Hugh Jackman Teases a Throw Down with Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past

One of the things fans were looking forward to with Bryan Singer’s original X-Men was a big screen confrontation between Magneto and Wolverine. Though we’ve seen it a few times in the series since then, there’s a unique opportunity for Hugh Jackman in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past to take on a different Magneto with Michael Fassbender in the role.

Speaking with The Daily Beast, Jackman was asked if the characters would have a fight scene, prompting this tease:

“It’s fair to say we don’t get on that well. 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.”

We do know that Magneto will have a bit of a tussle with Beast at some point in the film, as seen in these set photos, but we all want to see Wolverine and Magneto go at it again, right?

Coming to theaters on May 23, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.
