Jackman, who appeared in the first three X-Men movies and spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine, recently finished filming The Wolverine for release next July.

Director Bryan Singer confirmed on Twitter earlier this week that Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart will reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X in Days of Future Past.


Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, who played younger versions of the characters in X-Men: First Class, are also attached to appear in the new movie, along with Nicholas Hoult as Beast/Hank McCoy and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be based on Chris Claremont's Uncanny X-Men storyline.

Production is due to start in January 2013, with a release date pencilled in for July 18, 2014.
