Fans Worried Over Hugh Jackman's 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' Return


We'd have thought that the news that Hugh Jackman was in talks for a role in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' would make fans pretty happy, but apparently some have their doubts over whether the star's return is a good thing.

Edward Douglas of told MTV News: "Who wouldn't be excited by having Wolverine in an X-Men movie, since he's such a big part of the team — but I also wonder how big a part he might actually play," adding: "Clearly, Fox wants to shift the focus as well as make these movies cheaper, so I don't think Wolverine will be the primary focus."

The doubts are understandable - after all with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen returning alongside James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, there are now two Magnetos and Professor Xs, without even mentioning the high calibre of stars also involved in the movie, including Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, resulting in a movie that will be jam packed with stars striving for screen time.

Brett White, of was sceptical, telling MTV: "I think it's entirely possible for [Wolverine] to distract from the overall story, if they make this a Wolverine and the X-Men film like the previous trilogy was.

He added: "But if the film follows the original 'Days of Future Past' comic book's structure, with a team of future X-Men — Stewart, McKellen and Jackman — working in concert with the 'First Class' team, then I think that'll work and keep the 'First Class' characters in the forefront, where they belong."

Jackman is the only actor to appear in every one of the five  'X-Men' films to date, with an uncredited cameo in 'First Class' and his own spin-off 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' being the two films outside the original trilogy so far.

The new movie 'Wolverine' and 'Days of Future Past' should now make it a magnificent seven for the 'Les Miserables' actor.
