Bryan Singer Talks Magneto's Arc in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Plot details on X-Men: Days of Future Past are slim so far, but we do know it will involve time travel to a certain extent and has the largest ensemble cast of any of the films thus far. In an interview with Digital Spy, Bryan Singer was asked about Magneto's arc in the upcoming film and whether his morality struggle, as seen in X-Men: First Class, will still play a role in the film, something which Singer essentially confirmed.

"Because I have both Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender in the picture, you'll deal with both sides of that point of view and it really explores the relationship between Xavier and Magneto and the evolution of that relationship, where it came from and where it's going."

Also in their interview, James McAvoy revealed he doesn't know if he'll have to be bald for the upcoming sequel. Check out the full video at the source.

Set for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

The film's cast includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Omar Sy and Peter Dinklage.



Bryan Singer and the creation of battle plans for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

According to Latino Review on March 11, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director, Bryan Singer, tweeted photos of him mapping out battle scenes for the movie. Singer is shown with his crew, photos strewn about the table, planning and creating what could be epic battles for what he has in store for the X-Men. The "tweet" was entitled "Planning Future Battles".

It appears not only Singer, but Marc Webb, the director of "The Amazing Spider Man 2", is in an all out Twitter war with each other involving their scrap book like montage as their projects progress through out the months.

One could possibly say that such friendly rivalry could be a great support system to keep each other motivated with fun during their work.

The all-star cast will entail Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, "The Hunger Games’" Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy.


"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is scheduled to be released on July 18, 2014.
