Hugh Jackman gives commentary on 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer

According to Digital Spy on April 4, Hugh Jackman gave a brief commentary on Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" trailer. Jackman describes the future mutant environment as dystopian and things are looking rather bleak for the handful of surviving mutants left over after most of the their kind had been annihilated by the Sentinels.

It was interesting that Jackman described Wolverine being one of the remainders leftover due to being such a hardy mutant, so obviously his regenerative abilities and toughness had proved him worthy of the "survival of the fittest" theory. Jackman explains that Logan is pretty much the only one that could provide hope and qualifies for the ability to go back in time without being dealt damage to his mind due to Kitty Pryde's telepathic routine.

Also, being that patience isn't Logan's most desirable suit to mentor the young Professor Xavier, as played by James McAvoy, this proves to be not only a physical challenge to Logan, but the ability to keep a cool head in order to save the mutant race.

Jackman was also amused by encountering McAvoy being hit by a bit of nostalgia by walking with the Logan actor along the corridors that he long ago seen when he was only eight years old. Upon McAvoy's realization of his own age, Jackman realized he had just been "dated" and jokingly said, "stop right there!"

Peter Dinklage, who will be playing the role of Bolivar Trask, really impressed Bryan Singer by remembering all the dialogue in a particular speech pitching his Sentinel product. In fact, Singer never really even felt the need to do another take in that scene.

Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens in theaters come May 23.
