Hugh Jackman is officially in for X-Men: Days of Future Past, with more mutants still to come

X-Men: First Class lineup

This was always a bit of a given, but Hugh Jackman has formally and officially joined X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.  The actor has shown up for every movie to date in the capacity of either a cameo or a starring role, and while there's no mention as of yet just how extensive his role will be it can't be denied that he's definitely in.

This information was revealed in a tweet from director Bryan Singer, who followed the news up with the same caveat of "more to come" that we saw with the casting of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. What surely makes Logan a bit unique amongst all of the casting going on, though, is how we'll most likely see Jackman play both the younger and older versions of himself.  Past movies have never shied away from throwing some makeup on the Aussie actor to give him that youthful glow, and I imagine that X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be no different.

We'll of course be sure to update you on the full meaning of "more to come" as Singer reveals the information in advance of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST's release date of July 18th, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Do you like what Singer's doing insofar as bringing back so many stars and characters from the first three X-MEN movies, or would you have preferred that the universes be kept more separate?
