The director-fed speculation surrounding X-Men: Days Of Future Past continues. With dropping teases and hints all over the place as to who and what we can expect from the next installment to the franchise, and having recently confirmed that yes, there will be Sentinels in this one, another tantalizing possibility has been dropped into the buzz surrounding the movie.
Will we be seeing an all-CGI character? More specifically, is this how Singer will decide to bring the Sentinels to life?
In a recent interview with MTV (Totalfilm), Singer was asked whether or not the motion-capture technology he used in his upcoming Jack the Giant Slayer was anything he'd consider using again. Say, for a mutant movie or two... His response was as evasive and teasing as always when asked questions about Days of Future Past:
I definitely want to use this technology again, and I might even be using some of it in a different way in X-Men. I don't wanna say how, yet, but I'm definitely using some of this technology on X-Men which I never used in any of the other X-Men films...
That's the thing I don't want to talk about. I'm not sure. I'm doing research on it now.
Interesting. Considering the Sentinels are, well, giant robots, it might be the best way to bring them to the screen. One can surmise they're going to require a lot of CGI anyway, so why not play around with a new form of technology that might make them even more realistic and badass? In any case, it's something to think about.
