SDCC 2013: X-MEN DOFP Director Singer Explains Wolverine's Time Traveling
At Fox's press conference, it has been confirmed that actor Hugh Jackman's Wolverine is the one who is sent into the past by Kitty Pryde. A few details after the jump...
Fox shocked the media at their press conference when they walked out the entire main case of next summer's X-Men Days of Future Past. Everyone from Hugh Jackman to Patrick Stewart to Michael Fassbender to Jennifer Lawrence were there with everyone else who plays a major role too!
One of the biggest questions surrounding the next X-Men movie is who the time traveler is and that has now been confirmed to be Wolverine.
"Kitty is the one who sends someone back in time and so as people will see... Wolverine goes back in time," said Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg.
Director Bryan Singer went into a bit more detail regarding next summer's time traveler.
"Basically the notion is Hugh of the future is sent … his conscienceness... is sent into his younger self [and] Hugh gets to play both parts because he is ageless," Singer said.
In the comics it is Kitty who takes a trip back into the mind of her younger self but this adapted version has Wolverine and it just makes sense since he is Fox's X-Men poster boy. Now fans have to wait until the first trailer for X-Men Days of Future Past is released and should hope they'll also get a first glimpse of the Sentinels.
X-Men Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23, 2014.
