‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ – Get a First Look at the Script!

X-Men First Class
20th Century Fox

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!

Last night, Singer tweeted on his way back from the New Zealand premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ the following message to all the ‘X-Men’ fans out there:

Settling down for my 14 hour flight with #Xmen Days of Future Past. Let’s hope I don’t leave it in the plane.

Unfortunately, Singer didn’t leave it on the plane for us all to read but he did take a photo of the first page of the script. And what does it show us?

Well, not much sadly. It’s not a big action sequence or some juicy dialogue but instead the movie starts with this quote from Charles Darwin.

As new species are formed through natural evolution, others will become rarer and rarer, and finally extinct. The forms which stand in closest competition with those undergoing modification and improvement will naturally suffer most.

Ominous much? The quote refers to the ‘Days of Future Past’ plot that involves the assassination of a U.S. Senator by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (this leads to anti-mutant hysteria with mutants being rounded up and kept in internment camps).

As we previously reported, ‘Days of Future Past’ will be a mash-up of the ‘First Class’ universe along with the classic ‘X-Men’ films as both casts (including Hugh Jackman as Wolverine) will join for one massive film.
