Fans of superhero movies know that a lot of the success of the genre can be traced back to Bryan Singer’s 2000 movie X-Men and fans of that movie and its sequel should be excited for the director’s return with X-Men: Days of Future Past, which also brings back Hugh Jackman as Wolverine less than a year after the appropriately-titled solo movie The Wolverine.
It’s been fourteen years since Jackman first took on the role and this time, his consciousness from the near future has been transplanted into the Wolverine of 1973 to team with the younger Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicolas Hoult) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from killing Peter Dinklage’s Bolivar Trask, the inventor of the deadly Sentinel robots that have been killing mutants in the future. (If you’ve read the original Claremont-Byrne comic on which the movie is loosely based, that will require no further explanation.)
Although ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype spoke with Jackman twice last year, once for The Wolverine and once for Prisoners, it’s always fun to talk to him about Wolverine due to his genuine enthusiasm for the character even after paying him seven times.
