Hugh Jackman thought the franchise would end at 'X-Men: The Last Stand'

According to Flickering Myth on Jan. 3, Hugh Jackman admitted to thinking that "X-Men: The Last Stand" would be the final film of the franchise. He then moved on with the stand alone "Wolverine" films and did not expect anything else from director Bryan Singer.

"I thought that was it. There was already talk about doing a younger version and I was certainly talking about Wolverine and trying to drum up interest in that. I thought the idea of another X-Men movie was done so this was a surprise. And a welcome one".

Considering that Singer has created success and is continuing to move forward with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Jackman did give high accolades to Singer's amazing intelligence.

"Bryan has such an incredible brain. This is certainly the biggest movie Fox has made outside of Avatar so there's pressure from all angles. But he's buzzing, and he's confident. He's gone deeper emotionally and it's a great ensemble cast".

The synopsis entails a troubling future for the X-Men and mutants worldwide as they are being obliterated by Trask Industries robotic Sentinels. Their only hope is to send Logan back in time to encounter the previous younger versions of the X-Men team to perhaps alter the outcome of mutant-kind.

Beyond that, Singer will also be directing "X-Men: Apocalypse" that will feature a highly powerful and oldest mutant on Earth to be the main villain.


"X-Men: Days of future Past" is scheduled to be released on May 23.
