Following the abundant online news regarding the reshoots taking place on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, producer and star Hugh Jackman has spoken up silencing all the nay-sayers claiming the reshoots are a bad thing in resposnse to audience test screenings…apparently not, as clarified below. Accompanied by a rather swanky new photo which can be seen above!

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…(see above)
