Will Yun Lee is set to play the Silver Samurai in the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel, the lead villain who will do battle against Hugh Jackman, who reprises his role as the titular character.

Variety reported the news earlier today, which comes just hours after four new actors joined the cast of the James Mangold directed film.

Yun Lee is set to appear in Sony’s Total Recall next month, which is also when production on the X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel is set to begin in Australia.

We’ll be certain to eye this production closely as it gets underway. Are you pleased with the casting?
