Mark Millar says to expect Days of Future Past to be X-Men meets Terminator

Oct. 19, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Mark Millar, the consultant to Fox on their Marvel properties, is feeling good about X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. He recently shared some vague details about the project to SFX and they sound like we may finally be getting the X-MEN movie we have all been waiting for.

According to Millar, "Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. It's X-MEN meets THE TERMINATOR...You've got robots, you've got time travel, you've got superheroes - it's got everything in one film."

Wait, did he say robots? That, to me and every comic loving person on the planet, means Sentinels! As everyone knows, the "Days of Future Past" story follows a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An older Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into the younger, present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.

While I am usually weary of sequels being bigger and more expensive than their predecessors, in the case of this new X-MEN franchise, I am on board. Matthew Vaughn is a damn fine director and I loved the hell out of X-MEN; FIRST CLASS. Millar seems to be saying all of the right things as well.

"Cost-wise it's going to go up, and ambitious-wise it's gone up," Millar said. "But Vaughn can handle it. Vaughn made Kick-Ass for $28 million."

What do you think of these latest comments? Are you excited for possible Sentinel action?

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is slated to open on July 18, 2014.

i guess you could (and they probably will) include cable in this film. or bishop for that matter.it's not like the film will actually come close to adhereing to the original story in any way. not that there's anything wrong with that.:)could also see forge being in a film like this. also I want to say that it's unfair that the only film gambit was in was that p.o.s film that was wolverine and he wasn't even really played right ( see "p.o.s film").

sounds real good, i just hope they beef up the roster some. as good a movie first class was i found the xmen roster pretty weak on that one. i mean prof x was mobile, and magneto was a xman for most of that film so they really carried most of the weight. besides them i mean banshee?really? havok wasn't really all that impressive but has potential. mystique? she wont be there. you need the heavy hitters for a film like this. cyclops, wolverine, colossus. i mean shit he had what 20 secs of screen

The more I hear about this, the more it sounds like the X-Men film i've been waiting for. X2 and X-Men first class were good but they never quit got to the awesomeness that are the X-Men. I don't want to get my hopes up but the nerdgasms have started. Also, this leaves a lot of opportunity to use actors from the previous series. I do think you need new characters for the young team, they were by far the weakest part of first class. give me the original team Cyclopes, Jean Grey, Beast( he

I know that throws off the old story idea but it wouldnt bother me.

It would be cool to see x-men fight sentinels, but I'd be happier if we knew which x-men would be doing the fighting. The cast from first class? Recasting younger versions of Cyclopse and Jean? The cast from the x-men trilogy brought back in time? Will wolverine ever come back? So many questions.

I think Wolvie will play a supporting role...I really believe Jackman will still be involved for a few more years as long as he can keep up physically. All he really needs to do is call Sly's "doctor" and he'll be going on 50 and looking 25...
