Hugh Jackman Says ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is Like Three Movies in One
Hugh Jackman is very excited about ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ and he wants you to be excited too. And, why? Because, Hugh says you’re not just getting one movie, or two movies, but three movies for the price of one!
Jackman was at the Toronto International Film Festival at the premiere of his upcoming thriller ‘Prisoners‘ and was asked about ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ and Jackman couldn’t be any more excited when asked about the film.
Having sat at Comic-Con on that panel with that extraordinary cast, I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one. It really is going to blow people away because of the story. Bryan Singer, I think, is going to become the first director to make increasingly better movies in a franchise, I’m not sure if there’s anyone else that’s done it.
We understand the two-movies-in-one deal (what with the two ‘X-Men’ franchises combined into one movie), but we’re not sure yet what the third movie is. Another ‘Wolverine’ movie? (And, not to nitpick Mr. Jackman but there have been plenty of directors who have made increasingly better movies in a franchise. See: Francis Ford Coppola, Christopher Nolan, James Cameron, Sam Raimi, even Justin Lin…)
But, let’s not dog Hugh Jackman too much. The guy is clearly very excited about ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ and, who are we kidding?, so are we. Will Jackman’s enthusiasm bring him back to the Marvel universe for future films or will this be the last we see of Wolverine?
