Hugh Jackman Teases Wolverine Vs. Magneto Fight in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

The 'Wolverine' actor says his mutant character will be transported back in time and may get into a scuffle with the young Magneto when they run into each other.
Hugh Jackman gave a little more scoop on what to expect from "X-Men: Days of Future Past". When promoting his new movie "Prisoners" at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Wolverine depicter dished on in an interview with The Daily Beast what would happen to his character in the upcoming time-travelling story.

He hinted that Logan, who's clearly not a fan of Magneto as reflected in their encounter seen in the previous movies, would have a bit of a tussle with the villain when he traveled back in time. "It's fair to say we don't get on that well," he said. "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."

On the criticisms that the film was just Fox's attempt to do what Marvel did with "The Avengers", he commented, "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 [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,' " he said, adding with a laugh, "Apart from 'Movie 43'."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is set for May 23, 2014. It will see the return of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as the young Professor X and Magneto with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen portraying their older versions respectively. Jennifer Lawrence is back as Mystique, Halle Berry as Storm, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, and Anna Paquin as Rogue.
