Comic book movies and cinematic universe have become commonplace, but in many ways it all began with Bryan Singer's X-Men franchise. The beloved mutants lead a franchise before the likes of Tony Stark hit theaters, and its a property that is still going strong now. While the fandom is eager for more information about X-Men: Dark Phoenix, a new photo has just surfaced from the set of Days of Future Past. Singer returned to to helm that sequel, which united both casts for a time traveling epic. Singer has just released a behind the scenes image, featuring the cast of X-Men legends on set. Check it out.
Bryan Singer's recent photo features the set of the future timeline of X-Men: Days of Future Past. We learn than things have only gotten worse since the events of The Last Stand, with mutants all but non-existent in a dystopian world ruled by advanced Sentinels. In one last attempt to save their species, villains and heroes unite in a final battle, while Logan is sent through time to stop Mystique from killing her first victim. It's an epic concept, allowing for all of the X-Men to appear in one film, with both version of Charles Xavier even sharing the screen for a telepathic conversation across time.
In the above photo, we see X-Men royalty in costume, including Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, and Ellen Page. They're also joined by the likes of mutants Colossus, Bishop, and Blink. Those large ensemble scenes made for some of the most exciting aspects of X-Men: Days of Future Past, especially once they're found out and forced to one by one sacrifice themselves at the hands of the shape shifting Sentinels.
