Fans of the X-Men Franchise have been rejoicing in updates lately. Just last week, it was announced that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart would appear as the older Magneto and Professor X in Bryan Singer's follow up to last year's "X-Men: First Class". The comic book storyline of the new film "Days of Future Past" tells the tale of a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An older Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into the younger, present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.
Bryan Singer turned to Twitter to post the below picture with the caption, "Settling down for my 14 hour flight with #Xmen Days of Future Past. Let's hope I don't leave it in the plane."
The cover page of the script displays a quote from Charles Darwin's Origin of the Species, which reads:
"As new species are formed through natural evolution, others will become rarer and rare, and finally extinct. The forms which stand in closest competition with those undergoing modification and improvement will naturally suffer most."
Penned by Jane Goldman, Simon Kinberg and Mattthew Vaughn, Bryan Singer leads the returning cast of key players including James McAvoy (Younger Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven), Michael Fassbender (Younger Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast).
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens in AMC Theatres on July 18th 2014.
