Hugh Jackman will have "fun" with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future

Hugh Jackman has insisted that his character Wolverine will have ''fun'' with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The 44-year-old actor has revealed that the epic adventure movie will allow for some comical scenes when his character travels back in time to save the mutant race.

Speaking to MTV, Jackman said: ''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.''

Hugh further explained that the movie isn't just a money-grabbing attempt to copy Marvel's superhero team-up movie, The Avengers, stating: ''I think some people are saying, 'Ah, this just sounds like an excuse to get all these actors together and make an Avengers-style movie.' But the truth is that it's a great script and Bryan is very ambitious to make the best movie of them all.

"He's got the biggest cast, the biggest budget, and he started it all, so it's his legacy. He's a fan of time-travel movies, and the detail that's gone into it is incredible.

''I'm quietly confident that it will be the biggest and the best of them all. When I sat there on that panel at Comic Con, and looked down at all the actors, you think, 'This might be one of the best ensembles ever assembled.'''
