Badass New Full Cast Photo from X-Men Origins: Wolverine!
In response to the recent news about X-Men Origins: Wolverine doing extensive reshoots, Hugh Jackman himself sent over a new cast photo from Wolverine to Ain't It Cool News. Seen below from left to right is Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Taylor Kitsch as Gambit, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth, and Lynn Collins as Silver Fox. Still missing is Beak, Agent Zero, and The Blob, but it looks like this is the team being talked about in the trailer. In addition, Jackman says in an e-mail that the reshoots were always planned, even though I don't believe him. Check it out and click for full size.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is directed by South African filmmaker Gavin Hood, of the Oscar winner Tsotsi and Rendition previously. The script was written by veteran screenwriter David Benioff, of 25th Hour, Troy, and The Kite Runner previosuly. The character of Wolverine was first created by Len Wein and John Romita Sr. back in 1974. Fox will debut X-Men Origins: Wolverine in theaters on May 1st, 2009.

TKaihea on Jan 17, 2009
Sick Does anyone know if gambit will be a good guy or bad huy in the film?
Eddy Fung on Jan 17, 2009
i like ryan reynolds but i hope his performance as deadpool is more serious and badass then the character he played in BladeTrinity in which he was kind of the goofball. im a little woried that his performance as deadpool will be the same as him in Blade.
jim on Jan 17, 2009
lol...gambit doesn't look like a man at all.
Matt Suhu on Jan 17, 2009
I trust Jackman. He' s proved he is a professional and really loves and respects Wolverine. This pic is trully badass. The film will be AWESOME!!!!!
chris on Jan 17, 2009
Anyone else pissed that Deadpool's skin isn't deformed like in the comic?
chad on Jan 17, 2009
guys why should we have faith and trust in hugh jackman when he allowed wolverine to become cyclops/squad leader of the x-men? this movie continues to look too much like x-men 3 and is too focused on getting the right pose and fitting in as many mutants as possible. talk about lame!
andrew on Jan 17, 2009
i am of course referencing the shitty x-men 3 when logan became cyclops/squad leader.
andrew on Jan 17, 2009
Ryan Reynolds is great. Deadpool is great. Ryan Reynolds as deadpool does not look so great.
Brian Ricci on Jan 17, 2009
Deadpool was always a goofy oddball guy. I just don'e get why his face isn't all fucked up (from cancer) like in the comics... I mean that's why he went to weapon x in the first place, right?
Trystan on Jan 17, 2009
you DON'T believe him? Laura Donner announced the re-shoots back in OCTOBER, jesus, get your facts straight before posting something like this.
Des on Jan 17, 2009
I think ryan reynolds is great for deadpool. He has said that he is actually a fan of deadpool. And i guess we will have to wait for his own movie to see deadpool in his sweet mask and costume :/
Dan W on Jan 17, 2009
Jackman is simply a BEAST! I really hope this is good.
Scott McHenry on Jan 17, 2009
"Hugh Jackman said the reshoots were always scheduled but I don't believe him" LMAO!
KyB on Jan 17, 2009
@18...Jackman isn't a beast he's a wolverine, Kelsey Grammer is a beast
peloquin on Jan 17, 2009
why is everyone besides hugh jackman is looking down its f'ing weird
eric on Jan 17, 2009
Awesome pic. Forgot that Reynolds was actually in this film as Deadpool! Alex, I like you, man, but this: "Hugh Jackman said the reshoots were always scheduled but I don't believe him" Come on, man. That's just rude. You're better than that. Anyway, REALLY looking forward to the movie now.
Chris @ ComicHacks.com on Jan 17, 2009
@9 Lol i thought it was a female too. i dont know but wolverine looks bad ass but for some reason when i look at everybody else i think "brokeback mountain"
Q on Jan 17, 2009
**** Looks like 3 gay guys checking out Jackman and ignoring the gorgeous woman... Right?!?! ****
J.White on Jan 18, 2009
**** Or maybe Jackman didnt shower that day and smells awful in the open air tank-top. Hes doin the shoot and noone wants to be the one to say anything. Does look dirty. ****
J.White on Jan 18, 2009
It's a pretty statuesque male cast they have there, only person below 6' 2" is Gambit, and I was suprised that Ryan was the shortest of the rest at 6' 2" when that's pretty tall in most books.
Andreas on Jan 18, 2009
What a terrible photo. Most of them aren't looking at the camera, some have been caught with their eyes closed. Very amateurish. 😉
Vole on Jan 18, 2009
Why am I seeing Deadpool's face? #8 Deadpool is a goofball. So if he's not playing that, he's not playing Deadpool right.
L on Jan 18, 2009
That's bad ass! I pray this turns out good.
K on Jan 18, 2009
This could be pre-'hamburger' face Deadpool... Maybe they'll have his face get messed up in this movie, and yes #8 Deadpool is the goofiest badass ever. Reynolds is perfect for the roll.
nate on Jan 18, 2009
Holy crap, that really Is pretty damn badass. And Jackman really freaking brings Wolverine to "life" in that picture.
Darunia on Jan 18, 2009
#8 Dude, more serious? You want a serious Deadpool? Do you even know anything about the character? Deadpool is a 24/7 goofball.
Darunia on Jan 18, 2009
#1 - hahaha perfect
Nick Sears on Jan 18, 2009
# 26 This picture was done in photoshop, you can clearly see that each character's pose was taken separately. Is it just me or does Wolverine's claws look really fake?
Omega728 on Jan 18, 2009
One of the things about Deadpool is that hes the only character who breaks the 4th wall, Hopefully the movie version does the same.
TigerClaw on Jan 18, 2009
Man that poster looks ill...Hugh was born to be Wolverine
trey on Jan 18, 2009
@34 I dont know if you got this memo, but hugh jackman doesnt really have claws in real life... So they had to work with what he's got
richard on Jan 18, 2009
#8 Deadpool is a goofball. maybe one of his personalities is serious, but the other....what 3? are crazy and wack. good photo.
fL on Jan 18, 2009
They got the hair right
Jaf on Jan 18, 2009
I like this photo. I'm going to check it out no matter what.
Bry from Chi on Jan 18, 2009
The Scaring of Deadpool's face will happen digitally in the movie.
Fox Wins on Jan 18, 2009
Photo is ok, until you see Sabertooth's hand. Wow those claws look so fake!
Mike J on Jan 18, 2009
#22: I dunno, I really am wondering if Alex is any better than that. He's just hating on Hugh Jackman here just to hate on FOX. I still think the movie looks great. I can't wait to check it out on opening day (preferably at midnight).
Chris C. on Jan 18, 2009
I think Hugh Jackman as Wolverine can carry a whole movie. I don't know about any of the other X-Men (Storm? Where have you been, Halle?).
zubzwank on Jan 18, 2009
what is this bullshit of sabretooth being just a dude with sideburns?
arkhamite on Jan 19, 2009
#37 Wow, all this time I really thought that Hugh Jackman really did have claws, thanks for the wake up call...... All I'm saying is that they could've done a better job, at least make it look like it's actually coming out of his fists. Right now it just looks like someone did a really shitty cut and paste job.
Omega728 on Jan 19, 2009
Planned reshoots? Okay. I don't believe that for a second either Alex. But the trailer looked good and it does have a good cast so I remain hopeful.
John on Jan 19, 2009
to #8 today is not your day how about a refresher? He is nicknamed the "Merc with a Mouth" for a reason, Deadpool is a high-tech mercenary known for his wisecracks, black comedy, and satirical pop-culture references. 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, the cancer didn't do that to him but the Healing factor side effect did. So Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, couldn't ask for anybody else in my opinion. But one thing does puzzle me Deadpool was never part of the first weapon X program as Wolderine but of the second Weapon X program. oh Well that's hollywood. And a little refresher I know #37 and #46 were being sarcastic but for those who didn't know. Wolverine's mutation also consists of animal-like adaptations of his body, including pronounced canines and three retractable claws housed within each forearm. While originally depicted as bionic implants created by the Weapon X program, the claws are later revealed to be a natural part of his body. The claws are not made of keratin, as claws tend to be in the animal kingdom, but extremely dense bone, and can cut substances as durable as most metals, wood, and some varieties of stone. Wolverine's hands do not have openings for the claws to move through: they cut through his flesh every time he extrudes them. Painfull! and that was Marvel comics 101. Hope to see you again. And BTW the movie will do well I think.
Rudy on Jan 19, 2009
GAMBIT is a huge FAIL the rest of the cast should make the film ok......................
insanartist on Jan 19, 2009
good pic but i must agree that wolverine's claws were kinda off... it floats above the picture because it's TOO WHITE & TWO DIMENSIONAL to match the intended pic effect, which is kinda dark... the claws looked like a piece of paper on top of the picture... sigh! can't wait for the movie though...

