X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST To Be Set Over 10 Years After The Events Of FIRST CLASS

A casting call for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past reveals that the sequel to Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class will be set over a decade after the events of that movie. Hit the jump for further details on the movie!

Thanks to a tip from Twitter's @tvchiquita, we have a screengrab of the following casting call for X-Men: Days of Future Past. As you can see, the production company will be going under the name of "HK Productions" and the majority of casting will be taking place in Montreal. However, far more interesting than that is the fact that the majority of the sequel will take place over TEN years later than those of X-Men: First Class. This more than likely means that JFK's assassination (a sequence that Matthew Vaughn once said he would like to include in a sequel) won't be the reason for mutants from the future travelling back to the past to change the course of history. However, a ten year gap would allow for certain characters not being brought back (such as January Jones' 'Emma Frost' or Rose Byrne's 'Moira MacTaggert') and James McAvoy's Professor Xavier no longer having his hair! Check out the casting call below and be sure to sound off with your thoughts below.


James McAvoy as Charles Xavier
Michael Fassbender as Magneto
Nicholas Hoult as Beast
Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier
Ian McKellen as Magneto
Shawn Ashmore as Iceman
Anna Paquin as Rogue
Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde

RELEASE DATE: July 17th, 2014.

this can either turn out really good..

Cannot get excited for this at all, there's just no traction with the X-Men films for me. This will be the 7th X-film after The Wolverine, whereas Iron Man 3 will be the 7th film in the Avengers series. I grew up loving X-Men and never really liking The Avengers, and I can't believe at 24 I am adoring The Avengers movies and not caring at all about the X-Men series.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/30/2013, 3:17 PM
10 years eh? So Batmans leg breaks he takes 8 years off, Professor X gets shot he takes 10 years off. Robert Downey Jr. break his ankle and takes off 8 weeks buck up bitches!
JorLBola - 1/30/2013, 3:18 PM
I knew it!!! So maybe we can see a very Young Cyclops and Jean
Durf - 1/30/2013, 3:20 PM
Can't get excited for this movie no matter how much I try. But we shall see
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/30/2013, 3:20 PM
I hope this film fixes errors in the X-Men universe
JorLBola - 1/30/2013, 3:22 PM
Wait... forget it, It's too early... damn -_-
Darthzilla - 1/30/2013, 3:22 PM

Dude. So just because its set 10 years after the first one doesn't mean the X-Men were out of it.


This is a prequel....

After ten years have past Xavier should have a kickass X-Men team built up.
Jean Grey
As close to the true first class we can possibly get with the fricked up continuity.

What the [frick] did Bryan Singer do to be given the keys to the X-Men film kingdom? Give this shit to Marvel so they can show him how it's done!
TayDee - 1/30/2013, 3:32 PM
The time jump seems odd, but I hope the lineup is altered. Go with the classic "first class." Even though they [frick]ed up with the Havok being there thing.
CaptainAmerica - 1/30/2013, 3:35 PM
X-Men 1 and X-Men 2. He also produced First Class. That's why he has the [frick]ing keys you moron.
Nomadic1 - 1/30/2013, 3:36 PM
I have such low expectations for this movie and the X-Men universe and it kills me that I feel this.

This was the comic that got me into comics, so I have a purist attitude towards it. And after First Class, a raping of the source material, what should I expect from this...
DeadManDann - 1/30/2013, 3:38 PM
Hell, I live in Montreal. Might as well try and be an extra.
ChanchoMcGrady - 1/30/2013, 3:40 PM
To be honest, even though I know Havok's place in the timeline is wrong, I hope he returns for this film. Also, it would be sweet if both Azazel AND Nightcrawler were in the movie. And freaking Cyclops. James Mardsen is great so they should keep him, but Cyclops got the short stick in past X-Men films. He needs some more awesomeness this time around. Hopefully we get some more casting news soon. Unfortunately, most of those things seem unlikely as the film already has a growing cast that doesn't even include the villain yet (assuming there is one, maybe it's just X vs. Magneto).

The time gap does seem weird to me. I thought this movie was going to show how Xavier & Magneto became true enemies (since they simply drifted apart and went different directions at the end of FC), but after 10 years they probably already will be.
DrDoom - 1/30/2013, 3:43 PM
This movie should be cancelled, because when Marvel Studios eventually gets the rights back, they'll want to make a Days of Future Past movie in their X-Men series because it's such a good [frick]ing story.

Then we'll have two Days of Future Pasts and the masses will be confused and call the Marvel Studios movie a 'rip-off' when it will probably be infinitely superior.

ChanchoMcGrady - 1/30/2013, 3:43 PM
@Raleigh @Captain America
Sure, he messed up Superman returns, but yeah, he did give us X-Men 1 & 2. And he also gave us Valkyrie and House.

I am super excited for this film, but at the same time, super nervous.
DrDoom - 1/30/2013, 3:43 PM

Fox screwing up X-Men's continuity.

Nemesis0FCoLum13us - 1/30/2013, 3:47 PM
There's another X-Men movie coming out... WHO CARES?
DrDoom - 1/30/2013, 3:50 PM
Also, I can never forgive First Class for giving us horrible renditions of both Mystique AND Emma Frost. How can you so royally [frick] up two of Marvel's greatest female villains in ONE movie?

Nomadic1 - 1/30/2013, 3:50 PM
@Marvelpsycho It sucks that this is what we get, when there is so much more that we could have. Marvel Studios is doing a great job of building a universe, one movie working with another and planting breadcrumbs along the way. What a marvel f-ing idea. Make movies like we make comics!
ATrueHero1987 - 1/30/2013, 3:51 PM
There are NOT changing or correcting the events in other X-Men movies! The Wolverine is taking place AFTER X-Men: The Last Stand AND Singer said not too long ago that he's not ignoring X-Men Origins: Wolverine & X-Men: The Last Stand.

So I wonder how the F4 is going to fit in this. In X2, it already hints that they exist in that universe.

@AcidicHeart - You need to clean that sand out of your vag, kid. That's a lot of posts bitching and nothing of note actually said. "Cancel this movie because, boo-hoo, I don't like it". Good grief...

Very excited to see this movie, myself.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/30/2013, 3:56 PM
I'm cool with that.
DrDoom - 1/30/2013, 3:59 PM

I don't have a vagina, and I'm not a kid. If you want to see more piss-poor X-Men movies, that's your business, but you're not saying anything of note by telling me off for speaking my opinion.
Facade - 1/30/2013, 4:01 PM
I never thought I'd say this, but this is my most anticipated CBM (aside from the possibilities of a Batman reboot and Justice League [properly cast]).
thewonderer - 1/30/2013, 4:09 PM
This film has too good of a cast for me not to be super interested in.

After Man of Steel, this is my most anticipated CBM

hopefully this isnt true. dont like the idea of a 10 years jump :(
JatevinM - 1/30/2013, 4:20 PM
I am seriously hoping that I get to see Storm. It has been too freaking long since I've seen my favorite weather witch.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/30/2013, 4:20 PM
Why are people surprised by the 10 year jump? I believe they stated several times before that the sequel would talk place in the 70s.
Fogs - 1/30/2013, 4:25 PM
^^ This. That was already hinted when 1st class was released, no surprise.
HULK2099 - 1/30/2013, 4:26 PM
Damn I was hoping for 80s, 80s and X-men go perfect together
