20th Century Fox Production President Emma Watts Reups Through 2015
By MIKE FLEMING | Monday January 30, 2012 @ 11:30am EST

EXCLUSIVE: 20th Century Fox has re-upped production president Emma Watts to a new multi-year deal that will keep her in the post through 2015. The new deal was made by Tom Rothman and Jim Gianopulos, co-chairmen and CEOs of Fox Filmed Entertainment. Since taking over as sole production president in 2009, Watts has made it a priority to populate the studio’s slates with elite filmmakers, and keep them coming back for more. The studio in past years had the reputation of being very hands-on. That kept budgets in check, but didn’t make Fox a haven for major directors.

That is changing, and the quality of the recent films released by the studio has improved. Fox has just closed a deal with Matthew Vaughn to come back and direct the sequel to X-Men: First Class, with Simon Kinberg writing the script and Bryan Singer back as producer. The studio is so delighted with the job that Josh Trank did on the upcoming under-$20 million thriller Chronicle that he is being eyed for a big assignment, possibly the reboot of Fantastic Four. The studio has made a priority of the sequel to last summer’s hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes, with Rupert Wyatt back behind the camera. Fox, after ending the year with the Cameron Crowe directed We Bought a Zoo, has the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed Prometheus; and the studio got Timur Bekmambetov to direct Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. That film was produced by Tim Burton, who will direct for the studio Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, with a script being written by X-Men: First Class scribe Jane Goldman. This year, Fox has Ben Stiller directing and starring with Kristen Wiig in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, has Michael Mann directing Go Like Hell, the duel between Ford vs. Ferrari for sports car supremacy in the 60s; is readying the movie transfer of the hit series 24 with Kiefer Sutherland for late spring. Fox-based filmmaker Shawn Levy will soon set his next directing effort for the studio, likely to be the Max Landis-directed Frankenstein. The studio is currently in production on the Akiva Schaffer-directed Neighborhood Watch, with Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill starring.

Watts joined Fox in 1999 as creative exec after serving stints at production companies run by Russell Simmons and Oliver Stone. She became co-president of production in 2007.

By Garth Franklin Friday February 17th 2012 02:30AM
"X-Men: First Class 2" Is Magneto-Centric

Screenwriter Simon Kinberg is working with Matthew Vaughn over the next few months on the much anticipated sequel to last year's "X-Men: First Class" and reveals to MTV News that Michael Fassbender's Magneto and his relationship with James McAvoy's Charles X. Xavier will take on more prominence in the follow-up.

"That’s what was so cool about the first one and what we want to continue. Magneto becomes the villain ultimately of the franchise but he’s a much more complicated character as a young man. He’s someone you sympathize with, you care about you root for even though might not necessarily agree with his methods, you understand his philosophy" says Kinberg.

In terms of turning Magneto into more of an outright villain, Kinberg says "We’re still figuring that out. I think the truth is ultimately that because Michael [Fassbender] is such an interesting actor, he’ll never be full-on anything. He’ll have a villainous side and he’ll have a sympathetic human side you’ll be able to relate but you’ll also be afraid of him. He becomes Magneto, he says ‘Call me Magneto’ at the end of the first movie."

At present the title hasn't been settled on for the follow-up as the production is still in extremely early stages.

Did Jane Goldman Reveal That She's Working On The X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Sequel After All?
The much-in-demand screenwriter was previously on record as stating that she wasn't involved with Fox's sequel to X-Men:First Class but now it appears otherwise.
Mark Julian - 3/26/2012

Hey U Guys! were on the red carpet for the Jameson Empire Awards and scored a number of interviews including one with the flamboyantly vivacious Jane Goldman who confirmed that[@ the 1:32 mark]she and director Matthew Vaughn are developing the X-Men:First Class sequel "among other things." It was previously reported that Simon Kinberg would be writing the sequel so this development means that he's either working with Vaughn and Goldman or he's out.

