Bryan Singer spoke with James Cameron about time travel


It seems that since Anna Paquin and Ellen Page have agreed to reprise their roles as Rogue and Kitty Pryde we may still have a chance at a proper translation of the Days of Future Past story with time travel and everything. Hugh Jackman may still have a huge question mark on his face, but in all likelihood if they give the guy gets the call he’s bound to say yes. The damn X-franchise is his career anchor and his career could, and probably would, be a much lower profile one without Marvel’s band of mutants. That said, it’s a safe bet that Singer wants him, he’ll be there.


“It’s epic. We get to bring both casts together. We’ve cracked it in a way that makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel, string theory, multiverses and all that. You have to create your rules and stick with them. That’s what makes TERMINATOR and BACK TO THE FUTURE work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible. More than any of the movies I’ve made, it comes to me much more quickly than on other films. With Superman Returns I struggled a lot. I guess it’s either my history with the X-Men universe or I have some kind of knack for this particular story.”


They’ve thought out the time travel in the usual and expected ways, it’s just a little odd that he chose to speak to Cameron about the subject. I doubt they spoke specifically about X-men but it’s interesting that he randomly talks to Cameron, for hours at a time, about time travel and all the concepts that come with.


I like that they’ve already solidified that Wolverine was alive and well in the First Class film, so I do expect to see the return of Jackman to be announced at some point in the future. I also wouldn’t be surprised if they bring back Kelsey Grammer as beast, James Marsden as Cyclops, and more. The only person I don’t expect? Halle Berry. Her career is way too big for a measly Marvel film…. (that’s sarcasm).

  1. What about Prof. X? He dies in X3 and he’s confirmed as coming back in both McAvoy’s and Stewarts iterations… I wonder if this is where the whole ‘string theory’ and ‘parallel universes’ come into play. I hope they go for Apoalypse as a villain here in some way shape or form…

    1. KevinC1 I’m with you on this. I’m hoping that somehow someway that God is reading this, and Bryan Singer, and that this story marries the Days of Future Past story-line with the Age of Apocalypse which would be…. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      A guy can dream can’t he?

      1. Anthony_TMB KevinC1 I say why not go for the gusto? The Avengers introduced a guy like Thanos, then fans would be ready for Apocalypse… Start the film in Ancient Egypt and introduce him and then just start time jumping all over the place and just go nuts….
