[Movies] Chris Claremont Says He's Optimistic About X-Men: Days of Future Past
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.05.2013



Chris Claremont, the acclaimed writer of the X-Men comic books who wrote the storyline arc that is being adapted for X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently spoke with Newsarama about the upcoming film. Check out the highlights:

On Bryan Singer's challenge with the film: "The challenge, I would think, for Bryan is that the heart of the original story is not the fight with the Brotherhood back in the present day. The challenge, the story, is actually what happens in the future. Getting them to the point where you can send Kitty [Pryde, aka Shadowcat] back, and seeing the consequences of what will happen if they fail, and not knowing at the end how it's going to turn out. You think it's going to be a happy ending, but you're not sure, because pretty much everybody dies -- in the comic, anyway."

On the time travel elements: "You could look at it as time travel, or you could look at it as pan-dimension. It's all a matter of how you want to define it, and I'm sure they've got some brainiacs out on the left coast earning a small research stipend figuring out a plausible way of making it fly. That's the fun and games of Hollywood. How the hell they're going to fit it into 120 minutes, I have no sodding idea. I'd be looking on this as your basic 1974 film with an intermission."

On his optimism regarding the film: "The really nice thing with Future Past is that you actually have a superhero film -- much to everyone's surprise, I will hope -- that is about something. It's about racism, I hope. It's about resisting oppression. It's about fighting for freedom and the cost of fighting for freedom. I will be fascinated to see how they weave the two together."