X-Men: First Class is a 2011 American superhero film directed by Matthew Vaughn and produced by Bryan Singer, based on the X-Men characters appearing in Marvel Comics. The fifth installment in the X-Men series, the film acts as a prequel for the X-Men trilogy, being set primarily in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It focuses on the relationship between Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (Magneto), and the origin of their groups—the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, respectively. The film stars James McAvoy as Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Lensherr. Other cast members include Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoë Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till.

Announced in 2006, First Class entered production in August 2010 and finished in December, with additional photography taking up up to three weeks before the film's premiere in June 2011. Locations included Oxford, the Mojave desert and Georgia, with soundstage work in both Pinewood Studios and the 20th Century Fox stages in Los Angeles. The film received positive reviews and was a box-office success with earnings of $353 million worldwide.

X-Men: First Class Sequel to Shoot in January
by SuperHeroHype
April 05, 2012

Heat Vision reports that Twentieth Century Fox plans on beginning the shoot for its X-Men: First Class sequel in January, meaning that there will be no conflict over Jennifer Lawrence with Lionsgate over the filming of The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.

The trade says that Fox was originally planning on filming the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men" follow-up this fall, which would have conflicted with Lawrence's Catching Fire, a movie Lionsgate is targeting for an August-September start date. If that had happened, however, Fox would have won out considering the studio would have been able to exercise the sequel option on her contract, which she signed before her "Hunger Games" deal.

Lawrence will reprise her role of Mystique and is expected to be joined again by the likes of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones and Lucas Till.

Fox Sets Release Dates for X-Men: First Class Sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, ID4 3D and More
Fox makes several big release date announcements, while Disney moves Lone Ranger and Thor 2.
by Eric Goldman
May 31, 2012

20th Century Fox announced several release dates for upcoming films today, along with some date changes.

The big news (at least around IGN!) is the official release date for the sequel to X-Men: First Class, which will open July 18th, 2014. Still untitled, the film – again directed by Matthew Vaughn – will go into production in early 2013.

While no official casting has been announced, it’s assumed that at the very least James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence are returning – with Lawrence the subject of a bit of a scheduling war earlier this year, as Fox and Lionsgate both worked to set their production dates for the X-Men sequel and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, respectively. Ultimately, Fox agreed to wait a few months on X-Men, though this means the Hunger Games sequel -- beginning production this fall -- had to be especially fast-tracked, since Fox contractually has first option on the much sought-after Lawrence.

New 'X-Men' movie will be 'bigger', says writer

The sequel to 2011's 'X-Men: First Class' will begin shooting in the spring for a July 2014 release

New 'X-Men' movie will be 'bigger', says writer

The next X-Men sequel will be "a bigger movie than the last", its writer has revealed.

Simon Kinberg served as a producer on the last film in the franchise, 2011's X Men: First Class, and is currently scripting the sequel with director Matthew Vaughn and screenwriter Jane Goldman, both of whom also worked on the previous movie.

In a new interview with Collider, Kinberg revealed that the sequel should begin filming next spring (2013) for a July 2014 release. X:Men: First Class had a production budget of $160 million (£102 million), but Kinberg predicted that the sequel will cost more to make. He explained: "I don't know what the budget's going to be, we've got to finish the script before we have a budget, but I would assume that it is a bigger movie than the last in physical scope, and that we have the license to do that because of the success of First Class."

Comparing the new film to its predecessor, Kinberg continued: "I think it is as dramatic as that movie, but more epic [and] mythic in a way as well." He also called the sequel "extraordinarily ambitious" and noted that "it is unlike other X-Men movies and yet very much a celebration of the X-Men movies".

Earlier this year, Kinberg revealed movie that the new X-Men movie will trace the backstory of Michael Fassbender's Magneto character. He explained: "Magneto becomes the villain ultimately of the franchise but he's a much more complicated character as a young man. He's someone you sympathise with, you care about and you root for. Even though you might not necessarily agree with his methods, you understand his philosophy."

'X-Men: First Class' Sequel Will Feature More Michael Fassbender
Share

By Lisa Costantini , Hollywood.com Staff | Saturday, July 21, 2012

Now that Comic-Con is behind us, what do comic book junkies have to look forward to? Well, according to Collider, the answer is the X-Men: First Class sequel — which will include the back story of Michael Fassbender's character, Magneto.

