Remember when, in Brett Ratner's 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' Cyclops, himself being a mainstay in the 'X-Men' universe, met his end offscreen at the hands of a mentally unstable Phoenix/Jean Grey? Fans held on to the hope that he might still return to the big screen somehow in Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' especially after James Marsden was spotted flying back from the Montreal set with former co-star Halle Berry (playing Storm in the new movie). However, this was one event Singer could not change.

We've known for some time that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' would feature the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots, since Fox creative consultant Mark Millar let the news slip back in February. Since then, Peter Dinklage has revealed he'll be playing the inventor of these insidious monsters in the film and a recent viral campaign has already started teasing them. But now, director Bryan Singer has shared an image that tells us two very cool things about the Sentinels as they'll be seen in the film. First, they actually built one for the movie. Second, they will be huge!

Ever since 'X-Men: The Last Stand' offered a brief cinematic rendering of a giant Sentinel robot with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine slicing its head off in the danger room, 'X-Men' fans have been craving a full-body look at these mutant-hunting bots. Thankfully, prayers have been answered as these icons of the comic books have become the forefront of Fox's marketing for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'

Next year, Marvel's mutant superhero known as Wolverine will turn 40. That's four decades of stories. Four decades of being one of the most popular comic book characters on the planet. Four decades of amazing comics and more than a few lousy comics. And, of course, four decades of trivia.

'The Wolverine' Director James Mangold on Making a New Kind of Superhero Movie

'The Wolverine' is not what you expect. It is very much a self-contained, somewhat “smaller” superhero movie. More straightforward thriller/noir/espionage film than CGI-heavy slugfest. It's less of a surprise, however, when you look at director James Mangold's body of work.
From 'Cop Land' to 'Girl, Interrupted' to '3:10 To Yuma' to 'Walk the Line' to 'Knight and Day' (which I really liked, by the way) to 'Identity' to 'Heavy,' he's had a go at nearly every genre. Now he's teamed up with Hugh Jackman, taking Logan from atop a hermit's mountain to the bullet trains of Japan.
I had the good fortune to speak with Mangold recently, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to movies.

So, the rumor has been for quite some time that 'Game of Thrones' actor Peter Dinklage would be playing Bolivar Trask in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' It turns out that rumor is correct. And that rumor about Omar Sy as Bishop? Also true.

The Comic-Con 2013 panel from 20th Century Fox was pegged as a must-see event at the convention; not only were fans foaming at the mouth for the latest offerings from 'The Wolverine' and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' -- the former prepping for release on July 26 -- but also for some sort of reveal for Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
