After a buzz of speculation of classic X-appearances would happen in the next X-Men film helmed by Bryan Singer, it's been officially confirmed that Hollywood star Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role once more as Wolverine in the next X-Flick, X-Men: Days of Future Past! Based on the classic 80's storyline by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, the new X-Flick is a sequel to the 2011 hit X-Men: First Class, and sees the mutants time-hopping to a dystopian future featuring their older selves!
Singer, who was the X-Men and X2 director, returns to the franchise he started, and made the announcement via his official Twitter, and will see the Australian actor back in action as the feral mutant. Going back into action as Logan (with next year's The Wolverine marking his sixth time), Jackman will be alongside other X-Men film alum, namely James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender who return as Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr, and also Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen, who also reprise their roles as the older Professor X and Magneto!

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for a July 18, 2014 release!