In an interview with the film's writer/producer Simon Kinberg, new details emerged about the comic book flick he calls "the most guarded state secret I've ever been around."

The plan for the sequel — which he says "is unlike the other X-Men movies" — is to do some unexpected things with Xavier and Magneto. In February he told MTV, "Magneto becomes the villain ultimately of the franchise but he's a much more complicated character as a young man. He's someone you sympathize with, you care about, you root for even though you might not necessarily agree with his methods, you understand his philosophy."

In the new movie, Magneto will have "a villainous side and he'll have a sympathetic human side. You'll be able to relate, but you'll also be afraid of him."

Kinberg has been working closely with director Matthew Vaughn and producer Jane Goldman on the script and they "hope to begin shooting in spring of next year to come out in July of 2014."

‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel Title Confirmed To Be ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’
Posted about 24 hours ago by Janice Kay0

Straight from Russia, the website Film Business Today has confirmed that the sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class’ will be ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’

Rumors about the title began last month when Fox registered the name ‘Days of Future Past’ with the MPAA. At that time, it wasn’t known if the title would be for the sequel of ‘X-Men: First Class’ or not. Now it seems our Russian friends have made the confirmation.

Fans of the X-Men comic series will undoubtedly recognize the title as it is from the ‘Uncanny X-Men’ comic book storyline written in 1981 by legendary X-Men writer/artist team Chris Claremont and John Byrne. The storyline involves the X-Men trying to stop the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants led by Mystique from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly, a known anti-mutant political figure. When they fail, the event creates a timeline where Sentinels rule the US and mutants are hunted and placed in internment camps. The present day X-Men are forewarned by this possible timeline from future X-Men Kitty Pryde but despite the current X-Men succeeding in stopping the assassination, the dystopian future still exists as an alternate timeline rather than the true actual future.

Fox Studios has always envisioned ‘X-Men: First Class’ as the first of a trilogy. Scribe Simon Kinberg (who wrote ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and co-produced ‘X-Men: First Class) is currently writing the sequel with director Matthew Vaughn and his longtime collaborator Jane Goldman (‘Kick-Ass,’ ‘The Woman in Black’). Bryan Singer will return as co-producer on the film.

Many fans are pleased with the path that this sequel is going on as it may be able to bridge the inconsistencies and continuation problems that ‘X-men: First Class’ had with the original ‘X-Men’ trilogies. It will also be very interesting to see how Kinberg et al will bridge the two movies and how close to the comic the story will be.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will begin production sometime in January 2013 and has a July 18, 2014 release date.

'Days of Future Past' Story Confirmed for 'X-Men: First Class' Sequel

by Ethan Anderton
August 1, 2012
Source: IGN
Days of Future Past

Back in June, a story surfaced that 20th Century Fox had recently registered the title Days of Future Past with the MPAA Title Registration Bureau. For comic fans, that was a big deal as the story is a huge one in the X-Men universe, and with the X-Men: First Class sequel in development, with a set release date of July 18th, 2014, it only made sense that we would see director Matthew Vaughn take the young X-Men into this popular 1981 two-issue storyline that deals with alternate timelines. Now producer Bryan Singer confirms that fact saying, "It deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things." More below!

For those unfamiliar, here's a synopsis of the story from Wikipedia:

The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future. (The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe: Alternate Universes 2005 gave the numerical designation of "Days of Future Past Earth as Earth-811).

Basically, the idea of alternate universes allows for the original timeline of the X-Men trilogy to remain intact while setting off on a new arc with these younger X-Men. It's basically the same idea J.J. Abrams applied to his Star Trek franchise so as not to disrupt the original Star Trek film franchise. However, I think the story seems even more out of this world than the universe Matthew Vaughn created, which was fairly grounded for a movie about people with mutant powers. But Bryan Singer does note to IGN that this whole alternate timeline business might allow for some connectivity to the other X-Men films as well:

"I think there's a strong desire to broaden out the universe. I mean the 'X-Men' universe is every bit on is own as big as the Marvel universe. I thin it s time to reach out and explore and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films as Marvel has done so well. So you may see some of that. I don't know."

