[Movies] Bryan Singer Talks About Professor X and Magneto's Relationship In X-Men: Days of Future Past
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.24.2014

In an interview with IGN from the set, director Bryan Singer spoke about the relationship of Charles Xavier and Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Here are highlights:

On the relationship of Professor X and Magneto: "I just shot some… yesterday we did James' first scene, not his very first scene but the scene that follows it promptly. When we come upon him, he looks like a homeless guy. [laughs] I mean James, he's really found a great character for where he's at. That's kind of fun. When I made X-Men one and two, Patrick and Ian always had questions about where they came from, what their relationship was, what was their friendship. And so First Class was a beautiful way to explore that, and now this is the story of them slowly becoming, on the journey to becoming Patrick and Ian. So it's nice to have Patrick and Ian in the movie as well to remind us where we want them to go."

On President Nixon's role: "He's Nixon. [laughs] But yeah, not all that speech [that he's making today] is going to make it [into the finished film]. There's two parts of the speech, which I'll use the rest as kind of a filler because we cut away from the scene to this ominous thing that's happening. You hear it on the radio, so I just asked him for some filler dialogue. It was a bit draconian, he's not so "raaaar." He's just nervous."

On why he chose Days of Future Past: Well, this one because of the notion of the time travel element of it. It enabled us to find a way to incorporate both casts, and we really wanted to do that. And as the story structure was coming through I suddenly, I believe, cracked the time travel, the logic of it. And then once that happened it was, "Oh, this is the story worth telling, this will be fun," Especially for people, people like my mother who are not particularly X-Men fans. Those are not her favorite movies of mine, but the moment I told her what it was, she was like, "Oh, I love time travel." Because a time travel movie is very specific, whether it's Back to the Future or Time Machine or Looper, there is something eternally fascinating about going back and affecting the past and future, multiverses, and all that stuff."
