Director Bryan Singer shares "Magneto's tools" implying there will be either torture or dental work in X-Men:DOFP

Director Bryan Singer is following suit along with fellow filmmakers Marc Webb and James Mangold, as he continues to use the Twitter machine to share bits and pieces of his upcoming superhero/mutant opus, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, be it casting info, sets, or props. Today, the director shared a photo of what looks to be either a standard issue torture set, dentist kit, or gardening tools, with the only description being, "Magneto's tools."

Given Michael Fassbender's vengeful portrayal of Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, where he used his powers to pull teeth (albeit without tools), shoot, stab, and "coin toss" kill certain individuals it wouldn't be hard to believe that he'd continue that trend as the "younger" evil mutant. However, Ian McKellen's portrayal of Magneto hasn't exactly been of a timid grandfather, so I wouldn't rule out either character doing a little "gardening" on some of their foes.

Here's the pic:

I think Fassbender and McKellen bring a tremendous gravitas to the character of Magneto and are perfectly cast to portray the Master of Magnetism at two different stages of his existence, so regardless of who they're torturing, I have little doubt that they'll be in top form. On another note, it was announced that John Ottman would be scoring the film, which isn't much of a surprise considering that he's Singer's go-to composer. However, I'm disappointed that X-MEN: FIRST CLASS composer Henry Jackman won't be back as his score for that film was the best of 2011 and one of the best superhero scores to date. Ah, well.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, starring everyone, is set to debut on July 18, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: I really hope they update McKellen's costume for the film. The business suit with a cape and hat looks like he's going to an Eyes Wide Shut party rather than a comic book movie.

Henry Jackman

Agree with you. the score for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS was fantastic. I still listen to it till date. Let's hope John Ottman brings the same energy that Henry bought to First Class.

Ditto on Henry Jackman

For an up and coming composer, he's been turning in some impressive work. Magneto's theme from First Class never fails to be bad-ass.

Although a pretty lackluster movie, his score for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is awesome. Highly recommend it to score fans.

Yeah Paul, it was one of the few things that kept AL:VH from being a total loss

"All right, everyone. This is Samir. For 50 points, see if you can guess his speciality."
"Oral hygiene?"

John Ottman

Jackman's score had the best Villain theme (for magneto), but Ottman's score for X2 had my favorite x-men theme (maybe b/c it's in my favorite x-men film). I think Powell's score for X-Men: The Last Stand is my favorite though, and the best thing about that movie. The Dark Pheonix theme is just phenomenal, tragic and powerful at the same time.

Me no like John Ottman. I wish Henry Jackman was still on board as well. Ottman's only decent score was Usual Suspects and even then, he was ripping off a track from John Williams JFK score.
