Hugh Jackman details the likelihood that ‘The Wolverine’ sequel to film after ‘X-Men Apocalypse’

The X-Men franchise keeps Hugh Jackman at the nucleus and the popular character appears to be key to another X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse, as well as a sequel to the latest solo film, The Wolverine.

Talking with Collider, producer Lauren Shuler Donner set up the news that the films would shoot back-to-back and Jackman’s routine makes it a no-brainer.

“…we announced Apocalypse to come out in 2016, so that means we have to shoot next summer.  And then we’d have to shoot our new Wolverine movie either before or after that.  I think after because it will come out after.”

“I found out about [X-Men: Days of Future Past] a month before I finished The Wolverine, so I was already planning on my cheat meals. It’s much easier because it’s tough to get there, physically, but once you’re there, it’s easier to maintain it,” Jackman says of his fitness plans.

Days of Future centers on Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the “First Class” team stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.

The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing Fan.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23, 2014.
