is it about Weapon X? Even the comics spoilt Wolvies uniquness with too many Weapon X's, XII's, etc and the never ending parade of 'Mutant's with healinfg factors'. May as well call this movie X-Men 4. : ( More
