When it was announced that the latest instalment of the X-Men movie franchise, titled X-Men: Days of Future Past, was going to link a lot of the original X-Men movie characters with a lot of the new X-Men stars, a lot of people thought that it was over-ambitions and would be difficult to achieve. However, Bryan Singer and co. have pulled it off and the movie opens in a few weeks time.
Bryan Singer directed X-Men and X-Men 2 but left the franchise for X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class, before agreeing to return for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Meanwhile, actor Shawn Ashmore is back to reprise his role as Bobby aka Iceman in X-Men: Days of Future Past and the star has been talking about the role, while admitting that the film is very important to Singer.
Ashmore told MTV News, "I've been playing Bobby for thirteen years, this is my fourth movie playing Iceman so not only is it amazing to come back and interact with the same actors again - and the caliber of actors we get to work with is amazing. But also, Bryan Singer, he directed the first two films, he sort of started this journey, he cast a lot of us... I know how important this move is to him."
While the trailers have given us a good look at X-Men: Days of Future Past and got us very excited for the film, we only have a few more weeks to wait before we get to see the full movie on the big screen, as X-Men: Days of Future Past will open on May 22 in the UK, before then hitting the big screen in the US a day later, on May 23.
