Havok back for X-Men: DOFP? Plus more tweets from director Bryan Singer

Jun. 6, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Havok

Bryan Singer has been loading up on mutants left and right ever since X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was announced. It's been kind of a guessing game of who will return from the original trilogy as well as X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and of course which new characters we might end up seeing in the flick.

One character from the previous films we haven't heard about is Alex Summers aka Havok (Lucas Till) but apparently the plasma blasting mutant might appear in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. I say might because while there is no confirmation from anyone involved with the film, someone who lives in Montreal had their picture taken with Lucas Till near where Bryan Singer is currently filming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. I know it kind of sounds like a "My brother's best friend's sister's Mom told me..." situation but sometimes that's just how it works.

But combined with a report that James Marsden was seen last month traveling back from Montreal with Halle Berry and it looks like we could see both members of the Summers family in the movie. If true how might they explain the age difference between the two since their suppose to be brothers? One theory I read is that instead of being brothers, Alex Summers might turn out to be Scott Summers' father in the film. I would be OK with it but I'm not sure how some of the more hardcore fans would feel about this tweak to the characters.

As frequent and open Bryan Singer has been with his Twitter while filming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, one would think he'd mention that Havok (and Cyclops) are back. Which means it's either not true or Singer wants it to kind of be a secret and therefore won't confirm or deny that the Summers brothers will be in the film. If I was a betting man though I'd wager that we will be seeing both characters in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

Speaking of Twitter, the director has released a couple of new images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. One has the caption "Good Morning Vietnam" and looks like a rally for the controversial war, while the other is of Michael Fassbender as Magneto floating above the ground and in general looking boss.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be released on July 18th, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Lucas Till played Johnny Cash's brother Jack in WALK THE LINE.

People should really stop worrying about the film being crowded

This is basically a war movie and most characters will only have one or two lines and/or be part of a fight scene and leave. If Peter Jackson can have an actress like Cate Blanchett do what is little more than a glorified cameo for not one but two trilogies, I don't see how that should be a concern.

I'm not concerned with overcrowding, I'm concerned with Bryan Singer, he's pretty iffy when it comes to the final product.

Every X-Men news article I click hoping to hear they that are bringing Cyclops back, this is the closest we have gotten to this news so I'm hip to this!

I kept asking myself do you really think Singer would not try to fit Mardsen in?!? I get the sense they are friends in real life.

they ARE friends. Remember Singer even got James for Superman Returns. Most of the original cast actors are good friends of Bryan. Seems like everyone is excited to come back to work with him again. Feels great

and yeah, something tells me Singer will show Cyclops one way or another, maybe at the end of the movie, or a post-credits scene to tease next movie. He seems to have so surprises in store, according to older interviews.

Isn't this filming?

Erm, isn't this movie being filmed as we speak? How come they are STILL adding characters to it? Don't they have a script? Are they making it up as they go along? What the hell is going on?

I hope we also see Doop, the brood, Lockheed, the entire Shi'ar Empire, Sauran (I mean, why wouldn't you go to the Savage Land), Asteroid M, Kratoa, Fantomex, Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler and Mojo. Any less and Bryan Singer is a hack fraud!

Hopefully they'll have a reason for Havoc to shoot energy from his hands instead of the chest thing.

AT this point I just need to see a trailer before I decide if this will be a good movie. I do feel Singer is going a bit overboard with his tweets, take it down a notch man!

Why not?

Hell at this point why not just throw every mutant at a wall and see what sticks?

The character list should read: Every known mutant and some we just made up; also 3/4 of the Justice League, The Silverhawks, the cast of CATS, The U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division and the starting lineup of the Toronto Argonauts.

His energy projection is really amazing in the comics. Even more powerful than Cyclops! *pushes up glasses*

This is certainly an ambitious film. Hope it works out well cause right now, must be a huge part of the budget just going to the cast.
One thing I do like is that Marvel is making their Universe pretty expansive.

Im sure thats exactly what Singer, Millar and Fox are planning with the X¨-men franchise too.

Introducing Bishop and Blink is having an open door for future spin-offs or in any case, another HUGE crossover like Ages of Apocalypse. So who knows if Singer and Millar has that in store for next movie?

lets all hope DOFP is a big success worldwide and Fox can keep moving forward with more ambitious movies and of course bringing back the fan favourites Cyclops, Gambit and Nightcrawler

A) i hate the idea of Havok being Cyclops father. these two bothers have a somewhat strained relationship, with Alex being the little brother, he always feels that he has to get from under Scotts shadow, and cyclops does act like he know whats best for his brother, they should explore their relationship in the film, or at least in a possible future film which leads me to
B) if this film is successful, which story will they try to adapt? I think its time to see Apocalypse and Sinister,

Shooting in 3D

in the pic with Magneto the camera system shown is full 3D. Two Alexa M cameras on each of those cranes. Shooting this movie in real 3D is going to be an amazing viewing experience

Glad to hear they're bringing back both Cyclops and Havok. But I don't think it would be a good idea to make Havok be Cyclops' father instead. I think what they should do is introduce Cyclops in the 70's timeline as a kid or teenager just discovering his powers. Havok learns what happens to Cyclops in the future, he takes measures to ensure Cyclops doesn't get killed and voila, we get Cyclops back for future movies. Or instead of using Marsden anymore, they base the next movie in the 80's

That son rumor has to be BS

While Singer (thankfully) isn't borrowing much from the first Wolverine Origins solo flick, he's not gonna completely disregard it for such a nothing reason. In the 60's Alex joins up with Xavier. In the 70's scott is captured, and later freed. There's enough leeway there to keep them brothers and have it make sense (maybe, when Alex joins in First Class, Scott's powers hadn't manifested yet? Maybe Alex is killed before Scott is captured by Sabretooth and he never finds out his brother is

The more they add...

the less I want to see this movie. Nothing about this excites me, the concept, the cast mixing, things that I've seen so far. First Class was light years beyond the other X-men movies and to connect them with a director that I think is crap (yes i said it Bryan Singers movies suck) is just stupid.

hm

sooo magneto had his cape and helmet at the end of the last one but isnt wearing it now? so Prof X should just be able to go all mind control on him right? And I have to think with all the bitching about this movie Singer would have let us know by now if Cyclops was back, it would be more of a shame to not have all the mutants back from fist class, and we will probably never get a true sequel to a pretty good film

So the present day X-Men is really only Prof.X, Beast and Havok (reportedly). I wonder if Singer is keeping the team light considering we'll be having Bishop and Wolverine traveling back through time.

Marsden was awful as cyclops. Hope hes nowhere near the film.

Days has so much potential and it ssems like its gonna be a letdown to fans of the story.

Respectfully disagree with you about Marsden. I don't think he was awful, I just think Singer had all of his stories focused around Wolverine that the script never let Cyclops develop as a character. They relied too much on fans' previous knowledge to pull it off.

And I do agree with you about DOFP being a let down. Singer seems to be hyping the movie alot, but all he seems to be doing is throwing in random characters purely to get people excited. I don't think he really has a story

Thats fair enough about marsden. I just dont feel he makes a good cyclops. But as you say he has very little screen time.

Hopefully most of the mutants in this appear at the end, after the timeline get changed.

Cyclops is back! Awesome! I really hope the report turns out to be true and we have both Summer brothers the film and that they're not father and son.
