X-Men: Days of Future Past is shaping up to the most ambitious X-Men movie ever made. Hell! It's just a very ambitious film in general. This thing is going to be huge. In a recent interview with IGN , James McAvoy talked about the epicness of the film, saying,

"There’s an army of brilliant actors in that film. Bryan Singer is back at the helm. Potentially it’s going to be the biggest, most epic X-Men they’ve ever had. I think it’s the second biggest production Fox have ever embarked upon, behind Avatar. So they’re definitely going for it."

The actor then went on to talk about working with the cast of the film and even said that he shares a scene with Patrick Stewart! Seeing the young and old Charles Xavier coming face to face with each other should be interesting.

"His last day was my first day and that was it. Then we were done. But we did crossover and we do get a scene together. Getting to work with Hugh [Jackman] – who I christened Hugo Boss – was great....Getting to work with Michael [Fassbender] again was great. I spent a hell of a lot of time with Nick [Nicholas Hoult]. Weirdly the people that I spent the most time with acting-wise was not Michael this time, it was Hugh and Nick. And whilst I bemoaned the loss of my buddy Michael, it was more than made up for by the fact that Hugh and Nick are such amazing people."

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on May 23th, 2014.
