Just When Is ‘Days of Future Past’?

dofpcoverWhile we all know that the next X-Men movie is adapting the time-traveling “Days of Future Past” storyline from the comics, it was never clear how the convoluted and somewhat contradictory timelines of the X-Men’s movie universe would be molded to fit together for the latest installment, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Well, now director Bryan Singer has told us how he’s going to do it. By setting it in two different futures — one of which is the past for some characters. Singer says:

“It takes place about 10 years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about 10 years after First Class… It’s its own story, inspired by ‘Days of Future Past.’ [Kitty Pryde is] the prime facilitator — it’s her power that enables [Wolverine to be sent into the past]. But it’s Wolverine who has the strength and the stamina to be able to go back on this journey. Charles [Prof. X] is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik [Magneto] has been gathering his power. They’re in a radically different place.”

Yeah, I’m still not crystal-clear on how it’s all going to fit together — but it is implied that that’s part of the movie’s plot. And I’m not sure how Kitty sends Wolvie into the past unless she’s getting some new powers.
