Director Bryan Singer tweeted out a photo of him holding up the script for X-Men: Days of Future Past and on the front is a quote from Charles Darwin called "Origin of the Species." This could very well be the quote that opens up the movie. Here's what it says,
"As new species are formed through natural evolution, others will become rarer and rarer, and finally extinct. The forms which stand in closest competition with those undergoing modification and improvement will naturally suffer most."
Singer's X-Men movies have always opened up with a voiceover from Charles Xavier. Maybe he'll be quoting Darwin this time around. The image came with the folioing tweet:
This is going to be such a cool movie! The fact that we will see all the original X-Men and First Class X-Men coexisting in the same movie is pretty mind blowing. As of right now it looks like Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hault will all be returning for the sequel.
The film is based on 1981 issue of Uncanny X-Men which came from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin. The story is set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been thrown in concentration camps, Sentinels are patrolling America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted down and killed. The present day X-Men are forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring.
The movie will be released in theaters on July 18th, 2014.
