Deadpool Focus of ‘Wolverine’ Re-Shoots? January 25, 2009 4:53 pm

deadpoolwolverine-012509Only a few days ago, Hugh Jackman was forced to respond to fan concerns over planned re-shoots for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, inisting that all is well. It was unknown at the time what the focus of the re-shoots would be, but we may now have an answer to that.

IESB is reporting that the character Deadpool, played by actor Ryan Reynolds, was at the center of the re-shoots, along with Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman:

We are told Ryan Reynolds was busy a guy in Vancouver during the extra time the production spent there shooting some added footage for his Deadpool character! Apparently most of the footage shot included Reynolds and Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman.

This isn’t your mother’s cameo…Deadpool is full on! Reynolds will appear in the film even more than originally planned!

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:

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…

Cheers,

Hugh

“There’s a scene in the first X-Men movie,” said Jackman, “where Wolverine’s introduced in a bar, fighting in a cage, and you felt that he did this every night of his life. If this movie is successful, you should feel that this guy can walk straight off the end of this film and into that bar. “

UPDATED 7/25/2008 AT 1:00PM: Despite not creating the character Wolverine, Stan Lee will have a cameo in the film. [MoviesOnline.ca]

———————————

20th Century Fox had a special treat for fans attending the studio’s presentation today at Comic-Con.  The actor, who plays Wolverine/Logan in the upcoming X-Men spinoff X-Men Origins: Wolverine presented to a crowd footage from the film.

Here’s what was shown, via IGN:

The trailer-like sequence opens with Logan and Creed in a military prison cell where they survived execution by firing squad for decapitating a senior officer. They are met by Colonel William Stryker, who offers them a chance to serve their country by taking part in the Weapon X program. We then saw glimpses of the team’s different members: Blob, Deadpool. Wraith and, in perhaps the biggest mass geekgasm Hall H has ever heard, Gambit.

We then see Logan in the tank where he undergoes the adamantium process, awakening in a beserker rage and slashing down a number of guards. Stryker then calls on Creed, clad in a black trenchcoat and black outfit, to hunt down his old Army buddy Logan. You can imagine how that turns out.

The footage showed Gambit tossing his trademark cards and riding a motorcycle. There was plenty of shots from a chase sequence between Wolverine on a motorcycle, Army trucks and a helicopter. The wartime sequences appear to be set in the Vietnam era, with the New Zealand countryside doubling for Southeast Asia.
