A few weeks ago, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer showed off a set being built that looked very much like the metallic hallways that led to Charles Xavier’s Cerebro in his original X-Men films. Now, the director has released another image of the device being constructed. It’s just in the beginning stages, but it looks like we’ll be seeing the mutant-tracking machine from the original films again. Check out the image below.
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 so far it includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Omar Sy and Peter Dinklage.
