The enhanced senses of Wolverine were tingling thanks to all of us talking about those "extensive" reshoots. They were tingling so much that his real life counterpart Hugh Jackman actually e-mailed Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News to clarify what was going on with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and sent a photo that includes Deadpool, which I've added to our gallery below.

Here's Jackman's e-mail in its entirety, for your reading pleasure:

"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 ...



So, they apparently aren't that extensive, but the usual type of pick-up shots, and we must continue to hope that Gavin Hood's vision wasn't crushed under the studio heel. In the meantime, I'm going to go giggle over the fact that Jackman's e-mail is apparently "," and then sulk because he doesn't e-mail me. Maybe I should play harder to get.
