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.

This is not confirmed. This was apparently reported on a Russian news site. The above site so far is the only one that I see carrying the story.

i really hope they don't use that idea of Magneto killing Kennedy. seems about as silly as Roddenberry wanting Spock to kill Kennedy.

That was Vaughn's own personal idea and merely a suggestion. Singer had a different suggestion I believe.

Ideas aside, I'm thrilled that this series is moving forward. I've been thrilled about the reboot since I saw First Class.

Except that Sen. Robert Edward Kelly (the guy whose murder sparked the mutant registration act) was based loosely (at least originally) on Sen. Edward Kennedy (except for the whole get drunk and kill an aide part, anyway).

Nothing here to back it up:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Kelly_(comics)

The name of the character was chosen by Chris Claremont, in honour of his Bard College professor, the poet Robert Kelly. The latter has confirmed the connection between the two names in interviews among his students.[citation needed] Senator Kelly has been likened to real-life U.S. senator and anti-Communist crusader Joseph McCarthy. [1][2]
If the X-Men were meant to reflect the Civil Rights Struggle, it would seem odd to name a character opposed to the activists after a Senator generally associated with progressive causes (as indeed were his brothers, in particularly the one with the same first name as Senator Kelly).

Yeah, FC definitely set the series back on the right track. Hopefully this and The Wolverine will continue the trend.

Despite some continuity problems, the PTB behind First Class do not consider it to be a reboot, but rather a prequel to the other X-Men films. At the present time, there has been no indication that this stance has changed.

It remains to be seen, though, whether or not Origins: Wolverine and The Last Stand will be acknowledged or ignored now that Bryan Singer has renewed his affiliation with the franchise, and I would expect that DoFP will give us a good indicator when it comes to the latter.

Kelly was mostly painted as a simple grounded guy that was decent but afraid of the future he couldn't understand. Bob really wasn't thinking concentration camps when he introduced the mutant Registration Act, in his mind in the beginning he thought it was a parallel to gun control legislation.

I mean, was Tony Stark seen as a modern day NAZI for introducing and enforcing the Superpowers Registration Act?

(Yes, Yes he was.)

Magneto totally explains the magic Bullet theory.

If true, this sounds like a way to soft-reboot the franchise in a very similar fashion to what was done to Star Trek. That is to say if the future time traveller originates from some point after 'The Last Stand' and by the end of the film has succeeded in changing history then any future films should be freed of any continuity entanglements.

With both Rebbecca Romjin and Hugh Jackman reprising their "classic" roles in the First class, I don't understand the confusion?

You're just pissed that I started this topic before you did.

And with FC paralyzing Chuck before he loses his hair or meets Jean Grey, neither do I.
