Exclusive: A re-shoot for The Wolverine had a familiar face show up! Spoiler warning!
An extremely reliable source in Montreal has contacted JoBlo.com about a scene that was re-shot for THE WOLVERINE on Sunday and has given us some details on the new scene.
Before I get into spoiler territory, here's a bit of other information regarding the new scene: it takes place in an airport and all cell phones were (obviously) banned on set. The re-shoot was for only one scene and it shouldn't effect the release date for THE WOLVERINE.
This is where things get interesting. This news might not come as a huge surprise but I'd still consider it a spoiler so scroll past the image of Logan if you want to know who appears in the new scene.
So according to our source, the airport scene involves Wolverine....and Professor X. The new scene has the two of them walking into the airport and then going into a freeze frame. The source goes on to say that while things could always change, this is what he/she witnessed and was told on the set of the re-shoot.
What's interesting (and credit goes to fellow editor Alex Maidy for pointing this out) is that THE WOLVERINE is suppose to be set after X-MEN: THE LAST STAND and Professor X died in that film. Granted there was that whole transferring his conscious to a comatose patient thing but it sounds like the "real" Professor X was used for the re-shoot. I doubt it'll be explained why Professor X is alive in THE WOLVERINE but with Logan appearing in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST could the new scene be a tease for that film, similar to Nick Fury showing up at the end of the first IRON MAN? The scene does sound like it appears at the end of the movie, possibly when Wolverine returns from Japan.
Any other year THE WOLVERINE would be in most people's lists of top five movies to see this summer but there are a ton of options this summer. Plus after seeing the new previews for films like MAN OF STEEL, PACIFIC RIM and STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, THE WOLVERINE just doesn't seem as epic as some of the other big films this summer. That isn't necessarily a bad thing since THE WOLVERINE looks a little bit more personal and not so much about saving the world, but I do think excitement for the movie has dropped quite a bit recently. I really believe that THE WOLVERINE will be an excellent return for Hugh Jackman's character and that flying under the radar a bit might actually help the film in the long run, but I hope that the movie doesn't get lost in the shuffle of other high profile releases this summer.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima and Tao Okamoto, you can check out THE WOLVERINE when it claws its way into theaters on July 26th, 2013.
