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.

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.
