Hugh Jackman has been confirmed for 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'.

The 44-year-old actor will definitely reprise his role as clawed superhero Wolverine in the sequel to 2011's 'X-Men: First Class', joining an all-star cast including Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

Director Brian Singer announced the news via Twitter, posting: ''I would officially like to welcome @RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited! More to come...''

This will mark the seventh time Hugh - who unveiled his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last Thursday (13.12.12) - has played Marvel comic book character Wolverine on the big screen.

He recently roused speculation he would be appearing in the film by hinting he was negotiating a bigger role which would give his muscular alter ego a more exciting storyline.

Hugh said: ''I did a three-hour, three-word cameo in the last one. It literally took me three hours. I have been talking to Bryan Singer about doing something in this. There will be more claws in this.''

The Australian-born hunk will next be seen in spin-off 'The Wolverine', which he believes will be the ''best'' film of the franchise to date as the titular character delves deeper into his identity.

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' is set for release on July 18, 2014.
