‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ to Reunite All of the X-Men from All Four Movies

Hugh Jackman reveals X-Men: Days of Future Past will include all of the X-MenLast month, it was confirmed that Hugh Jackman will return as The Wolverine in the X-Men: First Class sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. The actor revealed that he will have more screen time in the follow-up, and teased that every actor who has appeared in a previous X-Men movie will be suiting up for the sequel.

"You wouldn't have enough room on the page after you've listed them all. Every other actor who's ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it. There's an element of time travel and, naturally, it will be action-packed."

The story is based on Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book arc in issues #141 and #142 of Ultimate X-Men from 1982. The time travel aspect Hugh Jackman mentioned stems from an alternate future where an important Senator is killed by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, which leads to all mutants being hunted down by Sentinels.

Bryan Singer is directing from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg. Production is scheduled to begin in Montreal very soon.

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014.

    I'm thinking a teaser at the end of The Wolverine that brings back Phoenix and sets up DoFP.

            @narrator Days of Future Past is kind of like an event film, like The Avengers almost. It's too big and it needs a lot of build-up to work. I wish First Class got a smaller sequel with the same characters from the first before jumping into this story-arc. Days of Future Past shouldn't be apart of First Class' trilogy (or whatever it's aiming for), it should be a stand-alone film in the X-Men franchise that could have been built up a lot better first.

            But we'll see how it goes. Maybe Days of Future Past can be a two-film event or something. I don't want it rushed. It needs to be done right. Then once it's over with, we can continue First Class with a sequel with just those characters alone again...unless DOFP ties itself in with the present and doesn't continue.

              I had hopes that this new series of X-men movies would be good after i saw the 1st but after this...


              • narrator • 3 years ago

                I'm familiar with the comic, @corey, and I'm simply saying not all things translate well onto the big screen. The films don't have the same continuity that the comics had, clearly, and most of us could give a damn what happens to any of them at the end of the day - thus the need for directly including all of the prior on-screen characters is almost obsolete in my opinion. My biggest concern, as @moviegeek and @ROFLitschristian pointed out, is whether we'll even have enough time with these characters to connect and/or reconnect with them, or if they'll just be forced cameos to give us the illusion of a tied together universe. Nothing against the idea, I just don't see it happening in a way that'll work. As you said, this seems like a clusterf*ck waiting to happen, but I'll remain hopeful for the project. I agree with you that most audiences will see this as a continuation of X3 now that Wolverine's playing a pivotal part in the film, which sucks. First Class deserves more recognition.


                • corey • 3 years ago

                  @SpaceCowboy Could be a possible multi-parter. In fact, it might just finish out the First Class trilogy. My only complaint that the film is called X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's going to be known as X4 and I kind of wish it was clear that this is a sequel to First Class, not a sequel to X3, which I feel audiences will think with all the returning X-Men in it. Yeah...it really is all a clusterf*ck.


                  • SpaceCowboy • 3 years ago

                    @corey I'm familiar with the story arc (even though I haven't read up on it). I meant that something as grand scale as including all past X-Men might not translate so well to film. DOFP might have to stretch out to 3 hours to work. Or be a multi-parter.

                                          of course too many people whole the world have been waiting very very long time for reunion from X-men trilogy movie, X-men Origins Wolverine, and First Class 2011 !!

                                          - ( Famke Janssen ) White Phoenix of the Crown ?? YES PLEASE ! because after she did as Phoenix turned into Dark Phoenix in X3, next she as White Phoenix of the Crown she is stronger.

                                          - Halle Berry should come as a leading actress ( Onroro Munroe / Storm )

                                          - Rebecca Romijn as Raven Darkholme / Mystique she should come as an older Mystique, in X-men Days of Future Past 2014, she will have to work for Apocalypse, and she encounters with Scarlet Witch, Rogue, gambit, Bishop, Nightcrawler,

                                          - Charlize Theron would be OK as Emma Frost ! I agree

                                          - Angelina Jolie would be Great as Scarlet Witch she is pretty good !

                                          - Anna Paquin, Kelly Hu and Ellen Page they should come again

                                          - Apocalypse ?? Mr Sinister ?? Holocaust ?? and Exodus ?? YEEESSSSS bring them as major villains face big battle force !!!

                                          Bruce Davison should come again as Senator Kelly
