Director Bryan Singer has tweeted out another production photo from X-Men: Days of Future Past featuring the wheelchairs that will be used by Patrick Stewart's Professor Xavier in X-Men and James McAvoy's younger Xavier in X-Men: First Class, both of whom will be reprising their roles in the new movie. The photo came with a little caption saying, "Hello Old Friends."
The movie is based on Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline, Days of Future Past, that ran in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981. 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.
So far the other confirmed cast members for the film include Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Hugh Jackman.
The movie is set to be released on July 18th, 2014.
