Watch: X-Men Unite in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Comic-Con Panel

With a meeting that was comparable to the first assembly of The Avengers on stage back during Comic-Con 2011, 20th Century Fox decided to have a little assembly of their own with the panel for X-Men: Days of Future Past. The presence of Trask Industries and their Sentinels in San Diego seemed to indicate a "surprise" appearance from Bryan Singer's latest mutant sequel, and following The Wolverine panel with Hugh Jackman, the actor introduced the filmmaker, claiming he was behind a recent low profile indie project of his he wanted to promote. But what followed was anything but low profile, and you can watch it!
Here's the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel from Comic-Con 2013, via Emergency Awesome:
As you can seen, nearly all the X-Men from both the original film franchise and the new prequel series that began with X-Men: First Class are present and accounted for including Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage and Evan Peters. The actors were also joined by writer and co-producer Simon Kinberg, producer Lauren Schuler Donner and producer Hutch Parker. This panel was truly something to behold, and the caliber of this cast, full of Oscar nominees and winners, cannot be denied. We can't wait for the film to arrive May 23rd, 2014.

Jackman, Dinklage, McAvoy, Fassbender, Stewart, McKellen, Lawrence, Berry, Page. It still amazes me that they get such brilliant actors to participate in comic book movies. Even with cheesy dialogue and over the top acting, they bring a credibility to the genre. I am very excited about this film especially with Singer back on the helm.

This has got to be the greatest ensemble cast in movie history. Bryan Singer has brought the good old days of X-Men and X2: X-Men United back to life! He's an awesome X-Men director (and awesome director in general) and he for sure knows what he's doing. Really looking forward to this next Summer!

This is kind of awkward, lol. Specially Brian Singer. James McAvoy is such a cool guy, really stands out for me, and awesome t shirt! Hope this turns out amazing! And Jackman needs to do an Avengers one before retiring from the role. I am also curious to hear from you guys, what is your favourite character from X-Men? For me Gambit and Cyclops all the way.

Rogue and Angel, but I love Nightcrawler and Gambit too, same with Cyclops, specially after the sad treatment he had on the trilogy; but Im sure that will change really soon 😉

Cast intro starts @ 17:50 fyi But wow. Kudos to them all for showing up. Edit: Also... how is Peter Dinklage so pimp? Breaking the laws of physics that one.

Honestly, So excited for this, The Avengers was too camp for me, I need a gritty superhero MARVEL film, X2 is hands down one of the best superhero films of the last 10 years, I love when films reflect on earlier films kinda like the fast and furious movies, yes they are not real plot heavy but they stayed true to what they were and made sure they did everything possible to get all the actors back, i can really see the love that is going into this movie, Literally this is going to be 100x better than Avengers and I am kinda liking the competition that Marvel Studios and Fox are brewing up with these two films, based on Weedon thinking that he created the greatest thing but really, he didn't he made a really generic camp superhero movie with little depth, fun and entertains yes, but x1, x2, and first class were films that made superhero's more complex in their existence in the world rather than in the avengers made the general public love them and easy to write them off unlike xmen where they are the moral factor and judge mutants.

Such a memorable panel. it was a big special day of X-Men fans, seeing all that talent together for the very first time along with the return of Bryan as the director. This movie will be something to remember, I can guarantee that
