The “X-Men: First Class” sequel won’t bow until July 2014, but speculating about it is bound to be easier now that producer Bryan Singer has shared the flick’s title with fans.
The James McAvoy- and Michael Fassbender-starrer will be called “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The title comes from the ‘80s comic of the same name and is set in a dystopian future (which should be familiar to “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique in the franchise.)
“There will be elements that will be similar to the original ‘Days of Future Past,’ but there will also be some original elements,” Singer told CNN. “I can't really say more about it. I will only say that it's a very ambitious project and it definitely widens out the X-Men universe.”
Singer confirmed that Matthew Vaughn will return to the director’s chair, but there’s still no word if anyone from “The Last Stand” will show up in the film. (According to Entertainment Weekly, the original comic features Kitty Pryde, the character played by Ellen Page in the 2006 movie.)
“It's at script stage, so it's coming along good,” Singer said. “It's going to be cool.”

Great, now Bryan Singer is going to ruin Chris Claremont's classic. They need to give this series a rest already...
I can't believe The Moody Blues hasn't sued yet, (if they could). They might now since there is more money in a movie than a comic book.
I liked Kitty Pryde. Obviously they're not going to have Ellen Page reprise her role if the character is supposed to be younger, but it's an interesting character.
Didn't Kitty Pryde get killed by Nimrod in Days of Future Past?
Forget the Stan Lee cameo this time. How about honoring the man who actually created the characters? Let's have a character who is a JACK KIRBY look alike play a key supporting role in the next movie!
Obama is doing to medical marijuana patients what Hitler did to the Jews... shut down all shops and wait for us to be taken to concentration camps. Obama is a terrorist of African Americans.
"X-Men: First Class" deserves a sequel, so I'm glad to hear this! It was the best Marvel adaption that we've seen thus far. Sure it lacked the over-the-top effects of "The Avengers", but it also made the characters real and made them matter, so that they weren't just paper caricatures in costumes. And too, the muted yellow and black palette on the costumes helped the film avoid the campiness that Avengers (and most other superhero movies) suffer from. It felt real, and it felt serious (but without being depressing like "The Dark Knight Rises").
So, from what I can gather from your comments.... you don't want Comic movies to actually represent their cannon accurately? I got a better idea... why not just make an ORIGINAL story with ORIGINAL characters so the ACTUAL FANS of comics can enjoy what they REALLY want to see? Isn't that what YOU REALLY want?
Hollywood should quit twisting other peoples concepts up into garbage by adding this or that to a story that has already be written just so they can call it 'their vision'. It's not their interpretation or vision if they are just rehashing someone else's IP and turning them into mangled pieces of garbage.
It's a good thing that "It's going to be cool" – because I would hate for anyone to have to work on a script and movie for something that they already knew "was going to suck donkey balls" – it's one of those lines that really doesn't have to be said, but everyone says it anyway – every movie is going to be cool, great, wonderful, exciting, it's going to be the best dang movie you've ever seen. Propaganda.
Reminds me of how everybody in football says they'll be physical and give it 110%.
Just for giggles, I want someone to say he'll give it about 80 %, because once you give 100%, you're dead, and only zombies, vampires, and other undead can give more than 100%.
McAvoy and Fassbender are the best things that happened to the X-Men. Finally some acting skill.
Yeah, because the previous Xavier and Magneto – Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen – have zero acting credientials. What planet do you live on?
Yeah, but even the best acting in the world couldn't polish a turd enough to make it actual gold...
Force Fox to give you back the rights to all the Marvel properties that they have used and abused. Make some real X-Men movies. To any REAL X-Men fans these movie have been terrible and utter donkey poop. Do the same for Spider-man with Sony. The Avengers was 1,000,000,000,000,000 better than every X-Men and Spider-man movie COMBINED.
All Real X-Men fans
How is it possible for a story about the x-men to elicit a bunch of racist comments? This is nuts.
blue lady ugh
they're all pink on the inside.
prayer changes things. Commit your life to Jesus
Only buddha can save you.
Imaginary beings cannot save you from anything. Committ yourself to a mental health facility.
