Of course, it was easy then for me to say yesterday, after the Stewart and McKellen casting announcements, that Jackman would sign up as well. And he will.Skip to next paragraph
Screen Rant had a humble start back in 2003 as a place to rant about some of the dumber stuff related to the movie industry. Since then, the site has grown to cover more and more TV and movie news (and not just the dumb stuff) along with sometimes controversial movie reviews. The goal at Screen Rant is to cover stories and review movies from a middle ground/average person perspective.

This raises two interesting questions:
- With headliners from the X-Men trilogy coming aboard, will that make it easier to bring back the others? Do they want to for this story?
- How will this affect The Wolverine?
You can count on Twentieth Century Fox and Mark Millar – their newly hired creative consultant on their Marvel movies – to find a way to work something into The Wolverine to bridge the gap between it and what’s coming up next. There’s absolutely no way they wouldn’t take advantage of this opportunity. Singer and Fox have big ambitions, and The Wolverine - which interestingly takes place after the trilogy – is step one of their plans, no matter how standalone Jackman and director James Mangold aim for it to be. Perhaps this lends more credence to the rumors that Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) will cameo in The Wolverine and that she’ll return for Days of Future Past.
Bryan Singer will direct X-Men: Days of Future Past with returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, who could be joined by the return of Hugh Jackman, Famke Janssen, Anna Paquin, James Marsden, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore. Stay tuned!
