It’s Official: Hugh Jackman Will Be Back to Snark at Professor X and Magneto in Days of Future Past

…if you consider director Bryan Singer‘s Twitter an “official” source. I used to, considering he’s the director and he should know about these things, but after his Twitter announcement that Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart had signed on turned out to be a bit premature, I’m not sure whether I can trust him anymore.
“I would officially like to welcome @RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited! More to come…”
One wonders if the “More to come…” might refer to more of the original X-Men cast—possibly Halle Berry and/or James Marsden, whose return has been rumored for a while now—coming back as well.
There’s been no indication as of yet as to how big a role Wolverine will play in Days of Future Past; he was pretty important in the comic arc from which the movie takes its name, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
What do you think? Excited about Wolverine coming back? Worried about how X-Men: Days of Future Past has started to look a bit bloated, casting-wise? Sick of all the X-Men stuff after how convoluted the franchise has gotten in recent years? Never cared about the X-Men in the first place? Hungry for a sandwich?
At least two of those apply to me.
