Don't call me an ex man; Hugh Jackman isn't shedding his Wolfie sideburns yet.

Byline: Rick Fulton

HUGH Jackman has no plans to hang up his leather jacket and retire as claw-wielding superhero Wolverine.

The 45-year-old Aussie has played the mean mutant seven times on the big screen in 14 years.

He's once again in the thick of the action in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is out this week.

And he'll star in a sequel to the 2013 Wolverine film, due out in 2017.

He said: "I don't think this is my last X-Men movie.

"I really don't know because ever since X-Men 2, when I had a twopicture deal, each time I've waited to see who the director is and what the script is. I'm working right now on another Wolverine movie so I'm very excited about that."

In the latest he'll be reunited with Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult, his co-stars from X-Men: First Class, as well as Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Halle Berry.

Hugh said: "It was an incredible reunion. There was a lot of laughter and it was great fun. Everyone was so close, they all bonded and were really passionate about the movie.

"In a way, it was like two great movies in one and I was the only person lucky enough to work with all of them." In the latest movie, Wolverine is sent back to 1973 to stop a group of robots known as Sentinels killing mutants in the present.

It picks up where First Class left off with Charles Xavier (McAvoy) a broken man who has lost his telephathic powers after taking a serum to allow him to walk again.

The film should also have starred Hugh's daughter Ava, eight who had a day on the set as an extra.

XHugh, who also has son Oscar, 14, said: "She had her hair and make-up done and sat around waiting all day and finally did her bit.

"Then, when we watched the movie, her part had been cut out. I guess that was her first harsh showbiz lesson."
