When 20th Century Fox announced that X-Men Origins: Wolverine would be heading into extensive re-shoots, some fans expressed concern that the movie wasn’t heading in the right direction. Fox has stood firm in saying that the re-shoots were always planned, and the movie will be just fine. Now, star Hugh Jackman is responding to those concerns via an e-mail to AICN (which includes a brand new promo photo; included on this page) and is insisting that all is well and that the film “will be badass and hopefully meet all of your expectations”.
Here’s the full e-mail:

Please rest assured that WOLVERINE will be badass and hopefully meet all of your expectations.
