James McAvoy Reveals More X-MEN: DOFP Details; Wolverine The One Who Travels Back In Time?
In the comic book version of X-Men: Days of Future Past, it was Kitty Pryde who travelled back in time. However, it now appears as if it will be Hugh Jackman's Wolverine who takes on that role in the Bryan Singer helmed movie. Read on for details!
"I'm excited about the 70s," James McAvoy told Empire Magazine in a recent interview (which took place before he headed to Montreal to shoot the "inbetweequel") when asked what he's most looking forward to about working on the Bryan Singer helmed follow-up to X-Men: First Class. "I'm excited about my costumes, which are fucking awesome. He's on his way to becoming Patrick Stewart, but he's not quite there yet. The '70s costumes are hilarious , they're quite psychedelic, which is great." Their chat then turned to the plot of the movie and the magazine seemed to indicate that Wolverine will travel back either with or instead of Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde. "Hugh's got a big part," the Scottish actor teased. "You throw Hugh Jackman in there and he comes with so much rage. I'm really looking forward to working with him. He'd better fucking bring it. I'm excited to work with McKellen to." Talking of McKellen, for anyone worried that the relationship between Magneto and Professor Xavier will be put on the back burner in the movie, McAvoy said they needn't worry. "It's working off what we set up in the first 'new' one. The relationship between Charles and Erik is being explored in the future and in the past."
