The first two films of the X-Men: First Class trilogy centered on the early days of Professor X and Magneto’s relationship. The bond between the two can be described as strange since they seem like they are friends but their opposing views put them on opposite corners of the war between humans and mutants. But there is one relationship that the prequels seem to have forgotten about: the relationship between Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicolas Hoult).
Now, Days Of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg says X-Men: Apocalypse will focus on that relationship once more, and adds that Apocalypse will close out the First Class trilogy. Hit the jump to learn more.
X-Men: Days of Future Past may not have been the massive box office hit that Fox was hoping to have, a near 60% drop in box office revenue in its second week hurt the film’s numbers, but the hugely positive response was enough to give studio heads the confidence to move forward with its sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.
Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg have been hard at work trying to crack the script, and it looks like they have finally done it, as it has been confirmed that filming will begin next year in Canada.
If you were looking forward to seeing True Blood star Anna Paquin reprise her role as Rogue in the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, there’s a bit of bad news.
As it turns out, Paquin only shot one scene for the movie—a rescue sequence featuring Rogue, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), and best buddies Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart). In the end, director Bryan Singer simply had too much good content (never a bad thing), and had to sacrifice the scene.
We saw the trailer tease recently, and now the first full trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past has made its way online.
The movie sees Bryan Singer return to the director’s chair for the first time since 2003’s X2: X-Men United, and sees his world and characters collide with the world and characters of Matthew Vaughn’s 20011 prequel, X-Men: First Class.

Remember when that firstX-Men: First Class picture came out, and everyone was stunned by how atrocious it was? Fortunately the movie was much, much better than that picture.
Thankfully for us, early marketing for the sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, is going much better. The movie already has people excited due to its megafusion of the casts of First Class, Bryan Singer‘s (who returns to the franchise to direct again) first two X-Men movies, and new actors like Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
Two new posters for the movie have been released, and they’re pretty incredible. The posters feature Professor X and Magneto, both young and old, and all four actors who portray them, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy, in one brilliant design.
