Hugh Jackman teases X-Men reunion on Days Of Future Past

Expect some familiar faces

Ever since Brian Singer picked up the reins on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, we’ve heard whispers and rumours concerning which of his original X-Men he might be able to talk into reappearing.

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are in place to reappear, while Hugh Jackman has already confirmed he’s a definite. However, according to Jackman, we might be in for much more than that…

“You wouldn’t have enough room on the page after you’ve listed them all,” revealed Jackman. “Every other actor who’s ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it. There’s an element of time travel and, naturally, it will be action-packed.”

The new film will jump between two moments in time, with part of it set in the same sort of ballpark as X-Men: First Class, while the other will jump forward to a dystopian future in which mutants have been imprisoned in concentration camps. Hence the door is left wide open for plenty of cameos from the older incarnations of our favourite mutants.

As well as assorted members of the old guard, the film will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, and will open in the UK on 18 July 2014. We can hardly wait…

Who would you most like to see return? Tell us, below!

      "Every other actor who’s ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it." Does this mean we'll get Nic Cage too? Sign me up!

      Hmm, you know what would be interesting - with the time-travel element could they revisit one of the scenes from any of the original trilogy (ideally the 3rd), film it the same but have something change in it that would lead to the future being altered - that way, it would clear the way for X-Men 4 without half the team being dead

      i've got to say, i'm starting to really look forward to this .Hollywood never used to be comfortable with the loose cross continuity of comic books, something the justice League movie seems to already be in trouble with, but with Disneys avengers universe, and now this continuity between both movie incarnations of the xmen hopefully signals a breath of fresh air and originality in the studio bolard rooms. or it might be sh*t.

      I really have a bad feeling about this.
