Simon Kinberg Confirms Next X-Men Movie to be Set in the ’90s


According to a recent interview with Simon Kinberg, the X-Men are finally heading to the 90’s in the film universe.

The 2011 film, X-Men: First Class, was set in the 1960’s and its follow-up, X-Men: Days of Future Past, took place in the 1970’s, and the next film about to release, X-Men: Apocalypse, is set in the 1980’s. So it is about damn time our favorite unitard wearing heroes crop up in the 90’s.

Kinberg, the producer of the franchise, confirmed in an interview the setting for the next installment would be the 90’s. However, he did not reveal if it was HIS next installment or director Josh Boone’s in-development New Mutants project.

Boone’s New Mutants is a film that will follow a whole different group of X-Men including Magik, Wolfsbane, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Warlock. However, some reports say that Alexandra Shipp‘s Storm (who will appear in this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse) and James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier playing major roles in the film as well.

Watch the First Trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse


A brand new trailer has been released for the next installment of the “X-Men” film franchise. X-Men: Apocalpyse from Bryan Singer is almost here but in the mean time check out the trailer featuring the first look at several characters including Jubilee and her iconic look from the animated series.

We also see Storm with a new bad ass style alongside Psylocke, Archangel, Nightcrawler and a young Jean Grey and Scott Summers (Cyclops) make short cameos as well. We even get a small glimpse at Apocalypse and finally a bald Professor Xavier!

In this upcoming film we are apparently moving closer and closer to the timelines of Days of Future Past and the original X-Men titles merging, so we’ll probably see some of the more familiar X-Men appear.

X-Men: Apocalypse will be landing in theaters May 27, 2016. Check out the brand new trailer below:

Bryan Singer Talks X-Men: Days of Future Past


Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently discussed the new project and why it is his most ambitious one yet. One of the reasons it is so highly anticipated is that both casts of from the original X-Men films and the most recent X-Men: First Class will appear. Singer talked about X-Men: Days of Future Past in an interview with Empire.

When speaking about the sheer magnitude of the film and those involved, Singer mentioned how it was to work with both casts of the previous films as well as the ideas of time travel!

It’s epic. I don’t think people realize how big this movie’s going to be. We get to bring both casts together. We’ve cracked it in a way that it makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel, string theory, multiverses and all that. You have to create your rules and stick with them. That’s why Terminator and Back To The Future work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible.”

In prospect of the combination cast, Singer addressed fans concerns that film will not adhere to the original source material.

It has a lot of aspects of the comic. The actual comic of Days Of Future Past had a whole ton of stuff going on, so it’s like any of these things; you have to distill it. But I think the fans will be pleased that some of the most exciting parts of Days Of Future Past are going to be connected to this movie.”

One of the major worries about X-Men: Days of Future Past has to do with continuity. Fans wonder whether the film will acknowledge the events of the previous films due to continuity issues, but Singer assures that every film in the series will be taken into account as canon.

“I’m taking into account every movie – I’m not just grabbing my first two movies and First Class and smashing them together. I’m taking into account the entire universe as it’s been laid out so far on the screen, and really respecting it and trying to work with that. People took things in various directions, so there’s some clean-up. But ultimately I’m not just ignoring them either.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past will hit theaters on July 18, 2014. Confirmed cast members for the film include Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Hugh Jackman.

X-Men “Days Of Future Past” Heading To The Silver Screen

Seminal X-Men story arc “Days Of Future Past,” will receive the big screen treatment, says producer Bryan Singer. The film will be a sequel to 2011’s X-Men: First Class, and while Singer didn’t say how true to the comic book the movie would be, but he did mention that some very new things would also be dealt with.

“It’s going to be very ambitious,” Singer says.

Singer says the film is still being written right now and will start shooting in a few months. Matthews Vaughn will return as director. While Singer couldn’t confirm the possibility of appearances of characters from the first four X-Men films, he did say that there was a strong desire to broaden out the universe.

“The X-Men universe is every bit on its own as big as the Marvel universe,” he says. “I think it’s time to reach out and explore it, and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films. So, you may see some of that.”

The story arc “Days Of Future Past” features writer/artist team Chris Claremont and John Byrne and ran through Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 in 1981. It deals with a dystopian alternative future where mutants are hunted by Sentinels and kept in internment camps. It stars Kitty Pryde, who transfers her mind through time into the younger present-day Kitty, who turns to the X-Men to prevent the political assassination plot that triggered the events. (This reality has been designated as Earth-811, by the way.)

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is scheduled for a summer 2014 release
