Just a few days after Bryan Singer provided yet another casting update for X-Men: Days of Future Past on Twitter, the director spilled more details about the film's plot. In an interview with Empire Online on Monday, Jan. 28, Singer mentions how big of a scope the next X-Men film will be as well as bringing back the cast from previous films in the franchise. The film is on track to debut in theaters on July18, 2014.
Singer gave the following reason for why he is revealing information about the film on Twitter:
I’ll be using Twitter as an avenue. I think Twitter is an amazing thing. Very often something gets out there in the rumour-sphere, and people start building up an impression of something that might not be right. So what I want to do is just little by little drop out whatever information is official.
Singer is also taking into account the events of every film in the series so far to create a very unifying storyline and do justice to the characters as a whole. Singer said, "The film has a lot of aspects of the comic. 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."
The directors mentions talking to other filmmakers about the idea of time travel and how other films like Back to the Future have used time travel successfully as a plot development. Singer stated, "You have to create your rules and stick with them. We get to bring both casts together. We've cracked it in a way that it makes sense. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible."
