- X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
When we first got wind of the story that both the young and old incarnations of Professor X and Magneto will be featured in the highly anticipated X-Men Mega film, Days of Future Past, fans started speculating that we just might get to see all four actors cross paths in the film. Sadly young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) has crushed that idea.

In an interview with Empire, he said that he doesn't "think we get any scenes together, sadly. I don't think there's any future self talking to past self."
This could be miss direction by McAvoy as Bryan Singer doesn’t like to convey to many plot points to audiences until they have seen the film. Maybe its just to early to tell, as things might change moving forward, who knows.
Set for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
The film's cast continues to grow, but thus far includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.
