Earlier this week there was a big fuss over X-Men Origins: Wolverine reshoots/additional filming taking place in Vancouver. Most sites reported that they were ‘massive’ and that the film was in trouble. Hugh Jackman responded saying it was due to cast schedules. Now IESB have learned that one of the main reasons for the reshoots is to increase the role of Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds.
Thanks to IESB reader DPfan (I am assuming he didn’t think real hard about that handle – it means Deadpool fan right?) we’ve learned exclusively that more footage of the DEADPOOL character played by Ryan Reynolds has been added to the X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE film!
We are told Ryan Reynolds was busy a guy in Vancouver during the extra time the production spent there shooting some added footage for his Deadpool character! Apparently most of the footage shot included Reynolds and Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman.
Fox want Deadpool to have a big impact as they have plans to make a spin-off with the character. Beefing up the role will no doubt help that cause.
