- As The Hollywood Reporter wrote in December, sources indicate stars of the original trilogy will appear mostly in scenes depicting a dystopian future, so time commitments for the actors are likely to be minimal.
- The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past to save our future.
