Jackman recently wrapped filming on next year’s The Wolverine. If he appears in Days, this will be his seventh appearance as Wolverine. The film would reunite Jackman with Bryan Singer, who directed him in X-Men and X2: X-Men United.

Days of the Future Past was a story published in the pages of Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 in 1981. Written by Chris Claremont and pencilled by John Byrne, it gave readers a look at an alternate future where mutants are hunted and imprisoned in camps. The older Kitty Pryde of this dystopian future transfers her consciousness into the mind of her younger self, so that she and the X-Men can prevent this reality from ever existing.
