Director Bryan Singer has unveiled a new image from the set of the superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. While we don’t get a look at any of the many, many mutant characters from the film, this image does give us our first look at President Nixon in the Oval Office, surrounded by his advisors. Singer told us earlier this year that Nixon would be a character in the 1970s-set pic, adding that it would be “an interesting casting choice.” It’s tough to make out the actor playing Nixon in this image, but it’s definitely clear that something occurs during the 70s portion of Days of Future Past that catches the attention of the Commander in Chief.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Halle Berry. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014. [Update: Singer tweeted another set photo today with the note “GOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!” You can check it out after the jump]
