According to IESB, the recent new Wolverine movie reshoots consisted mainly of additional scenes between Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds). So what is the significance of this?
These additional reshoots may actually be a good thing for the film.
Among Marvel Comics fans, Deadpool is a pretty popular character, and people have been wondering how he’ll be portrayed in the film. Of course it’s difficult to draw conclusions from any of this, but the buzz is that more Deadpool in the movie in face to face scenes with Wolverine is good news.
For those not very familiar with the character (and that includes me), here’s a bit of a description:
Nicknamed the “Merc with a Mouth”, Deadpool is a high-tech mercenary known for his wisecracks, black comedy, and satirical pop-culture references. Like the X-Men’s Wolverine, Deadpool is the product of the Canadian government’s paramilitary Weapon X program, although his place of birth is unknown. After Weapon X cured his terminal cancer by implementing a regenerative “healing factor” extracted from Wolverine, Deadpool is left disfigured and mentally unstable. (Wikipedia)
I don’t know… is there some hope for this flick after all?
X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens on May 1st, 2009.
