Jessica Biel Offered Viper In 'The Wolverine'

It's been a busy couple days for the James Mangold directed The Wolverine.

And now a big one has dropped. Twitch has learned that Jessica Biel has been offered the role of Viper, a complex character who at one point was a peer of Logan's as well as an enemy.

This would be so cool. I just love her. She does really well in action movies too.

i dont know if its a good idea because if her character is associated with hydra then the film might be ambitious to try to connect wolverine with the avengers via captain america storyarc, while i know that the current storyarc is set in japan with silver samurai as the main villain. i hope whatever they are planning will be good. the last wolverine was entertaining but there were inaccuracies that caught most of my attention.
