A few weeks ago, conflicts had arisen between Fox Studios and “Wolverine” director Gavin Hood regarding scheduled reshoots for the film. Hugh Jackman has commented on the situation over at Ain’t it Cool News and has even left a little hi-res treat for us. Here is Jackman’s e-mail:
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…
