“First Class” sequel officially titled “X-Men: Days of Future Past”


Posted by on

After months of speculation, we finally know the name for the upcoming sequel to “X-Men: First Class.” And no it’s not “X-Men: Second Class,” though we’d all kind of been hoping that would be the case.

In an interview with IGN, producer Bryan Singer confirmed the title will be “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The name is borrowed from the “Days of Future Past” storyline that originally appeared in the Uncanny X-Men back in 1981. The fan-favorite story arc alternates between the present and a future where the X-Men fail to overturn Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and now mutants are forced to live in internment camps. It’s up to the present day X-Men to prevent this timeline from occurring.

“I can say it’s being written right now and it will start shooting in a few months. It’s going to be very ambitious,” Singer told IGN. “It’s called ‘Days of Future Past’ and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things. I just don’t want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I’m totally excited about it.”

It’s worth noting that just because the sequel will be called “Days of Future Past” doesn’t mean the movie will necessarily have anything to do with the comic book. “First Class” didn’t borrow much story from the graphic novel that it took its name from, so this project could do the same thing. The title could imply that Fox is trying to bring together their “X-Men” films into one cohesive narrative, though, which would be a treat for fans of the franchise. Singer implied that we might be seeing some more crossovers between “X-Men” through “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: First Class” beyond just Hugh Jackman in the last film.

“I think there’s a strong desire to broaden out the universe,” Singer said. “The X-Men universe on its own is every bit as big as the Marvel universe and I think it’s time to reach out and explore it and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films, as Marvel’s done so well. You may see some of that, I don’t know.”

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” will hit theaters on July 18, 2014.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
