The need to speculate over the plot and characters of X-Men: Days of Future Past seems to be drawing to a close, as director Bryan Singer seems happy to give away all the details fans aren’t even thinking to ask for. After revealing the old and new Professor X wheelchairs on set, Singer’s latest released image hints that we’ll be returning to some familiar places in the X-Men series.

Whether it will be in the 1970s or the 2010s we can’t yet know, but Singer has also teased that this year’s Comic-Con will be showing off plenty from the film’s production.

Check out the tweet below:

And here’s the image that accompanied the tweet. See if it rings any bells:

The unfinished hallways should be immediately familiar to fans as the hallway deep under Charles Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters. More specifically, the hallway leading directly to Cerebro, the device allowing Professor X to sense and communicate with the world’s mutant population. While the set may still be in production, Singer seems to be hinting at some kind of showing at Comic-Con 2013. Given what’s already been announced and confirmed by the director, we’d expect something big this summer.

It would be hard to keep the role Peter Dinklage will be playing under wraps until then, and every past cast member has already been either confirmed or rumored to be in talks to reprise their role. That leaves the strands binding X-Men: First Class, the original X-Men trilogy, and the upcoming The Wolverine (2013) as the largest mystery, along with the role that the Sentinels will be playing in it all.

The underground hallway in the modern X-Men base of operations.

Fox could require new sets for the X-Men base be constructed from scratch, as shown in the tweeted image but it’s not much of a leap to think that what is actually under construction is a 1970s version of the same space – proving that Professor X and his team have put the eleven years since First Class to good use, and setting the stage for some truly deja-vu-inducing time-jumping if the action gets out of hand.

Could the 1970s version be something right out of Logan’s Run or 2001: A Space Odyssey? We can only imagine what awaits, at least until Comic-Con comes around. Who knows: James McAvoy might even be bald by then.

Bryan Singer will direct X-Men: Days of Future Past with returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, and Shawn Ashmore.

The Wolverine releases July 26, 2013 and X-Men: Days of Future Past shoots from April to October for a July 18, 2014 release date.

  1. Nice image comparison.

  2. I think it would get a nice reaction if mccavoy shows up bald. I reallu doubt it tho

    • Well he did shave his head for first class when he learned he got the part ( little fun fact )

  3. If I can jump into the speculation game:

    Is it too much to hope that with the expanding X-Men and Avengers franchises, that we may be building to some sort of House of M storyline? With all of the X-Men back stories coming to film and the expansion of the Avengers universe, it may not be too crazy to think about it happening in the near future.

    Plus the Whedon v. Singer fight for control of that movie would be awesome!!!

  4. X-Men DOFP & ASM 2 are going to be crazy!!!!

    • I think they will be crazy in a great way man

    • Isn’t Chamber a member of Excalibur or Generation X?

      • I don’t think they would add beak in since he was killed off in xmen origins: wolverine. He was played by Dominic Monaghan in that film

        • He played bolt not beak

    • What about Cyclops? Did I hear someone say Cyclops? We need to see Cyclops! You heard me, I said *C*Y*C*L*O*P*S*!!!! We need Cy-Cy-Cy-Cy-clopsidiclops! Get the picture?–If you want us to see the picture!

      I also would not mind seeing an adult Havok, Banshee, Colossus, and Nightcrawler. maybe Iceman, too. But we have had enough Magneto and especially Wolverine to last a life-time, so quit over-playing them. And Beast is not that special, either!

      And we gotta see Sentinels.

  5. Can’t wait for tis massive movie!

  6. Same old same old ! Seems singer hasn’t learned a bit ! :(

    • I’d say he’s learned plenty myself. X-Men was awesome, and X2 even more so. It seems likely that this movie will be even better.

      • Yes,they were both good movies,but there was still a lot what could have been improved ! Singer feels more like an uninspired TV Show Director to me ! The Movie sets and his action sequences lack the epicness !

        Anyway,hope you are right !

        • Well singer wanted to do more with his x films, he wanted to add beast and the danger room, storm in africa in x1 and in x2 he wanted to add sentinels but fox said no, and not to mention the mega p#ick rothman who was behind everything at fox at the time (he was responsible for x3 D:)

    • And you can tell that by a picture of an unfinished setpiece?

