Principal photography has officially wrapped on X-Men: Days of Future Past, the highly anticipated sequel to X-Men: First Class! The film will now enter its post-production editing and CGI phase, where the talented team behind the film will work to add in special effects for many of the X-Men team members, villains, and action sequences. The cast and film crew may still come together for re-shoots later in the year, as has become a common trend with films, but nothing has been announced.
The film’s director, Brian Singer, has officially announced that production complete on his Twitter feed, where fans have come to expect “insider information” from the set, including set photos. True to his nature, Singer tweeted several photos from the set on the last two days of filming which included a look at actor Michael Fassbender in his role as young Magneto as well as a glimpse into filming scenes on the water and a look at some of the X-Men costumes and other items (including wings) from the set. Additionally, the director included a final day wrap photo which showed himself with members of the film crew and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine):
Now that filming is over, it’s likely that special photos from Singer’s Twitter feed will slow down or cease all together, which is disappointing for fans. However, the start of CGI work and editing means that we can expect official trailers to start hitting the airwaves within the next six months or so!
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to hit theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
