Phil Posted December 19, 2012 Share Posted December 19, 2012 http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/12/19/hugh-jackman-x-men-days-future-past/ A few weeks ago, director Bryan Singer confirmed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellanwould be returning to the X-Men series in the next installment, Days of Future Past, which features a time travel plotline guaranteed to make the franchise?s already-tangled continuity totally not confusing whatsoever. Now, Singer has announced via tweet that an even bigger X-Men power player will join the Future Past squad. ?I would officially like to welcome@RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited! More to come?? said Singer.It?s not clear just how involved Jackman will be in the prequel-sequel. He had in First Class ? which ? and given that Jackman has a full-fledged Wolverine solo movie in 2013, it?s easy money that he?ll just have a supporting role in Days of Future Past. (My Theory: He?ll pop up in a post-apocalyptic future, which will actually be the present, and he?ll be around just long enough for something like this to happen.) If you?re interested, Singer has been tweeting various Future Past-related updates, including a location-scouting trip of Washington, D.C., with screenwriter Simon Kinberg and a meeting with his production designer. Based on those tweets, we can confirm that the movie involves mountains and Abraham Lincoln. -- This has the potential to blow all the prior X-films out of the water. Days of Future past is far and away one of the strongest, and most important story lines Chris Claremont ever wrote. Here's to hoping for strong castings for Bischop and Cable, the latter of whom is my second favorite Marvel character of all-time behind Deadpool.
