Comic-Con 2013: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Cast Storm Hall H

Bryan Singer

Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and more participated in the panel.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" indeed took part at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Director Bryan Singer brought almost all cast members including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Halle Berry, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult among others.

First footage from the hotly-anticipated pic, due out May 2014, popped on the big screen. It features almost all mutants. Among scenes previewed in it, there are some that leave quite an impression. Beast tries to drown young Magneto, who is later seen using his power to drag a helpless Mystique toward him.

During the Q&A session, Singer enjoyed directing ensemble films though this one particular project was more of a "logistical nightmare." As a child of the 1970s, he felt blessed for being able to revisit the fashion of the era through the film.

"Peter Dinklage looks like my father in this film," said Singer, to whom Dinklage responded, "That handsome? I've got a sweet Tom Selleck mustache I'm sporting."

McKellen, meanwhile, drew laughs by addressing Proposition 8. Saying that he felt "safe" now returning to California, the openly gay actor turned to Fassbender and said, "I'm looking for a husband. It's great to meet you, Michael."

Omar Sy took the opportunity to confirm that he would play Bishop in the movie. Asked which other X-Men character she would like to play, Lawrence who was there for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" panel too answered, "The good thing about my character is that I can do that with anyone."

Prior to the X-Men panel, 20th Century Fox hosted panels for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and "The Wolverine". On hand for the presentation of the former film were director Matt Reeves, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis who received a rousing welcome.
