‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Takes Place In The 1970s

X-Men: Days of Future Past” brings two different generations of “X-Men” casts together for the first time — and now, based on a new report, we know when they’re gathering, too.

The eagle-eyed folks at ComicBookMovie.com unearthed a casting call for Bryan Singer’s next “X-Men” film that puts the movie’s starting point at 1973. That’s more than a decade after the events of “First Class,” completely skipping over Matthew Vaughn’s original plan to begin the “First Class” sequel with Magneto assassinating John F. Kennedy.

Elsewhere, Brett White of CBR’s In Your Face Jam wrote an excellent column this week about what exactly the time-travel component of “Days of Future Past” will do for the “X-Men” film franchise. It’s his theory that Singer’s latest will undo the events of “X-Men: The Last Stand,” leaving room for both Singer’s original “X-Men” continuity as well as the “First Class” series to continue without conflict.
