X-Men: DoFP Character Confirmations, New Pic and Plot Synopsis

XMEN

I hope you’re in the mood for some news regarding X-Men: Days of Future Past, because I have some good stuff for you.

First up, Vulture has some character confirmations.

We all knew (or at least highly speculated) that Peter Dinklage was playing Bolivar Trask, creator of the Sentinels. Vulture has now confirmed this.

The other character is one we didn’t know about, and that is who Josh Helman is playing: William Stryker.

This makes Helman the third actor to play the character. In X2: X-Men United Bryan Cox played him and in X-Men Origins: Wolverine Danny Huston filled the shoes. Since DoFP takes place roughly ten years before Origins, it makes sense for him to be younger.

Next we have new pic from the set courtesy of Bryan Singer, and it’s of a familair face from X-Men: First Class:

Yes, Lucas Till is back as Alex “Havoc” Summers.

Here’s the caption Singer tweeted with the shot:

“Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.” -JFK

Last we have a description of what the plot of the film will be. As we know from the title it will be based in part on Chris Claremont’s Days of Future Past story line.

Here’s what Vulture has on Singer’s adaptation:

In Singer’s take, Ellen Page returns as Kitty from the Brett Ratner–directed X-Men: The Last Stand, but this time she uses her powers to send Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine back into the past, where he encounters the younger mutants played by James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender. However, something bad happens to Kitty during the time-travel trance, and while Wolverine is still under her spell, the other X-Men must race to find a mutant who can siphon Kitty’s powers and bring their friend back to the future.

As Vulture posits, it’s a safe bet this is where Rogue make her self useful.

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theatres May 23, 2014.

    Great I’m glad he’s back! I hope some of the others return as well. I can’t wait for Days! Sounds great!

    Rogue wouldn’t have been born yet in the 70′s would she? Wouldn’t make sense for it to be her to return Wolverine back to the present time. Maybe rogue is a little girl and they find her and use her to send him back but she doesn’t know what she is doing and the end up really far in the future?

    this timeline is more f*cked than the comic continuity. Not a small feat, but they have done it. I personally like out-of-continuity stories that Marvel puts out under the Marvel Knights and MAX imprints. I wish the movies were more like that. More creative vision. NO continuity. I have a feeling that’s what Aronofsky’s Wolverine would have been. That’s why the first Iron Man movie was so damn good. No bullshit with continuity and they trusted Favreau.

  • Kurt G. Buttstadt

    If you think about the movie X-men, the timelines, continuity, and ages you WILL lose your mind and go out like Michael Douglas in Falling Down. Guaranteed.

  • Philip Sticco

    It’s the future Rogue that helps Kitty Pride in the alternate future. I don’t think Rogue is old enough in the films to have even been alive in the 70s.

  • King Rim Anus

    I’m confused already.

  • J.A.C.

    Wow that sound like a really horrible movie.

  • Daniel Patrick Roche

    Sadly, accordingly to the current editor-in-chief over there, those imprints will no longer be completely out of continuity.

  • Daniel Patrick Roche

    Since First Class established that Wolverine is alive, well, and completely indistinguishable from the Wolverine in the original series in the First Class timeline, isn’t it a little stupid have him be the character they send back in time? And doesn’t that open up all sorts of Looper and Time Cop-like paradoxes, i.e. more danger?

  • kd

    Perhaps you should read the comic?

  • Daniel Patrick Roche

    I’m familiar with it, it doesn’t have these issues and Wolverine isn’t the central character of the story.

    Who says that Rouge HAS to be in the past?
