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

Jackman will also be starring as Wolverine in James Mangold's The Wolverine on July 26, 2013.
