Bryan Singer Says DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Is Not Just A Sequel To FIRST CLASS Or X-MEN 3
Bryan Singer made quite the stir yesterday, announcing Evan Peters for Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Controversy aside, just what exactly is Singer trying to accomplish with the film?
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, ‘Yes, that makes sense.’”"
It's speculated that the film will be aiming to undo some of what's occurred previously in X-films and look to position the franchise in an ideal position to move forward in a cohesive cinematic universe comprised of characters like the Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, Deadpool and a host of other characters. 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."
Some interesting statements from Singer but with the latest developments and the apparent opening gambit in what could be a protracted Cold War with Marvel Studios, I think a pressing question is just how much has the film changed since First Class director Matthew Vaughn decided to drop out?
