Okay, what is this crap exactly?Singer may also tease details of the film's plot, which is based on a 1981 comic-book story line authored by Chris Claremont. That version presented a dystopian future ruled by Sentinels, a setting so grim for our heroes that fan-favorite mutant Kitty Pryde sends her consciousness back in time to warn the X-Men, who then try to stop the assassination of a senator that would set in motion the mutant-threatening events to come. In Singer's take, Ellen Page returns as Kitty from the Brett Ratner–directed X-Men: The Last Stand, but this time she uses her powers to send Hugh Jackman's Wolverine back into the past, where he encounters the younger mutants played by James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender. However, something bad happens to Kitty during the time-travel trance, and while Wolverine is still under her spell, the other X-Men must race to find a mutant who can siphon Kitty's powers and bring their friend back to the future. Could that be the plot development that brings Anna Paquin's power-copying Rogue into the fold once again?
Who decided it was a good idea to take one of the most famous, best X-Men story lines from its glory days of Claremont/Byrne and change not only one of the characters, but also rewrite the story so that you're going into the past from the present rather than the present into the future? At least, that is how this synopsis seems to read.
It shouldn't even be called by this title, if you're going to change the story like that. I don't care if Singer is doing it, this is pretty much garbage. If I'm going to see a movie called "X-Men: Days of Future Past," I expect to see Kitty going into the future to watch all of her friends die.
