If there are still people out there who think Patrick Stewart was just taking the piss out of all the rumors about X-Men: Days of Future Past, a new on-set image tweeted by Bryan Singer himself will finally confirm that the original movie Professor X will indeed show up in the First Class sequel (the prequel’s sequel?).
The shot doesn’t reveal too much, except for the new costume the Professor is wearing. This may be an indication of an alternate future version of Xavier (alternate futures and time travel being a key plot element in Days of Future Past).
Singer captioned the picture with , “picture before picture… tomorrow it begins,” which confirms that filming will begin in earnest tomorrow, ahead of a 2014 release date.
Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens in the UK on 18 July 2014.
