Since the new X men Movie is going to launch we decided to tell our readers few awesome things about this movie which they might not know

1. The addition of Evan Peters ( American Horror Story Fame) as Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver to the cast sparked wide discussion over the direction of the character who is also slated to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Quicksilver had been discussed previously as a potential character in both X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and Avengers Assemble (2012), but legal complexities over the license to the character resulted in his omission from both films. However, in May 2013 both Marvel and Fox Studios announced a resolution to the previous legal issues, and that Quicksilver would appear in this film as well as an Avengers sequel, though under certain parameters: no reference to Quicksilver’s membership in the Avengers can be made in an “X-Men” film, and no allusion to his relations to the X-Men or Magneto (the character’s father) can be made in an “Avengers” film; the rights agreement between Fox and Marvel even goes so far as to stipulate the character cannot be referred to as a “mutant” in any Marvel film. Additionally, the day after the announcement of Peters’s casting, Marvel and Fox entered into a legal standoff over provisions of the rights agreement for the character, including the issue of whether Peters would be allowed to portray Quicksilver in any other film outside the “X-Men” franchise, possibly necessitating a second actor to play Quicksilver in any Marvel film, resulting in two different versions of the same character appearing in two competing film series. Ultimately, Fox and Marvel decided to cast different actors in the part for the “X-Men” and “Avengers” films, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson taking on the role in the latter sequel, thus preventing any connection between the two franchises and keeping the X-Men confined to a separate universe from those of the Marvel cinematic universe.

2. Bryan Singer filmed the mutant Quicksilver’s scenes in a special format of 3600 frames per second. This was done to showcase Quicksilver’s speed ability: 3600 fps is 150 times slower than normal film (which is at 24 fps), so Quicksilver will be seen moving to 150 times as fast as normal.

3. Including his cameo in X-Men: First Class (2011), this will be Hugh Jackman’s seventh portrayal of Logan/Wolverine, raising his own record for the most times a comic book character has been played by the same actor in theatrical films. He will also be the only actor to appear in the entire X-Men film series.

4. The original ‘Days of Future past’ comic mentioned time travel from the year 2013, the same year in which filming began.

5. When Matthew Vaughn was going to direct, he was going to make the film a direct sequel to X-Men: First Class (2011) and have it set in the 1970s. Early ideas included an opening with the Kennedy assassination being caused by Magneto, and mutant encounters set in the Civil rights movement/the Vietnam War. When Singer took over, he integrated these concepts into a viral marketing campaign to set up the action of the film. In this alternate history, Magento is arrested and imprisoned for the assassination of Kennedy, but maintains his innocence. The “Bent Bullet” Theory (a reference to the real life “Magic Bullet” Theory criticized by conspiracy theorists) holds that the Warren Commission determined that Magento manipulated Lee Harvey Oswald’s bullets to kill the President in retribution for the murder of the mutants Azazel and Tempest (played by Jason Flemyng and Álex González in X-Men: First Class (2011) respectively) by the CIA. Conspiracy theorists, based on Magneto’s testimony, insist however that Magneto had tried to prevent the murder of Kennedy, and that the true shooter was not Oswald, but Mystique in disguise who, with the help of Emma Frost (played by January Jones in “First Class”) framed Magneto, and manipulated Jack Ruby into later murdering Oswald. The theory also posits that Mystique offered to double as Kennedy in an attempt to grab power, all of which backfired horribly, leading to anti-mutant hostilities.

6. According to Bryan Singer, he had a two-hour discussion with James Cameron, director of the time-travel films The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), about how to make the time-travel concept feasible and workable within the film. The concepts the two discussed included alternate universes and string theory (a field of quantum physics that define multiple universes).

7. A scene that was cut from X-Men: First Class (2011) where Xavier mentally controls a man to believe Magneto is a transvestite, appears in this film.

10. Bryan Singer is a big fan of Peter Dinklage and his show Game of Thrones (2011). Dinklage’s role of Tyrion Lannister inspired Singer to cast Dinklage as Trask.
