Bryan Singer over Time Frame in X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men Days of Future Past

We weten inmiddels dat X-Men: Days of Future Past de cast van zowel de originele X-Men films en 2011’s X-Men: First Class zal combineren, wat we echter niet weten is waar het zal plaatsnemen in relatie tot deze films. Regisseur Bryan Singer verklapte de placering van deze film in de algehele tijdlijn:

“It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class. Singer also coined a new word for what to call the film, “I’d say it’s not a sequel to one of the others. It’s an inbetwequel – that’s what I call it, for lack of a better word.”

Hij vervolgt:

“It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York. It’s got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.”

Tevens sprak hij over de “1970s” delen van de film en onthulde waar Charles Xavier en Magneto zich bevinden aan het begin van de film:

“Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past is te zien vanaf 23 mei 2014 met in de hoofdrollen Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman en Lucas Till.
