The last X-Men movie hit theaters in 2011, and Marvel probably took a break from releasing one this year to make way for The Avengers (which has already became the third highest grossing movie of all time!)

Now that break is over, as The Wolverine began filming just a couple of days ago and a sequel for X-Men: First Class is well underway. Information about the latter sequel has been scarce--up until today, that is, with the release of this interview that IGN did with producer Bryan Singer.

Singer revealed some key stuff about the movie, the biggest one being the title of the movie.

It's called 'Days of Future Past.' It deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things.

Check out the interview on the player above, then hit the jump to catch our recap on the key points from Bryan's interview.

  • If you read the comics, then you'll recognize that Days of Future Past is actually one of the more popular storylines that ran in The Uncanny X-Men, which alternated between present day and an alternative dystopian future as the X-Men fought off Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
  • The script for the movie is still being written, but if everything goes on schedule, then it'll hit theaters as planned by July 18, 2014.
  • The film will be directed by Matthew Vaughn, and you can expect the original cast of First Class to come back in full force.
  • The sequel will be touching on other aspects of the entire X-Men film franchise. In Bryan's words, we might be seeing more 'connectivity.' Could this mean that we'll be seeing more crossovers and spin-offs in the future?
