Mark Millar On X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

He endorses Singer, confirms or reaffirms Sentinels are a big part of the story, and is evading any questions about about Kitty Pryde.



Sounds like Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past is following the original Chris Claremont story arc pretty closely. Check out what comic book writer and 20th Century Fox Creative Consultant Mark Millar has to say about the film in an interview with SFX Magazine.

On the number of X-Men in the film and if any will get lost in the shuffle.
Millar: "It has actually been very well put together – Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn worked on it together and they are both great at what they do. Then Bryan Singer came in, and, of course, he is Mr X-Men and he knows exactly how everything works. Just look at these first two X-Men movies: despite the huge cast of characters it all came together really well. These two movies never felt like overload and the balance was really, really good. On the other hand I though the third film felt crowded, but then Singer is excellent at working with ensemble casts. So with this one I feel it is all fine. I have read the screenplay and it doesn’t feel rushed and it doesn’t feel like it is too many characters.”

On Sentinels and if giant robots are the new trend in Hollywood.
Millar: “I hadn’t actually thought about that [laughs]. Yeah, that is true isn’t it? You will have a couple of big movies with giant robots in them. I don’t really want to give too much away but the Sentinels are a big feature of this story. 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 [laughs].”

On Kitty Pryde.
Millar: “Ach, I cannae get into that [laughs]. As soon as I say something it will turn into a big internet story. Let me put it this way though: Kitty Pride fans will not be disappointed."
