I wonder if Hugh will be in it.
I read somewhere that this storyline would help tie up the slight continuity errors from First Class, although what exactly those errors were escapes me, still it would open the door for Jackman as an older Logan, plus perhaps cameos from Patrick Stewart and Ian Mackellen?
Very exciting. I can't wait to see what they do with this. And... no Magneto as the main villain please...
This opens the door for a wide area to play with as far as characters and concepts. Looking forward to this!
I think in this case the main antagonist would be Senator Robert Kelley, doesn't the DOFP story revolve around his mutant registration law being passed, leading to the mutant populations extermination by the sentinels, it also featured Cable who travels back from the war torn future to try and change history. I remember watching the cartoon as a kid and that storyline was played out, I always thought old grey haired Wolverine was cool!
Agreed, Magneto was in the Days Of Future Past series IIRC, it could turn out to be a 'one for all' kinda scenario, kill or be killed. It would be quite epic if future selves appear, it would have to be very well written and directed but could be fantastic if done right. Plus could we finally see proper sentinels on screen?
In the comics it was Scott and Jean's daughter that traveled back, but she didn't have the heart to tell her parents the truth and things eventually ended badly.
Never liked Cable or that black absorbing mutant or whatever he was - can never remember his name - but they just seem so over the top bad choices.
The more human story of the estranged future daughter is more appealing than some pumped up testosterone beserkers.
Both he and Cable were characters created at a time when the anti-hero was king. Cyborg parts, a million pouches, facial scars, and the type were all the rage then, but I agree it would have no place here and now anyway.
Chris Claremont wrote some of the best stories in comics, and DOFP was one of his best and probably the best X-Men story. It was very dark and rich and has a lot of potential to be a great film. I'm looking forward to this with interest.

I've very excited about this idea. I could see the cast of the X-men Trilogy having the large scale sentinel battle we all wanted (even if it's just a 5 min cameo type battle) and having it end badly. Then have Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) go back in time to the first class cast. This could open up the doors for having both sets of casts in different X flicks.
Most likely the older cast would be changed but I can hope right .
Okay this I could for sure get into as I love the storyline. I'd agree you'd need Hugh as Logan and I'm sure he'd be up for it as he's a wolverine fan.
How about "The Uncanny X-Men"
Wolverine HAS to be in this!
I'm curious since this would be a vastly different story than the other X men films.
I do have to say that I'm discouraged by Singer's desire to bring in more mutants and expand the universe. First Class had problems with worthless mutant side characters that distracted from how awesome the core group's interaction were. More is not better.
I still loved First Class, but I would absolutely point a finger at it for bad extra characters.
impossible anatomy is a requisite part of any good comic
Fastball Special! Wolverine getting tossed at a sentinel by Colosossus! I know we saw this a little in X3.
Dang it, Moo, weren't we subjected to that enough during the 80's-90's?!
Since the sentinals will appear Magneto will have to be a big part of taking them down.
This would be good, they could actually have it ret-con out that X-Men 3 never happened...
