Underworld 5 will feature Tobias Menzies as the new Lycan leader Marius. He will star opposite Kate Beckinsale in the newest film of the action-horror franchise. Scott Speedman and India Eisley may return to reprise their roles as Michael and Eve.
According to Deadline.com, Menzies is all set to star as the major and enigmatic character Marius, leader of the Lycan clan. The new werewolf head is reported as a new threat to their opposing vampire enemies although it is still unknown whether he will be a friend or a foe to Beckinsale's main vampire protagonist, Selene. The television, theater and movie actor is known for his roles on Game of Thrones and Outlander.
Speedman may be back to reprise his role as Selene's Lycan/Vampire hybrid lover Michael Corvin. Although his character was referred to a number of times in 2012's Underworld: Awakening, he wasn't physically involved in the filming and was only appropriated with stand-ins and previously archived footage. He did admit that he may return in future films saying that if his part were dynamic and important enough he would jump back in.
