Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

This isn't going to be a straight up adaption of the comic story. Singer and Kinberg have both stated that they used the comic story as the BASIS for their source material, so it will share several elements, but it will also further the story that began in "First Class" that Singer developed with Vaughn.

As mentioned before, I was under no impression that the entirety of the original cast would have major roles in the film, so I'm not too concerned that a couple roles have been reduced or cut.

The next trailer should be interesting since it should contain more action now that the reshoots and pick ups have been completed. Singer is currently doing ADR right now so this film should be getting locked pretty soon. We should get a track listing from John Ottman's score in the coming weeks as well, and will probably hear cues from it in the next trailer.

Maybe they're not trying to steal the light from the Captain, and Spiderman.

Well if the basic plot is about them trying to prevent this "horrible future" then we at least need to see and spend a bit of time in said future to see why, and how it came about, and what's been going on post X3 for 'the gang'

^ No doubt we'll get that from the "Future sequences" that we've already been teased with in the previous trailer and from the few promotional items we've seen.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Can someone explain something to me? I have read very few comics, but I enjoy the comic-book movies, so all I know about the source is what I have read here. The post-credits scene of The Wolverine seemed to be a lead-in for this. The future segments of DoFP are set in what seems to be a pretty post-apocalyptic future, but scene from The Wolverine appeared to be pretty normal. Is there a time jump? How does that scene connect to the upcoming movie?

I believe the post credits sequence in "The Wolverine" takes place two years after the film's actual events (which take place a year or so after "The Last Stand"). "X-Men: Days of Future" future is probably a few years beyond that, I've seen fan speculation like 2022 or something like that. The past scenes in "Days" take place in 1973.

Rumor-- Kelsey Grammer shot a cameo during re-shoots.

If true that is awesome news!

As for the future/present proportions, I've been assuming we'd probably spend about the first probably 10 or 15 minutes in the future, and then the rest would be mostly in the past with maybe a few couple minute scenes here or there in future. This is guessing based purely on how these kinds of time travel stories tend to work.

Kelsey Grammer is the perfect choice for Beast.

I think they'll spend more than 15 minutes in the future. The trailer shows the mansion, some kind of castle, a prison, an older Iceman along with some new faces (that will need time introducing), and a church. Plus...

I suppose they could do something like in the 90s cartoon version of DOFP, have "the traveler", explain to the people in the past what happens in the future while we the audience see for ourselves.
ie. like Bishop does, 4:10-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc_o6wv0DK0

Always found that bit pretty haunting as a kid. Great series.
(esp the ending to that episode. "Because... it's been, magnatized!")



Ha, the only stupid thing about those episodes is "the modern" day X-Men is set in our modern day at the time, as it mentions its the 90s. I always found the graves of the X-Men part of the montage freaky as a kid, but if you look at the dates they died...
Cyclops 2032
Rogue 2033
Storm 2021
So if Cylcops was what, 30 in the show, he was still nearly 70 when he died! That's actually not that bad. Guess they don't treat you that bad in the Sentinel camps
