There have been lots of casting rumors, speculations, and even confirmations regarding X-Men: Days of Future Past – including the recently announced news that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would be returning to the X-Men franchise – and now it looks like we can add Hugh Jackman’s name to the list. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hugh is in talks to reprise Wolverine once again in Bryan Singer’s upcoming take on the famous X-Men storyline. Check out a summary of the story below:
“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. 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.
