The new film will see Wolverine’s “consciousness” sent back in time in order to issue a warning to the Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy versions of Magneto and Xavier.

However, fans know Wolverine isn’t Magneto’s biggest fan.

“It’s fair to say we don’t get on that well,” Jackman told The Daily Beast. “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.”

Jackman offers few details but heaps praise on the film.

“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.”

Based on a popular storyline, Singer unites the First Class cast with the stars from the first trilogy.

“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.”

Directed by Singer, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in theaters on May 23, 2014.
