Bryan Singer Reveals More Details About ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’


X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has done a great job of keeping fans up to date on what’s going on with his latest superhero film by way of Twitter. He also recently did a Q&A at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival that was packed with information. JoeBlo was there to cover.

Singer fielded lots of questions about everything from Superman movies to Jack the Giant Killer, but he also dropped a few DOFP details, including the following quick hits: the movie is shot in native 3D; Scarlet Witch won’t appear; and Josh Helman does indeed play a young General Stryker.

The director also talked about some plusses and minuses of X-Men: The Last Stand. He didn’t like the way James Marsden’s Cyclops died, which translated into the actor’s absence from the upcoming film. However, he did figure out a way to get Patrick Stewart’s Professor X back, and liked the casting of Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde.

But that’s not all the Singer-revealed X-Men news. He also posted the following photo on Twitter, accompanied by the message, “Brightest set I’ve ever filmed on. #3600framespersecond #Quicksilver #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast”

To give you a frame of reference, Peter Jackson surprised some people when he announced that he was shooting The Hobbit films in 48fps, a format that some theaters weren’t able to support. That’s a lot of frames that the director, his editors and special effects gurus will use to give Quicksilver actor Evan Peters that superspeed feel.

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23, 2014.

    Scott dying was one of the few good things that happened in The Last Stand. Though it would have been better if it were onscreen so we could see it.

    I mean, who the hell LIKES Scott?

  • Alex W

    Comic Scott is alright, but yeah movie Scott was terribly under developed.

  • penguintruth

    Because people hate Scott. He’s a spindly, lame killjoy.

  • Sam Coolsome

    Plus look at what comic Scott has been doing latley

  • u4ea

    Exactly. Every time I think of him I think of that stupid X thing he does with his arms. Plus he KILLED CHARLES XAVIER. HOW THE FETH COULD ANYONE LIKE HIM NOW? I don’t even read Uncanny X-Men because I hate him so much hahahaha

    Anyone who hates Cyclops needs a fist in their ass.

  • JeffMc2000

    The 3600 frames per second is for super slow motion photography. Not the same thing as the 48fps Hobbit thing at all.

  • cylon

    I think Wolverine suffers a lot by the absence of Cyclops. The man who is the best at what he does and what he does is not very nice is way too much of a goody good guy. Yeah, he’s badass, but still a hero. Comic book Wolverine is quite a monster.

  • Arrho

  • penguintruth

    So in other words, like in everything else Cyclops is in.
