Hugh Jackman will most-likely reprise his Wolverine role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past as well. The one lingering question is whether Ellen Page will reprise her role as Kitty Pryde from X-Men: The Last Stand.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past‘s plot synopsis: based on Days of Future Past storyline from 1981?s Uncanny X-Men, “The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men.”
