The X-Men will soon jump over to the MCU now that Marvel has the rights back. Fans often talk about who could play the usual suspects in the franchise – Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, etc. – but let’s not forget that the studio has also got their hands on all those other X-characters that Fox has been wasting. Case in point: Sabretooth, Wolverine’s nemesis. Who could portray him in the MCU, though? Well, why not Jason Momoa?
Boss Logic recently shared an amazing piece of art which casts the Aquaman actor as Victor Creed. He writes in the caption on his Instagram post that fans had asked him to do something with Momoa as Wolverine, but he personally thinks the star would be a better fit for Creed. And after looking at what he came up with, it’s hard to disagree with him.

Sabretooth first appeared on screen in 2000’s X-Men. Tyler Mane looked the part in the role, but there wasn’t much to the character. In contrast, Liev Screiber’s version was totally different in appearance to his comic book counterpart but was a superior all-round portrayal. In fact, he’s one of the few highlights of 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Schreiber was originally supposed to cameo in 2017’s Logan as well, but his guest spot was ultimately written out of Hugh Jackman’s X-Men swansong.
As Creed has been so underused in the Fox franchise, then, it might be smart for Marvel to focus on that character over some of the other villains we’ve seen a lot of before now (*cough* Magneto *cough*). Plus, Momoa nearly landed an MCU role a few years back, as he was in the running to play Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Of course, his continued ties to the DC universe could prevent him from playing another major superhero role, but what do you think? Would Jason Momoa be a good fit for Sabretooth? Have your say in the comments section below.
