Bryan Singer has been keeping busy on Twitter, teasing fans excited for the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, with images and casting updates. Today he's at it again and this time previewing the familiar halls of the basement of Xavier's School, leading down the hallway to the room where the mutant-detecting device Cerebro will be located.
I also thought I'd share the rumor that the recently cast Peter Dinklage may be playing Bolivar Trask, a military scientist who is well-known as the creator of the mutant-hunting robots known as Sentinels.
How that works into the plot... Well, the film is based on Chris Claremont's "Days of Future Past" series, which goes as follows:
The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future.
X-Men: Days of Future Past begins filming in mid-April in Montreal and will hit theaters on July 18, 2014.
