We start Sequeltember 2023 with the sequel to last June’s episode on X-Men: First Class - itself a movie that didn’t deserve to be as good as it was, but it really was.

When a sequel to X-Men: First Class was announced, fan expectation was high. Not only did it adapt a much beloved and influential comic book series, it also announced it was bringing the original trilogy cast and the new cast together, for the first and only time…

But bringing together the new and old casts for X-Men: Days of Future Past wasn't easy, due to scheduling issues, other work commitments, and a surprise pregnancy.

And just how did Anna Paquin only get two seconds of screen time for five days worth of work?

I would love to hear your thoughts on X-Men: Days of Future Past !
