X-Men: Days Of Future Past confirmed by Bryan Singer

First Class sequel gets a title

X-Men director/producer Bryan Singer has confirmed the title for the X-Men: First Class follow-up will be X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

The director spoke to IGNrecently and offered an update on the high-profile sequel, revealing the film’s title and production status.

“It’s being written right now and it will start shooting in a few months,” he says. “It’s going to be very ambitious.

“It’s called Days Of Future Past and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things. I just don’t want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I’m totally excited about it.”

Days Of Future Past is also the title of an ambitious ‘80s X-Men comic that involved criss-crossing alternate timelines, future dystopias and a plot involving serious social unrest.

If that’s the comic Vaughn will be using as a basis for his sequel, we’re very excited indeed – not least because those alternate timelines could cross into Singer’s own X-Men films in extraordinary ways.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens on 17 July 2014.

      Days of Future Past was the title of a storyline in the comic. I think this will be tricky to pull off especially as the sequel to First Class as it seems a bit of a leap even for a film with mutant superheros. Not sure how they will do the alternate timeline thing which to me would have seemed to have been a couple of films off for this franchise. Will be interesting to see how this works...

      I would like to see them tie the films to the Avengers universe, but i'm guessing there's an issue with the rights?? - If not, hope they can tie it into the original trilogy. Loved how Vaughan filmed the opening scene to carry on from Singer's original

      Yes 20th Century Fox own the rights to X-Men while Marvel own the rights to certain characters like Iron Man, Hulk etc. Sony own the rights to Spiderman.

      I would love to see a "Days of Future Past" film, but in order to execute this within the Singer Xmen universe, the story would have to be so muddled, stretched, and awkwardly forced. This, again, makes me wonder why they didn't just launch X-Men: First Class as a complete reboot instead of a prequel to the Singer X-Men movies,.

      Erm, erm, erm, erm.... Erm, erm... Erm, erm, erm. He's pretty difficult to watch. Just please don't bring Wolverine into it. He's terrible.
