‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel Titled ‘Days of Future Past’?

http://screenrant.com/x-men-first-cl...t-kofi-177114/

There is word circulating that 20th Century Fox has reached out to the MPAA to secure a title for the studio’s forthcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class - and if reported accurately, that title is going to send a tidal wave of geek freak-outs across the Interwebs. The title in question is “Days of Future Past” – which remains one of the most famous and celebrated X-Men storylines of all time.

More interestingly, however: “Days of Future Past” was also a X-Men story that dealt with time travel and multiple timelines – meaning that director Matthew Vaughn and Fox could be (finally) trying to organize the convoluted continuity of the X-Men film franchise, using a tactic similar to what J.J. Abrams did with his Star Trek reboot.

Here is the quote from AICN reporter “The Kidd,” which first kicked off this rumor:

One of my little birds Weapon X recently dropped me some information that 20th Century Fox had recently registered the title DAYS OF FUTURE PAST with the MPAA Title Registration Bureau. The Bureau exists for studios and productions companies to stake their claims on certain titles that they intend to release and distribute, so that others can stray from using a similar title.

The title “Days of Future Past” is taken from the two-issue Uncanny X-Men comic book storyline written in 1981 by legendary X-Men writer/artist team Chris Claremont and John Byrne. In the story, the X-Men are trying to stop the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (led by Mystique) from killing an anti-mutant political figure named Senator Robert Kelly. This pivotal event creates a separate timeline in which the X-Men fail to stop the Kelly assassination, and as a result, mutants are hunted, imprisoned and exterminated by humanity. One X-Man from that future dystopia manages to travel back in time and warn the present day X-Men, who ultimately stop the assassination (though the two timelines both remain in existence).


The X-Men Battle Sentinels in 'Days of Future Past'

Given where X-Men: First Class left things, it’s easy to see how “Days of Future Past” could be reconfigured to focus on Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and his Brotherhood going after a key political figure, and the X-Men team being visited by a dimension-hopping mutant to be forewarned of what happens if they don’t stop the assassins. “Days of Future Past” also had the mutant-killing Sentinel robots, an older version of Wolverine, etc. – all of which would be awesome to see onscreen (not to mention a Terminator-style future dystopia). A “DoFP” plot could also open the door for the franchise to introduce time-hopping X-Men like Bishop or Cable to the mix.

In terms of the movies: “Days of Future Past” would give Vaughn and company a way to end all this continuity madness once and for all. If time travel and alternate timelines are successfully introduced into the X-Men movie universe, then that would be a perfect explanation for why the original X-Men trilogy (and Wolverine) have plot points that contradict First Class, while allowing all of the films to remain valid (unlike the ‘forget the past’ approach of the Spider-Man movie reboot).



“Days of Future Past” is an awesome story on its own – and I for one would welcome anything that could straighten out the movie continuity in satisfactory fashion. First Class was tormented all through development for not being a clear prequel OR reboot, but instead some weird amalgamation of both. I think a lot of X-Men fans would agree with the sentiment that it’s time to clean house. J.J. Abrams successfully cleared away decades of Star Trek continuity when he spun-off a new timeline for his 2009 reboot, which allowed him the freedom to tell his own stories using familiar characters.

Finally, introducing alternate timelines would give Fox many new options for how they approach their other upcoming X-Men films: including already-in-production sequel The Wolverine, and the already-planned X-Men 4. In fact, “First Class Continuity (FCC)” and/or “Original Trilogy Continuity (OTC)” could be terms we all start throwing around pretty soon. Comic book geekery at its best.

X-Men: Days of Future Past - if that is indeed the title – will be in theaters on July 18th, 2014.

Count on it. He brings in viewers, his character doesn't age, and he's probably the only actor in the series that was so good that the audience wouldn't accept a recasting.

I figured they were just going to ignore the other four movies and run with the concept behind First Class. I can't believe they are actually trying to make the movies coexist.

The whole thing needs some time to cool off (get it away from Fox, who have proven time and time again they **** up franchise type titles going back decades) and rebooted. Let it fade.

They won't though because in spite of not being very good these movies make money.

Yea, this is what should be done. First Class was good. They should just ignore the other flicks and run with First Class.....although, Jackman was in First Class, so they technically messed up already.

In my eyes the series has been horribly botched and First Class tied in too heavily with the other movies to be considered a reboot.

If they plan on explaining this away using time travel... well... that is a tool often used in comics and it just makes things worse.

The Days of Future Past is among the holy scripts to comic nerds. If they do this, they best not **** it up. If it's done right, they will have a hit on their hands.

The X-men movies could and should have been so much better than they were.

I thought X1 and X3 were decent when they first came out. After rewatching, X1 hasn't aged well at all and I'd venture to call it crap, while X3 doesn't have much value outside of the action scenes.

Wolverine: Origins was OK. I liked Jackman and Schrieber (sp?) and Ryan Reynolds was great for the 10 minutes he was involved. They royally ****ed up the timeline having Gambit and Blob as 30-somethings in the 80s though, as well as Cyclops and Emma Frost in their late teens. Not to mention the shitcan they put on Deadpool. It has entertainment value but not really a good movie.

X2 and First Class on the other hand were pretty good movies. X2 was completely badass and I really can't think of anything bad to say about it, although it's been a while since I've seen it. Nightcrawler's opening scene, Colossus' first appearance in metal form, and for some reason the scene at Iceman's house with Pyro- all grade A stuff. First Class had the best acting with Fassbender and McAvoy. Magneto is low-key one of my favorite X-Men characters so it was good to see him being such a gangster. My only complaint was that the other mutants were lame (Banshee, tornado guy, and firefly stripper girl).

I'm surprised we've seen so many X-Men movies with no story revolving around the Sentinels. This could be really good if they don't **** it up.
