It appears that upcoming prequel-sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature the claws and fury belonging to the one and only Wolverine!
A few weeks after it was reported that actor, Hugh Jackman was in talks to yet again reprise his role as the adamantium-braced, buff beserker, director, Bryan Singer has just given the official stamp on that bit of news by way of tweet.
Of course, Jackman's Wolverine is already bracing for a return to theaters everywhere on July 26, 2013 when the character's second solo shot, The Wolverine slices and dices the baddies of Japan. Prospectively, Wolverine's appearance in Days will mark (counting the cameo in X-Men: First Class,) the seventh appearance of Jackman's rendition of the now-iconic antisocial hero.
With Jackman's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just secured last week, you can bet that his addition to the cast will bring some new box-office pull to the time-bending sequel to a low key franchise relaunch previously lacking bankable stars. Additionally, more pull will come with a post-Hunger Games Jennifer Lawrence returning as Mystique, plus Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart returning as the older counterparts of Magneto and Charles Xavier.
X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters to maim massive mutant-hunting Sentinels from the future on July 18, 2014.
