James McAvoy says X-Men: Days of Future Past will be the "biggest, most epic" X-Men film yet

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is going to be a huge movie. How can it not? With a giant cast, time travel elements from the comics and a budget that's probably north of $200 million, I think it's safe to say expectations are very high and many believe X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has the potential to be the biggest and best film yet featuring the mutants.

Principal photography for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST ended in August, and recently some of the cast have talked about their experiences while making the film. James McAvoy is the latest singing praises for the upcoming film and director Bryan Singer, and while talking to IGN McAvoy says the new X-Men film is going to be incredibly epic.

There’s an army of brilliant actors in that film. Bryan Singer is back at the helm. Potentially it’s going to be the biggest, most epic X-Men they’ve ever had. I think it’s the second biggest production Fox have ever embarked upon, behind Avatar. So they’re definitely going for it.

James McAvoy goes on to to talk about Bryan Singer's love for the series and how the director impacted future comic book movies when he did the first X-MEN film.

Bryan’s very protective of the series. He did create it. He did help form that environment that allowed subsequent superhero movies to exist and thrive like they have done for the last however many years. Not to say that there weren’t other superhero movies out at the time, but of that ilk, where it was OK to take it really seriously. He does take it really seriously. There’s a kind or reverence about it, which I like. You want people to take it seriously. That’s what he brings to it I think. And a safe pair of hands – you know you’re in good hands.

James McAvoy also talked about sharing the screen with Patrick Stewart and how much he enjoyed working with Hugh Jackman.

His last day was my first day and that was it. Then we were done. But we did crossover and we do get a scene together. Getting to work with Hugh [Jackman] – who I christened Hugo Boss – was great. What he’s like on camera when he’s getting interviewed and you think he’s the nicest man in show business – he is. He’s amazing. The guy’s got grace coming out of every single pore. If we could all be a bit more like Hugh it would be a very happy planet.

Calling X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST the "biggest" and "most epic" might get fanboys excited, but if the movie is any good or not is what really matters. A huge budget and a big cast doesn't automatically equal a great film, although I am hopeful X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be the best X-Men film yet. It certainly has the potential and like many of you, I can't wait to see what Bryan Singer and company have in store for us.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is scheduled to be released on May 23rd, 2014.
