“Days of Future Past” is quickly approaching. The scope of the cast will be huge and whether it can be pulled off right is anyone’s guess. Long-time X-Men director Bryan Singer will sure try to pull it off, especially with two of these movies successfully under his belt. Singer did talk about some of what he has planned.
When Matthew Vaughn stepped away from this newest installment, Singer arrived to oversee its completion. One intriguing announcement will how he will use CGI in the sequel, which probably stemmed from “Jack the Giant Slayer.” “A CG Nick Hoult or a CG Ewan McGregor, maybe 20 years from now might be perfect, but it’s a little tough on the eyes when it’s not real,” he said of computer-generated characters. Both Hoult and McGregor will be starring in “Jack the Giant Slayer.”
Continuing on the subject, he says, “But I definitely want to use this technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in ‘X-Men.’ I don’t want to say how yet, but I’m definitely using some of this technology on ‘X-Men,’ which I never used in any of the other ‘X-Men’ films.” Could this be a possible Sentinels hint? Regardless of what it could mean, he was open to using CG characters in the film.
The cast will have a wide array of talent such as Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, and more. Singer says the script will accommodate each, but there is one character noticeably missing.
Halle Berry, who played the weather-controlling mutant Storm, has still been not confirmed for the “Days of Future Past.” Singer does not yet know if she will return. “I can’t say. I don’t know yet. And it’s not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it’ll make sense. But I love working with her.”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be released July 2014.
