We’re live now with X-Men: Days Of Future Past writer and producer Simon Kinberg to watch along with his modern superhero classic. #DaysOfFuturePast #WFHTheater
"After we did X-Men First Class, the notion of doing a cross-generational story where we could have both casts in the same movie that was so juicy to me, it seemed like a no brainer." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"This movie is really for the fans. We have more famous and fan favorite X-Men characters in this more than in any other movie." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Both Bryan Singer and Matthew Vaughn are huge fans of the cartoons. I grew up as a fan of the comics. It was an interesting balance between us." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"The character who was in the movie but who was cut was Rogue. She was in Kitty's place for a certain time. Anna did solid work and had a whole subplot with Magneto and Bobby. That's in the Rogue Cut." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Peter Dinklage brought so much to the character [as Trask]. You feel a deep reservoir of resentment. You feel genuine fear of mutants from him." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"My favorite time travel franchise is The Terminator. I once asked James Cameron to sign my fan book during an event in San Diego. He signed it: 'Dear Simon, don't f*ck it up, love James.'" - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"We try to be as creative as we can with powers. We always ask how do you use them in a way you haven't seen before? This is kind of bullet time. And we did 30 or 40 takes of Evan Peters improvising in the elevator scene." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Because Wolverine never ages, he felt like the most natural person to send back in time. @RealHughJackman is our Tony Stark in this film." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
JFK a mutant? "We didn't spend much time on it in the film but we spent a lot of timing talking about it. I don't know what his mutant power would be, but his family is powerful and mysterious, like the Waynes." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"10 years have passed since First Class. We imply that after that movie, Mystique goes off with Magneto to start the first Brotherhood of Mutants. She trained under Magneto." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Dark Phoenix was a hard movie because when I wrote it, it was meant to be a two-part movie. Having to change it into one and work around a massive change was challenging. Ultimately I was happy with the cut that we released." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"The old and young Professor X scene is such an incredible fan moment. It's my favorite scene I've ever written." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Look for Rogue in the mirror of one of those pillars [during the final battle]. You can see her in a very quick shot. We didn't notice it for ages and haven't seen anyone mention it online." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Storm is one of my favorite characters from the comics and doesn't have the same prominence in the films. I wrote a philosophical discussion about war between her and Bishop, but it didn't make it into the film." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
"Wolverine didn't just save the world, he saved the woman he loved. Bringing [Jean] back was emotional for me." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
How do you think Avengers: Endgame handled time travel? "I love Endgame, it's one of my favorite comic book movies of all time. The MCU's tone in general is a bit more playful than our movies. We went more operatic, dramatic." - Simon Kinberg #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
Simon Kinberg would absolutely direct an X-Men film for Marvel, if the opportunity came up. "I've dedicated a lot of my life to Logan and Deadpool and the X-Men and would love to do a fresh take." #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
That's a wrap! Thanks for joining us for X-Men: Days of Future Past! We will be back with more Watch From Home Theater, stay tuned! #XMen #DaysofFuturePast #WFHTheater
