Hugh Jackman returns as Wolverine

Yes!!!!  Two more Wolverine movies
  • "The Wolverine" due out in 2013.
  • Jackman is in negotiations for "X-men: Days of Future Past" due in 2014.

Life is good.

With modern special effects the movie world entered the age of the Superhero.  I am in heaven with multiple Marvel and DC films over the last few years. . . . and more is coming.

Hugh Jackman may rejoin original trilogy stars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in Bryan Singer's nex X-Men film due out in 2014.  The movie also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

Director Bryan Singer continues to merge past and present X-Men actors for Fox’s Days of Future Past.

Sources confirm that Hugh Jackman is in negotiations to reprise his Wolverine role in the movie, which is ostensibly a sequel to X-Men: First Class but will prominently feature actors from the first X-Men trilogy (the first two of which Singer directed).

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Trailer

Singer announced Monday that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen -- who portrayed X-Men founder Professor Charles Xavier and renegade mutant leader Magneto, respectively, in the original X-Men movies -- are joining First Class actors James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult says The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

Seeds of a tie-in between the trilogies were sown when Jackman memorably cameoed as Wolverine in First Class. The fanboy world began speculating about Jackman's possible return once news broke that Stewart and McKellen were returning. Jackman recently wrapped production on The Wolverine, a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The actor is about to open Les Miserables, which is generating massive amounts of Oscar talk.

Ian McKellen On Playing Magneto In 'X-Men: Days of Future Past': 'What A Gas!'

Bryan Singer announced that Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart will both reprise their roles as, respectively, Magneto and Professor X in the next X-Men movie, "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

In an interview Sir Ian spoke about another one of his iconic roles, Gandalf in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," (the full conversation will publish closer to the release of "The Hobbit"), but McKellen did comment on his return to the X-Men universe and his opinions on Michael Fassbender as Magneto.

Bryan Singer announced that you're playing Magneto again. Is that something you've been wanting to do? This will be your fourth movie with Bryan Singer, did that help persuade you?

What a gas! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing "Waiting for Godot" throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we've stayed in touch. We can't believe it [laughs]. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy's parts, but -- no, no -- we're back. We'll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do. But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan to be doing it -- with all the success he's had in the meantime -- it's wonderful. Wonderful.

What did you think of Michael Fassbender as Magneto in "X-Men: First Class"?

Yeah! I thought he was exactly that: first class. Excellent.

You never thought, Hey, I've got my eye on you. That's my part.

[Laughs] No. No. I thought he was better than me. But, we weren't quite playing the same character because he was so much younger than me. And the scope of Magneto, one day a Jewish actor will play it. Clearly, he's Jewish. We first meet him in at Auschwitz and there's scope for all sorts of people to pay Magneto. But, I was just the lucky guy who got to play him first.

Wolverine vs Sentinel 

Many X-Men fans were badly disappointed at the the third film. 
We wanted so much to see the Sentinels, but we only
got a short opening scene in the movie.
