Now used as extra seating.

That's what happens when you have totally different writers from the previous movie and yes man directing.

I can't imagine an entire cinema laughing at that scene. If that was the case, the audience was much more ridiculous.

Singer's next tweet should be of past and future Magneto helmets side by side imo!

LOL and Storm dry humping Wolvie.

I also always laugh at the afro chick behind the main cast in the funeral scene. It's so distracting.

otherwise i don't see future Mystique needing to be in it at all, can't have to many future and past versions of characters
Xavier and Magneto are only ones that can bridge both timeframes right now besides Wolverine.Mystique for that reason I see as good possibilty for future.
Plus the fact Bryan would want to put Rebecca Romijn In film.

It was entirely justified for an audience to laugh at that scene. After such a heavy handed attempt at drama and emotional intensity, it's just a jarring shot of a chair, completely out of context. I mean, why is that chair even just sitting there in the middle of the room, with the door open? It completely undermined the drama of the scene and looked so stupid of course people would laugh.

I mean, what was even the point of showing the chair?

"It's so sad that Xavier is dead... Look, a chair... Remember when he used to sit in that? We just wanted you to remember the most significant thing about him as a character... Not the school he built or anything about his legacy... Just remember that he was a crippled guy... and now his wheelchair is all empty. SO SAD"

(edit: in response to last page comments, not posts above)

A death in comics is different to a death in films where the character has to stay dead if you want any credibility with the wider audience. So with an ongoing franchise the net effect of losing one of your best characters for the rest of the franchise's life can be negative even if the death is executed well (unless you have a reboot upcoming or some other kind of get-out)

But this film is the exception of such a rule. It's Days of Future Past. The whole point is to stop/prevent/erase the terrible future. That's the crux of the film. That gives you an allowance to have characters die and not affect the film's credibility.

Not to mention the OT cast blankly staring into space during the funeral scene. Oh but it showed Kitty cry, she had like two lines early in the movie so it's okay.

Yes, this is the time to do it and get away with it. X3 was not and kind of killed the future of the franchise for a while. On top of that all the deaths were atrociously executed adding nothing & making for a much poorer film.

Oh, that I agree with. Sorry, I thought you were arguing there shouldn't be deaths in this film. My apologies.

And yes, the deaths in X3 were appallingly handled, with zero forethought for the future and stopped the franchise in its tracks.

I didnt have a problem with killing Jean and Prof X in that story. Surely there would be a few casualties on any adaptation of the Phoenix. But yeah the overall execution of the film is just a let down...and at times an insult to characters.

Nah you're good. It wasn't clear from what I originally said.

Jean fine as it's part of the story. I think killing the Prof was a pointless addition & would have long term ramifications for the franchise. Probably why there was no X4. But at least he got a death scene. To waste Cyclops as well off screen was criminal. Both leaders of the X-Men vision wasted in one film for little long term benefit. The other thing, having so many deaths kind of took the focus away from Jean's death which is what actually mattered for the story. But yeah, the overall execution is a letdown and a franchise killer.

Yeah, Cyclops was def horribly mistreated. Most frustrating thing of this franchise imo.

New interview and interesting answers!

http://news.moviefone.com/2013/02/19...medium=twitter

Quote:
I'm seeing Nicholas Hoult's name on some shortlists to play a young Han Solo.
I don't know anything, but I literally would not be surprised if something like that happened. I almost said something to Nick today about it, like, "You know, I wouldn't be surprised if you find yourself in one of those." But I have no idea, even though I'm working with Simon Kinberg every day and he is involved with that franchise, I have no information about that. It's just my own intuition.

Moviefone: Of course, he's going to be in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" first. Have you gotten everyone back on board?

Bryan Singer: Yeah, so far there's still some to come, but for now it's Ian, Patrick, Hugh, Anna, Ellen Page, and then Fassbender, McAvoy, Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence.

What's it like to return to "X-Men" after taking such a long break?

Well, it's nice, particularly because it's such an epic movie. It's going to have both casts and additional players. I think if it was just a straight sequel to "First Class" or to "X-Men 3," I don't think it would be as interesting to me. But because it combines all the cast and the world in a way that hasn't yet been done in an X-Men movie, that's what really made it appealing.

Will we see them interact with their younger selves since the plot has them traveling through time?

I don't want to tell you that. Maybe.

I think we're all dying to see them in the same scenes and see what that's like.

The story really works and it accommodates that. It's not frivolous to have all the actors there. It's purposeful.
Important answers here to me:

- More returning actors to come!!

- and New players!!

the speculation can continue

He didn't mention Shawn Ashmore!

At the moment we have probably the best actors from First Class.

We already know who one addattional player Is.And we also know actor will be cast as Nixon.Havok,Banshee,and Emma Frost might be recast.with human characters,and returing characters in both 1973 and future you have a lot to focus on plus Sentinles.Bryan may be bringing back the entire brotherhood from end of first Class as well as Rose Byrne as Moira.
We may getting a couple more returnees In future scenes as well.

You can also tell doing straight sequel to first Class or Last Stand doesn't Intrest him as much.Of course here comes the die hard first classers coming with their hatred.

Bryan doesn't conisder him In same league as other confirmed OT returnees.

One exception I would say Is Rose Byrne.

I know I'm jumping the gun but who do you guys think will direct the X- film after DOFP?

Singer ,Vaughn or a totally new director?


2) Do you think it will be a continuation of the FC story, a new continuity totally, or a new trilogy set post X-3 in the original continuity?
