Hugh Jackman: "X-MEN: DOFP Is The Biggest Movie Fox Has Made Outside Of AVATAR"

Hugh Jackman shares his thoughts on the scope of X-Men: Days of Future Past and playing Wolverine in both the past and future, while director Bryan Singer reveals a very cool sounding scene which takes place between Logan and Michael Fassbender's Magneto. Check it out!


"I thought that was it," Hugh Jackman told Empire Magazine when asked about how he felt to - seemingly - leave the X-Men franchise behind with Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006. "There was already talk about doing a younger version, and I was certainly talking about Wolverine and trying to drum up interest in that. I thought the idea of another X-Men movie was done, so this was a surprise. And a welcome one." As for his thoughts on once again working with Bryan Singer and the scope of the movie, the Australian actor added, "Bryan has such an incredible brain. This is certainly the biggest movie Fox has made outside of Avatar, so there's pressure from all angles. But he's buzzing, and he's confident. He's gone deeper emotionally, and it's a great ensemble piece."

Asked to comment on where we pick up with Logan in X-Men: Days of Future Past and how he feels to be sent back in time, Jackman said, "He's a warrior and he can't hide from that anymore, even if the consequences are going to be messy and painful. If there's an era for Wolverine, its the 70s. The hair, the mutton chops, you can smoke cigars everywhere...everything about Wolverine seems more at home in the 70s." Finally, director Bryan Singer offered up some details on a scene which may or may not make it into the movie, but if it doesn't, here's hoping that it's a deleted scene on the Blu-ray! " There's a line that Fassbender says that may make it. He says to Wolverine, 'You spend the next 50 years trying to bring me down?' Wolverine says, 'Pretty much.' Magneto says, 'How did that go for you...'"
