Hugh Jackman Talks About the Time Travel Aspects of Days of Future Past 0


One of the more fun aspects of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is the time travel, where an alternate future version of Wolverine will be coming back to the past in order to provide a warning to the younger versions of Professor X and Magneto and probably a plea to get the two mutants to work together again, which isn’t going to be easy due to the divide that has formed between Xavier and Erik (played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively) not to mention the fact that Wolverine hates Magneto’s guts.

“It’s fair to say we don’t get on that well,” Jackman told The Daily Beast. “I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that.”

As for the film as a whole, Jackman is predictably effusive, describing it as the best installment of the series to date.

“I think some people are saying, ‘Ah, this just sounds like an excuse to get all these actors together and make an Avengers-style movie,’ but the truth is that it’s a great script and Bryan [Singer] is very ambitious to make the best movie of them all.

“He’s got the biggest cast, the biggest budget, and he started it all, so it’s his legacy. He’s a fan of time-travel movies, and the detail that’s gone into it is incredible. I’m quietly confident that it will be the biggest and the best of them all.”
