Hugh Jackman is in talks to appear as well. A development that surprises exactly nobody.

Did he even have any scenes with Stewart or McKellen?
Nope. They should have had him depower Magneto, or something.
I'm assuming you're just making a little joke...that's exactly what did happen.

He also had a scene with Patrick earlier in the film. (When Logan meets Hank.)

Geez, how many of these films is this guy going to make, already?

Is he going to stop at seven?

He's trying to give Samuel L. Jackson a run for his money.

you say it like its a bad thing.

With almost every other actor playing a Superhero people start assuming they stop early on. For legitimate reasons. They get sick of it am want to move on or/and want to much money. Yet Jackman seems willing to play Wolverine as long as they want him to. Seems great to me.

Hear hear.

Count me as one of those who didn't think there was a chance of getting Jackman in the film since he has branched out into his own films with Wolverine. I couldn't imagine him coming back to an assembled cast X-Men film for anything more than a cameo. If he really does sign up well hot diggity! That's damn exciting.

He's just true to the character who also appears in nearly every title Marvel has.

Wolverine was, is, and always will be the most popular X-Men (with the exception for the brief period when he didn't exist and X-Men wasn't all that popular back then). Also, I can't speak for the comic, but the TV version of Days of Future Past features Wolverine fairly prominently in the future.

Speaking of which, there's a lot of talk of signing lots of people, but have they written a script yet? It seems to me the key question is who the time traveler is going to be.

I guess in our discussion we've been glad to see who's coming back that we have neglected to talk about this.

Clearly it's either Cable or Bishop...both? Which also means casting for new faces of popular characters.

Bishop=Idris Elba (pull the ole Chris Evans route)
Cable=Dwayne Johnson

Could also be Kitty Pryde. If that's the case, they have to decide whether to bring back Ellen Page or go down a different route.

However, I think both suggested actors would be great. If they went with Bishop, Idris Elba would be an awesome choice.

That's even assuming they follow the original that closely. For all we know, the structure and set-up will be completely different.

While true, I think there are a few elements that are necessary that, without them, it's not the same story it's just the same name. The post-apocalyptic future and the timetraveler are the two elements.

Plus, let's face it, wouldn't hurt film PR to cast a Cable/Elba. (Woah...that's almost a palindrome/anagram). While we're at it, throw in Theron too. And maybe Rapace as Pryde.

Oh, no. No no no no no. I would never want to see The Rock as Cable. Jesus.

I actually think Stephen Lang would be an excellent Cable.

(In case it's not obvious, Cable is my all-time favorite comic book character.)
