Perhaps not wanting to risk getting scooped by Bryan Singer’s Twitter feed, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Hugh Jackman is in talks to reprise his role as Wolverine in X-Men Days Of Future Past.
The news is not surprising as Hugh Jackman never seems to pass on a chance to play Wolverine. He even appeared in a very brief but hilarious scene in X-Men: First Class. Just yesterday, director Bryan Singer revealed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen from the original X-Men movies would be joining James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in X-Men Days Of Future Past.
The X-Men Days of Future Past movie is based on an early eighties storyline from Uncanny X-Men. The story involves an alternate future with giant robots called Sentinels, who hunt down and kill mutants. X-Men Days Of Future Past is set to be released on July 18, 2014.
