X-Men: First Class

The sequel to Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class has a confirmed title, which provides plenty of clues about its story...

Hot on the heels of Thor: The Dark World's casting news (if indeed news has heels), along comes some exciting revelations about the sequel X-Men: First Class. It was previously rumoured that the follow-up to that 2011 hit would be called X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and that's now been confirmed by none other than the series' producer, Bryan Singer.

The title is taken from a two-part story of the same name, which originally ran in Uncanny X-Men issues 141 and 142. The story established an alternate timeline, in which the X-Men fought Mystique and her Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in the present, while the future universe is dominated by Sentinels. 

In an interview with IGN, in which he confirmed the film's title, Singer also revealed his intention to "broaden out" the X-Men universe, just as Marvel have done with The Avengers, and perhaps provide links to the earlier X-Men trilogy.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is due for release in 2014. You can see the full interview over at IGN.
