Hugh Jackman Still Working on ‘Wolverine’

Here’s upcoming Oscar host Hugh Jackman in reshoots for X-Men Origins: Wolverine in Vancouver.

Jackman, 40, is playing the feral Marvel Comics mutant for the fourth time, this time solo.

Well, not quite solo.

Ryan Reynolds and Lost’s Dominic Monaghan are coming along for the ride as fellow children of the atom, and Liev Schrieber’s cutting heroes to ribbons with his claws as the villainous Sabretooth—Wolverine’s arch-enemy.

Unfortunately, numerous reshoots have plagued the production.

MTV reports that Fox has ordered the Vancouver reshoots to “capture specific weather conditions.”

In an interesting move, Fox (perhaps to put off fears that the movie is a mess behind the scenes) has invited journalists to watch the ongoing production fixes.

The film is now supposed to hit theaters on May 1, and is being categorized as in “post production.” It still looks to be very much in “production.”

Jackman himself is trying to put fanboy fears to rest, sending an e-mail to Ain’t It Cool News: “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,” continued Jackman. “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!”

What do you think? Does all of this reshooting mean a bad movie? Will we see something that rivals The Dark Knight or are we talking Daredevil? Let us know in the comments section.

And take a look at that teaser again:

Yep, badass appears to be on the way.
