Bryan Singer Tweets New X-Men Plot Tease
'Today we face the gravest threat in our history'

Bryan Singer has taken to his twitter account to show us a little more X-leg. This time the X-Men: Days Of Future Past director, no stranger to using the drip-drip of social media to stoke the flames of fanboy anticipation, has dropped a plottier-than-normal on-set snap onto the web. Somewhere in Vancouver, Singer will be sparking up a metaphorical stogey and watching the speculation kick off afresh.

 

So what does it mean? Well, the attack in Paris, not seen in the comic book, is likely another set-up job by Magneto and his minions that will push the mutants closer to outlaw status. Tthe Presidential set behind the glimpsed communique, replete with green screen, looks ripe for a serious trashbagging by the Master of Magnetism.

Days Of Future Past finds the X-team in real trouble in a dark alternate future where mutants are hunted down, put in internment camps or killed by the robotic sentinels pioneered by Trask Industries. To stop this happening will require the efforts not only of the present-day team (including Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin and Daniel Cudmore), but also the  '70s-era X-team as well (with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult all back).

Singer, of course, has already tweeted a Trask Industries tease. There have also been Patrick Stewart titbits, snaps of President Nixon in the Oval Office, Mystique in full mystiquery and Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde, Quicksilver news breaks and more. We've even had McAvoy waxing lyrical about Fassbender and golf buggies...



X-Men: Days Of Future Past
is out on July 17, 2014. At this rate, we should have seen a good 60% of it in obscure on-set snaps by then.
