Hugh Jackman May Join X-Men: Days Of Future’s Past

Well now it seems like X-Men: Days of Future’s Past is becoming the biggest movie the franchise has ever attempted. News is today that Hugh Jackman is now in talks to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s follow-up to 2011’s X-Men: First Class. Jackman had a small (and hilarious) cameo in the movie and looks to be ready to join the X-team once again.

Filming is already done on The Wolverine which will see Jackman’s Logan make his way to Japan and has some quality beat em up time with the likes of Viper and Silver Samurai. Oddly enough the Wolverine/Japan storyline was written by Chris Claremont, who is the well at which the X-Men movie franchise drinks from. Not only is The Wolverine and Days of Future’s Past based on his comics but X2 is loosely based off of his graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills. 

Yesterday came the news that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan were returning as Professor X and Magneto, now it seems like Days of Future’s Past is more than just a follow-up to First Class but a full blown prequel/sequel to every X movie out there.

The Wolverine releases on July 26, 2013 and X-Men: Days of Future’s Past will arrive on July 18, 2014.
