Hugh Jackman Says DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Will Be The X-Men's THE AVENGERS

Hugh Jackman is clearly confident about Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past as he believes that the movie, "will be, for X-Men, like The Avengers." The actor also shares his thoughts on returning to the role of Logan so soon after The Wolverine.


In an interview with Empire Magazine, Hugh Jackman has once again expressed his excitement about starring in X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, he clearly has high hopes for the movie which has recently been surrounded in a little controversy as a result of 20th Century Fox's decision to introduce Quicksilver ahead of Joss Whedon's sequel to The Avengers. Talking of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, it was the first instalment of that Marvel Studios franchise which Jackman compared the "inbetweequel" to. "I thought, I wonder if they'll want me to cameo again?" he said of first hearing about the movie. However, after being sent an 8-page synopsis of the story, he was extremely impressed with both the story and his role in it. "I was like, 'Okay, this is a slam-dunk idea. This, actually, is phenomenal. I think this will be, for X-Men, like The Avengers.' And I think it is..." As for how he feels about reprising the role of Wolverine so soon after wrapping up work on latest solo outing, he added: "I was a little frustrated because I was nearing the end of a 12-to-18 month physical odyssey and getting ready to have Christmas off - and lasagnes. And I'm, unfortunately, not as young as I was, so I have to start earlier and go for longer. So I was like, Okay, we gotta keep going.' But I'm really excited about it, and I never thought in a million years I would play one character in seven movies." Now that's dedication!






Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
