Is Jessica Biel Wolverine's Newest Villain? Scoop From Comic-Con

We already know Hugh Jackman has one villain to go head-to-head with in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel, but will he be battling Jessica Biel too?

Deadline reported this morning that she was set to star in the film, but don't pre-order your tickets just yet, fanboys.

"That's not totally true. It's a little too early to say," Jessica explained at today's Total Recall Comic-Con press conference.

Don't get too upset though, X-Men fans, because it sounds like the wheels are moving.

And after getting the chance to kick ass in Blade: Trinity and now again in Total Recall (catfight with Kate Beckinsale, anyone?!), we think she'd make quite the formidable foe to Jackman's Wolverine.

The villainous Viper—the role Biel is rumored to be taking on—has no superpowers of her own but is strong, fast and knows how to handle a weapon.

Oh, and she's a great blackmailer. A skill she uses, in Marvel lore, to force Wolverine to tie the knot with her.

So, while celebration might be premature at the moment, we think Jessica better keep up her Total Recall fitness routine. She's gonna need it!
