Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1
Of the confirmed characters three of them, Mcavoy, Fassbender, Lawrence, and Hoult were no brainers. This is a first class sequel and so the return of the main stars was a given. Stewart, McKellen, and to a lesser extent Jackman (who let's face it was going to appear in a more prominent role in a first class sequel at some point) were the real surprise announcements. Since then there has been no information, not even rumours as someone pointed out. So I agree with the term black void.
I mean outside of casting announcements and crew announcements there has been no other news (no I don't consider a photo of a script as news even with the quote that may or may not be used on the movie) and filming begins in four months.
