The new X-Men: Days of Future Past—the blockbuster superhero sequel opening in theaters this week—takes place across two timelines. The film opens in a Hellish post-apocalyptic future where sentient robots have run amok and massacred or enslaved much of the Earth’s population.

“I think Wolverine never wanted to leave the 1970s,” says Hugh Jackman, who has appeared as the clawed superhero in all seven X-Men films. “The hair, the mutton chops, the clothes… I think the moment that Tears for Fears, A Flock of Seagulls, Wham!, Duran Duran came along Wolverine was like, I’m out.” More
