Director Bryan Singer has spent the last few weeks Tweeting pictures of his cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but now he has gotten serious. The prove the film is well into production, Singer has Tweeted two photos from the set of the film, both prove the films 70’s setting, and both serious and slightly political.
The first image shows a meeting in the Oval office, and it just might be the meeting where Sentinels care granted the rights to hunt Mutants. It came with the message from Singer, which said “Pivotal meeting”, and looking closely at the man in sat at the desk, my guess is that is President Nixon.
The second image see’s what looks like a Vietnamese setting, or at the very least supporters of Vietnam and South Vietnam, The message which came with the second picture was simply “Good morning Vietnam!!”. No other description into what is going on was given.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is expected to arrive in cinemas 18th July 2014.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is being written by Jane Goldman, Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn and will see the newly formed titular team working to prevent an alternate future where mutants are hunted by giant machines called The Sentinels.
It follows the 1980s’ comic storyline written by Chris Claremont that alternates between a present day battle against the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline where an assassination of a government official has led to Sentinels roaming the land and mutants held prisoner in internment camps.
