X-Men: Days Of Future Past: Comic Legend Chris Claremont Asked To Consult
Director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on one of the most famous stories from Chris Claremont’s legendary X-Men run, and the writer told MTV Geek he’s been asked to provide some degree of consultation on the 2014 film.
“I’ve been asked to kind of, maybe be around for a little consultation,” Claremont told the website. “I won’t have a lot of input at all, but it’s nice that they asked.”
Claremont — who in the same article said he “loved” this summer’s The Wolverine, despite expressing disappointment with the third act last month in a Vulture interview — said that, no matter his level of involvement, he’s excited to see the film.
“I’m looking forward to seeing it on screen,” Claremont said. “It was fun to write, and fun to see what John Byrne and Terry Austin did, and now we get to see what it’s like on the big screen. So it will be fun.”
The writer is also more than open to another on-screen cameo (he was seen mowing a lawn in 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand), saying to MTV Geek, “I wish they would ask. I would love it. It would be cool.”
Ben Foster would like to take on the Angel role in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
According to Screen Rant on Aug. 14, during an interview with Ben Foster for his role in "Ain't Them Bodies Saints", he was asked if he would like to reprise his role as Angel in "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Unfortunately, Foster will not be returning for the Marvel film. He wasn't even offered the part, but he would be up for it if offered the role.
“Yeah, sure. If they gave me some feathers, I’d jump around, s**t on some buses".
The thought of Foster's character does bring thoughts back to "X-Men: The Last Stand" where one of the problems with that film was the fact Angel was an underused character. Though he did make quite the introduction when he decided to shamelessly spread his wings and escape his way out a Worthington Industries window.
So far, there's a viral campaign for the Bryan Singer film in regards to giving teases into the opposing forces that the X-Men will be facing: The Sentinels. So far a website of Trask Industries has been established as well as blue prints of the latest in Sentinel technology.
