We’ve got about a year to go before we are able to bear witness to the spectacle that will be X-Men: Days of Future Past, and in a recent interview, the Wolverine himself had a bit to say regarding the film.
Days of Future Past, an ambition project by (thankfully) returning helmsman Bryan Singer, boasts an entire army of actors from the previous X-Men film, as well as X1 to X3: The Last Stand. While most of you already know the entire cast, bear witness to this impressive list, as per Comingsoon: Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, 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 and Lucas Till.
Merging the ‘reboot’ with the first three films, we are definitely set for something truly dramatic and I’m going to hold thumbs that Mr. Singer has the vision to bring it all together. It is no small task and I really hope that Days of Future Past does not fall flat under its own weight…how can they possibly fit enough screen time for many of the big name actors to have the movie not feel rushed? I am going to be optimistic, though, as there does seem to be a grand plan in motion and for now I’ll just wait patiently for all news regarding this I can devour. Here is what Hugh Jackman had to say regarding the film:
I know, having sat at Comic-Con on that panel with that extraordinary cast, I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one. It really is going to blow people away because of the story. Bryan Singer, I think, is going to become the first director to make increasingly better movies in a franchise, I’m not sure if there’s anyone else that’s done it.
Three movies in one? Nobody tell Peter Jackson, he prefers turning single books into trilogies! So, what say you, dear readers? Is Days of Future Past going to rock our world? With Jennifer Lawrence reprising her role as Mystique, I’m pretty sure that most of us will find an excuse to plant our asses in a cinema seat next May!
