We’ve been getting a string of character featurettes for The Wolverine this week (click on the respective links for Logan, Harada, and Yukio), and now one has been released for the villain, Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova). She describes herself as a chemist, but she’s also got some mutant powers. Some are silly but neat like her snake tongue and skin-shedding, and others are just plain silly, most notably her ability to hurt people by blowing on them. It’s hard to reconcile director James Mangold‘s previous statement about this film as a Japanese film noir, and then see a character like Viper.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film also stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, and Tao Okamoto. The Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th.
Via 20th Century Fox.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
