The upcoming prequel/sequel/wtfever "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is definitely living up to its title, as according to Deadline, original "X-Men" trilogy stars Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore will all be returning to the franchise.
Looks like we're one step closer to pretending that Brett Ratner never existed.
Ratner, of course, directed the critically lampooned third installment in the superhero series, 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand," which was notable for casually disposing of half of the cast while focusing almost entirely on Hugh Jackman's well-oiled pecs and a series of bad internet-inspired gags.
That, in turn, led to the franchise being entirely rebooted with 2011's prequel "X-Men: First Class," which was set in the 1960's. But now that original "X-Men" director Bryan Singer is back, he's using the classic time travel storyline "Days of Future Past" from the comics to bring favorites from both eras together in one story. »
