Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)
The more I think about this movie and the more info we get casting-wise, the more I think this needs to be done Yesterday's Enterprise-style, with something in the past creating a ripple effect that leads to the dystopian future, with the crux of the story being going back in time to prevent that ripple effect event from happening. Based on what First Class did, I think the most organic ripple effect event to use would be the assassination of JFK, with the idea being that the truth was classified back in the 60s and then exposed at some point following the events of The Last Stand, thus creating a backlash against mutants that results in the DoFP dystopian future, and sending one or more members of the future X team back to the past to prevent the assassination.
I know Vaughn had mentioned wanting to have Magneto be responsible for killing JFK, but given Ian McKellen' s return for DoFP, I think you might need to have a different mutant culprit.
