I thought the idea of another X-Men movie was done so this was a surprise. And a welcome one."

When asked of the size and scope of this year's upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, he revealed, "Bryan has such an incredible brain.

He's gone deeper emotionally and it's a great ensemble cast."

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for release on May 23rd 2014 with a cast that also »
