New Set Pic From X-Men: Days of Future Past

Director Bryan Singer is having a lot of fun with us. Ever since he began working on the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, he’s been tweeting regular updates about the cast, the crew, and the set. Today’s image shows one of the film’s many sets in the midst of being built and it looks very familiar. Remember where Cerebro was located in the previous X-Men films? Check out the image below.

Singer captioned his tweet with “How many days until Comic Con?” confirming that the film will be present for this year’s Comic-Con International. We can only hope that some footage of the film will be ready in time for it, and for the record: it’s only 147 more days until the San Diego Comic-Con.

Set for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s comic book storyline that ran in “Uncanny X-Men” #141 and 142 back in 1981. “Days of Future Past” 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.

The film’s cast includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.
