I'm extremely excited about what Matthew Vaughn is planning for his sequel to X-Men: First Class. I loved the hell out of the first movie, and I have no doubt that the sequel will but just as awesome. At this point we know virtually nothing about the plot other than it would be a continuation of the story that we've already seen. We also know Fox has been working on a couple other X-Men movie ideas.
Something interesting has been spotted that might give us some insight on one of these X-Men films coming from Fox, and it involves an alternate timeline. The fine folks over at AICN got some intel that the studio recently registered the title Days of Future Past with the MPAA Tital Registration Bureau.
What does that mean? Well, if you are familiar with the X-Men comics you know there was a two-issue story arc published back in 1981. The story follows Kitty Pryde, who travels back in time to warn the present day X-Men that in the future Sentinels rule over the United States and all mutants are placed in internment camps. To stop the chain of events leading to that, the X-Men have to stop the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly.
This may have nothing to do with the X-Men: First Class franchise, but it could end up being used for another X-Men reboot that the studio might be planning or for X-Men 4. Regardless, it's a cool storyline that could make for a great movie! I'd love to see finally see the Sentinals up on the big screen! What do you think about this storyline as a possible movie?
Here's the Plot from the comic:
The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinatingSenator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammateKitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future.
