Out of all the major superhero films being released in the near future, the one I'm looking forward to the most is X-Men: Days of Future Past. Why? Because it's the most unpredictable. We may know the basic storyline, but we don't know how elements like time-travel or dystopian futures are going to be implemented. I can't wait to see how they pull it off, so any detail they release is something that catches my eye. Fortunately, we have two details to look at.
The first is that the character Storm, played by Halle Berry, will be making an appearance, most likely in one of the scenes taking place in the totalitarian future. She likely won't be a huge part of the story (which is a good thing, if you saw X-Men: The Last Stand), but the more familiar characters we have in the two timelines, the tighter the continuity is.
The second is some details regarding the nature of the Mystique makeup Jennifer Laurence will have to wear. There have always been issues with the characters costume. The original actress for the character in X-Men spent the night of the premier vomiting up blue paint, if the stories are to be believed. Jennifer Laurence is very happy, though, because they've found a way other then the paint.
"I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a body suit [in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past']," she told E! Online. "It will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters."
An actor who has appeared mostly in costume once told me that pretty much any significant movie makeup you see is excruciatingly uncomfortable, so it's good that they've at least found a way to reduce that. I doubt it would be very conducive to a performance as Mystique.
X-Men: Days of Future Past begins shooting in April.
