5If you are going to add characters that have no business in the movie..at least have AWESOME ones!

With Singer’s track record on the “X-Men” franchise, he likes to add characters to “enhance the story”.  If you are going to do that, do it with DECENT characters.  Now the rumor is that the cast from the first 3 films is mishmashed with the cast from “X-Men: First Class”, which is an interesting concept, and can fit with the comic storyline (more so than any of the other films).  If you are going to deal with time travel and alternate timelines and such, you have some really good characters you can “enhance the story” with.  Two such examples of this would be Bishop and Cable, who were in the Days of Future Past story in “X-Men: The Animated Series”.  You also have Forge, Rachel Summers and others that can fit into the story if you need to add more characters.  So if you don’t stick with the source material, at least you service the fans and they won’t try to burn Singer at the stake.

“Yeah…we are Badasses!”

    My expectations for a good film took a nose dive with the Bryan Singer news, the man who brought us the gay superman. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised, I hope so.
    (Hopefully they kill Cyclops again) man and I thought I disliked the guy.

      I agree 100%, as a director Singer sucks up to high heaven, Superman Returned was a total piece of crap, aimless directing, childish script, worthless casting, and acting that reminded me of that little kid in Star Wars I.
      When I heard they were going to do Days of Future Past I was very excited, outstanding story, with a mingle of both current and past X-Men cast it would have been outstanding.
      And then Singer came bad and the ballon burst. All hopes and dreams flew away like dust particles in the breeze. The comic book story line will be forgotten, the script will will be horrible, and even if they can pull together all the cast members from all of the X-Men movies – Singer will still find a way to screw it up, he aways does.

      I am not a fan of Cyclops anyway, but James Marsden was TERRIBLE in the films…

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Hahaha I agree, the way he portrayed Cyclops put me off the character forever. I don’t even like him in the comics anymore.

  • Ronaldynoszerregar

    I love the entire this story for X men Days of Future Past ! Bryan Singer is awesome !

    First I’d love to say for Main Villain to be added

    En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse
    Nathaniel Essex / Mister Sinister ( Apocalypse’s Partnerships )
    William Rolfson / Holocaust ( Apocalypse’s Son )
    Bennet du Paris / Exodus
    Warren Worthington 3 / Archangel ( he’s becoming a villain joining with Apocalypse and Mister Sinister )
    Bastion, Nimrod, and Giant Sentinel / Master Mold / Wild Sentinel (They are coming with the same time)

    I see in internet it has been waiting very long time X men fans and Non X men Fans hoping with ” Age of Apocalpse” storyline! good involving Days of Future Past including Age of Apocalypse!

    Second I’d want to see Famke Janssen as White Phoenix of the Crown
    after she’s reprising again she wears a white one and bring Cyclops is alive again with Phoenix Force power.
    her force looks super massive Dark Phoenix is resurrected in this future time line and becomes the fully realized White Phoenix of the Crown, using the abilities of the Phoenix Force to defeat Sublime and eliminate the dystopic future by reaching back in time it’s more a matter of Jean Grey as a White Phoenix being much more aware of the nature and power of the Phoenix and not being trapped to a physical body, and thus, being able to see more of how the universe should work and being able to change it on a more fundamental level. So in that, a White Phoenix is more powerful than a Dark Phoenix just like in X men 3 the Last Stand. There should be an super explosion where Jean and Scott were buried, in the middle of a night, and then they should both appear coming out of the rubble! Jean’s powers should be under her control as White phoenix of the Crown.
    and with adventure among Cyclops and White Phoenix they both encounter a woman mutant with has diamond hard skin ability, she also has a very strong telepathic and she has many abilities such as hypnotic, diamond harmonic, bedlam crush, shield, and psychic wave. the the most familiar with the call the White Queen ( Emma Frost ) the best choice for Emma Frost is Charlize Theron! she’s look a very sexy woman and joining in this X men.

