Days of Future past is a sequel to X-Men: First Class, because it involves time travel elements which can be linked to the story of characters from the previous films of Singer, who will also be included in the story. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were previously confirmed by Singer to reprise their roles as Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto. While ‘First Class’ stars James McAvoy (young Xavier), Michael Fassbender (young Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) will also be back for more mutant action.

Singer is looking to get other cast members, there are rumours circulating on the web saying that James Marsden is talks to return as Cyclops. Fans would rejoice if all the time travel elements fix the disastrous events of Brett Ratner‘s X-Men. There are also rumours that Famke Janssen would return as Jean Grey. Hope they bring back Taylor Kitsch to reprise his role as Gambit.

Jackman, who had a memorable cameo in “X-Men: First Class,” recently wrapped production of director James Mangold‘s “The Wolverine.” The extent of his role in “Days of Future Past” hasn’t been revealed, but it’s been suggested the three original-trilogy actors will spend limited time on screen, most likely in scenes depicting the dystopian alternate future. Maybe we’ll get to see the white haired Wolverine.

Days of Future Past would mark the seventh film for Jackman as Wolverine, counting 2013′s The Wolverine, out July 26 in the United States. Days of Future Past, a sequel to 2011′s X-Men: First Class and based on the classic comic book storyline that ran through Uncanny X-Men #141 and #142, is scheduled for release on July 18, 2014.

The sequel is based on 1981′s Uncanny X-Men which came from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin. The story is set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been thrown in concentration camps, Sentinels are patrolling America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted down and killed. The present day X-Men are forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring.
