Bryan Singer has been tight lipped about the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class, titled Days of Future Past, with most of the information usually coming from the stars themselves. However, in a recent interview with MTV, the director finally revealed an intriguing piece of information about the plot via the technology he plans to use.
In the interview, Singer was talking about the giants he created in Jack the Giant Slayer, and he was asked if he will be using the technology again in future projects, and his response was a bit telling with regards to Days of Future Past’s villain:
“I definitely want to use this technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in X-Men,” he explained. “I don’t wanna say how, yet, but I’m definitely using some of this technology on X-Men which I never used in any of the other X-Men films.
“That’s the thing I don’t want to talk about,” added Singer when asked if he’ll be creating a fully-CGI character. “I’m not sure. I’m doing research on it now.”
Considering the source material (the Days of Future Past story arc from the comic books), it is possible that Singer is trying to come up with a way to bring the Sentinels to life on the big screen. A Sentinel has already made an appearance in the 3rd X-Men movie, but it was in the form of a danger room hologram, and we only saw bits and pieces (literally.)