Seriously??... you're even posting this garbage in non-religious articles now?? Honestly, you have some mental issues and need to get some help.
I will get better results if I pray to Gandalf to make the Balrogs go away!
I reallly want to give the blue broad a facial
who's wolverine? nothing to do with movie topic.
wolverine is Hugh Jackman, wolverine doesn't age. He was in the movie.
Wow....if the major plot point follow the comic story....fans of Wolverine who discovered him through the movies are NT going to be happy!
Keep in mind that 'First Class' didn't follow the Origin story at all. It's good to see SOMEONE still has faith and hope in anyone BUT Marvel to actually follow the concept and story the way it was originally portrayed. I mean, even Marvel screwed up The Avengers for me, but at least it was CLOSE.
people take the conversations too personally.
Today is happy monday.
Dear Marvel –
Deadpool movie. Please?!
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
They gave Ryan Reynolds a superhero movie already, and he bombed. Why would they make the same mistake twice?
all conversation are fake unless people are face to face...does anyone understand blogging or is it just me.
did you come out...no–keep moving-
(to hostilE): Hey Dumba$$, It"s called ENTERTAINMENT!! Of course its fake. I bet you believe in Wrestlemania though!
Movies are fake and scripted. Who cares
WHAT!? THEY ARE FAKE!? I had NO idea that X-Men movies were fake, it's so believable, thanks for ruining it :( I'll go back to watching Jersey Shore to get a dose of "unscripted" story.
how can ppl be entertained by movies? Isn't it dumb knowing everything is fake and planned years in advance?
these conversations get funnier and funnier.
people Marvel is going to do great and these conversations don't make and sense as usual
oh don't worry now - the movie will be fine.
I hope its gonna be an exciting story this time & it had always been ever..!
Dont do it wolverine!!
you people are talking about movies
What a bunch of idiots.
As opposed to a genius like you, Dick.
i hope ritual mean't clear as a bell right? LOLOL
you did not need to write a bio for only 2 questions. shaving? i cannot for all women, but i still stick to "ritual"
Polluting should be discussed private.
maybe its time to be with another type. bunnies and those others are only in their 20's and want the bucks...however when i was 20 i never looked at 42 year old...the women today are only interested it the older mans wallet. feel bad for those guys-
ciao for now. lol
Back streets back: Alright!
I have had me a few nip women trying to pretend they are white and a couple of jungle bunnies...both have one thing in common, no romance without the finance!
STOP the Obama-Pelosi War against Medical Marijuana Patients.
i'm getting sick and tired of people coming around, pulling there pants down, and showing me their hairy butth0es. NO NO NO NO NO! i don't wanna see your hairy butth0le SO QUIT ASKING! if you go shave it, then maybe i'll have a look at it. Also, i'm getting sick and tired of all these looters...AND POLLUTERS...in my butt. They're always looting and polluting my poop and diaria and pee that comes out my butth0le
they will both decide if they want to be boyfriend and girlfriend, otherwise just be together and have a good time!
why is this always so complicated.
Men get so paranoid..older women don't ask these questions. if he wants her to meet the fam he'll ask her.
Kevin...Black chicks and Asain chicks always try and hook up with me, that does not mean I go make them my girlfriend though. Most of the time they are all about the money, especially the asian women. I dont see nothing wrong with hooking up for the night but never bringing them home to meet the fam, theyre only good for one thing anyways.
X-Men 5:Stan Lee needs another beach house
Stan Lee gets no money from those movies. (maybe union wage for the cameos) He doesn't own marvel. He was hired to create those characters so he doesn't own them.
Big breakfast this morning. Time to go out to the front yard and take a pooh.
Fact is White is Right! My black girlfriend tells me this every day. At the end of the day most intelligent black women want to be white or be with white sucsessfull men such as myself, asian women are the same way. Bottom line is black women know we are supurier and they want to be part of that so they can fit in or feel acepted more. Thats why you dont see white women on tv or movies with black men but you see black women with white men...we dominate and control that. Awesome...I Love Being White!
Your spelling is outstanding. You are undoubtedly a very "successfull" man...
