<i>X-Men: Days of Future Past</i> Set Pic Teases President Nixon Speech

Bryan Singer continues to hint at international political unrest in his upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past. Earlier this month the director released a pair of images featuring Vietnam demonstrators as well as a meeting held inside Richard Nixon’s Oval Office. Now you can see the latest image tweeted by Singer, which looks like some kind of Presidential address. Part of the speech is even visible, starting off with, “Today we face the gravest threat in our history. What the world witnessed in Paris was not an isolated incident …”

Days of Future Past takes its name from a 1981 Uncanny X-Men story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne that features a future where mutants are hunted by Sentinels and thrown into camps. In that potential future, the assassination of the President of the United States by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants lead to more intense anti-mutant sentiment. Could this image be from that fateful day in mutant history?

The film, which combines elements from all previous X-films, stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing and Adan Canto.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
