In the comics, Wolverine is known to sit down for a game of cards from time to time, and his on-screen counterpart will be doing the same in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. According to Comics2Film, 2006 World Series of Poker veteran Daniel Negreanu will play cards against Hugh Jackman in the upcoming film.

The news came from a report on 102.1 The Edge (a Toronto radio station) where poker star Phil Helmuth stated that he and Daniel Negreanu had been offered a chance to appear in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where they would be featured in a poker game with Jackman which would be interrupted by an unknown enemy. Helmuth had to decline due to other commitments, but Negreanu was able to film the cameo.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine explores Wolverine's early days, before joining the X-Men. The film will cover Logan's early life, and his involvement with the mysterious Weapon X program. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Dominic Monaghan, Danny Huston, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch,, Daniel Henney, and Lynn Collins. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is due to arrive in theatres in 2009.
