It's really anyone's guess as to what form Days of Future Past will take at this stage.
Agreed. In addition to the X-Men films' track record, I think this quote from Singer says it all.

This movie is called DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.
And First Class was called First Class. Doesn't mean the content will be the same.

Singer & Vaughn blatantly admitted that "First Class" was just a name they liked & felt fit the picture.

"Days of Future Past" is something they're actually adapting. Singer is not one to bastardize good material. His X3 ideas were very close to Claremont's comics.

What are we even bickering about?

Mark Millar, the "godfather" of these films confirmed himself this film would have robots, time time travel and, a post apocalyptic future.

here's it exactly

Quote:
[Matthew] Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past....(it's) X-Men meets The Terminator. You've got robots, you've got time travel, you've got superheroes - it's got everything in one film. He also said that it is "no spoiler on [his] part" to say that the film goes into an apocalyptic future. Cost-wise it's going to go up, and ambitious-wise it's gone up. But Vaughn can handle it. Vaughn made Kick-Ass for $28 million."
I think its safe that, with some differences to fit the movieverse, it'll be a straight adaptation.

The only knock that I understand when it comes to Singer is that he deviates quite a bit from the comics. When it comes to his direction though, I have never seen a film of his that I didn't think was great. The Usual Suspects is a classic, and the first two X-men movies are both extremely well made, I love both of them. And I know I am in the minority, but I love Superman Returns. It's a shame he never got to do a sequel because he would have done something crazy.

I saw X-men FC and thought it was terrible, so this sequel wasn't even in my mind. Now that they have hired Singer I am fully on board. Summer 2014 can't come soon enough.

Cyclops, Jean Grey, Psylocke, Callisto, Juggernaut, Rogue...

None of those characters play a part in the future faction of DOFP.

Hell, if Singer wants to bring the older Xavier into the mix, that's fine, but there's no point in resurrecting anyone or contradicting X3.

If he sticks to the comic, we'll get an amazing film.
COMPLETELY AGREE. Sorry that Cyke got bastardized in the first trilogy, but it doesn't mean shoehorning him into this one will make any sense. For a DOFP/Terminator-style story to work, it needs to remain as simple as possible. The more complications you add in, the worse it gets.

I wouldn't be ok with any "oh they're not dead!" plot cheats and I also would not be ok with the time travel aspect happening really early in the movie and changing the X1-X3 universe right away. In respect the characters from X1-X3 that we've come to know, it would be ill advised to just change their past right at the beginning of the movie.

Anyone is better than the possibility of Ratner coming back. I for one, am happy with Singer, the guy who brought us 2 solid X-films, the second of which I thought was fan-fricking-tastic. I'm actually excited for this film.

Yeah. Singers basically saying particular parts of it will be there but thats it. No reason to expect a direct adaptation, when there has been nothing to suggest that. They are more then likely doing something different.

Confirming last week's rumors, Bryan Singer has been confirmed to switch places with Matthew Vaughn on 2014's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, reversing the roles they played on 2011's X-Men: First Class. Singer, who directed the first two X-Men movies in the early '00s, will work from a treatment written by Vaughnómuch as Vaughn previously worked from a treatment by Singerówith Vaughn now producing for Singer, just like Singer previously produced for Vaughn. The change-up began yesterday, when Singer awoke in Vaughn's bed and vice versa, as each stumbled sleepily to the bathroom to scream comically as they saw the other's face looking back at him, then spent the day trying to convince their own terrified friends and family of their real identity in a series of escalating body-swap hijinks. They are expected to remain like this until they each learn to appreciate each other and not take their own lives for granted, or until Bryan Singer has amassed enough ostracism metaphors to fill his new X-Men film.

Have to disagree about FC which I thought was great, but your first paragraph I couldnt agree with more, Love X1, X2 is still one of my favourite CBM's of all time, I love SR and who doesnt love US, I also really enjoyed Valkyrie as well, so I cant wait to see this as I havent seen a Singer movie I didnt love.

Out of Captain America 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Spectacular Spiderman(?), and Days of Future Past, I have to say that DoFP has moved up my list as most anticipated cbm of 2014. Singer's going to knock it out of the park... again!

Could this be the X2 topper I've been waiting for? I truly hope so!

As do I. First Class came awfully close, and I know a lot of people do regard it as the series peak. But for me, X2 is still where it's at.

Definitely. Now that Singer is a proven director with a larger budget, he can do the characters he wants and the scenes he needs without worrying about them being cut for financial reasons unlike X1-2.

X2 remains my favorate out of X-Men series and marvel adaptans.It's one of my 3 favorate comic book films of all time.

I am hopefully for Captain America:The Winter Soldier but since I don't have a lot of faith In their choices of directors and the fact winter soldier happened after I quit buying new marvel comics I am not overly excited.I have little Intrest In Guardians of the galaxy(due to having never read any of GOTG comics) and I have always been bigger X-Men fan than Spider-Man fan(although SPider-Man Is my second favorate after X-Men) but I am defently looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man 2 more than Cap.

I'm highly anticipating Thor 2 of all the current Marvel movies. I find the first one to be a terrible film, and the worst of the Marvel movies, but I'm a huge Thor fan at heart and the sequel looks to be fixing everything that I hated about the first one.

So, that's probably my second anticipated cmb, after DoFP.. also excited for TASM2, since I did love TASM.

Watching X1 right now on Blu-ray...forgot how much I actally love the first one. I just don't watch it as much as X2, X3 and First Class.

Wolverine's little bar brawl is still one of the best introductions for his character's powers. ALWAYS loved it when he popped the two claws on each side of a characters face in the comic; while holding off the middle claw

I havent a big favourite yet.

X2 was great because it had most of the biggest x-men, with a great role for Nightcrawler, and some good scenes and concepts.

but First Class was really fresh, I liked the 60's set, the cast, and the new x-men, and it was the first movie to show real flying, something Ive been waiting since day one.

So both have good elements (the same as weaknesses).

I think Days of future has the potential to be my FAVE from the whole franchise. It definetly has the perfect elements, so.... I hope Bryan does an even better job than I already expect.

I'm quite the opposite. I loved Thor in the films, but never followed him much in the comics. But like you, Thor 2 is easily my most anticipated Marvel Studios sequel coming out.

And I love the fact they're releasing it in November. Seems like it's hard to find good movies around that time of the year.

I'm sure Cap2 will start peaking my interest once filming starts.

We are often on same mind.I consider Thor worse of marvel studio films.I didn't like news of darcy returning for sequel since I hated her In first film.But since we will get more of thor with powers It may not be too bad.But,please no redemption arc for Loki.I am in minority but I loved amazing SPider-Man more than Rami trilogy,and I didn't think going In that would happen due to my concerns ASM would too much ultimate Spider-man and no 616.

As did I. Really hoping to see some confirmation within a few months of the cast of DOFP.

I would like to think that Hugh Jackman would have no trouble reprising Wolverine. He'd get to work with Bryan again (whom he seems to have so much respect and adoration) and he's already in perfect shape for the character because he's still filming The Wolverine .
