Hugh Jackman Responds to Wolverine Reshoots

For those of you that don't know, Gavin Hood (Director of Wolverine) is doing reshoots up in Vancouver right now. The fanboy outcries were heard far and wide about how this means Wolverine is gonna suck. Apparently they were heard up in BC as well since Hugh Jackman sent an email to Harry Knowles of Ain't it Cool News trying to explain the situation. It's as follows:

"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...



I guess we'll see is what we're left with, but the publicity shot is mighty bitchin'.
