Mark Millar had some teasers sure to get fanboys excited. About “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, he said he was confident in Bryan Singer’s ability to direct an ensemble cast and had this to say about the sentinels:

“I don’t really want to give too much away but the Sentinels are a big feature of this story. They will be cool and this will deliver on all of the teasers. We’ve all been waiting for this ever since X-Men: The Last Stand showed us one of their heads. Now it is finally coming, and we only have to pay ten quid to see it in the cinema.”

He also said Kitty Pryde fans “will not be disappointed”. Ellen Page is returning as the character.

Millar also said there are plans for a “Kick-Ass 3”, but that will be the end.

“Kick-Ass 3 is going to be the last one though. I told Universal this and they asked me, ‘What does that mean?’ I said, ‘It means that this is where it all ends.’ They said, ‘Do they all die at the end?’ I said, ‘Maybe’ – because this is a realistic superhero story. And if someone doesn’t have a bullet proof vest like Superman and doesn’t have Batman’s millions then eventually he is going turn around the wrong corner and get his head kicked in or get shot in the face [laughs]. So Kick-Ass needs to reflect that. There has to be something dramatic at the end, he cannot do this for the rest of his life.”

The new X-Men film also stars Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Patrick Steweart, Hugh Jackman and a host of others.
