The X-Men: First Class sequel will feature time travel and will be based on Days Of Future Past, one of the most famous story from the comic book series. The makers of the film have registered the title, Days Of Future Past, with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), reported E! online. The storyline switches between the present day and a future in which mutants are an outlawed species, following the assassination of Senator Kelly by villain Magneto (Michael Fassbender).

Simon Kinberg, who also worked as a screenwriter on X-Men: The Last Stand, will write the script while Matthew Vaughn will once again direct. For the sequel, there would only be one new character, said the director, adding: “We will only be bringing one more new character in. But I won’t say who he or she is! I think, as Professor X (James McAvoy) is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is. It would be nice if I could say something, but I can’t,” Vaughn said.