Now the problem we run into here is that since Fox owns the rights to X-Men, we wouldn't see any cross over with The Avengers or any of the characters from that team (though a small crossover with The Amazing Spider-Man almost happened). However, Fox does own the rights to Fantastic Four, and there could easily be some crossover action there with the reboot. Or perhaps Singer was talking about the connectivity of certain characters from the original X-Men films cropping up in the X-Men: First Class sequels as the timelines comes closer to the not to distant future of the original film trilogy. I guess we'll have to wait and see what writer Simon Kinberg has in store for us.

‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel Adapting Awesomely Apocalyptic Time Travel Tale ‘Days of Future Past’
Movie News By Nathan Adams on August 2, 2012

One of the most enduring and well-liked storylines from Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s legendary run on the “Uncanny X-Men” comic book was known as ‘Days of Future Past.’ It introduced readers to a post-apocalyptic future (hilariously, 2013) where the Earth is controlled by giant robots, mutants are all either killed or locked up in internment camps, and only a small handful of rebels remain. These rebels, determining that all of this badness started with the assassination of Senator Robert Kelly by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and his subsequent martyring by anti-mutant forces, send an older version of Kitty Pryde back to the present to warn the X-Men that they must stop the assassination at all costs. Basically, the story is a cross between Back to the Future and The Terminator, with super-powered mutants, and it’s one of the front-runners for coolest thing ever.

So it’s super exciting to hear that Matthew Vaughn is apparently going to be using it as the inspiration for the sequel to his 2011 reboot of the X-Men franchise, X-Men: First Class. Confirmation of this news came from an interview IGN conducted with producer Bryan Singer. When asked what he could reveal about the First Class sequel, Singer dropped a bombshell by saying, “It’s going to be very ambitious. It’s called Days of Future Past, and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things… I just don’t want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I’m totally excited about it.”

Aspects of that comic, but some new things? That should be enough to get fans’ imaginations racing. Personally, I always like what the 90s-era X-Men cartoon did with the story by replacing ghost Kitty Pryde with the time traveling Bishop (who serves in a future, militarized version of the X-Men known as Xavier’s Security Enforcers). If Singer and Vaughn went this route, it would be a good chance to introduce another character into their already rich universe and an opportunity to give a young actor like, say, a John Boyega a chance to do some work in a big blockbuster.

Speaking of masturbatory fanboy speculation, apparently Singer and Vaughn’s co-opting of Claremont and Byrne’s story has been a rumor in the fan community for a while now, and there’s even been some talk that the story could be used as a way to integrate characters from First Class with characters from the previous X-Men film franchise that was started by Singer’s 2000 film, X-Men. When asked about these rumors, Singer said, “I think there’s a strong desire to broaden out the universe. I mean, the X-Men universe is every bit on its own as big as the Marvel universe, and I think it’s time to reach out and explore it and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films, as Marvel’s done so well. So, you may see some of that, I don’t know.”

Could we end up seeing Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan and James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart all in the same movie playing the same characters? It could be argued the possibility was already opened up by the surprising cameo they stuck in the middle of First Class, and in a movie landscape where J.J. Abrams has us using terms like “Spock Prime,” you have to think anything is possible.

Mark Miller Discusses His Consultant Role for Fox’s Marvel Superhero Movies

Posted on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 by Angie Han

Marvel Studios’ plans for a unified Marvel Cinematic Universe may have seemed wildly ambitious when they were first announced a few years ago, but after the dazzling success of this summer’s The Avengers there’s no question that all the risk and hard work has paid off. The endeavor proved such a hit, in fact, that it sent other studios scrambling to up their game as well.

A few weeks ago, 20th Century Fox (which holds rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four) took a first step toward improving their comic book offerings by hiring Mark Millar to serve as the “creative consultant” for all Marvel-based films. Now the famously fan-friendly comic book writer has spoken up about what exactly that’ll entail. Read his comments after the jump.

