Unlike movie-goers who went to theaters to see Man of Steel, those who go to watch The Wolverine will want to stick around for a post-credits scene. Lead actor Hugh Jackman revealed that the scene after the credits would lay the foundation for Bryan Singer’s 2014 sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“There’s a lot of great actors in it, and if you stick around to the end of the credits of The Wolverine, you’re going to get a really nice little Easter Egg for what Days of Future Past has to offer… which we can’t reveal!” he told The Buzz Today, via Digital Spy.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to feature a cast that includes Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Anna Paquin. A release date for the film has been scheduled for July 18, 2014.
For those who can’t wait to check out The Wolverine on July 25 of this year, you can watch the official video trailer below:
The anticipation for X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to be higher than ever following the conclusion of The Wolverine, so it is a brilliant move by 20th Century Fox to take advantage of that and air a sneak peek of the 2014 sequel.
