Director Matthew Vaughn, the man behind X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, has stayed close with Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, sharing information with him about the highly anticipated sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.
X-Men: Days of Future Past to possibly revolve around the Sentinels
According to Millar, it sounds like Vaughn is throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, into this follow-up to the critically acclaimed and fan adored first prequel.
Here's what we can expect.
"Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's X-Men meets The Terminator. You've got robots, you've got time travel, you've got superheroes - it's got everything in one film. Cost-wise it's going to go up, and ambitious-wise it's gone up. But Vaughn can handle it. Vaughn made Kick-Ass for $28 million.
That's exciting news, except the part where we have to wait until 2014 to see it. In terms of the robots, many are speculating that the giant Sentinels will play a major role in the storyline, something the fans have been clamoring for, for a long time.
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters July 18th, 2014 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
