According to Comic Book Movie, on Thursday, producer Lauren Shuler-Donner of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" as well as the film's cast joined "Good Morning America" for an exclusive Times Square interview. Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, and Ellen Page delve into the Bryan Singer directed mutant apocalypse.

It's been 14 years since the first "X-Men" film made it's debut and Jackman gives credit to Shuler-Donner for the opportunity to play the Wolverine. He had expressed that there is a bit of gratitude to gather together in a reunion-like fashion. Anchorperson Robin Roberts said she had already seen a screening of the film and had expressed how much fun it was to watch.

Roberts also mentioned that she couldn't figure out how Stewart was able to return for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" since his "vaporization" in the third "X-Men: The Last Stand" film. Stewart had to emphasize that some people just don't stay until the end of the credits to see film extras that needed to be viewed in order to connect the films together. He said if she had stuck around, she would have seen that his character wasn't killed off.

Ellen Page apparently plays a rather powerful character as her future self and she talked briefly about how her character "took no prisoners". Notably, there's a twist that they didn't want to reveal from the film that differentiated it from the comic book, but this is something already well known around the web. Page's character, Kitty Pride, was the subject in question who was suppose to go back in time to save mutant-kind in the comic book. However, Jackman's character, Logan, takes on the task in the film. The reason for this is because since Logan exists in both timelines, it would make sense for him to co-exist with himself in the past since he's still alive in the days of President Nixon.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens in theaters May 23.
