The X-Men Days Of Future Past Timeline Starts To Come Into Focus
The first casting calls for X-Men: Days of Future Past state, pretty plainly, that "most of the film" will be set in 1973. This means a gap of over ten years since the events First Class.
Meanwhile, we've been led to believe that the "future" sequences will be set in the present day - albeit an alternative version of the present day. The kind of alternative present day where Mr. Strickland comes striding out onto his porch with a shotgun... if Mr. Strickland were a giant robot and the shotgun were a laser claw.
This arrangement is a reverse of the original comic that had the X-Men's future in the future and the "past" be the present. There really won't be any missing the metaphorical value in the "future" bits now.
Singer yesterday tweeted out this image of a set model. I don't know what this building is, or will be...
X-Men: Days of Future Past will be filming from April through to August.

I hope they use this as an excuse to reset and recast for future movies."However, Liefeld is an enigma wrapped in a pouch-filled, muscular, footless conundrum." - ThanosCopter

Nice one Brendon, but who's Mr Strickland?

The set model looks like it's maybe an exploded view of the mansion.

Looks like Sir Ian and Fassbender to the left of the photo - they can't get any closer to one another because like magnetic charges repel.

1973 seems like kind of a blah year to me. I mean, Watergate is in progress and the Vietnam War is still going on, but neither of those things resolves in that year. I would have preferred 72 (the election), 74 (Nixon resigns), or 75 (Vietnam ends) if they were going to do early 70s. Heck, it won't even be exactly 40 years ago by the time the movie comes out...
