Default Re: The Wolverine - Bloodier Extended Director's Cut on Bluray?

Here's a scene description of more of the ninja scene!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
As the night wore on, we returned to the Ice Village set where David Leitch had resumed filming the big battle scene with the ninjas. There we finally saw what we had come to see – Hugh Jackman in action as Wolverine. Seeing him with the iconic claws and hair while surrounded by bloodthirsty ninjas was quite a sight. As my fellow press realized, this was Jackman's sixth time to play Wolverine in a feature film (counting cameos). That's a superhero record when you consider that Christopher Reeve played Superman four times, Robert Downey Jr. played Iron Man five times (don't forget "The Incredible Hulk"), and Samuel L. Jackson played Nick Fury five times (and about to tie for six with Captain America: The Winter Soldier).

In the scene we watched being filmed, Logan hangs onto the top of a snowplow being driven by Yukio, played by Rila Fukushima. As the snowplow races down the street, a dozen angry ninjas chase it while another dozen descend from the village roofs overhead. The snowplow then spins out of control as Wolverine hangs on for dear life. As exciting as it is to be a fly on the wall while watching filming, it is also an undeniably slow and repetitive process. We watched Hugh Jackman hang onto the roof as it spun around again. And again. And again. That being said, the other press and I were happy true believers watching it be filmed.

Images of other parts coming soon...