    Third Actually I’d love to see older X men cast members such as

    Halle Berry as Storm
    Anna Paquin as Rogue
    Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
    Ian Mckellen as Magneto
    Rebecca Romijn as Mystique

    returning mutant such as

    Havok
    Juggernaut
    Gambit
    Lady Deathstrike
    Nightcrawler
    Beast
    Sabretooth
    Toad
    Pyro

    and added other mutants

    Scarlet Witch
    Deadpool
    Avalanche
    Blob
    Selene Gallio / The Black Queen
    Bishop
    Cable

    Most people whole the world wanted to see X-men Film to have X-men Major Villain
    people whole the world have known X-men with the most famous Villain is Apocalypse with his partnership Mister Sinister and his Son Holocaust and a new Villain member Archangel from the X-men when Apocalypse abducted him
    In fact this is my big ambition too..
    I want Bryan Singer to work Age of Apocalypse in XDOFP.. Apocalypse want to get Slave from mankind and mutants and doing abducted many mutants.. Apocalypse want to destroy this earth and under rule of Sentinels.. Arnold Vosloo is very good to be Apocalypse, Jason Isaac is very good to be Mister Sinister,
    Ralph Fiennes as Holocaust..
    Famke Janssen who role as Dark Phoenix in this time she must do bigger role I agree completed with Ronaldynoszerregar, she becomes White Phoenix of The Crown, that stronger more than the Dark Phoenix.. I didn’t like with January Jones as Emma Frost but yea I know Charlize Theron is perfect being Emma Frost there..
    so i won’t talk much words that i completed agree about APOCALYPSE STORYLINE MUST IN IT X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

    Well.. Here we are the big X MEN FANS working together with MARVEL as well..

    5 Ways to Make X-Men: Days of Future Past … Awesome!

    of course. the fifth storyline is extraordinary it can be the longest an X MEN MOVIE IN 2014 X men Days of Future Past. but we like Age of Apocalypse Face Now Apocalypse

    Days of Future Past although we despite this story about Sentinels grace the screen Bastion and Nimrod must along there as well. Bastion as a leader for Master Mold / Giant Sentinel Bastion started life out as two separate beings: the Sentinel Master Mold, and Nimrod, a highly-advanced Sentinel from an alternate future. While posing as a human construction worker, Nimrod unearthed a module from Master Mold. As soon as Nimrod made physical contact with the module, Master Mold’s programming began to co-opt Nimrod’s. and Nimrod is a mutant-hunting Sentinel from an alternative future and was created by the Sentinels ruling that timeline. and probably Roderick “Rory” Campbell / Ahab will be there too.
    – Professor X was implied in X men 3 Last Stand after he was fighting with Dark Phoenix. When he wakes up, he finds that the mutants of his world are imprisoned by the Sentinels. He telepathically connects with the X-Men of the past to try to prevent that future from happening. By the end of the first season, the Sentinel-dominated future was averted. However, a future based on the Age of Apocalypse has appeared in its place.
    ( Famke Janssen ) Dark Phoenix is resurrected in this future time line and becomes the fully realized White Phoenix of the Crown, her power look super massive waves, more powerful than Dark Phoenix in X men 3 Last Stand using the abilities of the Phoenix Force to defeat Sublime and eliminate the dystopic future by reaching back in time it’s more a matter of Jean Grey as a White Phoenix being much more aware of the nature and power of the Phoenix and not being trapped to a physical body, and thus, being able to see more of how the universe should work and being able to change it on a more fundamental level. So in that, a White Phoenix is more powerful than a Dark Phoenix just like in X men 3 the Last Stand. There should be a very large explosion where Dark Phoenix and Scott were buried, in the midnight, and then they should both look coming out of the rubble! .she had a Life- Force Control The Phoenix Force can control and manipulate life and death itself. she also has a Psionic nexus or center of all psionic energy throughout the cosmos, the host attains nigh-infinitely powerful mental abilities, including telepathy, empathy,and telekinesis, and often seeks out hosts who have psionic abilities. When bonded with a host, the Phoenix Force vastly strengthens and amplifies all of their superhuman mutant powers and abilities to immeasurable and innumerable power levels.Now she wears a white one in X-Men Days of Future Past
    Charlize Theron would be OK as Emma Frost / The White Queen
    The Phoenix Force would return to Earth during where it resurrected Dark Phoenix from her grave ( in X men 3) . It is not long before she remembers what she has come for — Scott Summers (a.k.a. Cyclops). She needs to feed from the energy from his optic blasts, and confused by Jean’s emotions thinks she’s in love with Scott. She realizes Scott is in love with Emma Frost (former White Queen of the Hellfire Club and headmistress of the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning). Through a number of incidents, including Jean having Wolverine kill her a number of times, Jean trapping herself in a glacier, the Phoenix Force jumping into Emma Frost. Jean Grey managed to assert herself and gain control of the Phoenix Force, with emotional support of all the X-Men. Jean then declares that she and the Phoenix force are truly one entity now, have transcended into the White Phoenix of the Crown. Jean will have to say goodbye a second times for Scott Summers / Cyclops ( James Marsden ), she will be unknown with Phoenix’s telepot. in X men 2 United Jean said goodbye for the first times sacrifice herself to save the X-men in a Big Jet !
    – X-Men and Brotherhood must join forces against Apocalypse, who wants to kill all the humans, turn all the mutants into his slaves, and rule the entire world! X- Men and Brotherhood must work together to come up with a plan to kill Apocalypse and save the world once again! The government should support the X- Men and Brotherhood because Apocalypse is a threat to both humans and mutants! Apocalypse should come to life in one of the pyramids of Egypt.
    Juggernaut should be come back because in X men 3 he was unconscious Mystique, Magneto, and Rogue, should all regain their powers because in the movie it must be shown that the “cure”, made for the mutants, by humans, only shut down their powers for a certain amount of time but could not kill their powers permanently! Rogue should be much more powerful and be able to fly in this movie. And Rogue should be paired with Gambit this time and not Iceman because Rogue and Gambit are the original couple from the comics and animated series! It must be shown that Iceman and Rogue broke up longtime ago and are now just friend and members of X- Men team! Gambit should feel attracted to Rogue while they are all working together to stop Apocalypse, Mister Sinister! Kurt Wagner/ Nightcrawler should be included as a part of the movie! Kurt and Rogue should find out that Mystique is their mother! The shape-shifter is then revealed to be Mystique, who was working for Apocalypse, but Rogue lets her escape because Mystique reveals that she was Rogue’s adoptive mother years ago.
    Mystique should have something to do with bringing Apocalypse to life because she wants revenge from Magneto for leaving her there in the previous part!
    Upon entering Apocalypse’s tomb, Mystique should press a stone button that would bring Apocalypse to life but turns her into stone! Professor Xavier must find a way bring her back to life later then she should also help others in their plan to kill Apocalypse! Magneto should not be the villain this time! As a matter of fact, Magneto should realize that he should have been with Professor Xavier all along! There should also be some positive and funny interaction between them since they are childhood friends and now also allies! ( such as in X-Men First Class Movie )
    Magneto also encounters with his daughter she is Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch. Angelina Jolie is the best way for Scarlet Witch in DOFP !! Senator Kelly will have to be in DOFP too. and Avalanche, Blob, Sabretooth, Pyro, and probably Toad will have to be there too.
    Ian Somerhalder is the best perfect for an older Alex Summers / Havok, after Lucas Till as young Alex Summers / Havok in FC, probably Lucas Till will be involving in DOFP.
    Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe / Storm must along with Bishop in DOFP ! we saw in X men 3 Last Stand her power was weak and her action wasn’t like extreme action, we hope in DOFP her power is powerful with long hair and wearing a sexy costume such as comic book even she’s a teacher !
    There should be some interaction between Dark Phoenix and Storm to show their friendship because in the comics and in the animated show they are very best friends but in the movies they barely talk to one another! Halle Berry promise it won’t stink for make another an X-men after a last Stand !! Selene / the Black Queen should be there because she’s the oldest a mutant with many host in past, present and future. for X men Days of Future Past in End Part Famke Janssen as White Phoenix of the Crown beat Apocalypse!

