Hugh Jackman portrayed Wolverine in the first three 'X-Men' films as well as one spin-off and will already reprise the role in another 2013 spin-off.
The pieces are falling into place, forming what may eventually become an all-out reunion for Bryan Singer and the casts of both the X-Men trilogy and its prequel, X-Men: First Class. We’ve known the potential of returning appearances of familiar characters since Singer confirmed the film’s title, X-Men: Days of Future Past, based on the title of the famous time-travel story arc from Marvel Comics, but it wasn’t until yesterday did we learn it’s actually happening.
Bryan Singer – taking over the director’s seat from Matthew Vaughn who may or may not be directing Star Wars Episode 7 – happily confirmed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will be back for the next X-Men team-up and as we suspected, they will likely be joined by franchise star Hugh Jackman.
According to THR, Jackman is currently in negotiations with Fox to return for what will be his sixth portrayal of the adamantium-laced feral mutant (the seventh being a cameo in X-Men: First Class). This would further solidify his status as the actor who holds the record for playing the same superhero character in the most films.