You have a small weiner.
It is blatantly obvious that you are not successful. From you grammatical errors and misspellings one can assume that you are an idi0t. Therefore, your entire rant lacks any sort of credit.
Wow really, well as black woman I can tell you that your so called black girlfriend is not a part of the norm. I am black and have dated many white men, even had a child by a white guy. I will tell you this there is nothing better than a nice tall chocolate man. Every one of my black girlfriends would not even think about dating a white man. As a matter of fact most black woman wont. Black men yes, but women no. So if you are telling the truth, which i seriously doubt; your girlfriend is telling you lies and she is just trying to make you feel like your better than dating a black man. Dont believe the hype.
Kevin you are an ignorant individual, I wonder if your "black girlfriend,"knows what you've posted. By the way you spelled superior incorrectly.
Perhaps I've missed something, but, what does your statement have to do with the article?
do you coochie-
GET TO THE CHOPPA!
I'm a big fan, I can't wait...
you fools on here being racist tools need to get out your mamma's basement trolling and pole diving, and go get some coochie.
i have a new found respect for this movie.
the marquee blog
HUH? MI NO UNDER STAND . MI FROM MEXICO.
Wonderful issues altogether, you just won a new reader. What may you recommend in regards to your submit that you made some days in the past? Any sure?
Wow.... bringing up race in a comic book article... some of you nerds need to go out and find a girlfriend... lol
How does white-washing and little to no representation of minorities as X-Men have to do with someone's love life?
I hope they stick with Marvel Comics because the last one was a horrible movie.... The only good one has been the last stand
What are you talking about?!?!?!?! 'Last Stand' was HORRIBLE and didn't follow the Dark Phoenix Saga story hardly AT ALL.
when everything is made to be broken just want u to know who i am
goo goo dolls!
may i have bacon egg and cheese on a roll with a hot coffee little cream and no sugar, i'm gonna be starving after dancing. I accept you boo!..i just hope it wasn't you ... dancing at waterside! ciao
Days of Future Past is a Moody Blues album. Do they have to pay for that?
black people are very nice...
Why are black people so stupid?
Dlon... Why are you so stupid ?
class? have you read some of these blogs--ha
x-men is great and i cannot wait to see it myself.
class? have you read some of these blogs...i am so excited for this movie to end.
now lets just have fun blogging. i've been on the phone for 3 hours with all the companies.
nyp, nb and f are on it. i'm sorry its against the law
we will recheck the other areas and if something is there again it will be their decision how things will go.
we have to check it. we will not put anyone in jail but we will find out who did this.
LOL at all these comments about race. I'm black, and I'm going to go screw my white girlfriend. AND ENJOY IT, because at the end of the day, no one can tell me what I can and can not pursue
Damn straight that is what America is all about!
Tell em Ben ! Lol
Wow Superclicker, you truly have no clue when it comes to America's history. If we were to all "STAY IN OUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN", no one would be in America except for Native Americans! The U.S. is called a melting pot for a reason, you idiot.
Exactly what Celia said! In an entertainment world dominated by whites, blacks needed to have some sort of refuge for themselves!
To whoever made the comment about BET being racist, at the time, it was created because black people needed a voice in the entertainment world, which continues to this day! White people are the MAJORITY, so why would they need an outlet specifically for themselves?
What's up with the fact that the only black character in X-Men First Class died? Would it hurt to have a little diversity in these movies?
The character's name is Darwin and why do you even need to bring race into it? I'm sure the director of a movie figures people dying they don't base it on racr.
If it makes you feel any better there were plenty of white people killed in the other 4 movies.
Playing the race card is so 1988. Grow up
I really didn't like this new reboot. Jennifer looked like a blue Smurf with an already old looking Magneto. I didn't understand or care for the storyline at all. IMO.
