According to The Global Dispatch on Jan. 26, Hugh Jackman will be starring in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and had discussed his future with Singer, the "X-Men" cast of characters, and his contract. A lot were under the impression that Jackman was under contract with Singer to continuously play the Wolverine character, but Jackman stated that it was complete "bulls**t".
“Yeah, because obviously it is bull***t. It was the National Enquirer. I couldn't believe anyone picked that up. Apart from the first movie, for which I had to sign a two-picture deal, I've never done more than one at a time".
At this point, it doesn't matter much to Jackman what happens and feels he can do pretty much what he would like when it comes to moving on in his career. There was a point in his life where he was just trying to survive to pay the rent and now is indeed considered lucky to be where he is today. He even considers such luck was brought to him with the opportunity to play such an iconic character.
“I’m someone who always tries to remember how lucky he is. And even if it’s only Wolverine, it’s pretty good".
He further discusses "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and had declared it a great movie and people should be surprised of its outcome. He gave great accolades to Singer and with the amount of time such as 14 years having passed, it's no wonder Jackman has achieved great objectives in his career.
“It’s always special for me working with Bryan on this character. He gave me that break, he gave me that character, and I can’t believe, 14 years later, we’re working on it again.
“He’s a great friend, and he’s a very smart man. I can tell you right now, he has made a great movie. I don’t know if it’s going to surprise people but I think people are really going to like it".
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is scheduled to be released May 23.
