‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel Titled ‘Days of Future Past’?

http://screenrant.com/x-men-first-cl...t-kofi-177114/

There is word circulating that 20th Century Fox has reached out to the MPAA to secure a title for the studio’s forthcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class - and if reported accurately, that title is going to send a tidal wave of geek freak-outs across the Interwebs. The title in question is “Days of Future Past” – which remains one of the most famous and celebrated X-Men storylines of all time.

More interestingly, however: “Days of Future Past” was also a X-Men story that dealt with time travel and multiple timelines – meaning that director Matthew Vaughn and Fox could be (finally) trying to organize the convoluted continuity of the X-Men film franchise, using a tactic similar to what J.J. Abrams did with his Star Trek reboot.

Here is the quote from AICN reporter “The Kidd,” which first kicked off this rumor:

One of my little birds Weapon X recently dropped me some information that 20th Century Fox had recently registered the title DAYS OF FUTURE PAST with the MPAA Title Registration Bureau. The Bureau exists for studios and productions companies to stake their claims on certain titles that they intend to release and distribute, so that others can stray from using a similar title.

The title “Days of Future Past” is taken from the two-issue Uncanny X-Men comic book storyline written in 1981 by legendary X-Men writer/artist team Chris Claremont and John Byrne. In the story, the X-Men are trying to stop the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (led by Mystique) from killing an anti-mutant political figure named Senator Robert Kelly. This pivotal event creates a separate timeline in which the X-Men fail to stop the Kelly assassination, and as a result, mutants are hunted, imprisoned and exterminated by humanity. One X-Man from that future dystopia manages to travel back in time and warn the present day X-Men, who ultimately stop the assassination (though the two timelines both remain in existence).


The X-Men Battle Sentinels in 'Days of Future Past'

Given where X-Men: First Class left things, it’s easy to see how “Days of Future Past” could be reconfigured to focus on Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and his Brotherhood going after a key political figure, and the X-Men team being visited by a dimension-hopping mutant to be forewarned of what happens if they don’t stop the assassins. “Days of Future Past” also had the mutant-killing Sentinel robots, an older version of Wolverine, etc. – all of which would be awesome to see onscreen (not to mention a Terminator-style future dystopia). A “DoFP” plot could also open the door for the franchise to introduce time-hopping X-Men like Bishop or Cable to the mix.

In terms of the movies: “Days of Future Past” would give Vaughn and company a way to end all this continuity madness once and for all. If time travel and alternate timelines are successfully introduced into the X-Men movie universe, then that would be a perfect explanation for why the original X-Men trilogy (and Wolverine) have plot points that contradict First Class, while allowing all of the films to remain valid (unlike the ‘forget the past’ approach of the Spider-Man movie reboot).



“Days of Future Past” is an awesome story on its own – and I for one would welcome anything that could straighten out the movie continuity in satisfactory fashion. First Class was tormented all through development for not being a clear prequel OR reboot, but instead some weird amalgamation of both. I think a lot of X-Men fans would agree with the sentiment that it’s time to clean house. J.J. Abrams successfully cleared away decades of Star Trek continuity when he spun-off a new timeline for his 2009 reboot, which allowed him the freedom to tell his own stories using familiar characters.

Finally, introducing alternate timelines would give Fox many new options for how they approach their other upcoming X-Men films: including already-in-production sequel The Wolverine, and the already-planned X-Men 4. In fact, “First Class Continuity (FCC)” and/or “Original Trilogy Continuity (OTC)” could be terms we all start throwing around pretty soon. Comic book geekery at its best.

X-Men: Days of Future Past - if that is indeed the title – will be in theaters on July 18th, 2014.

They had a quick shot of a Sentinel the X-Men were fighting while in the Danger Room at the beginning of X3. IIRC, Colossus and Wolverine do the "fasball special" against the Sentinel.

Wolverine: Origins was OK. I liked Jackman and Schrieber (sp?) and Ryan Reynolds was great for the 10 minutes he was involved. They royally ****ed up the timeline having Gambit and Blob as 30-somethings in the 80s though, as well as Cyclops and Emma Frost in their late teens. Not to mention the shitcan they put on Deadpool. It has entertainment value but not really a good movie.

X2 and First Class on the other hand were pretty good movies. X2 was completely badass and I really can't think of anything bad to say about it, although it's been a while since I've seen it. Nightcrawler's opening scene, Colossus' first appearance in metal form, and for some reason the scene at Iceman's house with Pyro- all grade A stuff. First Class had the best acting with Fassbender and McAvoy. Magneto is low-key one of my favorite X-Men characters so it was good to see him being such a gangster. My only complaint was that the other mutants were lame (Banshee, tornado guy, and firefly stripper girl).

I'm surprised we've seen so many X-Men movies with no story revolving around the Sentinels. This could be really good if they don't **** it up.
I liked X-2 okay and first class wasn't a bad movie.. it was just a disaster in terms of continuity while blatantly tying itself in with the three X men movies. Both were entertaining.

I hated the wolverine movie as it was nothing but action movie cliche after action movie cliche. I mean I'm still getting both the skyward scream and walking away from an explosion in the same goddamn movie? What is this 1986? That one, more than any of the others, I felt was just a shitty film. I didn't like X-men when it came out and I hated the third film almost as much as that Wolverine movie.

The scene from Iceman's house was an allegory to Singer's homosexuality. It was a 'coming out of the closet' moment. I thought it was forced and came off rather silly personally.. and that was before I figured out why he shoehorned it in there.

As a fan of the series I'm disappointed it couldn't get represented better on the big screen. I loved the way the movies were casted for the most part (Halle Berry was horrible), but not so much the way they were written.

That was a shit Sentinel and pissed me off that is all they did..

Another thing that bothers me about the fastball special, how does Wolverine slice there heads off? His claws are not that big, it would take a bit for him to do that..

But I like that they are trying to tie them together this way.. Hopefully what would happen is the realities combine, and we get Scott, Professor and such back.. Basically all the dumb shit never happened in the first 3..

Well in Ultimate X-Men he was a teen as well. That's a pretty good age for his character, IMO. They say he's possibly an omega level mutant. If he could fully control his powers he'd be above guys like Magneto and Professor X but his age and mindset keeps him from fully realizing his potential.

Granted. But he's such a powerful mutant and to not showcase that ridiculous ability is dumb. They could make it look so sick with CGI now. Wolverine is played out it ain't even funny.

Loved X1 and X2. Thought X3 was OK, not as bad as everyone made it out to be, but still not very good. Thought Wolverine Origins was pretty bad. I also did not like First Class--too dark and serious, and something about it really bothered me (no heart?) Days of Future past could be excellent if done right, but Wolverine (and Kitty) are basically the main/only characters and Hugh Jackman would almost certainly have to be involved. They would have to get someone with star status to play the older Kitty --she was played by Ellen Page (Juno) in X3.

X3 was a ****ing disaster, if only for the way they absolutely raped and murdered Jean Grey being the Phoenix Force, especially after the way it was teased at the end of X2.

If done well it could be played excellently.

Like others have said I'd prefer a reboot. Iceman, Beast, Jean, Cyclops, and Angel were the FIRST X men.

I would love a reboot.

I don't much care about using the OG class. Those characters took the book on a ride to the cancellation line. Chris Clairmont saved X-men and made them what they are today when he changed the cast (Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Banshee, ect..) and made the dynamics more interesting and diverse.

I'd take a movie with that cast over the original X-men.

Banshee is a pillowbiter; I don't ever want to see him in an X Men film again.

My official badass X Team I'd like to see is Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Beast, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Colossus and Gambit. That's a lot of people to get screen time and character development so if need be take out Beast and keep Gambit as a secondary guy with not much screen time outside of action sequences. Maybe throw in Kitty just to have a love interest for Bobby.

If they do happen to go into the future I'd also like to see Forge, Bishop and Cable somehow. As well as Old Man Logan.

I want a lot.
