Not content with just, like, making a movie with Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, director Bryan Singer apparently wants to bring his old buddy Wolverine back into the mix, meaning that Hugh Jackman is reportedly set for a cameo in upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Jackman did pop up, of course, in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, though only so cinema-goers could turn to one another and exclaim: “Whaaaat? I wasn’t expecting that!” Presumably that’s what Singer wants to do with Hugh Jackman here, too – unless he’s eyeing the Les Miserables star for a full-on part. “Whaaaat? I wasn’t expecting that!”
The story – set to confuse the minds of synopsis readers everywhere – will take place between two distinct periods of time. One of these time periods is a dystopian future where Mutants are considered disgusting and dangerous and are locked up in camps. The other time period – the present – follows the younger X-Men as go about trying to change the course of future. This presumably includes wacky moments like Wolverine’s mother falling in love with him, and Magneto trying to find a date for “The Fish Under The Sea Dance.” Hey, it could happen.
X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theatres 18th July 2014.
