At a press screening of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' in Los Angeles, director Gavin Hood explained the difference between the final cut and the early leaked version.
The theatrical cut of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" in one theater may differ from the others as Marvel reportedly prepared multiple secret endings on different prints. First Showing reported that director Gavin Hood suggested the possibility at a screening of the action fantasy film taking place Friday, April 24, on the Fox lot in Los Angeles, when talking about the differences between the film's final cut and the early leaked version.
While insisting on the featuring of multiple "Easter eggs endings", Hodd didn't mention how many different endings there would be. On the occasion, he explained, however, that the leaked version of "Wolverine" has 400 unfinished visual effects shots, no score, unfinished sound mixing, and unfinished coloring. Yet, he didn't say anything about differences in footage.
Earlier, Gavin Hood has explained that the final cut of "Wolverine" will still contain some surprises. "Don't leave before the credits are over," the "Rendition" helmer explained. "Now I say that and I better not be in trouble, because you do realize that I'm not done with the editing process and the studio still has to sign off on everything. But, yes, Hugh [Jackman] and I have a couple Easter eggs somewhere in there."
Previously, it was reported that a workprint version of "Wolverine" has been leaked and available for download on several bittorrent sites since Tuesday, March 31. Soon after, 20th Century Fox came up with a statement confirming the story as well as revealing their intention to pursue the source of the initial leak.
Taking the focus of the story on the metal-clawed mutant Wolverine, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" serves as a prequel to the "X-Men" trilogy. It chronicles the violent and romantic early life of the titular character, including his participation on the Weapon X program and his complex relationship with Victor Creed.
The action fantasy stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth, Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Danny Huston as William Stryker among others. Penned by David Benioff, it has been set to open in U.S. theaters on May 1.
