At the end of The Last Stand, Xavier is alive. Well, however, might be a different story, and there's also the question of whether he retained his powers.

The man in the bed was played by Patrick Stewart, so he does look like Xavier, whether it makes sense or not.

But didn't X-Men the last stand end with things kind of hunky dorry between regular humans and mutants?

How the hell do you go from appointing Hank McCoy as the U.S. representative to the United Nations to unleashing giant robots to commit genocide again mutants.
How do you go from the USA arming Mujahadeen fighters in Afghanistan in the 1980s to Al-Queda attacking American soil in 2011?
The U.S. supporting dictators in the Middle East and Al-Queda being a group of nutty religious extremists. Though I'm sure theirs other stuff in there too



Paranoia about communism added with the Iron Curtain and Stalin basically telling the rest of the allies "screw you" about reuniting Germany aka putting a giant freaking wall around half of Germany, but again there is probably other stuff that contributed.



Winning the Cold War I imagine at least on the U.S. and western Europe's side and the Russians at that point having more important stuff to worry about like and economy in the toilet.

and now cold warriors again?
wait what?

Not quite as dramatic as giant genocidal robots, admittedly but the status quo rarely remains so for long.
Yeah for international relations not Civil Rights issues which tend to go from one group not liking another to acceptance/not giving a crap anymore that their in the group, so unless we're going to restart Jim Crow laws and bring Don't Ask Don't Tell back not remotely close to mutants suddenly going from at least somewhat accepted to being hunted down like dogs.
Calm down dear. The civil rights analogy only goes so far; racial minorities in the USA don't contain individuals with the ability to enter the White House at will or use the Golden Gate Bridge as a weapon.

And it'd only a movie. No need to get quite so worked up about it. Hell, we're dealing with a continuity wherein the Cuban Missile Crisis involved a fight between mutants...

PS - as for the cold warriors thing - haven't you heard the way John McCain and other American politicians speak about Vladimir Putin?

The non-future parts of the movie will be set in 1973.

I wonder if the "future" segments will actually be modern day?

The modern day of Days of Future Past in the comic were set in 2014...so I'm sure that could still be in tact for the film. Singer talked about the sequel being possibly set in the 70's early on too.

1973? The non-uniform fashion's going to be fun! Be great if Singer slipped in a Luke Cage cameo. Would seem... so right.

I would love to see an X-Men movie set a little later than that-- mid 70's to early eighties set during the disco craze. I would totally love to see Dazzler fully decked out in her full disco gear on-stage.

So they decided not to go with the JFK assassination stuff? Good.

Yeah, I'm glad they decided against that idea, but I am surprised by the 10+ year time jump. I wonder how they'll handle that in regards to the younger actors.

Oh, I wish, but I think Marvel have the Cage rights. There was some talk of Marvel allowing Avengers tower to appear in last year's Amazing Spider-man, but this sees unlikely.

Now, if Fox had agreed to let Joe Carnahan do his 1970s-set Daredevil movie and retained the rights to hornhead...

They're all older in real life than they were playing in XMFC anyway, so I don't see it being a problem.
