With its amazing cast and epic, time-spanning story, X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most anticipated releases in the superhero and sci-fi genres and looks set to recharge Fox's franchise for the future.
Director Bryan Singer says the film will bring a lot of new concepts to the screen when it opens in July 2014.
He told SFX: "It's not just another X-Men film; it's not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven't seen before in the X-Men films.
"There are also issues of time and we're messing about with that. I think we've got it figured out. I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand last year and he said 'Yes, that makes sense.'"
"We wanted an opportunity to bring some of the favourite older and younger characters together. We also wanted »

Bryan Singer is looking to take the X-Men franchise to a whole new level with X-Men: Days of Future Past. He's bringing together almost every main actor that has starred in an X-Men movie and is adding some new characters like Quicksilver into the mix. He's also throwing in a whole time travel element into the mix. This is an ambitious X-Men project, and I truly hope that Singer can actually pull it off.
In a recent interview with SFX, the director says his goal is for Days of Future Past to be its own film, not just a sequel to First Class or X-Men 3. He even reveals that he pitched his idea to James Cameron to make sure it would work.

The director promised that his upcoming addition to the 20th Century Fox franchise will be more than a follow-up to X-Men: The Last Stand and the prequel film First Class.
"It's not just another X-Men film," he told SFX.
"It's not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven't seen before in the X-Men film.
"We wanted an opportunity to bring some of the favourite older and younger characters together. We also wanted to play with the notion of different times and stuff like the way that time affects destinies.
"It enables the film to not just be a sequel to First Class or X-Men 3, but to actually be its own thing."
The film will see the return of many actors from »
Bryan Singer talked to SFX in an interview published Friday about X-Men Days of Future Past. Unfortunately, the small excerpt of the interview made available made no mention of the Fox vs. Marvel for Quicksilver debacle.
Instead, Singer chatted about his enthusiasm regarding the plot, which he says James Cameron approved of. Singer says that he was dealing with issues of time within the story and that last year while in New Zealand, he pitched it to Cameron (if you recall, Cameron was on a farm writing Avatar sequels) who told him it made sense.
The X-Men director also talked about where the movie fits in the X-Men timeline. Singer said, “We also wanted to play with the notion of different times and stuff like the way that time affects destinies. It enables the film to not just be a sequel to First Class or X-Men 3 but to actually be its own thing. »

Although it was recently revealed by Joss Whedon that the character of Quicksilver would appear in Disney’s Avengers 2; Bryan Singer--Director of Fox’s X-Men: Days of future Past--has announced that Evan Peters will be playing Quicksilver in the X-sequel. So who really has the rights to Quicksilver? Both apparently!
Of all the characters in the Marvel Universe, you wouldn’t think that Quicksilver would be one of the heroes that studios are competing over, but that seems to be what’s happening. Recently, Avengers writer-Director Joss Whedon said that the mutant siblings Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch would appear as villains in Avengers 2. “You know, they had a rough beginning,” Whedon says of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. “They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. »

Bryan Singer wants the world to know that his triumphant return to the "X-Men" movie universe in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be special. According to him, the new film is much more than just a sequel or spinoff.
"It's not just another X-Men film; it’s not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven’t seen before in the X-Men film," he told SFX. "There are also issues of time and we’re messing about with that. I think we’ve got it figured out. I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand last year and he said, ‘Yes, that makes sense.'"

Well here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

According to director Brian Singer's Twitter feed, "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters has just signed on to play Pietro Maximoff, aka the mutant superhero known as Quicksilver, in Singer's 2014 comic book epic "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Uh oh, you guys.
First, some background on why this character is appearing in two totally different franchises. In the comics, Quicksilver began his career as a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, helping Magneto fight the X-Men in the name of mutant equality. And this was before he even knew he was actually Magneto's son. However, he eventually had a change of heart, renounced his supervillain ways and joined the Avengers alongside his sister, Wanda Maximoff, aka The Scarlet Witch, another character Whedon has mentioned for "The Avengers 2."
So he's »

Proving some major movie studios just aren’t cut out for sharing, Fox has decided to add the super speedster Quicksilver to its upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past, even though Marvel Studios recently announced that it plans to include the character in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2. X-Men director Bryan Singer tweeted the announcement Thursday, saying American Horror Story actor Evan Peters will play the character. Quicksilver, along with his twin sister Scarlet Witch, is one of a handful of characters whose rights are shared between multiple studios; essentially, Marvel Studios owns the parts of the character’s »
It’s a boy! In 2014, Michael Fassbender is having a boy – on screen that is. In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fassbender, who plays Magneto, will appear alongside Evan Peters, who has just been cast as Magneto’s son Quicksilver.
Bryan Singer confirmed the news on Twitter:
Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.
Quicksilver (aka Pietro Maximoff), Marvel Comics’ mutant version of DC’s Flash, will also be appearing in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2. Peters is not been confirmed for both films. Fox controls the rights to the X-Men franchise, while Disney holds The Avengers. So Whedon need not go with Peters in his Avengers sequel.
It’s unclear how Quicksilver will be portrayed in the latest X-Men movie. In the comics, the speedster was part of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, »

