Lucas Till Back For X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Bryan Singer posts Havok pic on Twitter

Even with Comic-Con about to descend, the ideal arena, you'd think, at which to make further announcements about X-Men: Days Of Future Past, sneaky ol’ Bryan Singer just can’t stay away from Twitter. His latest Twitpic from the movie features the revelation than Lucas Till is back as Alex Summers, AKA Havok.

Yes, it would appear that almost anyone who's even been close to the X-Men franchise is back for this one, barring the likes of Rose Byrne and January Jones (although who knows – the film is still shooting!)

It’s not clear what Havok dressed in an army uniform and surrounded by what appear to be other mutants signifies, but that quote from JFK certainly does seem to signify he’s part of a conflict in the First Class era (albeit with the younger mutants moved forward a few years). Oh, and some other little details have leaked pre-Con, but only take a look if you're not worried about potential spoilers. 

Till is part of a cast that includes Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Booboo Stewart. It will see the X-Men fighting to stop a dark future where mutants are murdered or rounded up into concentration camps.

More info about the film will no doubt become clear when the panel happens on Saturday at Comic-Con. And X-Men: Days Of Future Past arrives on our screens on July 18 next year.

RE: What a mess!
I agree X2 was one of the best superhero films around, don't forget the original x-men films (one and Two) are over 10years old, which doesn't sound old, but in current terms they could have rebooted this franchise twice. I for one am happy they are trying to tie to two series together and yeah there was a few continuity errors but nothing time travel story line can't fix. PS I am one of the few people who actually really enjoyed First class and shocking/guiltily enjoyed The Last Stand (apart More

What a mess!
Due to the fact that First Class did not fit the continuity of the other films, how they can merge these effectively is a mystery. Coupled with the naffness of the first two films, the fact that they KILLED OFF CYCLOPS??? and what you have is a director who just can't inject any warmth or emotion into any of his characters and subsequently his films are flat and empty. The best thing they can do is bring back Cyclops by the end of the film and get a better director next time who genuinely unders More
