Fanboys around the globe all got a collective geek-attack, clutching their keyboards and retweeting director Bryan Singer's Tweet which featured a 6 second montage of images from the upcoming X-Men movie, Days of Future Past.
The movie is an adaptation of one of the most beloved and revered classic comic book story lines of the 1970's, written by comic scribe Chris Claremont and illustrated by John Byrne, which told the story of a post- apocalyptic world in which mutants are practically extinct and the X-Men are nearly gone with the exception of a scattered few.
The cast combines the original X-Men stars with the new stars from X-Men: First Class. The lineup includes Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy playing Professor Xavier (older and younger) and Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender playing Magneto.
Of course anyone who saw The Wolverine knows that Hugh Jackman will return as old Wolvie, along with X-Men alums Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rouge) and Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), rounded out with Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Lucas Till (Havok), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver).
