‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Will Be Set In The ’70s, Over A Decade After ‘First Class’

A pretty dramatic time jump is in store for viewers of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” To be released next year, the film is set an entire decade after the previous two “X-Men” movies, Digital Spy reported.

“It takes place about ten years, give or take, after ‘X-Men 3,’ and in the past it takes place about ten years after ‘First Class,’” director Bryan Singer told Empire magazine. Singer is returning to direct the next installment in the film series following Brett Ratner’s turn in the chair for “X-Men: The Last Stand.”

Many members of the movie’s massive cast made appearances at the recent Comic-Con International: San Diego. Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage and Ellen Page were just a few who attended the event.

The film will have more of an international flavor than previous movies in the series, Singer told the Hollywood Reporter. “It takes place all over the world, including in Russia, China and Japan,” he said.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters next May 23.
