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

I've also made the point several times in the thread that Singer is in most likely adapting this to fit with the established X-Men Cinematic Universe and it won't be a straight up adaptation...but it's still important to point out who may or maybe alive. Of course he very well could be using the characters differently in the film than they were used in the two part comic story, or even be using new characters for all we know. I've made this point before.

Good.

...but it's still important to point out who may or maybe alive.
No, it's not. How does that even follow from the first part of what you said?

Of course he very well could be using the characters differently in the film than they were used in the two part comic story, or even be using new characters for all we know. I've made this point before.
So it's useful to know who is and isn't alive in the original story, even though you admit it has no bearing on the adaptation? How does that make sense?

I never said that it would have no bearing with what Singer was doing, I said that he could very well be adapting the story to fit with what has already been established.

As for making sense it's early and I've been up all night

I don't think Singer is planning an exact verbatim adaptation of the original comic by any means (how could he possibly fit it in with the cinematic X-verse).

But given how little we know about the movie at this stage, I think it's interesting and fun to compare how the movie may or may not differ from the comic. One way we can do that is to compare how, if at all, the roles of characters from the comicverse may vary from that in the film version. I think for the most part people are just musing out loud about what direction Singer may take. I don't think anyone is saying that the film version has to conform with that of the comics, in terms of who's in it or anything else.

Singer will do what he does best: Pick out the wheat out from the chaff (there is plenty of both to be found in the comicsverse, let's be honest) and turn it into cinematic gold, just like he did X2.*




* Of course, that isn't necessarily the case if you're a DC comics icon...

It's starting to look like the "Days Of Future Past" comic cover


Note that Collosus actor Daniel Cudmore has been added to the cast

The cast will soon be wandering around my neck of the woods. Much of it is being filmed in and around Montreal. Wonder if I'll bump into anyone famous downtown in the next few months?

Out of curiosity, anyone heard if Romijn will be in this one? I'd like to see how they'll reconcile the sympathetic character from FC with the hate filled nutter we saw in X1-3.

Romijn already made a cameo in FC, so I don't see why she wouldn't agree to another in DOFP.

Blink!!! Daniel Cudmore is back as Colossus as well! Most ambitious comic book movie to date, largest ensemble as well! This is going to be awesome.

Blink? I'm not familiar with that one...but then my knowledge of the lore is pretty much limited to the old 90's cartoon.

I wasn't questioning her willingness, just if there's any indication that she'll actually be in it.

I suspect its likely. Cameos are never announced. Just given her powers she could appear briefly in the future sequences, though Mystique would have more screen as other characters.
