The Kidd here...
With Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen agreeing to reprise their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, it was only a matter of time before Hugh Jackman was brought back into the group fold again, too.
Hugh Jackman is in talks for Wolverine to be a part of Bryan Singer's return to the X-Men Movie Universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter, further tying the mutants of old and new together in what sure looks like one time-bending epic heading our way.
Jackman easily turned in one of the greatest cameos of all-time for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, and considering the amount of franchise weight Jackman has been carrying for Wolverine and the X-Men between the first trilogy of films and his solo Wolverine offshoots, his participation here is a no-brainer. It's just going to be a question of how big of a role will he play in DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.
He exists in both timelines of the X-Men movies, so it's not out of the question for him to operate independently in both the dystopian future filled with Stewart and McKellen as well as the past occupied by McAvoy and Fassbender, and doing so might just ratchet DOFP up to a new level of awesome. Let's just say there a wealth of possibilities as to how Singer can play this, but getting both eras of X-Men together into one movie is easily something to get a whole lot of excited about.