Unless Deadpool is disfigured and driven nuts early on, they are really missing an oppurtunity with this character. My biggest fear is that they are hoping to have enough success to spinoff a Deadpool franchise, and in that case, will leave out all of the Deadpool story just making him a meaningless side character who says a smartass comment every so often. I really doubt we will see a mask since too many people will just see him as "Ninja Spiderman". Hell... I just don't see how they could even try to squeeze in something like where he got his name. Deadpool's role (after going batty) usually involves messing with other characters in other storylines and generally being maniac. The guy stole Agent X's pancreas, suckerpunched Shadowkat (just to piss off Wolverine), and when once actually assisting the Xmen insisted on wearing Jean Grey's classic uniform (keep in mind his entire body is horribly scarred and those outfits were skimpy). Even in his shared title with Cable, Deadpool's role in the plot was often just bizarre. I don't know how they are planning to fit him into the universe.
Stevo on Jan 20, 2009
wtf are they looking at?
Silver on Jan 20, 2009

J on Mar 11, 2009

s.smith on Mar 28, 2009

s.smith on Mar 28, 2009
if the dude who plays gambit messes dis up imma be fuckin pissed
koopa on Apr 1, 2009
i have seen the rough cut of this film and its not bad at all. Could have used more displays of abilities from some of the mutants in the film. DeadPool is really funny in it. He will be in any spinoff unless they do a prequal to the wolverine movie. Basically he gets be-headed by Logan. The gambit fight scene is really short but worth the wait. Jackman has done bangup job as Logan in this film. The Gambit character plays the roll very smoothly not too shabby. Sabertooth is played very well in this variation. Emma Frosts scenes were sweet! I wish she had more that the few in the film. Cyclops as a teen was an interesting part in the film also. They show several mutants from adulthood down to early teens, which I really didnt reconize at all. As I said the version I watched was a rough cut un-edited not complete. so there will be some parts that I must see in the theater to get the full effect of this film. Enjoy....
The Spoiler on Apr 15, 2009
well i saw the movie and its not to bad but idk about them killing off most chars and how logan has his story line hmmm idk....
sixsixsix on Apr 21, 2009
