Comic book movies can be tricky. Making them requires appeasing comic book fans while making it completely accessible to the millions that don't necessarily follow comics religiously. X-Men: First Class was well received among comic book fans and the idea of a sequel was appealing. Then it was announced the title would be X-Men: Days of Future Past. On that day, the internet trembled as comic readers cringed over the idea of Hollywood attempting to adapt this classic story.
In September it was announced that Mark Millar would be consulting on Fox's Marvel movies. That was seen as a good thing and now that included the X-Men movies as well. Millar recently spoke with SFX magazine about the next X-Men film.
Vaughn is going for a big sci-fi style thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's X-Men meets The Terminator.
Let's think about that. That could be pretty cool. I honestly can't really see giant purple/pink Sentinels coming after the X-Men. If this movie takes place in the 70s, as originally planned, bringing giant robots into the past might be much.

He did arrive in the present and hunted Rachel Summers, who came from the alternate Days of Future Past timeline.
Millar also mentioned the cost of the movie will go up but noted that Vaughn can "handle it" as he made Kick-Ass for only $28 million.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is schedule to land in theaters in July 2014. What do you think of this angle and what would you like to see in the movie?
