Hugh Jackman has teased that he and Michael Fassbender’s young Magneto could be engaged in some fighting for Bryan Singer’s upcoming time travel-focused “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Jackman tells The Daily Beast:
“It’s fair to say we don’t get on that well. I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that.”
Jackman also dismisses claims that the film is just Fox’s attempt to do what Marvel did with “The Avengers” (ie. combine franchises for a big payday):
“I think some people are saying, ‘Ah, this just sounds like an excuse to get all these actors together and make an Avengers-style movie,’ but the truth is that it’s a great script and (director) Bryan (Singer) is very ambitious to make the best movie of them all.
He’s got the biggest cast, the biggest budget, and he started it all, so it’s his legacy. He’s a fan of time-travel movies, and the detail that’s gone into it is incredible. I’m quietly confident that it will be the biggest and the best of them all.
When I sat there on that panel at Comic Con, and looked down at all the actors, you think, ‘This might be one of the best ensembles ever assembled’… Apart from Movie 43.”