  7. “LOGAN’S RUN” get it??? LOGAN????

    • Logan’s Runs? I told him to stay out of the Ex-Lax box…!

      • Someone got it!

  8. Is that the Hype Machine in Singer’s basement ?

    • I think him and Mark Webb sare the same one between themselves.

  9. Gambit. That’s all I care about at the moment. We need a proper gambit. One where gambit is an x man.

    • Maybe an appearence by Polaris? And Kitty Pryde, of course. And Storm.

  10. The entire franchise needs a serious do-over. MARVEL studios has already shown & proven what it takes to make a true great superhero franchise with all their releases so far. Everyone needs to take notes & follow suit or we’ll just have to put up with mediocre comic franchises for the forseeable future.

    • I am really tired of Marvel studios fanboys, Marvel movies are not that great, Iron Man 2 was terrible.

      • I am really tired of people who write baseless rants that serve no purpose just so they can show their high level of ignorance towards something they know nothing about.

        • It was you both times lol, you really don’t like Fox.

  11. The mansion is remembered when Wolverine Cyclops Storm were walking there to Cerebro in X-men 2000 and in X-men 3 Dark Phoenix was destroyed one of the mansion door exactly in medical room.
    in comic book and in X-men cartoon Emma Frost always appears in mansion especially to use Cerebro and meet with Jean. this movie should give Emma Frost. my best choice for Emma Frost is Charlize Theron. Jean Grey really will have to rise as White Phoenix of the Crown just see in ” Phoenix Endsong ” storyline, she also should make Cyclops reincarnate again, Cyclops will be falling in love with Emma Frost, Storm will be a leader she will be encountering with Bishop a mutant who can travel time and Gambit.
    it’s Based on Age of Apocalypse story, so Apocalypse, Mister Sinister, olocaust, Exodus and Archangel should be appeared in this big screen movie and Magneto should bring one of his child she is wanda maximoff / scarlet witch and Avalanche is in to brotherhood as newer character, Havok, Colossus, Lady Deathstrike, Mystique, Sabretooth, Pyro, Juggernaut, Deadpool Blob even Selene and Sebastian Shaw they should be there to defeat apocalypse, because apocalypse is too strong.

  12. Bring in Chris Claremont and John Byrne as consultants! Please…

  14. Ive always loved the Manssion hallway. Would like to see a less modern version on the 70′s, would be a nice twist, and its great to see how all the things evolve since the 60′s until the present time.

  15. Why do I see no talk of the Rachel Summers character being in this movie ? AGH ! :(

    Seriously, I do hope she ends up making her way into the movie-verse. <3

  16. I don’t really care who plays what character or where its held and who goes back in time or who gets killed, etc.

    With time travel and sentinels, this movie should rock…

    (I just hope it’s not Wolverine part 2 — he’s not the only member of the X-men Singer…)

  17. Not really to excited about Singer directing this movie, I think X-Men 1 and 2 was great at that time since it was the first time other comic book heroes are being introduced in the movie scene. but when I look back now the only thing that stands out to me is the nightcrawler scene in the whitehouse i like how it showed me how teleportation on screen can be so awesome, unlike the other mutants they showed that just stood there and didnt do anything i really didnt like that about Singers xmen movies.

    Does anybody here remember Wizard magazine or still read it? I remember when i was a kid reading an article where they did a what if there was an X-men movie and i remember they did actually pick Patrick stewart as Professor X and i think Arnold was colossus i dont really remember who the other actors they chose, but when I saw that I remember imagining an X-men movie and how awesome it would be to see them use their powers.

    I just wanted to say I think my imagination or how I imagined the X-men movie was way better than what Singer gave us i was a bit let down like I wanted more out of it but it was just not enough.

    • It’s all in the budget, tbh rango had a larger budget than x1 and x2 :/

  18. Alright, Singer, you listening? You do this one thing, ONE THING, and I’ll be down for whatever else you want to do. You stick Hugh Jackman into a brown and yellow sleeveless spandex suit and cowl. You KNOW he’d be up for it.

  19. I can’t wait until X-men 3 is erased :D :D :D
