Okay so now this seemed like something appropriate to blog about because it has to do with the future of the current X-Men films now under the supervision of Mark Millar. The original story comes from superherohype:
It seems Mark Millar is already hard at work as the creative consultant for Fox on their Marvel properties. He spoke with SFX magazine (via Total Film) about the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, and it sounds exciting.
So it sounds like those pesky Sentinels will finally be making their way to the big screen in more than just the Danger Room.
The film is currently slated to begin production in January of 2013 with a target release date of July 18, 2014.
In my opinion this sounds pretty interesting purely because it sounds like Millar is already getting things started over at Fox and it also seems like they have a clear direction that they’re going to head in. From the sound of things it sounds like X-Men is going down the Terminator route of things with the whole time travel element and talk of robots. Obviously when one hears talk of robots, fans will immediately think of the Sentinels and to be honest it’s about time they had a proper film appearance. The Sentinels would makes for some great film material and it would give the mutants something much more interesting to fight than just continuously beating each other up in each film. Well here’s hoping for more comic book oriented connections for the next X-Men film in the news to come out in the future.