Love Hale but not feeling her character in any of the sequels. To be blunt her portrayal of the character Storm is very weak. PLEASE! Please! Please Directors/Producers can we see either GINA TORRES or GRACE JONES play the character, STORM. These two ladies are tall and have that scary commanding appeal......THANK YOU

You would think she would have heard it coming.
i love mariah carey
This issue is not about "race". It's about "comic-book movies". ALL comic-book movies are stupid. If you people want "multiculturalism", go watch Star Trek. Plenty of RACE-MIXING in the Star Trek universe. Birds of a feather flock together. I hate "multiculturalism" and "race mixing". I think people should be proud of who they are, and WHAT they are... and they should live together with other people who are like them. I'm all for segregation. I'm all for people staying in their own countries. We all have our own countries. The problem is when people MIGRATE to other countries, and then get mad when everyone can't "get along" with each other. This is ridiculous. Of course nobody is going to "get along"! You can't put spiders snakes scorpions rats and praying mantises in a box, and expect them to all "get along"! Same thing applies to PEOPLE. People are DIFFERENT. Different races and cultures. Different viewpoints and ideas. RESPECT THOSE DIFFERENCES and live in peace and harmony with YOUR OWN KIND.
Stop invading other peoples territory! We all have our countries of origin. STAY THERE. Make the best of it.
Um, no, in America, it's the "melting pot." Races have been living together in this country for generations. The majority has no choice as it is UN-AMERICAN to deny minorities their citizenship. You're just another racist troll. Go back to Nazi, Germany. Oh, wait . . .
You realize you attempted to compare multiple different species in a box to one species that can communicate with each other. Your logic is flawed and youre an idiot. Please, go impregnate someone who isn't of your race...then hopefully your children will have a bit more common sense than you.
no one cares what you think.
U mad bro?
XM has become "Twighlight-ized" ..."Harry Potter-izised".
Awful. I can't watch like a few minutes of the movie on cable... ruined. A whole reboot that has bight, is accurate and more accurate is in order.
I gave up watching Marvel movies because of the white-washing and little to no diversity in them anymore. I'll just go and read Image comic's Chew from now on. Unless it goes back the multi-cultural-ism roots and stop catering to white men, then I'll stick with Image. And, no, I am not talking about minority women that always winds up with the white guy – I'm talking about minority men. How about a minority guy getting Rogue, White Queen, Dazzler, etc?
Seems like you bare racial tendencies. First, Marvel is one of the most progressive companies that has mirrored the civil rights struggles of the last century. Second, the love triangles of the Marvel world are well over twenty years old and have way too much back story laid down to change it up for the sake of appeasement. Third, lets try not to forget that diversity is not an argument of color, it is about the differences that should be celebrated rather than condemned. How about the sheer irony of Rogue never being able to express her love through physical means, or the romantic notion that Gambit is okay with that? I've seen Save The Last Dance, and thats cool with me. However, as a caucasion male that is romantically involved with a dark skinned woman, I assure you, there is nothing "white-washed" about love and we judge one another based on character rather than something as shallow as skin color.
Lol, SERVED! SERVED! SERVED!
I wonder if anyone will notice that I just pooped in the pool...
Bring on Howard Stern as Fart-Man !!!!!!
I agree with LOgan.
Wow where does racist stop if you do not realize theese comments about bet is stupid it was ok for you to force us to listen to heavy metal and rock and roll and country we had nothing before bet the late night show had plenty of racist topics and comments its still on the air we did not even have a radio station make a good song thex stole it and put a white face on it im black and black foot cherokee indian you are under violation of the first peace treaty if you do not like other races go home to europe you rape our people and steal our land this is america the melting pot home to all races stop it you do know god made us different collors and different speach read the bible its the only truth oops they edit that so prayer is the only way hell is waiting for all racist knock it off tyler perry movies why he is not gay madea is a carractor oh forgot he is black but there is alot of gay people in power movies music so whats your point i like x men and all of the comic movies
Uh, what? I couldn't follow that rambling mess at all. Are you insane, stupid or just uneducated?
Crack is wack
What? Did you really think anyone could make sense of that rambling?
You just proved why others stereotype black people haha. You can't even spell colored right an you probably run around saying that a lot, so you might want to learn how to spell it, you ignorant fool.
It can't possibly be any worse than X3. Brett Ratner should have been hung by his ankles and flogged bloody.
Can't help feel that every XMen movie SInger has made to date was more about gay rights that the actual XMen. Perhaps an infatuation with Hugh Jackman as most XMen seem focussed around Wolverine instead of the other characters.
Replace Singer with Zack Snyder and I'll go watch.
Most x-men movies are centered around Wolverine because that character is a money maker for marvel. And how is X1 and X2 or even X3 about gay rights? Never saw 1st class so I can't comment on that. Not sure what movies youbwere watching bud, apparently not the same movies I was.
lame movie and still goes on.
old pu77y, mammy, old tramp, old ho...you people make me sick.
The X man movie*Final class*
this movie is so cool, i watched it for more than 5 times, thnx guys, pls do more
Bryan Singer continues to destroy this franchise and my childhood.
X-Men First Class is the only X-Men I liked. All the others were jacked up. That movie should been better then The Matrix. The special effects were on the level of a art student. It should have started off with X-Men First Class and movied on from there. Who wrote the movie bible that stated that their should be no more the 3 movies. If it holds the crowd, keep making them. The Avengers has so much material and stopping at three will mess it up. Just like they messed up Spider-Man by putting three enemies all in the last movie-the worst one. The new spidey is better then the other three.
Somebody better call Joss Whedon to save this movie, please.
I will most likely watch it when it comes out... As for all the comments above about racism. People like me get the last laugh. Im very very mixed 17 total. In another 300 years or so...maybe longer. There will only be people of mixed race. Hope the movie is better than the last few.. BTW, Hugh Jackman CANNOT be replaced. Period.
just do not tap reply.
Attractive component of content. I simply stumbled upon your site and in accession capital to claim that I get in fact enjoyed account your weblog posts. Anyway I will be subscribing for your feeds and even I success you get admission to consistently fast.
I find it horrible that the only black character in the movie (who had incredible super-powers) was killed. When will Hollywood realize that black doesn't have to mean "bad"?
I find it Horrible to live in a world where Black Entertainment Television(BET) isn't considered racist. If someone was to create White Entertainment Television(WET) i'm sure someone would scream racism and it would be taken off the air immediately. If you feel this movie is some form of racism then I feel very sorry for you. That being said i'm sure their are plenty who feel the same way about Tyler Perry's movies.
@Really?...you're ridiculous. You do realize that BET is owned by white people, right? And white characters don't die with frequency in Tyler Perry movies. Have you ever seen one or are you just stereotyping?
@BGmc...BET is owned by a conglomerate.It was founded by Robert L. Johnson(A Black Man). It's President is Debra L. Lee(A Black Woman). 100% of their programming is dedicated to African Americans. If there was a Television station that was founded and ran by a White Person and declared that their programming was to be 100% dedicated to White People it would be labeled as racist regardless of who owned it.Do you not think that is stereotyping?
@Reallly?.....lets not forget NAACP....reverese racism is right in front of our faces and nobody cares.......there is gonna be racism until there is only people not white black asian mexican......jus people
He died because in the comic, he dies the same way in one of the alternate story lines...
So BET is racist because there's no WET? Actually, there's several. They're called FOX News, MSNBC, and Disney. Think about it.
Richard Pryor in one of his standup performances said "we Black people have to get together and make our own movies, and not about pimps and hoes, White people already know we the biggest hoes they got".
Xmen was better as a cartoon and comic.
These real life movies arent doing any justice for them. But i guess you knew that already.
Depending on how closely it follows the comics, I predict a lot of film critics will call it a Terminator ripoff, forgetting the fact that both stories use the same Harlan Ellison story for inspiration. In fact, the original comics I think pre-dated Cameron's fiilms by a couple of years, using killer robots introduced in 'X-Men' in the '60s.
Having said that, if they can get Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine) involved, they can have my 8 bucks right now.
sounds good to me.
Please include the super hero Dung Man.
Cara de verga
"It's coming along good?" I thought the comments were poorly written...
How about 'X-men: give it a rest already'....?
so dont frackin watch it, lame a s s
This is one of the BEST X-Men storylines, which came just a few months after "Dark Phoenix Saga" which is probably the best X-Men story arc ever. it also came about the same time as God Loves, Man Kills, which was partially incorporated into the second X-Men movie.
