First ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Production Still Hits Twitter

Bryan Singer, maybe because the dot com and @XMenMovie are mine and maybe just because it’s easier, has been using his Twitter account to disseminate information from the upcoming, catch-all X-Men movie: ‘Days of Future Past.’

It’s a catch all because it involves all X-Characters from the previous X-Trilogy and the ‘Wolverine’ duology, so Ian McKellen can meet Michael Fassbender and whatnot. He’s also talked to James Cameron about time travel.

Basically, they got the original X-Director back because they keep wiffing on this franchise while Disney goes baller. On one hand, this should make me pessimistic because it’s an entire movie about retconning away at least two other films (maybe three depending on how and if ‘Days’ connects to ‘Wolverine’). But on the other hand that I choose to favor – they’re going big, and I’m a fan of “go big or go home” when it comes to my beloved Marvel characters.

Singer tweeted out the first pre-production photo of ‘Days of Future Past:’

 

It looks like the model for a large set (future mutant camp? Xavier’s School lower levels?) contrasted against the floor plan of a conceptualized location. I’d say the drawing is of a cave just because of the way that tunnel looks to lead into it. As to what cave it could be or what time period it’s in?: who knows?

Are these two sets placed together for a reason? Is the cave a pre-X-Men complex that becomes the set?

Tons of questions, not a lot of answers until 2014.

    Is that Ian McKellen in the far left corner?

    Yes. Good eye!

    Ouch, poor guy…
    Those eyes of his look really puffy.
    Hope he is healthy, for a long time.
    What a cool fellow.

    It’s a mock up of the convenience store where Wolverine buys some beef jerky and beer. Singer is very detail oriented. What you don’t see is the plethora of beef jerky samples off to the side (he prides himself on authenticity). That’s why Ian McKellan is there. Man love his jerky.

    I like the guy, but think he was to old to play Magneto to begin with as the franchise moves forward they will have to replace him.

    Agreed.
    But, man, he is a great actor, and that voice…
    What an actor. :)
    Hope he is around a while longer.
    Cheers, Ignacio.

    There was a part of the comics that actually had him de-aged to explain why he wasn’t 80. This could allow Fassbender to move into the modern stories.
