Bryan Singer Reveals How Many Years After X-MEN 3 That DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Takes Place

Many fans assumed that the scenes set in the future wouldn't be as far ahead as those in the comic book of the same name, but director Bryan Singer has now confirmed exactly when those (and the ones set in the past) take place. He also talks more about how Kitty sends Wolverine back in time.


We've seen photos of the X-Men: Days of Future Past cast and they don't look all that much older. Well, that's because the gap between X-Men: The Last Stand and this movie isn't actually all that big! "It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class," Singer tells Empire in the latest issue of the magazine. So, only a decade has passed, but that's more than enough time for us to hopefully see a dystopian future similar to that featured in the Chris Claremont/John Byrne comic book arc. During this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, it was also revealed that it is indeed Wolverine who travels back in time and the director talked more about that and where we pick up with Charles and Erik in the 70s. "It's its own story, inspired by Days of Future Past. She's the prime facilitator - it's her power that enables that to happen. But it's Wolverine who has the strength and the stamina to be able to go back on this journey. Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power. They're in a radically different place."
