And on the Big Screen
One of the most versatile actors of our time is going from Jean Valjean to the baddest superhero on the screen. Hugh Jackman has hinted at how ''action-packed'' 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' will be as former stars including Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart return to join newcomers in the exciting feature.
The 44-year-old actor - who plays Wolverine in the mutant superhero franchise - admits he can't wait to return to his role alongside stars such as Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Sir Patrick Stewart (Professor Charles Xavier) as well as newcomers to the cast, to form an exciting blockbuster.
He told the MailOnline: ''You wouldn't have enough room on the page after you've listed all [the stars]. Every other actor who's ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it. There's an element of time travel and, naturally, it will be action-packed.''
The story will switch between two moments of time throughout the film, with some of the scenes set in the same timeline as 'X-Men: First Class' and featuring younger Magneto and Xavier Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, while the rest will show the mutants trapped in future concentration camps.
