Bryan Singer tweets a picture of some chairs and talks more on X-Men: Days of Future Past

Feb. 18, 2013by:

I like Bryan Singer. I really love X-Men. But the more and more I hear about X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, the more I start to wonder about how it will all end up. We've got a ton of cast members returning, and some interesting material that the story is based on. The film will go forward in time, then back, then forward. Sounds like a job for Bishop (it is).

Anyway, for those unsure of Singer's abilities due to past indiscretions with the X-Men, the director wanted to let everyone know that:

This movie's gonna be not only quite epic, 'Days of Future Past,' but it also takes place in completely different times than the 'X Men' movies have taken place. There'll be new technology, new things we haven't seen before in 'X-Men' films. Certain characters and certain story and certain drama that hasn't be done yet, so it's not so much sequel. It's more of its own kinda thing.

When the interviewer used the word "reset" in reference to the past installments, Singer responded with a smile and this:

"I'll be able to correct a few things."

Oh, and I thought you guys might like the latest from Singer's Twitter account:

Correct a few things?

Like going back in time to stop the birth of Brett Ratner? Which, in turn, would save the lives of Cyclops, Xavier, and Jean Gray....I think that's a good trade off, no?

Is it me...or is sites like this that decide which directors to big up...when to diss them...followed by an army of sheep people...who low and behold have the same opinion. People that somehow forgot the good that these guys ever did...or alternatively...in some cases...never did...as it was just a case of them being overrated in the first place. Singer...M. Night Shyamalan and Cage are three people who I recall having Apple Fan boy kind of devotion thrown at them at one point...and then

Night Shyamalan and Cage are three people who I recall having Apple Fan boy kind of devotion thrown at them at one point...and then things turn - with highly qualified no bodies dissing anything they then touch before even seeing the finished product...coz, I guess it's so cool to diss.

The only Singer movies I've ever seen are the first two X-Men (like most comic book movies...are simply... good / enjoyable....nothing more - certainly not on the Aliens/Terminator/Die Hard classic level) and Superman which actually sucked....but not Green Lantern sucked...that's on a whole different level of suckness...the comic book fan in me...tries to always remember the best scenes of the movie and hold on to it...like Superman catching the plane...GL had no such moments. Anyhoo, I digress, I never got caught up in Apple Fan Boy love for Singer on the count of not seeing many of his movies...but is that why so many people turn on people they cherished? Embarrassed that they rated them so highly in the first place...and at the time...wouldn't hear a word against them?

Nolan, JGL and Renner are three people that are currently getting the Apple Fan Boy treatment and in time, I'm sure they'll live long enough to see themselves become despised like those that have held such favour before. In fact, I think Renner is already getting in...and JGL is beginning to get it.. albeitjust whispers right now.

Whilst Superman sucked, can someone explain to me what Singer has actually done to merit the dissing he gets with regard to directing this X-Men movie? He didn't direct X-Men 3 which despite its many flaws, I enjoyed.

It's kinda funny the bigging up films like Snakes on a Plane and Gangster Squad got...then go the way of the dodo when they hit the cinemas.

Don't be ridiculous. People have always liked Jessica Alba and have never turned on her. Same with Halle Berry: people loved her when she went topless in Swordfish and they didn't turn on her when she won an Oscar. Did they? Well, maybe. Okay, I'm being sarcastic.

Don't know, I still think it's kind of weird Singer is doing this sequel.

For the fuck of it I checked out his IMDb page, and I was really surprised to see how few films he has actually directed. I mean, his masterpiece The Usual Suspects was only his 2nd feature, then came Apt Pupil and then already the X-Men trilogy. So, thus far, in my opinion, he has made (just) 3 great films; The Usual Suspects, X2 and Superman Returns.

He should to team up with Christopher McQuarrie again.

Next I'd love to see either some hint of The Sentinel or Cyclops' ruby quartz visor (assuming that he's back).

I agree

Cyclops needs to comeback and be a critical part to the film. Everyone who has only watched the cartoon hates on him so much but he's such a great, not to mention very important , character to the X-men universe. Truly much of it revolves around his gene pool more than anyone else (i.e. Cable, Rachel, Corsair, Alex, Vulcan.... the whole Summer clan)

Bishop is not originally part of this story...

Considering most of the movies have actually used the comic stories as guidelines, Bishop IS NOT a part of "Days of Future Past" - it was Kitty Pryde who projected herself back in time to get help - considering Ellen Page is returning as Kitty Pryde, she could be the catalyst, and it would save having to introduce a character that would have to be introduced (and only appeared in the much later cartoon version of the comic book).

On the other hand, I HOPE they'll bring Rachel in, and, as FOX owns Fantastic Four as well, Franklin Richard...
They have both HUGE importance in this story and possible repercussions in possible sequels...

I want to know if Marsden is coming back as Cyclops. And if he is, Synger needs to actually give Cyclops something to do this time around. No more second fiddle bullshit.

That's the least Synder could do for Marsden...
After all Cyke's death was a retortion measure from fox to punish him for following Synder on Warner's Superman... I'm surprised so few people remember that !

Being a huge fan of the first two X-Men films and this storyline, I have complete faith that Synger and the cast will deliver us a great X-Men film. And possibly the best X-Men film we have seen.

Im with you. This will be Singer's third x-men movie, and has ALL the ingredients to be the best and most epic sequel of the franchise and more than likely one of the best movies of the genre.

Not to mention, Matthew Vaughn did write the script, so I know we'll get an epic X-film here

To make this film truly epic, Cyclops NEEDS to come back. And Synger NEEDS to actually give him something to do this time around.
