Director Bryan Singer has been making excellent use of Twitter lately, as he’s been using the social media website to actually break casting news for the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now, as production on the film looms closer, Singer has started teasing the actual film on Twitter. Just yesterday he shared an image of the wheelchairs for the young and old versions of Professor X, and today he’s revealed a photo of a set that will look very familiar to fans of the past X-Men films. Moreover, Singer’s caption of “How many days until Comic-Con?” appears to confirm that Days of Future Past will indeed have a panel at the convention as we previously surmised.
Hit the jump to take a look at the set photo. The film stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Hugh Jackman, and Peter Dinklage. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on July 18, 2014.
It’s February, so you know what that means: it’s time to start making preparations for this summer’s Comic-Con. Public badges for SDCC 2013 went on sale this morning and, quite amazingly, completely sold out in an hour and a half. Indeed, demand for Comic-Con only seems to be growing as time goes on, and it appears that thousands of fans will be descending on San Diego this coming July to catch a sneak peek of upcoming film and TV fare and to peruse the ginormous convention floor for some geek-friendly finds.
Last year was my second time to attend SDCC, but I found that the lines and overall madness descending on Hall H had grown exponentially since the previous year. My more experienced colleagues confirmed that demand for the 6500 seater was higher and crazier than ever before. If these badge sales are any indication, the nuttiness is likely to continue this year. Hit the jump as we wildly speculate about which films and TV shows might be making hosting panels at Comic-Con 2013.
