X-Men: Days Of Future Past confirmed by Bryan Singer

X-Men director/producer Bryan Singer has confirmed the title for the X-Men: First Class follow-up will be X-Men: Days Of Future Past .

The director spoke to IGN recently and offered an update on the high-profile sequel, revealing the film’s title and production status.

“It’s being written right now and it will start shooting in a few months,” he says. “It’s going to be very ambitious.

“It’s called Days Of Future Past and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things. I just don’t want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I’m totally excited about it.”

Days Of Future Past is also the title of an ambitious ‘80s X-Men comic that involved criss-crossing alternate timelines, future dystopias and a plot involving serious social unrest.

If that’s the comic Vaughn will be using as a basis for his sequel, we’re very excited indeed – not least because those alternate timelines could cross into Singer’s own X-Men films in extraordinary ways.
