Bryan Singer defends X-Men: Days Of Future Past's mega cast

Exclusive: "I wanted a full cast"

In issue 218 of Total Film magazine, director Bryan Singer has hit back at criticisms regarding the ginormous cast of X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad - Singer revealed that he's not worried about the size of his cast, which includes the likes of Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and many (many) more.

"I wanted a full cast," he tells TF, "but I didn't want it to feel forced. We wanted to make it feel organic, not take a 'kitchen sink' approach but bring together characters with interesting powers."

He adds: "The movie has a lot of humour at the beginning, then as the stakes grow, it gets darker and darker..."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens in UK cinemas on 22 May 2014.