  • Juggernaut

    LAZZ82-I agree with all of your points. I’d love to see Forge and the rest of the XSE as well as Bishop and Cable show up. Nimrod as well as Ahab, Bastion and either Hope or Rachel Summers would be really cool too.
    Using elements of the DOFP storyline along with the AOA arc would be ideal. If not an amalgam of the two plotlines I really liked the idea of this next film having the X-Men try to stop the DOFP events and inadvertantly creating the AOA timeline in its place. A subsequent sequel could focus on Apocalypse and a Horsemen Line-up. Archangel is a must. Holocaust and Sinister are both pretty much a given and while I liked the thought of Exodus being the other horseman, my pick for the fourth member would either be Abyss, Gambit or Sabretooth.
    I’d love to have some of the inconsistancies of the previous films cleared up in this movie. The timelines and characters finally fixed.
    Overall it is a very ambitious endeavor that I sincerely hope pans out.

    Well seeing how this univerese is all it’s own, THIS version of “DOFP” will be even more than it’s comics counterpart than the 90’s series was. At this point between AOA, DOFP, AOX they have several alternate future stories that they can work with to make a story work for this universe. I’m intereseted to see how they pull this off, but Apocalypse or Mr. Sinister or both would be the best choice for villains. Nimrod as well but then we reall have to deal with sentinels too.

  • http://www.grifiti.com Tin Hoang

    The biggest way to do this X-Men correctly is as a trilogy. The story arc for this is huge. They just can’t do it justice in one movie.

    My vote for biggest and baddest combo. Apocalypse and the Four Horseman!

