Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role of Wolverine in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The Australian actor is currently in talks to star in director Bryan Singer's sequel to X-Men: First Class, which was a prequel to the trilogy of X-Men films that featured Jackman as Wolverine.

Days of Future Past is based on Chris Claremont's 1981 storyline that switches between the 'present day' and an alternate future in which mutants are held in internment camps.

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen have already signed up to reprise their respective roles of Professor X and Magneto and producers are desperate to add Jackman to the cast.

X-Men fans will certainly see Jackman playing Wolverine as he will be reprising the role in 2013's The Wolverine.
