Also, notice that Jackman was not among the names mentioned by Singer in the first wave of names. That might suggest those first names are the most crucial to the story.
thats true you would think they would get jackman straight away if he was a big part of the story
maybe wolverines role is set in the future setting where if jackman doesn't come back it could be replaced by another mutant