    And it would be a great time to introduce Cable, my favorite X team leader of them all. The bad guy in Avatar should play Cable.

    I’m also not a big fan of Singer. Why do you need to do revisionist version of the X-men. it’s not like the original wasn’t dramatic enough.

  • Jessicaswinton

    Honestly i’m not x men fans but i understand by all stories the x men i would rather to see villain bosses are Apocalypse + Mr Sinister + Holocaust + Exodus + Archangel in x men days of future past 2014. i enjoy to look them. with Universe the Rising of Apocalypse has been tuning by all of people for movie. I’m sure all people have known x men especially Apocalypse Mr Sinister Holocaust Exodus Archangel who very familiar super villain. when i was a child the x men for title Rising of Apocalypse was always watched. i would rather Bryan Singer to bring villain bosses are Apocalypse + Mr Sinister + Holocaust + Exodus + Archangel. and an another point James Marsden who play Cyclops has to be back along with Famke Janssen who play Dark Phoenix, when i think for this next x men times in this movie famke janssen who play as Dark Phoenix will be transforming into White Phoenix of the Crown with larger role,
    Halle Berry who play Storm has to be back along with Cable and Bishop. i totally agree if Angelina Jolie will play Scarlet Witch and Charlize Theron play White Queen ( she’s better than january jones even she’s will be there ) and i would rather Havok, Banshee, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Gambit, Iceman, Colossus, Magneto, Juggernaut, Sabretooth, Toad, Polaris and Professor X there, i think again Rebbeca Romijn who play Mystique has to be there but she’s not working by Brotherhood team again but she’s working for Apocalypse Mr Sinister with other brotherhood team like Avalanche, Blob, Pyro,..
    and Selene – The Black Queen for this time she’s not as Enemy but joining by the x men also Magneto Scarlet Witch Juggernaut Sabretooth. Bryan Singer has to understand about what people need to see for an x men movie now.

    Absolutely I really agree 5 ways is making Days of Future Past!

    -it just only one which my best perfect big title the APOCALYPSE !!!! battle sacrifice saving for this earth from apocalypse’s rule. apocalypse won’t be rising alone he’ll be come together with Sinister his partnership who really closer and his son Holocaust.. I really ambitious Face with APOCALYPSE MISTER SINISTER ARCHANGEL HOLOCAUST EXODUS !!!!

    -I have an idea what if Bastion, Nimrod, and Ahab get traveling time to encounter Apocalypse Sinister Holocaust being Villain United and they encounter Exodus too, Exodus is taking Angel from the X men and give to the Apocalypse.. Angel will turn to the Archangel. Sentinels become wilds. Lady Strike will come with Apocalypse and Mystique must use the guns just like in x men comic books. she left brotherhood and come with Sinister and Apocalypse. Mystique encounter Deadpool too..
    Deadpool in Days of Future Past become a neutral.. it’s really interesting X men War Members using with guns just like Mystique, Deadpool, Bishop and Cable.. are you interesting guy ?
    the bad gay just like Apocalypse and other his partners become bad gay united for DOFP 2014 movie.

    – is the Hellfire Club there ? just like Selene The Black Queen, Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost and are they joined with the X men and Brotherhood to destroy apocalypse ?
    I hope yes because all villain are being united to STOP APOCALYPSE !!!!

    – Professor X Scott and the Dark Phoenix they were dead in X 3 !!!! but as I know the Dark Phoenix isn’t going to die because she has a really powerful resurrection force she’s going to be more powerful may be the people are right she’s going to become White Phoenix of the Crown for her special storyline M’Kraan Crystal and Here Come Tomorrow. Professor X actually wasn’t dead he reincarnate and waking up to see Apocalypse and other bad gay is come with Giant Robots Sentinel who have got travel time.
    Scott should come with his reincarnate that White Phoenix is giving Cyclops’s life..
    after they all are alive they meet new mutants just like Emma Frost Scarlet Witch and Havok..
    may be this is potentially by the adventure Cyclops and White Phoenix..

    – I always look for Halle Berry I can’t see X men DOFP without her and YES JJ ( January Jones ) she was BAD ACTING in XFC bring her out from DOFP cast!!!! Charlize Theron would be fine !!!!
    between Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry they are very perfect, Storm should be alone she work together with Bishop and Cable even Rogue and Gambit should encounter for a first falling in love..

    – Bryan Singer is good enough for a director an DOFP I hope he can bring people’s favorite villains
    APOCALYPSE MISTER SINISTER ARCHANGEL HOLOCAUST EXODUS !!!!
