Mark Millar continues to stir the pot for X-Men: Days of Future Past. As Fox's Marvel consultant, he has firsthand knowledge of the sequel, and in a recent interview he teased some key elements from the story. He confirmed that Sentinels will make an appearance, and suggested the return of Kitty Pryde.
"I don’t really want to give too much away, but the Sentinels are a big feature of this story," Millar revealed. "They will be cool and this will deliver on all of the teasers. We’ve all been waiting for this ever since X-Men: The Last Stand showed us one of their heads. Now it is finally coming, and we only have to pay ten quid to see it in the cinema, whereas they’re having to pay $100 million to deliver it. So I’m delighted [laughs].”
As for Kitty, Millar didn't openly discuss the character, but he did drop a hint.
“Ach, I cannae get into that [laughs]. As soon as I say something it will turn into a big Internet story. Let me put it this way though: Kitty Pride fans will not be disappointed."
We can't imagine Days of Future Past without Kitty. She was a huge part of the comic arc. They need to make that work.
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters July 18, 2014.