Millar explained his new gig during an appearance on the Word Balloon podcast (via Screen Rant). Just as Joss Whedon will be overseeing all Avengers Phase 2 projects for Marvel Studios, so Millar will be shepherding Marvel adaptations for Fox. Currently, that means The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Fantastic Four, as well as Nemesis, which has been in development at Fox since 2010.

The outspoken Millar was quick to acknowledge Fox’s spotty history with superheroes (Elektra, anyone?), but pointed out that the studio’s had some major successes as well:

There have been some poor decisions in the past, but you also have to remember that there have been some excellent ones too. Bryan Singer’s X-Men for example, I think revolutionised superhero movies. It pre-dated Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, and I think you forget how close that was chronologically to Batman and Robin! To open with a Holocaust scene in a superhero movie was just unheard of. Fox get a lot of flak for the films which didn’t work out, and quite rightly, but you forget that they’ve done some really great stuff too. I’m thinking specifically of X-Men, X-Men 2 and X-Men: First Class.

What’s changed, Millar says, is a new staff dedicated to bringing their Marvel movies to the next level:

The team who is running the show over there now I’m very comfortable with. I actually really like everything that they’re doing, and they recognise more than anyone the mistakes that they’ve made in the past and they just want to do right by the fans. Hiring myself was a first step in a number of things that they’re planning and they just really want to be respectful to the material I think. X-Men: First Class, which I absolutely loved, just feels like planting the flag for what they’re planning to do over the next few years.

Although Fantastic Four, The Wolverine, and X-Men: Days of Future Past were in the works long before Millar was hired, he was enthusiastic (if vague) in his praise for them.

Hiring Josh Trank for Fantastic Four…it could just not be more different than the first Fantastic Four movie from what I’ve seen so far. Even just as a fan, I’m very, very excited by the level of talent they have on the directors side of things.

[...]

I can’t say too much about it right now, but The Wolverine has only just started shooting really, I mean it’s been shooting for a few weeks now. I really do like it and I’m really impressed by it. Days of Future Past, which is being written at the moment, is the next one up and at the same time, Fantastic Four is being written right now. In a weird way, it’s just the easiest job in the world as I’m surrounded by people who are so good!

As a longtime Marvel writer (he’s worked on The Ultimates, Fantastic Four, and Civil War, among other titles), Millar should be able to offer some valuable insight. It’s far too soon to tell how much control and influence Millar will really have, but just the fact that they’ve hired him seems like a step in the right direction.

TOLDJA! Fox Closes Deal For Bryan Singer To Direct Next ‘X-Men’
By THE DEADLINE TEAM | Tuesday October 30, 2012 @ 3:02pm PDTTags: 20th Century Fox, Big Deals Film, Bryan Singer, X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Comments 38

Bryan Singer X-Men DirectorBryan Singer has just closed his deal to return to the director’s chair for the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the next installment of 20th Century Fox‘s superhero series. The ink is still drying on the deal, we’ve learned. Matthew Vaughn was to direct the sequel to the hit spinoff X-Men: First Class, but we told you last week he was stepping back and that Singer would return to the directors chair in the X-Men franchise he launched; word is he is near a deal to produce this one instead along with writer Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Singer launched the X-Men feature franchise with the first two superb films and has been a guiding influence in this spinoff by writing the treatment and producing. Fox already has the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and set to return is Fox’s First Class cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence. The studio hopes to make the July 18, 2014 release date it set for the sequel.

Singer’s next film is Jack The Giant Slayer for New Line. He is repped by WME.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' to take place 10 years after 'First Class'
Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and other stars to rock '70s fashions

By HitFix Staff Thursday, Jan 31, 2013 6:50 PM

While the first three "X-Men" films were (relatively) contemporary, the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men: First Class" turned back the clock to 1962 in order to explore the early days of Professor X, his friend-turned-nemesis Magneto and some of the younger mutants who would go on to form the X-Men.

With the upcoming sequel "X-Men: Days of Future Past," things could get a little funky.

