X-Men: Days Of Future Past Spoiler Special Podcast With Screenwriter Simon Kinberg

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Spoiler Podcast Special - Simon Kinberg

With its fragmented timelines and complicated sci-fi-ery, X-Men: Days Of Future Past feels like the movie that Empire Podcast spoiler specials were made for. Prepare yourself for a happy couple of hours where your brain can come to terms with all the mutant mind-bending that occurred at your local multiplex.

Helping everyone untangle their noodles this time around is X-producer (and X-writer) Simon Kinberg, supplemented by an additional email Q&A and at least an hour's worth of what-the-hell-happened waffle from the Empire Podcast team. Look forward to a detailed discussion of the credit sting, and what it means for the rest of the X-Men franchise.

P.S. You can check out our podcast photo gallery here and subscribe to the Empire Podcast via our iTunes page or this handy RSS feed. You can subscribe to the magazine for just £18 here if you like it in paper form, or here if you prefer things digitally.

RE: Re. Xaviers Body
I think it's bollocks as well. I only mentioned it as they were tying themselves in knots in the podcast trying to explain how Professor X looked the same in the future. More

RE: Re. Xaviers Body
Thanks, I know where that info comes from. I've heard it. I just think a suggestion on a decade-old commentary is bollocks as canon. I mean, by all means, believe what you like if it works for you. It's not like DOFP bothers to provide any answers, so we've all got to go with what works for us. Just doesn't work for me. More

Re. Xaviers Body
Since time has been rewritten Xavier wasn't killed by Jean Grey I doubt we'll ever find out why Xavier couldn't walk in the future. Check out the commentary tracks on X3 for the full info. More

RE: Xaviers body.
Why can he still not walk if he's got a brand new body from his convenient twin? (Also, I think it's very unlikely that Patrick Stewart showed up to film that scene at the end of X3). More

Xaviers body.
At the end of Last Stand post credit, Professor X transferred his mind into a body which was in fact his twin brother born without a consciousness. if you look closely you can see the body is Patrick Stewart. More
