'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Preview Coming to Comic-Con?Nick Romano |
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is sounding more and more like the most "epic" movie for lovers of this superhero team, and that's using Bryan Singer's own words. It's gonna have sentinels, Peter Dinklage as the main villain, 'X-Men' veterans mingled with the cast of 'First Class,' and the list of amenities just keeps on growing. And just when we couldn't be even more pumped than we already are, we might (repeat might) have just learned when the first preview of this ultimate 'X-Men' movie will be hitting.
Director Bryan Singer has been keeping us up-to-date with the latest tid bits on 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' tweeting out cast additions like Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, and releasing behind-the-scenes photos. So now what does the father of 'X-Men' movies have to tell us?
His most recent tweet with an accompanying set pic reads:

So folks, it looks like we might be getting our first look at 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' come this summer when San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing. At the very least, it seems we'll be getting a panel. We can remember back in the day of 'X2' seeing that first video preview of Professor X and Magneto playing chess together from the CC screen, and now we're hoping he'll have a similar sort of preview to show us this year, July 18-21.
So far 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will include a bevy of veteran and newbie 'X'-cast members like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Anna Paquin -- and those are just members of the 'X-Men.' Peter Dinklage is said to be playing the main antagonist of the film, which follows the future self of Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat as she travels back in time to warn of a life-altering attack on Senator Kelly by the Brotherhood. There's so much going on in this movie, we can barely contain the excitement.
So what do you think? Do you think this means we'll be seeing a preview of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' at Comic-Con? Oh, and in case you missed it, here's a pic of the Professor X wheelchairs being used for both Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy, playing old and young Charles Xavier, respectively:
