‘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.

Havok is the (much more interesting and enjoyable) brother of Cyclops.

Blink isn't born for 40 more years.

I could go on but the point is they just pick and choose characters they like with no regard for how it all fits...

Yep. Marvel and DC both are setting up to do it again this year with Marvel's Secret Wars and DC's Convergence story lines.

I like that they're redoing it like this. I don't know alot about the actors, but they better make Cyclops look like a badass this time around instead of a pussy. Even though they reset the timeline, killing him and Professor X off in The Last Stand will always leave a shit taste in my mouth.

It'll be cool to see how they explore the Phoenix in this one trying to get out. I think if they left it out its be a huge disservice.

I probably should post this in the podcast thread, but all X-Men fans should listen to "Rachel and Miles Explain the X-Men."

****ing great podcast explaining all the intricacies of the X-Men storylines. It's really, really good. Hosts are entertaining and their commentary on the storylines is priceless. And informative.

Since there isn't a ****ing search function anymore.....I can't find the X-Men Apocalypse thread that keg started.

So I'll just put this here.

http://www.slashfilm.com/nightcrawler-x-men-apocalypse/

Nightcrawler is joining X-Men: Apocalypse and this time, he’s a bit younger. Director Bryan Singer announced Tuesday that Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, Let Me In) has been cast in the film as the agile mutant. He was previously seen in X2: X-Men United as played by Alan Cumming. Read more about Nightcrawler being in X-Men Apocalypse below.

So Smit-McPhee joins a growing cast to the Summer 2016 film which already has added Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life) as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp (Drumline: A New Beat) as Storm. Rose Byrne is also returning.

In the comics Nightcrawler is a complex guy — in fact he’s often the beating heart, and sometimes the moral center, of the X-Men. He’s even been a father figure to some younger mutants, helping out the very same newcomers to Xavier’s school who are initially put off by his appearance. He’s the group’s swashbuckling elf, a guy who isn’t really at home in the modern world. We saw only shades of that in the previous film version of the character, and hopefully Kodi Smit-McPhee will be able to find more of that character.

Here’s a recap of the film from a previous article:

X-Men: Apocalypse will be set in the 1980s. Turner, Sheridan, and Shipp are playing the younger versions of the superheroes played by Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Halle Berry in the original X-Men trilogy. They join fellow franchise newcomer Oscar Isaac, who’s playing the titular villain Apocalypse. In addition, Channing Tatum is rumored, but not yet confirmed, to make his debut as Gambit.

The film also brings back the core cast from X-Men: First Class: James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast. Hugh Jackman is in talks to return as Wolverine.

X-Men: Apocalypse promises to close out the First Class trilogy with “mass destruction.” The character of Apocalypse is an “ancient” mutant born thousands of years ago. The storyline will also prominently feature Mystique and her relationships with Beast and Magneto. Simon Kinberg wrote the script based on a story by himself, Singer, Michael Dougherty, and Dan Harris.

X-Men: Apocalypse starts shooting this spring in Canada. It opens May 27, 2016.

Nightcrawler was my favorite X-Man when I was reading the comics. I didn't like the way he was portrayed in X2 so I hope they get it right this time.

He's always been one of my favorites as well. I think teleportation is the coolest mutation..

I actually loved him in X2. That opening sequence was amazing at the time.
