Jessica BielJessica Biel sure is living the life right now. She is engaged to Justin Timberlake, did some ESPY work with Tim Tebow and now Deadline reports that Biel has been cast as Viper alongside Hugh Jackman in 20th Century Fox‘s The Wolverine.


Viper has been on both sides of Logan in previous comics, at one point even blackmailing the lead character to marry her. Viper is a tough girl, orphaned as a child in Eastern Europe. She is a skilled martial artist, swordswoman and markswoman. Her other abilities include teleportation. She is also a noted strategist and tactician.


Jessica BielBased on the likeness, its a good bit of casting and it should fuel the interest in The Wolverine. The film needed a known fresh face — Is that an oxymoron? Maybe, but its true. Jessica Biel will be fresh next to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Though It will be the second Marvel project for Biel, who also starred in 2004′s Blade: Trinity, a film I think Marvel and the rest of us want to forget.
