     They are back! X-Men will not die! The newest film in the ever expanding Marvel universe is X-Men: Days of Future Past. Bryan Singer is back behind the director's chair, he previously directed the first two films, X-Men (2000) and X2 (2003). He has been in a slump, see, well, do not see the awful Jack the Giant Slayer, since the these two films and still has not directed anything of the quality that was The Usual Suspects (1995). Assuming a very nice paycheck for Singer and the whole gang is back. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, for the SEVENTH time, and a massive ensemble cast that includes the original cast and the cast from the origin film X-Men: First Class (2011). The film revolves around Wolverine going back in history to change the past so the future can be saved. An epic battle for the survival of the species. Umm...we will see? I am intrigued, being that this contains such an impressive cast, but it still is a superhero movie. The first two were not that bad and the origins film by Matthew Vaughan was ok, but I will be skeptical until I see something substantial. The cast includes the aforementioned Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellan, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Nicolas Hoult, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore and Peter Dinklage. The film will be released on May 23, 2014. Enjoy.
