Bryan Singer is in production on his actor-, mutant-, and timeline-stuffed next X-Men movie — the one that we’re assuming stacks the franchise’s various chronologies on top of one another like a layered dip — and it appears that Hugh Jackman is officially in the house. Last night, the director tweeted a photo of a tall, hairy man in a leather jacket with the caption, “Fitting.”
Apropos of nothing but context clues (tall, hairy, leather, Singer’s tag) the photo is obviously Jackman-as-scowly-Wolverine, though there’s no other information about the who, what, or when of his role. He will still be joined by Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, and Shawn Ashmore; and X-Men: Days of Future Past will still come out in 2014.
One wish: There’s no plaid under that jacket.
