If you’re not excited about the X-Men: First Class sequel just yet, the just-announced title of the film may help get your pulse racing a bit.
Producer Bryan Singer announced last week the follow-up to last year’s First Class will be called X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Comic book fans will recognize the title from an iconic arc by the same name.
The fan-favorite story arc alternates between the present and a future where the X-Men fail to overturn Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and now mutants are forced to live in internment camps. It’s up to the present day X-Men to prevent this timeline from occurring.
“I can say it’s being written right now and it will start shooting in a few months. It’s going to be very ambitious,” Singer told IGN. “It’s called ‘Days of Future Past’ and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things. I just don’t want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I’m totally excited about it.”
Of course, just because the movie is using the title doesn’t necessarily mean it can or will follow the arc of the popular storyline. But if it did and did it right…..WOW!
