Tensions Rise in New Set Photo From X-Men: Days of Future Past

Update: We have a few more details on the context of this shoot as VAT News reports that production has setup inside of the Montreal City Hall and transformed it into a French Embassy for the film. This explains the Vietnam War protestors. Special thanks to Bertrand Hebert for alerting us to this. The original article follows:

Yesterday saw the release of a new image from X-Men: Days of Future Past teasing a “pivotal meeting” with President Nixon. Today’s image appears to be somewhat related as director Bryan Singer revealed a gathering of Vietnam War protestors with the caption: “GOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!” How do you think it all ties together? And where do the X-Men fit in? Sound off below!

Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters and Boo Boo Stewart in the mutant ensemble, set for release July 18, 2014.

The film is based on the comic book storyline “Days of Future Past,” which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel’s mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
