Hugh Jackman will be appearing as Wolverine once again, this time in the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer confirmed the news last night on Twitter.  Jackman, Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart will all be reprising their roles from the original X-Men movies.

However, the bigger news comes from a second tweet by Singer, which was quickly deleted.  Singer stated that Fox was re-working the script to incorporate at least three musical numbers into the film.  The radical shift was made to exploit Jackman's singing and dancing talents, which are being showcased in the upcoming movie adaptation of Les Miserables.  In Les Miserables, Jackman plays a singing and dancing Jean Valjean, a noble samurai Frenchmen who overcomes brainwashing by the Canadian government to become the leader of the French Revolution.   

According to our sources, Singer has always appreciated Jackman's musical talents and has sought to incorporate them into the X-Men movie franchise.  Singer allegedly wanted to add musical numbers to X3 and left when Fox disagreed.  Fox replaced Singer with Brett Ratner, who tried really hard to kill the X-Men movie franchise once and for all.  However, like everything else Ratner's done in life, he failed completely.

A source at Fox confirmed the news stating, "We really wanted to showcase all of Jackman's strengths in the film.  Not only can Jackman play a savage killer, he can do it with a skip to his step and a song in his heart."  The Fox source also confirmed that popular Korean rapper Psy has been assisting with chereography for the musical numbers, and released an image showing Jackman and Psy dancing together as proof.

While there's no word as to whether other former X-Men stars such as Halle Berry, James Marsden or Anna Paquin will be appearing in the film, we're almost certain that Fox will want to bring Marsden, a Broadway veteran himself, back to perform in a spirited duet with Jackman entitled "You're a Douche, Scott Summers. Now Die."
