After starring as Victor Creed/Sabretooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Liev Schreiber revealed why he didn’t return in the role for the 2017 film Logan.
Why didn’t Liev Schreiber come back for Logan?
Thinking back to his roles in a GQ video, Schreiber was asked why he didn’t return as Sabretooth in Wolverine’s latest solo movie, Logan. The actor revealed that he was not asked to return and that the character was not part of this story.
“They didn’t ask me,” Schreiber confirmed. “No, I mean, I don’t think he was part of that story, you know?” He was not part of this story. I would have loved to bring Victor back, anytime, anywhere, but he was not part of this story. I wonder if I’m getting a little long in the tooth, so to speak, but probably not for Sabretooth.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released in 2009 to mostly negative reviews. The film showed the origins of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine from Fox’s popular X-Men films of the early 2000s. The Marvel film established Wolverine’s antagonistic relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth, portraying them as half-brothers . Although X-Men Origins: Wolverine was poorly received, it made for a very fun video game.
