Is Hugh Jackman in Days of Future Past?
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
You know I was pretty hum-ho about this next X-men film for a while right? I constantly remind everyone that I think First Class was overrated, and the prior 2 films in the X-universe were watchable but not re-watchable. The next film is in the franchise, Days of Future Past, has potential to shape into something that seems comparable to The Avengers in scope, size, and downright awesomeness. We already heard that Matthew Vaughn won’t be directing the film and instead Bryan Singer will be directing instead. Coincidentally this was an announced idea by producer Lauren Schuler Donnor ages ago. We learned yesterday that X-alum’s Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen have both signed to reprise roles in the film as well, but the latest news is making the cast of this film seem downright uncanny:
Now I love the idea of getting Jackman back. He’s been the anchor of the X-franchise since the first film, and Bryan Singer was right to cast him as Wolverine at the last minute. He’s been a runaway success in the role and as a result they couldn’t even make First Class without at least a cameo from the guy. I hope they take the idea a step further and bring in more characters. Hell, bring everyone back for another movie. If they bring back Anna Paquin as well as figure out a way to get James Marsden, Liev Schrieber, and Famke Jannsen in there and I might have trouble forming sentences due to nerd-gasms.
Now I’m wondering where this film lies as far as Donnor’s previous statements when talking about an X4. In my eyes I kinda see this next movie as an “X4/First Class 2″ hybrid but I clearly remember the following statement from Donnor:
Now where on earth does this leave us? Was First Class the X4 she was talking about? Is Days of Future Past X5, cus if so then I kinda understand her statement but if not does this mean that there are still more X-movies currently in active development beyond “Days of Future Past”? These are the questions, we want answers.
