X-Men: Days of Future Past

Recommended Posts

Heat Vision reports that Twentieth Century Fox plans on beginning the shoot for its X-Men: First Class sequel in January, meaning that there will be no conflict over Jennifer Lawrence with Lionsgate over the filming of The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.

The trade says that Fox was originally planning on filming the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men" follow-up this fall, which would have conflicted with Lawrence's Catching Fire, a movie Lionsgate is targeting for an August-September start date. If that had happened, however, Fox would have won out considering the studio would have been able to exercise the sequel option on her contract, which she signed before her "Hunger Games" deal.

Lawrence will reprise her role of Mystique and is expected to be joined again by the likes of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones and Lucas Till.

I doubt Wolverine will be involved - he's got his own movie in 2013. Making the X-films so Logan-centric is one reason a lot of other iconic characters got pretty much ignored. Cyclops in particular was shafted while they made essentially Wolverine And Friends.

We reported this June that Fox was snatching up Days of Future Past URLs, now Russian site StarkIndustries.ru is citing a Russian site roughly translated to “Film Business Today” to break the news that the sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class’ will be titled ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past.’

Argh, please, no more Wolverine. Seriously. I liked how fresh First Class felt, because it had different characters. I don't want to see Logan stealing the spotlight once again.

Besides, looking at his resume, I think The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil, X-Men, Public Access, X-2, and parts of Valkyrie outweigh the other parts of Valkyrie and Superman Returns. Since Jack The Giant Slayer hasn't come out yet, I don't think it's all that fair to judge it yet. Considering Singer came into the film after all the crazy insane drama had started with the film, I don't think he was at the heart of it either.

To be frank, they stuffed up First Class by blowing their load on the Magneto turn too early. So I've never been that excited about the sequels as it seems they are hell bent on cramming too much in to them.

As was rumored to be the case last week, ComingSoon.net has now confirmed that X-Men and X2 director Bryan Singer is officially locked in to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past following the departure of X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn.

Scheduled for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past boasts a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

Singer produced First Class alongside Vaughn and Vaughn will remain aboard the new film as producer himself.

In addition to directing the recently-aired "Mockingbird Lane" Halloween special, Singer directed the upcoming Jack the Giant Slayer, set for release on March 1, 2013.

I'm really betting on his non-refusal of roles when I eventually ask him to do the audiobook version of my autobiography.
