By:  Kristy Puchko With a plotline poised to have the worlds of the X-Men trilogy and the ’60s-set X-Men: First Class collide, X-Men: Days of Future Past plans to incorporate cast members from both chronologies.

Then came the forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which served as a sloppy prequel. Next came the more carefully constructed prequel X-Men: First Class, which gave background to the trilogy’s key adversaries, and origins to some of its other memorable … Continue reading Sentinels Will Appear In Next X-Men Movie, Says Mark Millar

X-Men: First Class Sequel Confirmed As Days Of Future Past

By: Eric Eisenberg If you’re going to make a comic book movie, why not use material from the greatest source material available?
