BREAKING… Jessica Biel has been cast as Viper in 20th Century Fox‘s The Wolverine. The Victoria/Viper character has a long arc in the X-Men mythology and is a juicy role in the film. According to Marvel lore Viper bounces between good and not so good and she holds some sway over Wolverine but is mostly a foe to the X-Men and Avengers. It will be the second Marvel project for Biel, who also starred in 2004′s Blade: Trinity. She’s next up co-starring opposite Colin Farrell in Total Recall, which Sony is releasing August 3, and Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man, due out August 31.
