From Dark Horizons:
There’s been murmurs that X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel, would include time travel and alternate dimensions. Well, that talk has now just been given a lot more credence. Director Bryan Singer just tweeted: “I’d like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult to X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Also thrilled to announce Sir Ian Mckellen and Sir Patrick Stewart.”
I had a blast watching X-Men: First Class (except for the implicitly racist scene where they kill off the lone black character) but my enthusiasm for this sequel, due in the summer of 2014, is now reaching Danger Room levels. The X-Men story arc this movie appears based on was pretty damn grim and compelling (well, for a kid in grade seven or whatever grade I was in). Dark alternate future stories are some of my favourite genre baubles and now Patrick Stewart will have two to his credit: this movie and the absolutely killer Star Trek: TNG episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise”.
Can’t wait! Hey, look at this, it’s great.
