James McAvoy Reveals More X-MEN: DOFP Details; Wolverine The One Who Travels Back In Time?

In the comic book version of X-Men: Days of Future Past, it was Kitty Pryde who travelled back in time. However, it now appears as if it will be Hugh Jackman's Wolverine who takes on that role in the Bryan Singer helmed movie. Read on for details!

"I'm excited about the 70s," James McAvoy told Empire Magazine in a recent interview (which took place before he headed to Montreal to shoot the "inbetweequel") when asked what he's most looking forward to about working on the Bryan Singer helmed follow-up to X-Men: First Class. "I'm excited about my costumes, which are fucking awesome. He's on his way to becoming Patrick Stewart, but he's not quite there yet. The '70s costumes are hilarious , they're quite psychedelic, which is great." Their chat then turned to the plot of the movie and the magazine seemed to indicate that Wolverine will travel back either with or instead of Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde. "Hugh's got a big part," the Scottish actor teased. "You throw Hugh Jackman in there and he comes with so much rage. I'm really looking forward to working with him. He'd better fucking bring it. I'm excited to work with McKellen to." Talking of McKellen, for anyone worried that the relationship between Magneto and Professor Xavier will be put on the back burner in the movie, McAvoy said they needn't worry. "It's working off what we set up in the first 'new' one. The relationship between Charles and Erik is being explored in the future and in the past."

Wolverine for the win.
GeekyCheekyChic - 5/28/2013, 2:05 PM
in the animated series Bishop travelled back to stop Mystique from assassinating Senator Kelly.... kind of don't think this will follow the books or the animated series....
Jollem - 5/28/2013, 2:05 PM
i don't know why, but i think this will be better than the avengers. yeah
McNyagano - 5/28/2013, 2:06 PM
This movie should be titled :

Wolverine and The X-Men : Days Of Future Past :)
BruceLeroy - 5/28/2013, 2:06 PM
Is anybody really surprised?
GodzillaKart - 5/28/2013, 2:06 PM
Definitely interesting. I hope it's good.
ForMeToPoopOn - 5/28/2013, 2:07 PM
Wolverine : X-Men :: Iron Man : Avengers

The suns in their respective cinematic universes.

Must. Shove. Wolverine. Down. Peoples. Throats. At. Any. Cost.
RG7620 - 5/28/2013, 2:08 PM
Another Wolverine movie... yay?
FOOM - 5/28/2013, 2:08 PM
Please, just finish making the damn movie so we can have a proper b*tch out before the X-Men are eventually rebooted.
Scorn - 5/28/2013, 2:09 PM
People are going to be mad if this is true because wolverine always gets the light shined on him in these movies, but I'm ok with it!

You'd think that if one were posting an article titled: "James McAvoy Reveals More X-MEN: DOFP Details; Wolverine The One Who Travels Back In Time?" That said poster would include the ACTUAL part of the article where they talk about Wolverine being the time traveler instead of: "Their chat then turned to the plot of the movie and the magazine seemed to indicate that Wolverine will travel back either with or instead of Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde." Why would you use that as the TITLE of the article and then NOT include it in the actual article itself???

FOX's handling of their X-men and Fantastic Four properties:



ralfinader - 5/28/2013, 2:09 PM
Yeah, this is sounding almost as good as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. By the way, I happen to be one of the countless millions of people that thought X-Men Origins: Wolverine sucked almost as bad as Green lantern.
DravinClaw - 5/28/2013, 2:10 PM
Can someone give Singer the Trade Paperback or the box set for the animated series this is gonna suck
TheRedSkull - 5/28/2013, 2:10 PM
Hey if it works, go for it. I mean I wouldn't want to see the X-mens Kitty from the movies going back. She's pretty lame. Just as long as Collussus is getting more movie love this time around. Cause seriously...come on!
WeAreVenom50 - 5/28/2013, 2:10 PM
... how does this indicate Wolverine will be time traveling???
thenerdicon4 - 5/28/2013, 2:11 PM
Seriously? [frick] WOLVERINE. He is so overexposed it is not even funny. And taking away Kitty Pryde's most prominent and important role in X-Men history just so Wolverine can get the spotlight...Again... No I call BS. I swear if Kitty Pryde doesn't get a good amount of screen time in this flick I will be pissed. She had two small cameos in the first two films, then had a bigger part in the 3rd film, which sucked, and now they are replacing her with Wolverine? [frick] that. Why even Call it days of Future Past if they are barely even going to follow the story. At least X2-X-Men United had the common sense not to use the name "God Loves, Man Kills" Because A lot of that story was used for X2, but it was clearly NOT that story. GUH! I was so excited for this because this is my favorite storyline in the comics below "GOd Loves, Man Kills" If they [frick] it up i will be pissed.

