Jackman on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and Wolverine's Relationship with Magneto
While promoting his new film, Prisoners, at the Toronto Film Festival, Hugh Jackman talked more about his excitement for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and teased Wolverine's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Young Magneto. When talking to The Daily Beast about the movie, this is what he said,
"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 Bryan 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. [Laughs]"
As for Wolverine's relationship with with young Magneto, he said,
"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."
After having seen the footage from X-Men: Days of Future Past, I'm convinced that this movie will be the best X-Men film yet.
