SDCC 2013: Fox Brings Out Past & Future X-Men For ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Panel

SDCC 2013: X-Men: Days of Future Past panel banner

Saturday at San Diego Comic Con was a day for the big sci-fi movies and 20th Century Fox had a huge presence, giving fans a surprise first look at the next film in the X-Men franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer, writer/producer Simon Kidberg, producer Lauren Shuller-Donner, and producer Todd Hallowell, along with actors Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Ian McKellan, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Omar Sy, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, and Hugh Jackman were all on stage to show off the new movie.

Singer was the first to come out on stage to introduce the cast. The film is still in production in Vancouver, with about a month left to go. However, they showed a solid chunk of footage from the film. It started off with the older Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in the future sending Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) into the past with a mission to meet the younger version of the Professor (James McAvoy). He also needs to find the younger Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who the older mutant (Ian McKellen) explains took a darker path. There were then shots of Wolverine interacting with the 70′s version of the X-Men team, and plenty of action thrown in for good measure. The footage got the whole crowd excited and it made me personally feel a lot more confident for the upcoming film. Even the brief footage helped to set up the plot and explained why both the new and old set of characters are in the same movie.

Bryan Singer described the production as a logistical nightmare due to the large cast and their various schedules, but he also said he enjoyed the process, citing The Usual Suspects as helping him being able to handle an ensemble cast.

Patrick Stewart talked about the luck he had to have experienced working with a large loving ensamble not once, but twice thanks to the X-Men and Star Trek.

Everyone on stage said how excited they were to be back, with special attention being paid to the return of Bryan Singer.

Omar Sy was introduced as Bishop and talked a bit about his character, which, if you don’t know, is one of the future X-Men and he can control energy.

The panel was asked about the possibility of a Deadpool movie in the future, but no one would confirm or deny it. Bryan Singer said that any decision on that would be made by people higher up than him.

When asked if Gambit would ever show up in any of the movies, Singer responded that they are exploring all possibilities.

Singer was then asked about Quicksilver’s role in the movie, while being unable to address what would happen with the character showing up in The Avengers movie. They said that the costume wouldn’t be either the green or blue version of the costume, but would be “a 70′s version.”

Hugh Jackman was asked what the difference between the X-Men movies and the musicals he has been in and took the chance to improvise Wolverine: The Musical (and broke out into song about “hacking and slashing”). He also said that he had walked around the convention floor in full Wolverine costume and no one had stopped him, though some people commented that his Wolverine was “too tall.”

This one is for real, people. The footage shown could not have made me more excited to see this movie, and I think everyone will feel the same when they get their first glimpse.
