Bryan Singer Says Wolverine Will Not Appear in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

You know it is a slow day when a cabbie’s FaceBook status sparks rumors that Hugh Jackman, currently beefing up for the second Wolverine flick, will also appear in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. We did not report on that little bit of “news” because, well, it did not have a ton of merit. The rumors went something like, ‘Hugh Jackman was near the set of First Class, which means he might be in the film.’ So, when The Geek Files (via CBM) spoke with producer Bryan Singer about Jackman’s possible role in First Class, we got a definite answer that should quiet that terrible rumor.

“He’s not in the movie,” Singer said. “He’s in the Wolverine movies.” A Fox spokesperson also added that First Class has not even started filming in Georgia. All of this lends itself to the thought that Jackman visited the set, but did not do much else. I have heard nothing but backlash to the possibility of Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine in First Class. What do you think? Would Jackman’s involvement spark your interest in the film or do you want him to stay away from this?

    Wolverine or not this still has train wreck written all over it. I would be thrilled to be proven wrong but it just seems such a patchwork of established Xmen stories. I’m not sure even Hugh Jackman could save it at this point.

    “He’s not in the movie,” Singer said. “He’s in the Wolverine movies.”

    Er, he was also in the X-Men movies that you made Mr Singer!

    I call false on the Singer interview

      What he means is that from this point on he has his own series – the Wolverine movies – and due to continuity issues won’t be appearing in First Class as it is a prequel to X-Men and X2.

    I couldn’t bear watching Wolverine Origins, that film causes diseases.

    First Class is chasing the same route, possibly too many characters, it’s a busload full of kittens about to drive the side off a cliff.

    But Aronofsky + Jackman could topple The Dark Knight. Come on, both men also made a little masterpiece called The Fountain. That is if Fox doesn’t fuck the movie.

    This is going to fail. LOL! No one or anything can save this. Its all wrong and its a pity, they have some good actors too. I just know the whole history is made up and the whole timeline is messed up too. LOL!

    I love Hugh, but he’s about 2 feet too tall and not nearly hairy enough to play Wolverine.

    Did you guys forget who is directing this movie, Matthew Vaughn, made a little indie film last year called Kick-ass, he is easily the best director to do one of this movies

      And Leonardo Da vinci could sell me art supplies but that doesn’t mean I’ll paint a picture that’ll be worth 40 million in 200 years. Meh!

        Story? Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (ANDROMEDA for 5 years, Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Fringe) and Jane Goldman (KICK-ASS) have screenplay credits. More than likely, Goldman is a major part of this and I know Stentz and Miller did a lot of work on it.

        Vaughn likely wouldn’t jump on this film if he didn’t like the script.
