X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - Wolverine and Beast in 1973
Bryan Singer has sure enjoyed sharing some cool production photos from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past. He's fully embraced the power of social media. Today, he tweeted out a great photo of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Nicholas Hoult as Beast in 1973. The image came along with the following note:
Welcome to 1973.
I've enjoyed everything I've seen so far from the film which also stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. The movie will be released on July 18th, 2014.
The film is based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
