There are many, many, many reasons to be excited for “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and fortunately one of them is that the flick has a very talkative consultant. Mark Millar is acting as overseer for 20th Century Fox’s Marvel franchises, and he opened up in a new interview about what fans can look forward to in the upcoming flick.
“I don’t really want to give too much away but the Sentinels are a big feature of this story,” he told SFX magazine. “They will be cool and this will deliver on all of the teasers. We’ve all been waiting for this ever since ’X-Men: The Last Stand’ showed us one of their heads. Now it is finally coming, and we only have to pay ten quid to see it in the cinema whereas they’re having to pay $100 million to deliver it. So I’m delighted.”
Another big question about the film is how big of a role all of the returning cast members will play in in it. Millar likened their roles to those in “Lost,” explaining it is “an ensemble but every character gets their own moment to shine.” One of those returning characters will be Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde, and it seems like she will get a nice story arc.
“I cannae get into that,” Millar said with a laugh when asked about Kitty. “As soon as I say something it will turn into a big internet story. Let me put it this way though: Kitty Pryde fans will not be disappointed.”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is coming out on July 18, 2014.
