'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Spoiler: What's Going Down in Paris?Jacob Hall |
Like with any modern superhero movie, we fully expect that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will feature all kinds of chaos, mayhem and destruction. The only real questions are when and where the city-leveling action will take place. Director Bryan Singer has shared another new image from the set, and it suggests that some mutant action is heading to Paris, France ... and that the city probably won't be able to shrug off what happens to it.
First of all, here's Singer's tweet:

Not big enough? Don't squint. We've got you covered:
That right there is official White House stationary with some ominous words. Behind it is a star-spangled set-up for what is most likely a press conference of some kind. What could possibly happen in Paris that would force the President of the United States to make a big speech? Since this is 'X-Men,' we can be all-but-certain that the "threat" at the center of this discussion is a mutant (or mutants). Also, the main villain in 'Days of Future Past' is apparently Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), the creator of the mutant-hunting sentinels. Who wants to bet that the President is going to endorse their creation in this scene?
While we're speculating, we can't help but think there is some kind of connection between this shot and a series of images we first saw earlier this month, depicting Magneto and Beast in the middle of a vicious fight of some kind. It may be dorky to see the two characters fighting in a fountain and immediately think "Paris!," but are those pics our first glimpse at what may be one of the film's major set pieces?
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is set to open on July 18, 2014.
