UPDATE: Two familiar faces join Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past

UPDATE: Just yesterday I posted about Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart rejoining the X-Men.  Today, The Hollywood Reporter says that Hugh Jackman may also join the party as, of course, Wolverine.  This makes perfect sense, as Wolverine is an integral part of the story told in the comic books.  I hope this is legit, but we'll wait for an official announcement.  

Director Bryan Singer, has made a pretty cool announcement via Twitter. Check it out!

If you are a fan of the original X-Men trilogy, this will mean a lot to you. Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are rejoining the superhero franchise.  As Magneto and Professor X respectively.  This time around, it's in the newly rebooted sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  I am so excited about this news.  Being familiar with the story behind 'Days of Future Past', I knew there should be cameos from older characters we've already seen in the X-Men film universe.  Add to this the two clever cameos in X-Men: First Class, and you can see where today's news makes perfect sense.

Also important to note, a few of our favorites from X-Men: First Class will be returning as well.  James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult are all back for more action in the sequel.  One name you wont see in the tweet below?... January Jones.  Thank God.  She was the only bad casting choice in my opinion and was basically a drone.  Check out the tweet below.  This X-Men fan is very excited!
