Next X-Men Movie - "Days of Future Past"

It’s being reported that Fox, the movie studio behind X-Men: First Class and the other host of X-Men films, registered the title “Days of Future Past” with the MPAA, leading to speculation that director Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class, which begins filming next year, will encompass the classic time-traveling X-Men story. Update: And now Bryan Singer has confirmed it. We’re getting Days of Future Past.

I believe I may have just "nerdgasmed".

Interesting that this has been confirmed. Not entirely convinced they can pull this off, but it definitely helps with bridging the gap of the other movies.

This is by far my favorite xmen story line and I am having a complete nerd-freak out right now. SQUEEEEEE!

So, both casts?

Loved that storyline as a kid. Would just stare at those covers.

It had better have Kitty Pryde.

I have that issue of uncanny x-men (#141) around here somehwere. Bought it as kid.

More Colossus!

Having Brian Singer back should help. The 3rd X-Men-movie-that-shall-not-be-named was terrible (directed by the guy that did Rush Hour 1, 2, & 3).

"Days" was probably my favorite X-Men storyline (that, or almost any line involving Apocalypse).

Plus... SENTINELS!!

Definitely a bold move on Fox's part. Here's to hoping they can pull it off.

I think I remember a variant of this from the Saturday Morning Cartoon, which was decently close to the original comics as far as TV shows go. Either way, I don't remember the specifics, but it seems like this might be another way to dodge the "is it really canonical or a reboot?" question from First Class.

Yeah the FOX 90s cartoon was awesome. They adequately covered this, Phoenix Saga, and some great Apocalypse stuff.

If you're not watching Community already, you should be. :p

Trailer!

Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, the two behind First Class' script, wrote the story here, but not the script proper. I'm not sure. I haven't liked a Bryan Singer movie as much as I enjoyed The Usual Suspects. But I must confess, I do really dig the tone of this one.

Ooh.

Now that's a trailer I can get behind.

That...looks pretty awful. I know it's early days and it's not nearly close to finishing post production, but that bombastic, mournful tone combined with the cheap look and awkward transitions is just ugh.

Especially when you put it next to something as well cut as the Captain America trailer.

Let's be fair, the X-Men films have never looked as well put together as the Marvel films. Even when they were making jokes about yellow spandex it looked like people walking around in costumes to film a movie.
