Magneto Rises in New X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Set Photo
Bryan Singer tweeted a new photo from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which came with the following caption: "The dark knight rises." Of course, it's really Michael Fassbender's Magneto rising. I've also included a couple of other set photos featuring President Nixon and a protest.
The epic ensemble mutant cast also includes Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters and Boo Boo Stewart.
The movie comes out on July 18th, 2014, and 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.
