Another cameo in Wolverine

Well we already know that the Wolverine film is going to be really chock full of Marvel superhero and villain cameos. A ton of the Weapon X people will be there, as will a few awesome baddies, and now if the rumors hold true, a young Scott Summers, aka Cyclops.

Superhero Hype is reporting what seems to be a fairly solid story that a young Australian actor named Tim Pocock has been cast as a younger version of Scott Summers. Presumably this would be a meeting (if indeed they do actually meet) between Scott and Logan, before Scott joins the X-Men. Although the actor appears to be in his teens I can understand why if they were casting this role they wouldn't want Marsden to play it. He's just too old, and as much as we know so far the Wolverine movie is going to be taking place in the 70s and 80s.

I have to say as a true comic geek I love this kind of move. Its basically designed to get fanboys excited... and I suppose it works. Cause Cyclops in the Wolverine film is pretty damn cool. Now if only they'd put in an Alpha Flight cameo... then we'd really be cookin.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is set to come out May 1st, 2009.
