- X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURES PAST
Ever since the release of the awful, X-Men: Last Stand we have been hearing about a potential fourth X-Men film. Now we might have got a lousy X-Men: Wolverine Origins film and then a brilliant prequel, X-Men: First Class film, but this rumour still persisted.

Now we know that the next X-Men film will be entitled, X-Men: Days of Future’s Past, which will incorporate a time traveling element into the franchise, something that has got a lot of fans excited as fans have speculated that maybe, just maybe, this could be an amalgamation of the original X-Men Trilogy, as well as X-Men: First Class in this new film.
Patrick Stewart, who played Professor X in the original X-Men trilogy, recently attended the 2012 Montreal Comic Convention, where a fan asked him about returning to the series and he replied, "I think there is every possibility… Halle Berry! Famke Janssen! Rebecca Stamos! Anna Paquin!" Stewart then said, "Yes, I'll be reprising..."
Now whether Stewart is simple pulling our leg, remains to be seen as nothing was confirmed as yet. However seeing that X-Men 1 and 2 Director and First Class Producer, Bryan Singer spoke a while back about a potential cross over and said, “I think there’s a strong desire to broaden out the universe. The X-Men universe on its own is every bit as big as the Marvel universe and I think it’s time to reach out and explore it and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films, as Marvel’s done so well. You may see some of that, I don’t know.”
So taking into account Singer’s statement, it just might be that by X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature some of the original cast members as well as the First Class. But for now, we will just have to wait and see.
X-Men: Days of Future’s Past will be releasing in cinemas sometime in 2014 with principal photography starting in January/February 2013.
