X-Men has been a comic and TV series but was brought to the screen for the first time by director Bryan Singer back in 2000.

Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, James Marsden and Famke Janssen were all on board the movie as a franchise was born.

X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand followed in 2003 and 2006, movies which helped turn X-Men into a billion dollar franchise.

In 2011 we saw the early days of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr’s friendship as Matthew Vaughn directed X-Men: First Class.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the sequel to that movie and will see Bryan Singer return to the director’s chair. The movie will mix characters from First Class as well as some franchise favourites.
