Hugh Jackman Already in Talks for X-Men: Days of Future Past

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Hugh Jackman is already in negotiations to reprise his role as the Canadian with Adamantium claws in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Jackman will get the deal he wants since he IS Wolverine, and officially sign on the film. So far the Australian actor has been in every X-Men film.

After Bryan Singer announced, through his Twitter account, that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were confirmed to reprise their roles as Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto/ Eric Lensherr along with their younger counterparts James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender (Xavier and Eric Lensherr in X Men First Class). It’s already a promising cast, Singer is reaching to several other cast members, hope they get Taylor Kitsch to reprise his role as Gambit.

X-Men Days of Future Past confirmed cast

The film is based on 1981 issue of Uncanny X-Men which came from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin. The story is set in an alternate future where mutant survivors are hunted and thrown in concentration camps, Sentinels are patrolling America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted down and killed. The present day X-Men are forced to stop a significant event from unfolding in order to keep that future from happening. 

Jackman, who recently wrapped production of director James Mangold‘s ”The Wolverine,” would join with other confirmed returning stars such as James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” opens July 18, 2014.
