Back in June, 20th Century Fox registered for the movie title 'Days of Future Past' with the MPAA. Now producer Bryan Singer has officially confirmed the title of the movie, which is the sequel to X-Men Origins: First Class, is indeed X-Men: Days of Future Past.
"It's going to be very ambitious. It's called 'Days of Future Past,' and it deals with aspects of that comic, and also some very new things," said Singer to IGN. "I don't want to give anything away, but Matthew Vaughn is directing it, and we're very excited about it."
The story arc in the comics deals with time travel and Sentinels—the latter being the most important part and what really needs to be on the big screen. However, it seems using the time travel theme will play a part in taking all past X-Men films and creating some kind of continuity within the X-Men movie universe.
Sounds like Singer, Vaughn and Fox are all trying to take what they did with X-Men Origins: First Class and bring it all together full circle so they can bring Wolverine back into the "rebooted" X-Men universe. And what's the best way to do that? Take time travel and mess with continuity to blend it all together a la what J.J. Abrams did with his Star Trek movie reboot. (Just our theory.)
Stay tuned to The Daily SuperHero as more information is sure to be released about the next X-Men film now that is has a new title.
