Bryan Singer has a number of superhero flicks under his belt, having directed X-Men, X2, and DC Comics film Superman Returns. He also produced and wrote for X-Men: First Class, the prequel to the X-Men film series.

That being said, it looks like X-Men: Days of Future Past is in good hands and will be a fantastic kick-off to this summer's blockbuster films.

Starring the older mutants (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Hugh Jackman) and their younger counterparts (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Hugh Jackman) alongside the likes of Storm (yes, Halle Berry's back!), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence, who looks comfortable in her blue skin) and Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), Days of Future Past follows the continuous war for survival of the mutant species.

With both future and past selves joining forces to change the past and inevitably save their future, we can expect to have to go to the cinema prepared for wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff. And the more wibbly wobbly, the better.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled for release May 22.
