X-Men fans can expect a few golden nuggets of wisdom from November's Entertainment Weekly, with neat little quotes from director as well as some of the mutants/cast. Firstly, Singer mentioned Xavier's upcoming upgrade to his iconic chair:
Xavier's chair is a hover chair. That's something I wanted to do from the comic that I hadn't seen yet.
Fans will be happy to see Xavier getting a souped-up chair, not least because this is a direct lift from the comics. Singer also talked about the hotly-anticipated character of Bolivar Trask, who will be played by Game of Thrones megastar and all-round boss, :
He's actually kind of a peace lover. He sees the advent of the mutants as a way to unite people. There's this moment where he basically explains when modern men came along, it meant extinction for the Neanderthal; now humans are the Neanderthal, so this fight is for our survival as a species.
However, it's not all peace, love and hover chairs. notes that his character, Hank/Beast, has a bone to pick with 's Erik/Magneto:
There's bad blood because of everything Erik's done to Charles. Obviously Hank is on Charles' side completely.
was a little more cryptic about the interaction between his Xavier and Wolverine, saying 'Wolverine basically plays the Charles Xavier role in this movie and I kind of play the Wolverine role,' adding that fans could expect a couple of surprising events.
Speaking of Wolverine, the most interesting/spoilery of all the cast interviews came when Singer talked about him.
Wolverine is set to go hurtling back in time - probably without one of those cheesy wormhole sequences with whirling clocks in the background - where he'll team up with Xavier to bust Magneto from prison, then attempt to prevent Trask from making the Sentinels.
