New X-MEN: DOFP Details: No Scarlet Witch, Thoughts On Cyclops, Bald Wolverine & More
Director Bryan Singer did a Q&A at The Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal this evening and JoBlo.com had someone on hand to report on the juicy details. Singer first screened the X-Men: Days Of Future Past footage from SDCC before revealing a bit more about the movie, as well as a great many other things -- including his thoughts on Man Of Steel, an argument with an editor on X-Men and Russell Crowe's stipulation for playing Wolverine. You can read about all of that at the link below, but we're bringing you the new info on DOFP. Here are some of the bullet points as they appear over at JoBlo.
No, Logan won't be bald in this movie -- but that's how Russell Crowe wanted to play him when he had the chance in the first X-Men! At a Q&A at the The Fantasia International Film Festival Bryan Singer revealed some new and interesting details on Days Of Future Past..
The film will be shot in native 3D.
No Scarlet Witch in Days of Future Past.
William Stryker will be in Days of Future Past. Josh Helman is playing him.
Not the brightest X-Men movie, but it has a good message, trying to right wrongs.
Most of the movie takes place in 1973. Future segments are 10 years after X3.
You find the characters in very different places that you saw them in First Class. Shows then becoming who they have to be.
Remembers Russell Crowe saying he'd play Wolverine - but only if he could play him bald. Didn't work.
Thoughts on Cyclops demise in X3: Wishes he could bring him back. Wasn't happy with that choice. Could justify bringing Xavier back because he transferred his consciousness and could possibly construct a body around that consciousness. Was however, happy about some things- like the casting of Ellen Page.
Some great stuff there. How do you guys feel about Quicksilver appearing without his very significant sibling? Do Singer's comments on Cyclops give you hope that the character will appear again in the X-Men franchise? Would you have taken Russell Crowe as Logan if he was gonna lose that trademark barnet? Days Of Future Past is set for release on May 23, 2014.
