Magneto Does His Best Heisenberg In Recent X-Men: Days Of Future Past Photo
Soak it up while you can, X-Men: Days of Future Past fans. Director Bryan Singer officially wrapped production on his mutant sequel over the weekend, meaning that the steady stream of photos springing from his Canadian set like will slow to a trickle. Unless, that is, Singer uses social media to take fans inside his editing suite, which is entirely possible given the number of photos he shared over the past few months.
One of the last few images Tweeted by Singer (and shared above) shows Michael Fassbander’s Magneto doing his very best impersonation of the dreaded Heisenberg, capitalizing on the wild success of Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad. Kidding. Those sunglasses, though. I’m not sure they were fashionable in any decade. Fassbender’s rocking them in the 1970s as part of Future Past, terrorizing Prof. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his band of merry mutants as they try to repair a rift that will cause major problems for the mutants of a distant future.
Speaking of, an official still from Singer’s movie hit the ‘Net this morning, showing time-traveling Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) on the scene with young Xavier and Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult), aka Beast. The studio shared this image:
And Singer, of course, Tweeted this photo signifying the official end of principal photography on Days.
Now that Singer’s off the set, it will be very interesting to see how much he shares from the next stage of this journey. Editing chews up so much of a director’s time, and it’s in those stages where sharing actually takes away from the finished product. Look how “quiet” Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb has become now that he’s off his set and editing his sequel. After documenting virtually every step of his production, Webb’s Twitter feed has slowed considerably as he preps the actual film. I suspect Singer will stay equally silent as Future Past whips into shape.
The next thing fans can look forward to regarding Future Past should be a trailer. Of course, one exists. Fox brought it to Comic-Con to amaze the Hall H crowd, and later let Singer share it at Fantasia Fest. And James Mangold included a sweet Days tease in the end credits for The Wolverine. So we’ve had a LOT of X-Men goodies during this production run. It’s likely stopping, but it’s hard to complain … unless you really don’t dig Magneto’s Heisenberg look.
