Another day, another “Wolverine” casting. So what else is new? The latest has Lost star Dominic Monaghan joining the feral Canuck as Beak, aka Blackwing, who according to reports, has a somewhat significant role in the movie. Then again, this movie has more mutants than all 3 “X-Men” movies combined, so who knows.
According to Wiki, Barnell’s body changes into that of a humanoid-bird form, with a beaked face, bulbous eyes, wing-like arms that give him the ability to fly (albeit clumsily), talons on his hands and feet, and double-jointed knees. In mutant form, Beak also possesses heightened agility, and he may possess heightened senses and a lighter skeletal structure like the avian X-Man formerly known as the Angel (Ben Foster played this character in X3).
Monaghan, 31, be joining Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Liev Schreiber (Sabretooth), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Taylor Kitsch (Gambit), Will.i.am (Kestrel), Danny Huston (William Stryker), and Lynn Collins (Silver Fox).
I’m still waiting for them to introduce the Wendigo and members of Alpha Flight…
