New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Concept Art Feat Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) & Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)
While we await “a full day of X-Men surprises” on January 27th, Keith Christensen has revealed these three pieces of concept art for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Acting as a sequel to both ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and ‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ includes cast members from both: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till return from ‘X-Men: First Class.’
Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Peters and Josh Helman round out the film’s principal cast. Co-written, produced and directed by Bryan Singer, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is based on the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline “Days of Future Past” by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. The film is scheduled to hit both 2D and 3D theaters on May 23rd.
Bryan Singer launched the’ X-Men’ movie franchise with the first two films, ‘X-Men’ and ‘X2,’ and has been a guiding influence in each subsequent X-Men film by producing. Matthew Vaughn, director of ‘X-Men: First Class,’ will produce ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ with his fellow co-writer on the film, Simon Kinberg, and Lauren Shuler Donner. The screenplay is written by Kinberg, Vaughn, and Jane Goldman, with Singer writing the story. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will be based on a classic comic book story arc that unfolded in two issues of Marvel Comics’ ‘Uncanny X-Men’ in 1981, from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin.
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
