Everyone’s been thrown into a mild panic this weekend as reports are coming out that Wolverine is undergoing massive reshoots, like, right now. For a film to be reshooting scenes this close to its release date is usually bad news, so Fox has called on the man himself to quiet the rumors.
Hugh Jackman wrote to Ain’t It Cool News to say this:
“Hey Mate- Would you mind posting this? Thank you for your support! HJ
Hey everyone –
It’s Hugh Jackman, sending this note from freezing Vancouver. I have read a lot of your online comments regarding the footage that we are currently shooting and I share your passion for the Wolverine character and the movie – I owe it all to you guys!
I wanted to reach out and let you know that due to scheduling conflicts with certain cast members and location/weather considerations, we had to wait until now to shoot a couple of scenes. Please rest assured that WOLVERINE will be badass and hopefully meet all of your expectations. I am stoked by the positive response to the teaser, which clearly reflects the tone and scope of the film. If you like that, we’ve got much more in store!
In the meantime, here’s an exclusive shot of some characters you may recognize…
That totally doesn’t sound like it was written for him, right?
The part of me that wants to see a sick Wolverine movie overshadows my other half which wants to see Fox go bankrupt and fold for all the evil it’s inflicted upon the world. Hopefully Hugh is right, and we’ll have a badass flick to see come May.
