X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer blockbuster season. The movie is based on a beloved storyline from the comic books and serves as a sequel to 2011's wildly popular X-Men: First Class.

Hugh Jackman has a background in theater, and an even more extensive background playing Wolverine. So naturally, the Aussie action star is the perfect fit for a fake musical about everyone's favorite X-Man.

Wolverine: The Musical made its brief debut during a recent interview Jackman gave to BBC radio, and if Broadway is looking for a way to get more dudes in the audience, they've found it!

In a song set to the tune of "One More Day" from Les Miserables, Jackman crooned about his ripped physique ("I gave up junk food that I know, I made that bargain long ago") and, of course, works in a plug for his upcoming flick ("I play the X-man, yes it's quite a task, in X-Men: Days of Future Past").

Sadly, the two minute clip above is the all that exists of this glorious fake musical, but with any luck, it'll go super-viral and get theater producers to take notice.

After winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, Hugh quipped, "Sorry, I’m at the tail end of this flu and I was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot."

"But it appears actually you don’t need one. I feel great!"

In the midst of the worst flu outbreak in years, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention are on a mission to correct his message - whatever that was.
