Singer en Kinberg spreken over X-Men: Days of Future Past en Apocalypse

De promotiemachine voor X-Men: Days of Future Past kent geen grenzen. Na 25 Empire covers en nieuwe stills, is er nu een interview vrijgegeven met regisseur Bryan Singer en scriptschrijver Simon Kinberg. Op de vraag hoe Wolverine metalen klauwen zou hebben in de ‘future’ scenes (in navolging van het einde van 2013’s The Wolverine) antwoordde Singer:

“[Magneto could] reconstitute the adamantium claws… [Wolverine] has a different relationship with Magneto, and perhaps Magneto could forge them.”

Een andere vraag was waarom Rouge een Empire cover heeft gekregen, terwijl het recentelijk was aangekondigd dat ze uit de film is geknipt. Kinberg antwoordde:

“It was one real sequence in the movie. We felt like it was taking tension out of the main story drive.”

Singer voegde toe:

“It does not mean that we won’t see her in the film. Also, I hope to make the sequence available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family. I ‘m very pleased she will remain as one of Empire’s anniversary covers.”

Ten slotte spraken ze over X-Men: Apocalypse. Singer zei:

“One thing that interests me is the notion of ancient mutants. What would people thousands of years ago, without the benefit of science, think mutants were? And more importantly, what would mutants thousands of years ago think they were? Gods? Titans? Angels? Demons? And if such mutants did exist thousands of years ago, what became of them? Did one survive?”

Kinberg voegde toe:

“Age of Apocalypse was one of my favorite stores. We like the stakes of it, and it feels like a story that could impact a lot of our favorite characters in big, dramatic ways. We feel it’s a very different story from Days of Future Past. For starters, it’s a very different villain, and the characters will be in very different places emotionally.”

Singer liet verder weten dat de film, welke vanaf 27 mei 2016 te zien zal zijn: “more of a First Class sequel. It’ll take place some time after this movie. What happens in this movie brings about what’ll happen in that movie.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past heeft in de hoofdrollen Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till en Evan Jonigkeit.
