Bryan Singer has been tweeting away with the new release of a set photo for X-Men: Days of Future Past. This one shows the mailbox for the Maximoff family, who comic book fans will recognise as Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters (American Horror Story). For those that don’t know the character, Quicksilver has the power of super-speed.
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.
The cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past, is looking something like this: Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Booboo Stewart.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is expected to arrive in cinemas 18th July 2014.
