Default Re: Time travel method and ripple effect thread

Not sure if posted but Bryan Singer talks the time travel


"The future's about 25, 30 percent of the movie. The past is most of it," X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer told Empire Magazine when asked how exactly the past and future scenes are split up in the movie which serves as both a follow-up to X-Men: The Last Stand AND X-Men: First Class. The feature also mentions that the future scenes take place in 2023 and the reason for Wolverine being sent back is to stop the assassination of a "key figure" - at the hands of Mystique - in order to avoid annihilation at the hands of the Sentinels. As for how exactly Wolverine is sent back, Kitty Pryde will use her phasing powers to send his mind back into his 1970s body. "It's about figuring your rules and sticking to them," Singer explains. "The principle I looked at is this theory that until an object is observed, it hasn't really happened yet. The time-traveller whose consciousness travels through time I call The Observer, and until The Observer returns to where he travelled from, the result hasn't occurred yet. So he can muck about in the past and it isn't until he snaps back that the new future is set. As a result, we're able to have parallel action, and there's an underlying tension because there's always that threat Wolverine's conciousness could return and leave the world in an even darker place." It's also revealed that the school - in the past - has been closed for ten years by 1973, perhaps explaining why the team are no longer together.
