4416 Hugh Jackman will be returning to X-Men: Days of Future Past and returning with director Bryan Singer to reprise his role as Wolverine.

In a recent interview while promoting his latest movie, Les Miserables, Hugh Jackman touches upon his friendship with Russell Crowe - who turned down Wolverine and recommended his name to Bryan Singer - and also mentions he is in talks for X-Men: Days of Future Past, joking that there will be four claws in the movie.

"There is an X-Men: First Class sequel which Bryan Singer is directing, which I think is awesome." Jackman told Access Hollywood. "It started with Bryan. I know the fans are super excited. I did a three hour three word cameo in the last one. Literally it took me three hours. And I have been talking to Bryan about doing something in this."

X-Men: Days of Future Past has a July 18, 2014 release date starring Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult
