Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past
 
Confirmed as per "TOLDJA"

Quote:

Bryan Singer has just closed his deal to return to the director's chair for the X-Men franchise to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past, the next installment of 20th Century Fox's superhero series. The ink is still drying on the deal, we’ve learned. Matthew Vaughn was to direct the sequel to the hit spinoff X-Men: First Class, but we told you last week he was stepping back; word is he is near a deal to produce this one instead along with writer Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Singer launched the X-Men feature franchise with the first two superb films and has been a guiding influence in this spinoff by writing the treatment and producing. Fox already has the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and set to return is Fox's First Class cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence. The studio hopes to make the July 18, 2014 release date it set for the sequel.

Singer's next film is Jack The Giant Killer for New Line. He is repped by WME.

they won't bring wolverine in and not do something with him, but to make him the time traveler just unnecessary

if FOX want to branch out on new characters for an avengers style universe then they can't make wolverine the be all and end all, but at same time he had a role in the comic so it makes sense to have him in this

Exactly. The plan is to expand the X-Men Universe. Can't do that if Wolverine does everything. And he wont, as this is still a FIRST CLASS sequel. I hope people can realize this.

Wolverine has his own movie to worry about, I'm pretty sure he's not gonna take over the FC sequel as someone might imagine.

an offtopic question:

if this is the second topic about Bryan Singer, why is it called Part 1?

Ive always wondered that with superherohype topics, lol

Because Thread Manager is an evil being who can't count.

The first 'continued' thread is labelled 'Part 1' for some reason. It's just what it does.

seems like a nice reason. I'd preffer it as part 2, less confusing, but its not a big deal :cwink:

The cast for this movie is gonna be so big and great. Hell it already is.

Angamb 11-29-2012 11:09 AM

Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1
 
yes, its gonna be one of the best casts of recent history. At least on mainstream cinema.

The most reasonable thing to do with the plot of this movie is to have an original trilogy character go back in time to the FC era, trying to fix the future, but instead just ends up creating a different timeline. The timeline that will be the future of the X-Men films. It's like a reboot but still not and would be a swan song for the original cast. That way they have way more freedom with the shared universe thing. It would be very much in line with the original story and follow ups.

The problem is The Wolverine though, as it seems to be the original timeline and yet Millar says it's the first step towards a new and bigger universe. Hmm...

Pretty much agreed. I think theres a couple different ways they can go about the time traveler or sending a warning to the past but yeah. Def the best way to pave the path for future films.

whatever they do, I just hope to see more team movies in the near future.

And if we see different sequels for each casts, Id be f****** Happy!!

I'm just as confused trying to figure out where they are heading. I wonder if they'll erase the events of X-men 3 or tie back into it.

chances are it will tie into it, i mean if X3 gets erased then that means what ever continuity the wolverine has with X3 wont matter either as the events will have never accured in the new timeline thats created

This is exactly what I'm thinking and why it makes the decision to do DOFP so brilliant. The fact that this very important story was just sitting there for this purpose is amazing.

And the new FC universe really does need something to breathe life into it, in terms of commercial and mainstream success. I know that that kind of success is not what is important to fans, but it is ultimately what matters for the longevity of the franchise.

Haha true, but by then the movie will have come and gone and it won't be an issue. Actually, the whole first trilogy will be retconned... it's like an in-continuity reboot!

And really, after DOFP, Hugh can't possibly be planning on making any more, right??

Hugh has said before (and it's on the Wolverine blu-ray) that if it's clear the audience is tired of him doing the character, he has no problems hanging the claws up.

But...if it's also clear they continue to enjoy watching him and keep coming out for the movies, he'll continue to play the character.

And remember people, he's only 44-years-old. It's not like the man is 55 and embarassingly out of shape. :D

I wonder if we could go back to the 10,000 post limit. Or at least 5,000 post limit.

So we know Bryan was at The Hobbit premiere in NZ. Most probably did the whole red carpet thing...where are the red carpet interviews?? Where's Retroman when you need him?

It's nice to see an actor who is enthused and excited about being in a comic book film. :up:

And such a fantastic actor too!

Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1
 
I still wonder if they are gonna move DOFP's release date because if they don't, both of Ian McKellen's movies are opening in the same day/weekend and I don't know if Ian McKellen would have time to promote DOFP or at least attend the premiere night/s of the movie.
