We know that the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past will combine both the cast of the original X-Men films and 2011's X-Men: First Class, but where does it take place in relation to those films? Speaking with Empire Magazine, director Bryan Singer revealed the placement of the film on the franchise's timeline.

"It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class. Singer also coined a new word for what to call the film, "Id say its not a sequel to one of the others. Its an inbetwequel thats what I call it, for lack of a better word."

Previous reports on the film have revealed it to take place in a few other locations beyond simply America, but Singer says that's just the first layer and the film goes even more places.

It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York, he says. Its got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.

Speaking about the "1970s" portion of the film, Singer revealed where we will find Charles Xavier and Magneto at the start of the film: Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power.

Coming to theaters on May 23, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.
