WOLVERINE Cast Increasing Again

Back in 1859, settlers in Australia introduced the bunny rabbit into the country’s ecology. As they had no natural predators in this new environment, the rabbits quickly multiplied to point where they were in danger of throwing the whole ecosystem out of whack. Within a decade, settlers could hunt and kill up to two million rabbits a year without any noticeable impact on the rabbit population.

Something similar may need to be done to the cast of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Since we last reported on the latest cast announcements for the X-Men franchise prequel, Variety has come forth with two more names to add to the film’s ever-increasing cast list.

The Lord Of The Rings‘ Dominic Monaghan has signed on to play Barnell, yet another mysterious character from Wolverine’s past with the ability to manipulate electricity and other forms of electricity.

Also joining the cast is Daniel Henney, playing the enigmatically named Agent Zero. Zero is another product of the government-sponsored program that created Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the previously announced Kayla Silverfox and Wraith. All of the characters have served on the superpowered covert ops group Team X, so comic fans will probably already have a good idea as to where the film’s story is heading.
