On December 18th, Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced via Twitter that actor Hugh Jackman was officially on board to reprise the role of Wolverine for the next X-Men movie from FOX. And although confirming the actor's return to the role that made him famous with comic fans all over the world i a big step, it still did not explain the extent of his role in the film. Yesterday, however, we were given a bit more insight into just how crucial Jackman will be to the film's plot by the actor himself.
In his tweet, Jackman indicates that he will be working with the "new cast" for more than "four hours," and if you've read the Days of Future Past story arc, or WOLVERINE: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST prelude, you know that the character had a significant role in both. It will certainly be interesting to see the extent of the role that the actor will play, and just how Singer plans to integrate this story into the current X-Men movie universe. What do you think of the news? Would you like to see Wolverine in the Days of Future Past movie? Do you think he should play a significant role in the upcoming film?
