Gerard Butler
The "300" star is said to be courted for the role of the title character's nemesis in replacement for Karl Urban.


Words have heated up on the actor who suits up for the baddie role in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", the spin-off to "X-Men" trilogy. CHUD.com has brought up interesting tidbit that the 20th Century Fox now is approaching Gerard Butler for a possibility of him to play Victor Creed aka Sabretooth, the title character's arch-enemy.

The site claimed to have obtained from its closely placed and highly trusted source that the "300" star becomes considered after the studio's talks with Karl Urban for the role fell through. Sabretooth, one of the victims of the Cold War super-soldier program Weapon X alongside Wolverine, was initially portrayed by Tyler Mane in 2000's "X-Men", which found him getting blown through the head of the Statue of Liberty by Cyclops following a brief battle with Wolverine.

In its further scoop about the superhero project, CHUD.com added that director Gavin Hood appears to want Natalie Portman for the role of a character named Kayla. The site also said that Deadpool is likely to show up in the movie as well. Among Marvel Comics fans, the character is known to be another victim of Weapon X program who is notorious for his wisecracks, black humor, and satirical pop-culture references.
