X-Men : First Class Sequel Is Now ‘Days of Future Past’

X-Men : First Class was a big surprise for everybody last year, who all had bad tastes in their mouths from the atrocities that were X-Men 3 and X-Men Origins : Wolverine. Taking things back to the past to see how it all started made it fresh and with a smart script to boot. The inevitable sequel talks of course came afterwards, though what direction would take was unknown. Until now.

In an interview with IGN, Bryan Singer announced that the First Class sequel will be heading to “Days of Future Past” territory. They plan to hit upon some aspects of the story while expanding upon the direction they took the previous movie. Matthew Vaughan is still on to direct with an anticipated release around July 2014.

If you’re not aware of this story, this was a very short 2-issue run during the classic Chris Claremont/John Byrne days about a post-apocalyptic future where the Sentinels ran society and either imprisoned or killed most of the mutant population. It’s always been hinted at that this is where the X-Men’s future was heading in the books since the 1981 storyline, but nothing concrete came out of it. It’s still exciting to see them take this next step, though one has to wonder if we really are getting our dream of actual Sentinels this time rather than the lopped-off head of one courtesy of Wolverine back in X-Men 3.
