The 44-year-old actor Hugh Jackman was just confirmed to be returning for the X-Men sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past as his famed character Wolverine! The news came straight from director Bryan Singer‘s Twitter account. “I would officially like to welcome @RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited! More to come…” Bryan tweeted that same day.
Was there ever really any doubt? At least now it’s confirmed. There’s just no way I could have pictured another Wolverine playing the part. Maybe if they were to portray him as a child like in the Wolverine Origins movie. However, that’s clearly not what this sequel will be about given Jackman’s cameo in X-Men: First Class.
Hopefully this next installment is as good as the last. Good luck guys!