Relations between Marvel Studios and Fox have gotten a bit more complicated after Bryan Singer announced that Quicksilver, a character that Joss Whedon has been very vocal about including in "The Avengers 2," was just added to the cast of "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Judging by the quickness (pun super intended) of the casting, it's not far fetched to assume that Quicksilver was added to the now-shooting "X-Men" film just to get to him first.
In fact, the initial wording of Singer's tweet contained a subtle jab at the Avengers, saying that "before he was an #Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid." Singer's since deleted that tweet and replaced it with this one:
Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.

But as olive branch-y as that replacement tweet may seem, HitFix's sources say things are anything but peaceful between the two studios. »

ComicBook.com have posted an excerpt from Hugh Jackman's interview with EW about The Wolverine, and the Academy Award nominated actor revealed a very interesting story from back when he was first cast as Logan by Bryan Singer for X-Men. The director apparently banned comic books from the set of the movie as he didn't want the actors to be influenced by them instead of the script for the movie. That explains a lot. Regardless, the cast still managed to find a way around this as the comics secretly found their way around the set ("Through the trailer door would come comics," the actor recalled). It was in fact during the production of this movie that Jackman read Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's Wolverine series that the upcoming solo movie is based on. On a related note, Singer has now removed the Tweet in which he seemingly made »
Director of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer wins at the Internet. I cannot get enough of how consistently well he treats fans to little snippets of goodness for his latest movie. Today we have three really great tweets to catch you up on.
First check out Peter Dinklage on a flight to Canada with Bryan Singer looking at what seems to be a script. It could be a take-out menu for all I know, but let’s call it a script. Then you can get your first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

Avengers 2 will not be able to use Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's code names, it has been claimed.
Only 20th Century Fox, which controls the X-Men rights, will be able to use the characters' superhero titles, while Marvel can use the names Wanda and Pietro, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit.
"Following up a bit on @DrewAtHitFix's take on Quicksilver: Heard that Fox can actually use the Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch names," he wrote on Twitter.
"Marvel can use the the names Pietro and Wanda."
Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the children of Magneto, first debuted in X-Men but have been important members of the Avengers over the years.
It is believed that the use of the names has been divided to prevent the franchises from being confused by audiences. »
Hugh Jackman has revealed the peculiar working conditions on 20th Century Fox's first film in the franchise.
The director wanted his cast focusing on the script rather than Marvel Comics' titles.
However, the Wolverine star told Entertainment Weekly that the ban only resulted in more comics being smuggled onto the set.
Jackman and Singer have reunited for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently shooting for release on July 18, 2014.

Quicksilver news aside, X-Men: Days of Future Past is shaping up to be quite the ambitious project from 20th Century Fox. By all accounts it will be the studio's first film that looks to create a shared universe comprised of all the characters the studio owns from its Fantastic Four and X-Men rights. Director Bryan Singer hints that something more is looking to be achieved other than simply combining a large contingent of X-Men actors into one film. "It’s not just another X-Men film; it’s not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven’t seen before in the X-Men film. There are also issues of time and we’re messing about with that. I think we’ve got it figured out. I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand last year and he said, »
X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer may have only signed up to Twitter less than 12 months ago, but the filmmaker has already proved to be a dab hand when it comes to social media with his updates from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Singer's tweets have offered a great peak behind the curtain on the eagerly-awaited sequel, mixing up casting announcements, first looks at actors in costume and the behind-the-camera team responsible for bringing the X-Men to life.
Digital Spy takes a look back through Bryan Singer's Twitter picture diary below… »
Here’s a few new movie stills from the upcoming comic book movie “The Wolverine” by director James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma, Identity) from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and starring Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman on Earth, Les Miserables, Real Steel, X-Men: First Class), Will Yun Lee (Total Recall, Bangkok Love Story, Red Dawn), Hiroyuki Sanada (47 Ronin, Fallen Moon) and Svetlana Khodchenkova (Suspended Chronicles, The Royal Killer).

On Thursday X-Men Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced via Twitter that Quicksilver would appear in the new X-Men film, only a week after Joss Whedon confirmed Quicksilver for Avengers 2.
Upon making the announcement, Singer appeared to take a jab at Marvel’s inclusion of the character, referencing The Avengers, before deleting that tweet and posting a shorter one. Take a look:
@bryansinger Why’d you delete your other tweet? I thought it was funny! twitter.com/kcresto/status…

#Marvel #Disney should of kept #Quicksilver & #ScarletWitch a secret. Now #Fox #BryanSinger are forcing their hand first. Not going to work.

While it’s possible that Singer had intended to include Quicksilver all along and just now revealed it, it seems unnecessary »
