Words are "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has been put in between the power struggle of director Gavin Hood and the 20th Century Fox's co-chairman and CEO Tom Rothman. Allegedly, the two have different things in mind over the tone of the "X-Men" spin-off sparking further speculation that the tug-of-war for creativity is going on.

The alleged conflict is said to be resolving around whether the movie should go dark, somber and gritty like what Hood is imagining or it should take Rothman's idea of a brighter and lighter mood to gather more audience. On this creative differences, a source told Hollywood Elsewhere that Hood had built up a somber set, but when he was away from the set, Rothman had ordered to repaint the set from the top to bottom to make it less murky.

What effect this suggested power struggle will bring to "Wolverine" has yet to be uncovered. In fact, the truth of the story still remains a mystery since none of the reported conflicting sides has provided any comment on the matter.

Telling the story of one of the celebrated X-Men's mutants, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is set seventeen years before "X-Men" takes place. It will follow Logan as it tells his violent past and his relationship with Victor Creed and the Weapon X program. The film set for May 1, 2009 release puts up Hugh Jackman as the titular character and Liev Schreiber as Creed.
