X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)
X-Men: First Class Sequel Confirmed To Be Titled X-Men: Days Of Future Past
News first broke back in June that Fox had apparently registered the title X-Men: Days of Future Past with the MPAA, intending for it to be subtitle for the follow-up to X-Men: First Class. Thankfully for X-Men fans (and those with access to Wikipedia) that reveal inadvertently hinted at potential plot points. Well, according to a brief report on Russian news site Film Business Today, those rumours appeared to have been well founded.
Well, that’s about all the concrete news we’ve gotten regarding an official title, so about those plot points I mentioned? Well, “Days of Future Past” is a two-arc issue from the comics where Kitty Pryde (the sneaky mutant who was portrayed by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand) transfers her mind to her past self in order to help alter a series of events that lead to a mass mutant round-up and subsequent mass imprisonment. It would only be safe to assume that Fox and director Mathew Vaughan plan to use at least some elements from the source material, which means we’re in for an awesome time-travelling angle.