This movie sounds interesting but the plot twists we keep hearing seem like they may confuse the average person going to the movie.
Jollem - 5/28/2013, 2:12 PM
umm...wolverine gets the spotlight in the comics as well
TheRedSkull - 5/28/2013, 2:12 PM
Just as long as most of it is concerntrated on Erik and Charles. I always enjoyed their interactions in both the original movies and First Class, both duos were great
CharlesLord - 5/28/2013, 2:13 PM
this doesnt indicate logan will be going back in time at all
blvdnoise - 5/28/2013, 2:13 PM
I just can't help but be excited for this movie. Please be good!
Jollem - 5/28/2013, 2:13 PM
let's not pretend robert downey junior isn't the justin timberlake of the mcu

thenerdicon4 - 5/28/2013, 2:14 PM
So, does that mean this will be Wolverine 6: Days of Future Past. Wow, Wolverine is the longest running Solo superhero film franchise now.
thenerdicon4 - 5/28/2013, 2:15 PM
Wait, you mean their were other characters in those movies other than Wolverine? I couldn't tell.
Superzero - 5/28/2013, 2:15 PM
@Gilger50

It doesn't... see my comment 5 above. The "writer" here leaves that part OUT. Trying to find the actual empire article now...
ElDarkside - 5/28/2013, 2:15 PM
Maybe bishop will travel back in time with kitty and get the 70's wolverine to help to stop an assassination. That's what I originally thought when I saw the pics of jackman with the old hair. If wolverine is traveling back in time then he would have the same haircut at his pics from The Wolverine...
TelaVizion - 5/28/2013, 2:16 PM
Yall need to understand... Wolverine = X-Men. Deal with it.
Jollem - 5/28/2013, 2:17 PM
for any fan that doesn't know about comic books at all :

-wolverine is and has been popular for quite some many years. probably before you ever read a comic

-he is sometimes the focus of the story in x-men comics
Ocelot - 5/28/2013, 2:17 PM
meh but it's hardly surprising knew this was going to be the case when it was announced that Wolverine wouldn't just be cameoing in the film. Would have preffered it if Bishop was the time traveller along with Rouge and Shadowcat whilst Wolverine gets disentergrated by the sentinels. Then again recruiting Wolverine in the 70's would alter the timeline, maybe that's what they'll do
thenerdicon4 - 5/28/2013, 2:18 PM
@Fettastic, yeah, because believe it or not Wolverine is not the only interesting X-Men character. If they want to make him the front runner just give him his own seperate series of films and take him out of the X-Men movies. He was not front and center in Days of Future Past. he played a large role in the future part, but in the past part he was just another member of the team. Kitty Pryde is an interesting character. Jesus Christ, people on this site seem to think that super powers are the only thing that make a character interesting.
deamon - 5/28/2013, 2:18 PM
With McKellen? Maybe Xavier will move his mind to future, like in Wolverine & The X-Men cartoon.
By the way, Wolverine rulez!
Jollem - 5/28/2013, 2:18 PM
i doubt this movie will pull a "mandarin"
rocky - 5/28/2013, 2:18 PM
Guess Fox is doing with Wolverine what Marvel has done unfortunately.
And that is put him in everything and make him the end all be all
MrMartinMarvel - 5/28/2013, 2:19 PM
[frick] you FOX.
gambgel - 5/28/2013, 2:19 PM
I'll keep my positivism until I see the trailers and have more info regarding the other x-men.

I have faith in them this time. The other x-men will shine on this much better than on previous movies, even if their roles arent huge. But I think their scenes will be better, specially with the action and with some decent lines here and there.
