Liev Schreiber doesn’t know if he’s invited to reprise his role as Sabretooth in the next “Wolverine” movie, but he thinks there might be a possibility now that the storyline is Old Man Logan.
The “Ray Donovan” star dropped by Jimmy Fallon‘s “Tonight Show” on Wednesday and addressed speculation he may return.
“I don’t know if I’m invited,” Schreiber said. “But I heard that the storyline is Old Man Logan. And when I heard that, I thought, ‘Well, you know there’s Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth.'”
Fallon asked the actor about the possibility after noticing a tweet that Schreiber had responded to, which made fans think that the actor was already involved in the project. In August, Hugh Jackman tweeted a photo of himself working out, to which Schreiber replied, “Do I have to do that…”
As it turns out, Schreiber’s tweet wasn’t confirming anything related to the movie.
“People have surmised that from my tweet, but I wasn’t,” the actor explained. “I was really just saying is that something I have to do as I get older. Is that how I approach middle age? Like that.”
The untitled “Wolverine” sequel is slated to hit theaters on March 3, 2017. Schreiber the Marvel superhero’s nemesis, Sabretooth — otherwise known as Victor Creed — in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which was panned by critics and fans, alike.
Jackman made his debut as James “Logan” Howlett, a.k.a. Wolverine, in 2000’s “X-Men,” and has played the character nine times since. He’s also expected to reprise the role in next summer’s “X-Men: Apocalypse.” The actor will put on his claws for the last time in the final “Wolverine” film.
