Bryan Singer confirms that the sequel to X-Men: First Class is titled X-Men: Days of Future Past
August 2 2012
In keeping with films adapted from Marvel Comics, it was rumoured earlier this week that the sequel to Fox's X-Men: First Class would draw from the Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past storyline, and now producer Bryan Singer has confirmed the rumour.
Speaking to IGN, Singer confirmed "It's called 'Days of Future Past', it deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things."
In the Marvel comic book storyline, Days of Future Past ran in issues #141 and 142 way back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of Magneto's Brotherhood killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
This would be good news for fans since if it comes to pass the way it should, we will finally see The Sentinels as they were meant to be seen.
Singer also has hopes to expand the X-Men franchise to become as complete a world as the interconnected film universe a similar way of Marvel's Avengers Assemble.
