I thought she was already confirmed for the film anyway.

@lykopis: What's up with this movie and hair colors? First a picture of a japanese woman with red hair (I won't forgive Fox easily if that turns out to be Yukio) and now Viper without green hair? Serously, these guys need to do better research.

@Jeanniebird: I have been trying so hard to keep optimistic about his movie, really, really hard but seeing things like this just really disappoints. If you can't get the looks right, (yes, yes, I know Wolverine is too tall, lol) then how can I be confident you will do the story justice. Its what has everyone's hopes up -- that this will be the correction to all the wrongs of before. :/

I am saying...its kind of shallow. In Batman Begins almost none of the characters had the same look as their comic counterpart and it didn't hinder the story....unless I missed something and Ras Al Ghul always appears as a really tall, Irish ninja.....

@cattlebattle:

To be fair, Hugh Jackman has been very vocal about making sure he stays true to the story. When something like green-hair isn't adhered to (which is an extremely identifiable characteristic of Viper) then it gets me a little nervous. And its not the only thing. Its not as bad as casting non-asian actors for the Avatar (the last airbender) but let's see.

And yes --- it is shallow. The story could be awesome, the actress bang on with her interpretation of Viper, but asking for a green wig isn't too much, is it? Then again, I can see your point, it shouldn't ruin the whole movie either.

I can agree with you, somethings about some comic movies will turn me off....but only if its done haphazardly. For instance some movies (not just X-Men related) will take liberties with the characters, as long as their done for a logical or practical reasons I don't mind.

if I'm not mistaken, she was a main villain for Wolverine in the 90s to (she dated Silver Samurai) and nearly killed Storm (Storm returned the favor in Claremont's X-Treme X-Men); So I don't see a problem with her inclusion. I'm more concerned about the dialogue in the movie (the last Wolverine film sucked BIG time) and the continuity of the film (since the last one was everywhere and doesn't mesh with the last X-Movie at all *Emma Frost*).
