When the news was announced that the follow up to X-Men: First Class would involve the Days of Future Past story line, X-Fans breathed a sigh of relief. Marvel and Fox now have the chance to wipe away the bad X-Men movies (namely X-Men: The Last Stand) and bridge the two different time lines/ movies together.
Since Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, “Superman: Red Son”) has become the creative consultant on the X-Men movies at Fox, he recently gave us this update on the next X- Film:
“[Matthew] Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past….(it’s) X-Men meets The Terminator. You’ve got robots, you’ve got time travel, you’ve got superheroes – it’s got everything in one film. He also said that it is “no spoiler on [his] part” to say that the film goes into an apocalyptic future. Cost-wise it’s going to go up, and ambitious-wise it’s gone up. But Vaughn can handle it. Vaughn made Kick-Ass for $28 million.”
With Kitty Pryde already slated to be the time traveling X-Man who else will we see in cameo and feature length roles?
