Dominic Monaghan is Beak, aka Blackwing

20th Century Fox has cast former Lost star Dominic Monaghan as Barnell Bohusk, aka Beak/Blackwing, in X-Men: Wolverine, sources reveal exclusively to

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), (Kestrel), Danny Huston (William Stryker), and Lynn Collins (Silver Fox).

X-Men: Wolverine slashes its way into theaters on May 1, 2009.

Barnell Bohusk was one of the students recently in the comics. So why would they include a newer mutant in a movie about Wolverine’s past? Weird. Maybe they just included the wrong wikipedia info. But I do love Dom…

That blue spandexed dude is so not the blackwing they are talking about. Do a Google image search for Barnell Bohusk and you will see the mutant tragedy that is this beak faced scrawny plucked chicken. He’s a good character, couragous, gritty, but powers are totally useless and not yet within his control

As long as they are cameos I think more mutants will be okay. But if they keep adding more and more mutants for bigger talking roles I think it’s going to be too much and it’ll distract from Wolverine.

Yes, yes, yes!! I love Dominic. I was so bummed when Charlie died. This movie just keeps getting better and better. Of course, just having Hugh in it would be enough. Can’t wait.

This came from Wiki? So it can be easily untrue.

It’s getting harder and harder to wait for that movie to be released!

Yay Dominic! That is our Poketo tee shirt he’s wearing there!!

I’m still bummed Maggie Q is not in the movie, but I like Dom so that’s cool.

THis is the best news I have heard all year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
