Oooof… looks like Professor X is a victim of poor fashion in Bryan Singer’s First class sequel DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. In weeks prior, we’ve hit you with a deluge of photos of the “modern day” cast (Jackman, Mckellen, Berry, Stewart, Page) but this is the first picture of one of the returning leads, James Mcavoy… and he looks like 150 pounds of disco fever.
As long as Singer doesn’t subject us to copious amounts of Bee Gees, I won’t mind this flick. But then again… how amazing would a Prof X and Magneto dance-off be to the sweet tunes of “Staying Alive”?
Acting as a sequel to both X-Men: First Class and 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand, the third film in the series, Days of Future Past includes cast members from both: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from the original trilogy, while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult return from X-Men: First Class. Hugh Jackman, the only actor to have appeared in each of the previous X-Men films, will reprise his role as Wolverine. Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart and Fan Bingbing round out the film’s principal cast. Principal photography began in April 2013 in Montreal, Canada with filming wrapping in October 2013. The film is being shot in 3D.