The fact alone that they are chosing Days of Future Past as the next story gives me extreme cause for hope. Its by far and way one of the best stories X-men has ever told (and awesomely leaves it open for a lot of young/old versions of all characters) and says alot about the people making these movies. If x-men 3 (from this series) turns out to be either the Phalanx Covenant or Age of Apocolype then I'll suffer a class-3 nerdgasm.
That might be the only way the studio will be able to compete with the obvious Infinity Wars we are about to indulge in with the sequel to The Avengers.
Please include Apocalypse.
I would like to see some superheroes such as fantatic four, ghost rider, spiderman, black panther, hulk, Captian American, Dr Strange, and more who were killed by the sentienls (big robots) in X-men: Days of Past Future. It will be awesome and the best move ever in history. That gonna be interesting. I hope it will be going well. My favorite X-Men character is Beast.
The original Days Of Future Past is one of the most startling, creative issues of a comic ever created. It would be fantastic if they are brave enough to bring this apocolyptic story to the movie franchise. But since it would kill off half their characters I have my doubts.
Good insight as to why this probably isn't going to be all that good. I'll be patiently waiting for Thanos to crush The Avengers instead...
uses TP for toilet paper, then takes a wiz after
::takes a wizz on person below::
"Days of Future Past" from the eighties? How about "Days of Future Past" (The Moodie Blues) from the Sixties.
God does not about the movies men do. Go hit yourself in the head with the bible.man is arrogant!
"No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord. " Have you ever been kicked in the ball? Welp, looks like God isn't going to let you into heaven! Enjoy hell goodbye!
I just hope they could write a script without using my lord and saviour Jesus Christ name in vain. Or the general term God d_ _ _. Sorry but its offensive.
Then don't watch it.
Put down the bible and step away.
God's name is actually Jehovah. It's in the brand new King James version close to 7,000 times. The tetragrammation symbols are a personal name and not simply God
Jesus is the son of God. You have no reason to really be offended. I'd like to hear more about fans who've read the comic book instead of someone seeking attention to himself. Where do the X-Men go from here in the Marvel Universe. I hope they don't relaunch the whole thing like they did with Spiderman or the Hulk.
There's no such thing as the right to not be offended.
So now people are complaing that movies are based on books? Whiners.
They should make a movie based on Inferno.
Oh gee, another comic book movie. Tinseltown's originality astounds me...
Oh gee, comic book movies are the only ones around, so you don't have any choice of type of movie to watch. Poor you...
If this is half as good as "The Days Of Future Past" comics it could be the best movie yet. then again it's Fox and they don't know how to use source material and do some research.
They probably won't be able to say "kill" or "die" either. They'll have to say "destroy".
this smells like its going to be poop
i love the movie and want it 2 come out ontime
Logan, Sony makes the SPIDERMAN movies. Fox makes the X-Men. And First Class, which had most of the same creative team as X2, was a delight.
I am now very excited about this film. Days of Future Past was one of my favorite storylines. I can't wait to see it.
Oh, look, diversity - there's a blue one! Makes up for killing the black sorta X-Man in the last one. Oh, wait! That's makeup?
Tell me about it. If it was done in the 1960's, during the Civil Rights movement, and the ONLY black (furthermore, minority) character dies . . . . . Well, lets face it, I didn't want to see it after hearing about this. If they bring back MORE diversity than even the FIRST X-Men movie, then I'll fork over money to see it. Until then, if it's practically white-washed, I'll pass.
Dont worry, I am sure tyler perry will dump out a few more of his ugly tranny movies for you to watch.
I never knew Jennifer Lawrence played Mystique Lol
Rebecca Romijn-Stamos played Mystique in the original trilogy. Lawrence replaced her starting with First Class.
This will be garbage. Sony pictures has ruined every xmen movie save x2. Unless its done by Marvel Studios you will never see a good xmen (or spiderman for that matter) movie.
Sony Pictures didn't make any of the X-Men movies. It was Fox.
