Comic Con: "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

"The Wolverine" director James Mangold and actor Hugh Jackman showed up to pimp that film, though with the movie opening around the world in less than a week I'm not really going to cover it here.

After that finished, Jackman pulled out director Bryan Singer for 'Days'. Singer says a month of shooting has yet to go on the movie, but he's brought along some 3D footage to show off.

The footage shows how the old X-Men and new X-Men cast come together. The modern X-Men world is now borderline dystopian, the elderly Professor X and Magneto bring Wolverine to a war chamber and it looks like the "war" is being lost. The pair have teamed up in an effort to stop the war before it starts.

To do this, Kitty Pride will send Wolverine's modern day consciousness back into his own body in the 1970's where he must warn the younger versions of the pair of what's to come. McAvoy and Fassbender's incarnations sport period-specific outfits, McAvoy meets Stewart's incarnation in one scene.

There's also shots of Cerebro exploding, the Oval Office floor opening up, Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) addressing the government, and a young Magneto using powers to pull Mystique along the floor.

Pretty much the entire cast showed up after the footage - Singer, Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Omar Sy, Shawn Ashmore, Evan Peters, writer Simon Kinberg, and producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker.

McKellen had one of the best lines of the night, saying "It's so good to be back in California now that you've gotten rid of Prop 8. I'm always looking for a new husband. Nice to meet you, Michael [Fassbender]." Jackman also wowed the crowd with some singing.

Omar Sy says his character Bishop comes from "the future" and is fighting to survive. Singer denied a fan question that Deadpool will be in the movie.
