Reports Claim Hugh Jackman Will Feature in  X-Men: Apocalypse Reshoots
When it comes to the question of who the biggest star of the X-Men franchise is, there's only one answer that can be delivered. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine has been at the core of Fox's X-Men universe right from the very start, appearing in every single movie to date. With that in mind, one can understand why X-Men fans felt a bit aggrieved when Fox refused to confirm whether or not Jackman would be appearing in their 2016 installment, X-Men: Apocalypse. 

Ever since details on Apocalypse were announced, rumors have been rife that Fox would find a way to work Jackman in, and those rumors were only intensified after the Australian appeared on stage during the studio's panel at San Diego Comic Con. Now there are new reports that will likely give Wolverine fans cause for hope. According to Journal de Montreal, Simon Kinberg and his crew are set to undergo a series of reshoots in Montreal in January, and featuring in those reshoots will be, you guessed it, Hugh Jackman. Of course, Fox has not confirmed that Jackman will appear, but if he does it may end up being one of the worst-kept secrets of the year.

Jackman is set to hang up his adamantium exoskeleton after starring in Wolverine 2 in 2017, so if (and that's a big 'if') these rumors prove true, we could receive some nice bonus Wolverine footage next May.
