Bryan Singer On ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’: “Charles (James McAvoy) Is In A Very Dark Hole… Erik (Michael Fassbender) Has Been Gathering Power”
Talking to Empire Magazine, Bryan Singer shared a number details about his upcoming X-Men flick, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ “It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York,” he says. “It’s got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.” That story for the film is inspired by the classic Chris Claremont/John Byrne “Days of Future Past” comic-book arc, which takes place in a possible future where mutantkind has been virtually wiped out by giant robots called Sentinels. A rogue group of X-fugees, led by Wolverine and Storm, try to save the future by changing the past, so they send one of their number back in time to hook up with the early X-Men.
Bryan Singer confirmed that ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is not a straight adaptation, though. “It’s its own story, inspired by Days Of Future Past”. The comic doesn’t feature Professor X or Magneto, but ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ the movie operates as a follow-up to ‘X-Men: First Class’ and the original trilogy. “I’d say it’s not a sequel to one of the others. It’s an inbetwequel — that’s what I call it, for lack of a better word. It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class.” Meaning that we see two sets of Professor Xs and Magnetos: the Patrick Stewart-plus-Ian McKellen vintage, and the James McAvoy-plus-Michael Fassbender younger versions introduced in First Class. “They’re in a radically different place,” explains Singer of the latter. “Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power.”