According to a casting call sheet obtained by Comic Book News, "most of the film" takes place in 1973. That's a full decade after the events in "First Class," which centered around the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Returning director Bryan Singer has lined up a stellar cast for "Past," with veterans Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen rubbing shoulders with their "First Class" counterparts, including James McAvoy as a younger Xavier, Michael Fassbender as junior Magneto, Nicholas Hoult (Beast) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique).

The most recent announcements also revealed the return of Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Anna Paquin as Rogue, and Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde.

With the film taking place in two timelines -- the 1973 "present" and a dystopian future era -- the returning "X-Men" cast members (Jackman, Stewart, McKellen, etc) will likely only be seen in scenes depicting the film's future.

Before leaving the director's chair, Vaughn previously said he envisaged kicking off the sequel with the 1963 assassination of JFK, which seems much less likely now. However, '73 saw its share of significant shakeups, including the end of U.S. involvement in the Viet Nam war; a crippling gas crisis; a war in Israel; and the aftermath of the Watergate scandal.

The call sheet also notes that the Montreal shoot will last from April to August, which is a fairly long production schedule.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be released July 18, 2014.

X-Men: Days of Future Past verrà ambientato dieci anni dopo gli eventi di X-Men: L’inizio
1 febbraio 2013, 15:29 | di Marlen Vazzoler

Grazie alle prime richieste di casting per le comparse nel film di Bryan Singer, X-Men: Days of Future Past, è stato rivelato uno dei periodi in cui verrà ambientato il film, ovvero la data in cui verrà assassinato il personaggio chiave che…
Share on Tumblr

I primi casting call di X-Men: Days of Future Past hanno rivelato che la maggior parte del film verrà ambientata nel 1973, ovvero una decina d’anni dopo gli eventi narrati in X-Men: L’inizio, questa scelta potrebbe spiegare l’assenza di alcuni personaggi presenti nel film di Matthev Vaughn, assenti nel seguito diretto da Bryan Singer. La maggior parte dei casting si terrà a Montreal, gli extra dovranno essere disponibili da aprile ad agosto, anche se le riprese cominceranno da metà febbraio.

Considerando che nel fumetto originale, Kate Pryde viaggia dal 2013 al 1980 per cambiare il futuro, in questa versione cinematografica il futuro potrebbe essere una versione alternativa delle vicende raccontate nella trilogia degli X-Men (2000-2006, ndr.), oppure una versione alternativa dei giorni nostri. Al momento non è stato ancora rivelato in che periodo sarà ambientato il futuro, anche se la scelta di usare il 2013/2014 sembra la più ovvia. Inoltre se Singer terrà conto degli eventi di The Wolverine, ambientati dopo Conflitto finale, la costruzione delle Sentinelle potrebbe essere portata a termine dopo gli eventi del film di James Mangold.

Il regista ha caricato qualche giorno fa, sul suo account Twitter, una foto del design di un set di Future Past. È evidente che non si tratta della villa di Charles, sarà una costruzione del futuro?
X-Men: Days of Future Past uscirà nei cinema americani il 18 luglio del 2014. Potrete seguire l’intera produzione seguite le news dal blog.

Bryan Singer has promised that X-Men: Days of Future Past will delve into the character of Magneto.

Singer returns to the franchise as director for the first time since 2003's X2, for the upcoming sequel which will take place ten years after the events of X-Men: First Class.

To hear what Singer has to say about the upcoming sequel, watch the video above.

Along with McKellen, X-Men veterans including Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman are confirmed to return for the sequel, which finds the characters struggling to change a major historical event that could set in motion a terrible future.

Bryan Singer Reveals Magneto's "Toys" In X-MEN: DOFP Production Still
The latest X-Men: Days Of Future Past Twitter tease from director Bryan Singer suggests that Magneto (older or younger?) might have developed a fondness for...extreme persuasion techniques in the soon-to-shoot movie. Check out the snap after the jump..
Mark "RorMachine" Cassidy - 4/1/2013


What do you guys make of this? Did Michael Fassbender's Magneto develop a taste for torture after that filling removal scene from X-Men: First Class? Or will it be the older version of the character played by Ian McKellen? Either way I think Singer is definitely teasing that one of them will be using their powers to manipulate the above instruments for evil purposes in the movie.
