Hugh Jackman-
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has stated that 20th Century FOX will move forward with an upcoming X-Men: First Class and Magneto spin-off films following the expected success of this film. The question is, are you expecting to be involved in any level in the production of either film and what is the possibility of a Wolverine cameo in either film?

Liev Shreiber-
It's been told that Hugh Jackman specifically recommended you for the role of Victor Creed in this movie. From your perspective, were you always somewhat interested in receiving a role in an action adventure film of this size and will this movie influence your likelihood of taking more action roles in the future?

Will.I.Am-
You portray a very minor character from within the X-Men universe that a very small number of people are familiar with. With that being acknowledged, did you receive any special freedom in the portrayal of John Wraith or were you allowed any significant input into the look or personality of your character?

Gavin Hood-
Before X-Men Origins, you've been known traditionally for your serious drama and suspense films like Tsotsi and Rendition. After the upcoming guaranteed success of X-Men Origins, what are the chances that you will partake in more action adventure films as opposed to doing more serious work?

Default Re: Questions for the Cast & Director

FOR GAVIN HOOD: What is the main character development arc that you wanted to focus on for the character of Wolverine, and how did you bring that potrayal to the film?

FOR HUGH JACKMAN: (1) How did you balance the morality of Wolverine in portraying his animal side vs. his human side, and what do you think is Wolverine's standard of killing towards evil people vs. innocent people?
(2) If Wolverine 2 happens, what are some possible villains that you would like to see brought to the big screen?

FOR LIEV SHREIBER: What was the hardest part about bringing a villain to the big screen that had already been portrayed, or did you think of it as a blank slate?

FOR LYNN COLLINS: What was it like for you working with Hugh Jackman?

FOR WILL.I.AM.: How hard was it as an actor to portray a character that teleports?

FOR RYAN REYNOLDS: Is there any humanity to Wade Wilson or is he just bad?

FOR TAYLOR KITSCH: Do you think there is a place for this Gambit in future X-men Films?

There's a question for all 7, but if you only are going to ask a couple, I would really like the GAVIN HOOD and first HUGH JACKMAN ones asked!

Doing the same.

Surely I'd like to ask Taylor something, I just don't know yet.

EDIT:

Gavin Hood: You stated in an interview once before that you didn't want to be a slave to the previous movies. How important was it to you to follow the continuity set up by Bryan Singer regarding Logan's past, while still maintaining your own vision of the history?

Hugh Jackman 1. Did you have any input on how your hair was done in this film. Its slightly different in every film... Did you want to go for a more natural or animilistic look this time around?

Hugh Jackman 2. Are you going to persue directing, If so is there any superhero films you would like to tackle?

Hugh Jackman 3. How was the fight choreographing on you this time around. Any hardcore wire work?

Hugh Jackman 4. Possibly more into your future as an actor, do you have any interest in playing an older Wolverine in a Days of Future Past story?

Hugh Jackman 5. How was it working with Gavin Hood as the director?

Gavin Hood. Since taking on Wolverine, have you given a chance to any other Comic Book characters and stories?

Taylor Kitsch. Did you get to do your own stunts, and fighting?

Liev Shreiber. Did the prosthetics for your hands ever get in the way of your acting?

Liev Shreiber. How was it working with Hugh Jackman once again, seeing him play quite a Different character.

Lynn Collins . So how dreamy is Hugh Jackman?

Default Re: Questions for the Cast & Director

To Taylor Kitsch: Has anyone spoken to him about reprising his role of Gambit in X-Men: First Class, as that seems to be a logical place for him to turn up next. And would he be up for it?

To Gavin Hood: Other than Wolverine, which other X-Men character would you be interested in making a solo movie of?

To Gavin Hood: Was the inclusion of Cyclops influenced by the characters treatment in previous films, or was Cyclops just a character to help the story move along. (Basically why was Cyclops included in the film)

To Gavin Hood: With Fox having future plans for the X-Men franchise, was there discussion with Fox about adding certain characters or including certain events to link the X-Men universe?

To Gavin Hood: Other than a possible Wolverine sequel, what other projects do you have lined up, or are interested in?

To Will.I.Am: Will you be including any references of Wolverine in a future Black Eyed Peas or solo track?

To Hugh Jackman/Gavin Hood: Did you inform Halle Berry about the young Storm cameo? If so what was her reaction?

[Will update with more]

Taylor Kitsch:

you said in an interview that the audition process was a battle, what was your first reaction when you found out you had the role?

How do you feel about seeing your face on huge posters, toys and video games?

Hugh
What was it like popping out the claws for a 4th time? Are you having more fun now than when you first started 10 years ago? Are you still up for playing Wolverine one or two more times so that we can see some Japan and Omega Red action?

Taylor
Was it daunting to play a huge fan favorite, Gambit? What did you think was important to the character that you wanted to bring on the big screen?

Ryan
All the fanboys' cries to the Marvel gods have come to fruition! How excited were you to finally dawn the swords and attitude to become everyone's favorite Merc with the mouth? If Deadpool gets a spinoff, fingers crossed, what bad guys do you want to go up against?

Lynn
Did it hurt? When you fell from Heaven?

DO IT

To everyone
Did anybody read any fan sites like SHH! to see what the hardcore fans were saying about the trailers, pics, and plot rumors? If so, did it affect you in any way and what did you think afterwards?

Then make Ryan Reynolds say; "Chimichanga, chimichanga, chimichanga!"

Gavin Hood - Directing a superhero film is a big departure from the previous material that you have worked on. What was the experience like and is it something that you might consider continuing in the future?

Taylor Kitsch - There are a lot of things about Gambit that make him such a popular character. Whilst preparing for and performing the role, did you feel strongly about any particular aspects of the character that you thought should be portrayed on the big screen?

Taylor Kitsch: I'm a huge fan of yours, I've been for a while and I got a few questions:
Do you think Gambit will show up in any other X-Men movies? If so, would you be willing to reprise your role?
Do you think that ''they'' will give you the proper ''red on black' Gambit eyes like in the comics? I've made a few photo manipulations and they don't look silly at all.

And not X-Men related but, I read that you were initailly going to become a pro hockey player? My family is huge on hockey, my dad being a Hockey trainer and all, and I was wondering, if you didn't have the knee injury, what would be your dream team to play for? And who is your favorite player in the NHL right now?

Taylor Kitsch:

Do you have anything in common with your character?

Gambit has a strong female fanbase. How do you think would you react if you received a lot of attention from them?

If Gambit got a spin-off, are there any particular story archs you'd
like to see used?

What was the funniest thing that happened to you on the set?

Do you think we'll see Gambit in future X-Men films?

Thank you

Ryan Reynolds: Was there a time on set when you were looking at Hugh and wanted to burst out singing and dancing. Or, ask if you were in Kate & Leopold 2...? In other words, dying to break the fourth wall.

And you've said you have a despise for guns. Would you say it's a phobia? So, if you spent days just shooting carboard people who looked like clowns &/or mimes? Do you think you would get over it?

Taylor Kitsch:

1. I know you did a lot of preparation for Gambit, what was Scott Porter's role in helping you, and where did you start from there?
2. A FNL question: Are we ever going to meet Riggins' mum?
3. Describe your relationship with your co-stars on Wolverine and FNL? And whom of your co-stars have you hung out with recently?
4. Do you consider updating your official website, writing blogs and answering Q&A from fans there?

Taylor Kitsch:
1. How did they give you the news that you had been chosen to be Gambit?
2. How did you do your own previous research on the character: comics, his biography, even cartoons?
3. How would you describe Gambit for someone who doesn't know anything about him?
Thanks!
