I think the 1970s is going to be the best character in the movie.
Interesting about the Wolverine mind swap point. If there is a mind swap that is irreversible, he would never go through with the Weapons X project. He would leave the gig after Vietnam, and never go through with Stryker's plans to join a group of mutant killers. It would definitively end Jackman's take on the character, and pretty much the character itself, unless of course there is another way he gets adamantium. For that reason, I don't see it being a mind swap with 70's Wolverine. Although given the grounded setting Singer has provided, physical time travel would push the envelope a little too far on the sci-fi side of things. If there is a mind swap, I see it being temporary. More than likely it is physical time travel.
It looks like Gregory Itzin is playing Nixon, he played President Charles Logan on 24. He does have the look of Nixon. I also spotted Michael Lerner in the picture on the couch. I wonder if he will be playing Kissinger.
That would be too perfect. Love that man!
Wait, what? I missed something... Can you please tell us in spoiler tags what you're referring to?
you haven't missed anything really
That would be great to see him as Nixon.
One of those on couch looks like he could be Kissinger In film.
Intresting thing Is In DOFP we actlly have actors as historical characters.In
first Class It was mostly newsreels exxcept forthe CIA director suspose to b John Mccone who was CIA director after JFK fired Allen Dulles after Bay of pigs during Kennedy and Johnson White Houses.
Yeah he was great as the evil President Logan and has been great in everything I have seen him in. It would be fitting if it was him.
Casting President Logan as Nixon would be Brillent on Bryan Singer's part
Itzin would make for inspired casting. Hmmm... *rubs goatee*
Yeah, and now I'll be disappointed when it turns out to be someone else.
I'm not sure if I like this connecting real-life events to the history of the X-Men again.
Anyway, I saw this picture from Lauren Shuler Donner's twitter
One possabilty Is that In Days of future past we will see how the X-Men men world broke off from real history.Maybe In 173 IS when public became aware of Mutants.
I don't mind using real-world events. It gives the story authenticity and makes it interesting and relatable. Also it's an obvious thing to do if going back in the past. Setting a story in the past but ignoring real history would seem weird.
not to mention that the historical background is one of the things many critics and viewers liked about FC.
It makes the movie more adult oriented, with a smart take, and less for kids. Lets say that the movie had elements to please all type of audiences.
Superpowers, x-men, colorful costumes, talented cast, and historical events. Its like the perfect formula.
I think it would be more interesting if Logan still willingly joined Stryker and underwent the adamantium bonding process hoping that it would lead him on the path to meet Jean, possibly saving her.
I checked the Days of future past wiki page and while It can be edited by anyone there Is Intresting rumor there.Lucas Till Is listed In cast.
Now Peter Dinklage,Omar Sy,Booboo Stewart,and Adan Cato are all listed as
to be announced characters.
It should be noted than unlike Rose Byrne,January Jones,Jason Flemyng,and
Caleb Laundry Jones he never siad he wouldn't be back for DOFP.
At least wiki Is better than Internet movie database edit which has Peter rumored as Puck
fassbender is the man, does he ever not look badass
this looks interesting
That's hilarious and awesome.
From what I've seen so far, I have a feeling this film will have some tremendous cinematography.
Who is the DP?
Pietro is there too! look at the right side on the bottom!
