Marvel/Fox creative consultant Mark Millar has told SFX.co.uk that fans of the X-Men can expect to see plenty of Sentinels in Days of Future Past.
He said that while he didn’t want to give too much away “the Sentinels are a big feature of this story”.
“They will be cool and this will deliver on all of the teasers,” Millar said “We’ve all been waiting for this ever since X-Men: The Last Stand showed us one of their heads. Now it is finally coming, and we only have to pay ten quid to see it in the cinema.”
Millar went on to say that the new film felt similar to the recent Star Trek reboot.
“I think the best comparison I can give is to Star Trek – that is an ensemble but it never feels as if there is not enough time with any one character,” he continued.
“Or maybe Lost – that is an ensemble but every character gets their own moment to shine. So as long as everyone is there for a reason there doesn’t need to be a problem with so many characters. This is a beautifully structured film, and it is a time travel story so the structure has to be especially strong.”
Millar also confirmed that a third Kick-Ass film is being planned.
“Kick-Ass 3 is going to be the last one though. I told Universal this and they asked me, ‘What does that mean?’ I said, ‘It means that this is where it all ends.’ They said, ‘Do they all die at the end?’. I said, ‘Maybe, because this is a realistic superhero story.
“And if someone doesn’t have a bullet proof vest like Superman and doesn’t have Batman’s millions then eventually he is going turn around the wrong corner and get his head kicked in or get shot in the face [laughs].
“So Kick-Ass needs to reflect that. There has to be something dramatic at the end, he cannot do this for the rest of his life.”
Kick-Ass 2 opens on June 28 and X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on July 18, 2014.
