Fans of Chris Claremont and John Byrne's 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' story arc will likely recall which characters made an appearance in the classic X-Men tale and which of them did not. Those that did make an appearance are some of the most recognizable characters in the X-Men universe: Wolverine, Storm, Kitty Pryde and Cyclops -- all of these characters played a significant part in the comic book story, and some have also made previous appearances in the X-Men franchise films. So how many of the characters that appeared in this story will also appear in the film adaptation?
One of the challenges that screenwriter Simon Kinberg and the film's director Bryan Singer will likely face is the fact that they will not only have to translate the 'Days of Future Past' story into film, but they will also have to write it in a way that will seem like a sequel to X-Men: First Class. So how do you merge these two stories together in a way that makes sense? How do you make 'Days of Future Past' a sequel to 'X-Men: First Class' and how many of the characters that we saw in First Class will we see in the sequel?== TEASER ==
According to actress January Jones, we won't be seeing Emma Frost in the next film, at least as far as she knows she won't be making much of an appearance.
I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one. Well they haven’t told me if I am (laughs). I wouldn’t put it past them though, I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there. It’s called Days of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellan], and I think it’s gonna go back and forth with those so I don’t think Emma’s in those bits. I don’t know, I really don’t know.
It would make sense that the sequel would be more about Magneto and Charles Xavier and the fact that changes made to the time stream could lead to some dire consequences. What do you think? Do you feel that there's still room to have Ms. Jones reprise her role as Emma Frost in the sequel? Are you looking forward to the sequel to X-Men: First Class?
