Bryan Singer hints at all-CGI character in X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Is he talking about Sentinels?

Bryan Singer has been fairly tight-lipped with regards to upcoming sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but a recent interview with MTV includes an intriguing tidbit about some of the technology he plans to use.

While discussing the motion-capture techniques used to create the giants in Jack The Giant Slayer, Singer was asked whether he might employ the same technology again in the future. His response was a tease and a half…

“I definitely want to use this technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in X-Men," he explained. “I don't wanna say how, yet, but I'm definitely using some of this technology on X-Men which I never used in any of the other X-Men films.

“That's the thing I don't want to talk about,” sais Singer when pushed on whether he’d be creating a fully-CGI character. “I'm not sure. I'm doing research on it now.”

Given the source material the story is adapted from, it could be that Singer is exploring the best way to bring the Sentinels to life on the big screen. The towering, mutant-policing robots would be of a similar scale to the giants and would probably have to be CGI creations to appear even remotely convincing…

Co-starring James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and a whole raft of familiar faces from the earlier films, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 18 July 2014.

      It would be awesome to finally see Wolverine demolish a Sentinel.

      Sentienls would be awesome, but would mo-cap be necessary for them? Surely their movements are more 'robotic' and would not need a human to mimic their behaviour - unless he's gona do something different with them.

      I am interested to see how Singer plans to incorporate the CG material into Days of Future Past, and it could be great if he does it right. It would be interesting if instead of using it on a Sentinels, he created some new sort of mutant using the technology. I can’t wait to find out more, and to try to cope with my excitement I have been watching everything X-Men using Blockbuster @Home from DISH. I love that it’s so quick to just update my cue online, and then get my movies delivered just as fast in the mail. With my late work shift at DISH, I appreciate being able to come home and watch a new movie. But I also really love that if I forget to send back a movie I have recently watched, I have the option of unlimited exchanges at a Blockbuster store. Watching the movies again it’s pretty amazing what Singer is attempting to accomplish, but I have confidence that with the right technology and script, he is the man to pull this feat off.
