Bryan Singer Reveals Professor Xavier’s ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Chairs
Even though the movie won’t arrive in theaters until July 17, 2014, Director Bryan Singer isn’t slowing down new routine of tweeting photos from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the upcoming (loose) cinematic adaption of the same-titled Uncanny X-Men #141-142 story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. Singer’s latest reveal is a photo of Charles Xavier’s two wheelchairs… from across time and space!While the actual picture of the two wheelchairs hanging out in an office of some kind might not be the most thrilling, it does seem to confirm that Singer is avoiding the use of Prof. Xavier’s glorious taxi-cab yellow Hoverchair popularized in the ’90s X-Men animated series. Depending on your inclinations, this is either positive or completely heartbreaking news.
Days of Future Past is set to take place in at least two different time-periods, echoing the original storyline it’s based on. Both James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart are returning to reprise their shared role as young and older Professor X, respectively. Other confirmed cast members include Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Ian McKellen as Magneto, and Peter Dinklage as an unknown antagonist (not Puck, it seems).
