I love a good time-travel movie, and I think that’s what makes me even more excited about the latest X-Men movie, Days of Future Past.
As the premise of the story was released it soon became apparent that not only were the cast of First Class returning but the cast of the original X-Men Trilogy would also be part of the prequel/reboot.
In First Class there was a cameo from Wolverine and a super cool appearance from Rebecca Romjin, but now in Days of Future Past we get such treats like Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto, not to mention Halle Berry as Storm, Anna Paquin as Rogue, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Ellen Page as Shadowcat, and James Marsden as Cyclops (no word of Jean Grey though…)
The brief description of the story on IMDb says that Wolverine plays a major part as he’s sent back to the past by the X-Men to change a major historical event that could have a huge global impact on man and mutant kind. So as well as Wolverine having his own feature film out this year he also takes another starring role in the latest X-Men movie, and with rumours of some sort of tie in to Superman – brain frazzled.
I can’t wait to see how the old cast meets new and the appearance of the Sentinels, but for now the X-Men panel at Comic Con gave us a fabulous preview in the form of Entertainment Weekly posters merging the past and present.
