Hugh Jackman: X-Men cast party hard

Hugh Jackman has fond memories of “hitting the dance club” with his X-Men: Days of Future Past castmates.

The Australian actor stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage and Halle Berry in the Marvel movie franchise.

The ensemble reunited on Saturday at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego to speak about their newest series instalment X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Being with his co-stars again on the panel evoked fond memories in Hugh of the huge amount of fun they had together while shooting the picture.

Hugh says following the discussion the cast picked up where the party left off and they headed to a local discotheque to boogie down.

"We hit the usual dance club," he laughed to Entertainment Tonight. "We all sort of hung out together that day -- Michael Fassbender leading us all astray."

Hugh was blown away by the audience’s lively energy while he sat on the Comic-Con panel.

The experience provided him with a fresh perspective on how much people value the X-Men franchise.

"What's so cool about it was doing that for the fans," he explained.

"Because obviously we're shooting it at the moment, so we're always together all the time, but you have to really take a moment and realise how lucky you are to be on a panel with that kind of calibre of people, and in front of that crowd -- they just went mental."

X-Men: Days of Future Past will reach theatres in May 2014.
