So, how exactly is the X-Men universe going to be worked out properly in order to handle the crazy story line that is X-Men: Days of Future Past? There’s been a lot of speculation by fans, including this reporter, about how Bryan Singer and company will be handling the alternate timeline when presented on the big screen. Thankfully the filmmaker steps out to give us all a little bit of information, but not enough to completely answer our questions, either.
The scope of X-Men: Days of Future Past is rather large, not only in regards to the idea of time travel but where it will physically take place. Apparently we’re going to see our time traveler Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) go here, there and everywhere around the globe:
“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.”
Okay, but that doesn’t entirely answer our question. X-Men fans want to know if this will be seriously messing with the continuity and, dare we say it, eliminates any trace of X-Men 3 from the audiences’ conscious. Sadly we won’t be getting our wish but there is always the distinct possibility that Singer and company will alter the future so much that it could void some events that happened in the third film:
“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. 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.”
Well, fans can still hope and dream that whatever X-Men: Days of Future Past will turn out, it’ll be fantastic.
