'X-Men' Photos Ratchet Up the Political Tension on Set

It’s getting difficult avoiding spoilers for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past… particularly when the director keeps tweeting official images from his set! 

The other day, Patrick Stewart appeared at Comicpalooza to address X-Men fans about his role in the upcoming story. During said conversation, he says there WILL be some explanation of how he returns from the dead, which is great. But Singer followed that up with a pair of revealing images, including a look inside President Richard Nixon’s White House: 
 
 
The second image likely ties into the reveal of Nixon’s involvement in the picture. It’s a gathering of protestors that Singer tags with the quote, “Good morning, Vietnam!” Take a look:
 
 
We know that half of Singer’s movie will take place in the 1970s, as we’ve seen images of Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and more in period garb. But this is the first indication of the fact that Future Past might involve Vietnam in a way the prequel First Class tied in to the Bay of Pigs standoff. 
 
Either way, we’ll be in theaters on opening night when X-Men: Days of Future Past opens next summer on July 18.
