'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is going to be one hell of an 'X-Men' movie, melding together the original mutants, like Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman, with the updated 'First Class' cast. Now 'Game of Thrones' star Peter Dinklage is the first newbie added to the franchise in a previously unknown role, but the first details of his character have leaked out!
X-Men: Days of Future Past
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has been casting many of the old 'X-Men' trilogy stars to join with the new 'X-Men: First Class' stars for one mega X-Men crossover. Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellan and Hugh Jackman have all agreed to return but Halle Berry - one of the big stars of the original films - might be the one left out in the dark. So why would Berry not return as Storm?
It's long been rumored that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' would not only be utilizing an absurdly large cast but also featuring something fans have been waiting to see brought to life on the big screen: Sentinels. Those nasty robots have given the X-Men so much grief throughout the entire comic book series, and now you'll be happy to know that they will indeed be heavily featured in Bryan Singer's latest movie installment.
Bryan Singer has a new movie on the horizon, 'Jack the Giant Slayer,' but let's be realistic: any lucky sonofagun who speaks to the man while he's out promoting his latest is going to be far more interested in the impending 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Thankfully, Singer appears to be pretty jazzed about it, as is evident in a new interview with Empire Magazine, where he touts a truly epic sequel and reveals how James Cameron -- yes, the King of the World -- figures into the project.
We knew that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was going to be a time travel story that would somehow merge the universes of the original 'X-Men' films and 'X-Men: First Class,' but the most recent casting news suggests something more epic than we could have possibly imagined. A cavalcade of past mutant superheroes have officially joined the cast, deepening an already absurdly great ensemble.
Hugh Jackman likes to talk. He likes to talk a lot. You can't blame the guy for getting excited about his projects (he does get to play a superhero on a regular basis, after all), but he's getting close to Michael Caine levels of hype-infused bean-spilling. The Jackman "Talking Things Up Tour" continued this week, with the star answering a few questions about the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is gonna be one hell of a superhero movie! The first installment of the 'First Class' series -- which starred Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor Xaviar), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) -- did gangbusters for fans of the comic books, but with the father of the franchise Bryan Singer on board to direct, he's combining these guys with the cast of 'X-Men' movies past to form one giant X-Men blowout. And just in case you were wondering, that also now officially includes Hugh Jackman!
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' won't begin shooting until April, 2013 but that doesn't mean we can't already start bringing you photos from behind-the-scenes! Director Bryan Singer (who also directed the first two 'X-Men' films) revealed a first look at the film's finished script yesterday and what does it tell us about the film? Let's find out!
