X-Men: First Class

Bryan Singer discusses Halle Berry and CG characters, in his latest update on X-Men: Days Of Future Past...

Bryan Singer is set to start production on X-Men: First Class follow-up X-Men: Days Of Future Past in the next month or two, once he's done promotional duties for his incoming film, Jack The Giant Slayer. And as he embarks on the press tour for the latter, inevitably there's been no shortage of X-Men questions.

Chatting to MTV then, Singer has revealed that he's considering using a fully-CG character in his new X-Men movie, having tried it for the first time with Jack The Giant Slayer. "I definitely want to use the technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in X-Men. I don't want to say how yet, but I'm definitely using some of this technology on X-Men, which I never used in any of the other X-Men films".

Singer has re-recruited many faces from his original X-Men films for the cast of Days Of Future Past, but thus far, Halle Berry, who played Storm, is missing from the line up. Will she be back? "I don't know yet", Singer said, "And it's not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it'll make sense. But I love working with here".

Doesn't sound too hopeful that Storm will be back, but if anything changes there, we'll let you know. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is set for release in July 2014.

the first two x men movies were the best in my opinion so i could not be more excited for this one! (there's also a typo in the article, but i didn't want the first comment to just be pointing out flaws)

This man should still be apologizing for Superman Returns.

I never felt Singer really knew what to do with storm in the first two films, she seemed to be the character that he found hardest to fit properly into his story. I don't think she'll be missed for that reason

Sound like CG Sentinels to me alá Transformers..

1- It was 7 years ago. Maybe it's time to move on.
2- Deeply flawed, not what most people expected, lacking action, all that is true. But SR was far from being a terrible movie and certainly doesn't deserve all the hate it's getting.


Thats exactly what I thought first.

It deserves all the hatred it gets. And more.

Any further development on that argument? Why does it deserve all the hatred? I agree that it wasn't spectacular and the whole 'Supermans child' stroyline was incredibly weak (and every time he was on screen I had the Kevin Smith bit running through my mind) but I still don't think it was as bad as Superman III or IV

Halle Berry must be in there don't hesitate Bryan !!!!! Including Famke janssen as White phoenix of the crown + Charlize Theron as Emma Frost Apocalypse and Sentinel must be in there as strong foe

Is better then X3 - bloody Ratner.

CGI Sentinels...looking as ropey as the CGI Giants in JTGS....great...can't wait.

Just rewatched anaconda n some months ago Jurassic park, n I really wish more movies would mix animatronic n cgi

Good points: 1. Brandon Routh. Even though he's doing a weird Christopher Reeve impression. Poor guy copped a lot of flack for it.
2. Kevin Spacey's Lex Luthor. Okay, so his plan was a rehash of the one from Superman: The Movie, but he's a credible threat, something Hackman was never fully believable at, even with his big kryptonite necklace.
Bad points: Everything else. Plot, dialogue, Bosworth Lois, surprisingly bad, (for the budget), CGI, all horrendous. All fresh in my mind as it wason TV on Sat night and it put the kids to sleep.

But carry on.

It cant even keep kids entertained, not very super

When people think of Superman, they tend to imagine he'll do more than solve every problem by holding things over his head...

Thank god. This was meant to me a new X-Men.

I think the reason for that is that Storm is very over-powered and needs an enemy on the same level as her, otherwise they get destroyed easily like Toad in the first one. If they do use Storm they could have her fight her way through several Sentinels in the same way that the Avengers had The Hulk and Thor doing the heavy work against Chitauri.

As I said, "not what most people expected, lacking action".

Look, I don't like the story, so I won't defend it. I thought most of it was stupid, and including the kid in the mix was a very bad idea.
But it was well written (a well-written bad story, that's surprising!) and the direction was solid. If you forget about everything and just watch, there are some beautiful (and iconic) shots.

Also, the respect shown towards the Donner movie(s) appealed to me on an emotional level. Returns got a lot of criticism about that, but it's not a flaw, it's just a matter on where you stand on the previous movies.

I get when people say they didn't like it. I even get when people say it's a bad movie, because there is a lot of bad stuff in it and some things will only appeal to a specific audience. But come on, if it is the worst movie someone has ever seen, that person is one lucky bast*rd!

And yet over 3 out of 4 critics loved Superman Returns according to Rotten Tomatoes. But random commenters opinions get the weight they deserve

Oh well if it's on 'Rotten Tomatoes'.....come back once you manage to for your own opinion.

Whilst still reeling from Ratners mess I hope they can piece it back together logically. I understood that Singer and Berry didnt get on so not sure if she will be in the First Class sequel unless that is now settled. But for X4 they need to pump up Rogue's part.....enough of the teeny-bopper Rogue.....she needs to step it up now
