X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
It’s only been a few days since Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart were confirmed to appear in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” but another “X-Men” alum is also rumored to show up. Fresh off his work on “The Wolverine,” Hugh Jackman is currently in negotiations to appear in the “X-Men: First Class” sequel. Jackman had a memorable cameo in “First Class” and it’s unknown whether he’ll have a larger role in “Days of Future Past.” However, considering the time-travel aspect of the original comic book storyline, it’s possible Jackman’s role will be expanded beyond a 10-second cameo.
