X-Men Days of Future Past: Bryan Singer Explains Timeline

by at . Comments

It is pretty obvious when the X-Men: Days of Future Past cast shocked us by appearing at Comic-Con that both the “classic” X-Men heroes and the X-Men: First Class mutants will be joining forces for Bryan Singer’s film that lands May 23, 2014.

Although thrilled at the prospect of witnessing both Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen as Magneto and James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, it left us wondering how exactly it would work.

Sure, after seeing The Wolverine, we know how it starts… but where do we go from there? Singer was talking to Empire and filled in a few blanks.

"It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class,” Singer admitted.

He also divulged that it spans continents, as well as time. “It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York. It’s got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.”

We like what Singer has decided to call his film that combines franchise casts across different time continuums. “I’d say it’s not a sequel to one of the others. It’s an inbetwequel -- that’s what I call it, for lack of a better word.”
