Bryan Singer’s latest tweet teases an historical event

June 5th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

The latest tweet by director Bryan Singer show Vietnam War protesters waving flags for both North Vietnam and Vietnam. It came with the note:


So it seems this painful chapter in American history will apparently make it into this film, much like the Cuban Missile Crisis was in X-Men: First Class. How much of a role will the Vietnam War play in the film remains to be seen.

“The film will be based on the comic book storyline “Days of Future Past,” which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s run and 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.”

Singer has managed to gather an impressive cast which also includes James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto and Evan Peters.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released in theaters on July 18, 2014.
