Now that Bryan Singer is directing “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and bringing some old friends with him like Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen who portrayed X-Men founder Professor Charles Xavier and mutant leader Magneto, respectively, in the original X-Men movies.
It looks like he’s got another friend coming if all goes well.
Sources at The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that Hugh Jackman is in negotiations to reprise his Wolverine role in the sequel to “X-Men: First Class,” and as you recall Jackman had a cameo in the prequel. James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are also set to return for the sequel.
Days of Future Past is a classic storyline that unfolded in two issues of Marvel Comics’ Uncanny X-Men in 1981, from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin.
According to the site, the story was partially set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been penned in concentration camps, giant robots called Sentinels patrol America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted and killed. In the present day, the X-Men were forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring.
Jackman wrapped production on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
Just wondering if Singer is bringing back Rebecca Romijn and Halle Berry.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is set to be released on July 18, 2014.
