Mark Millar has jumped headfirst into his role as creative consultant for 20th Century Fox’s Marvel properties. Balancing his time between Kick-Ass 2 and lining up Fox’s Marvel films, he has been pretty busy lately. Fox’s first Marvel flick out of the gate is X-Men: Days of Future Past. Millar talked about it with SFX and confirmed some of the things we thought.
Speaking to the aforementioned SFX, Millar talked about how excited he was for the film by Matthew Vaughn, who also directed Millar’s Kick-Ass. Millar commented on what direction Vaughn is going for the sequel to First Class, describing it as X-Men meets The Terminator:
Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past. You’ve got robots, you’ve got time travel, you’ve got superheroes- it’s got everything in one film. Cost-wise it’s going to go up, and ambitious-wise it’s gone up. But Vaughn can handle it. Vaughn made Kick-Ass for $28 million.
He also said that it isn’t a spoiler for him to say that the film will go to an apocalyptic future setting. This confirms that the story will be a fair adaptation of the comic. With the time travel, there is a little credence to the rumors that the film will help straighten out some of the problems First Class made for the X-Men timeline. Patrick Stewart has been teasing that he will come back, and some of the other original X-Men have remained tight lipped on confirming or denying the subject. It sounds like we will be getting sentinels in all there destructive glory as well. While there isn’t confirmation Wolverine will appear, I would expect some sort of cameo due to his importance in the story. The film is set for release in July of 2014.
