Just as he’s done throughout the production, director Bryan Singer has been tweeting from the set of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ to tease the fans. Two weeks ago, one of his posts mentioned a “pivotal meeting” in the White House, while another showed protesters outside of a French Embassy. Now, it appears that there is a connection between the two as indicated by the most recent tweet.
In his latest peek into the X-Universe that he’s working in right now, Singer shared the following picture on his personal Twitter that shows what looks to be a stage set up for a speech. Then, on the podium overlooking the audience, a piece of White House letterhead reads, “Today we face the gravest threat in our history. What the world witnessed in Paris was not an isolated incident…” You can view the post below:

Coming Soon speculates that the scene that Singer is teasing involves a mutant attack and President Nixon announcing the creation of the Sentinels by Trask Industries, a company that may be connected to whichever character Peter Dinklage will be playing, but a commenter on the report gives a slightly different account of what’s happening:
“I know a friend who worked on the set this day, he told me the scene was about the first show up of a sentinel at a press conference. I think what you guys will like is that the sentinel are built in real size. Those guys built them for real.
The scene is about the president getting attacked by mutants and we see the sentinel kill all of them with a machine gun on his arm, or sort of.”
Both seem like very plausible explanations as to what’s happening, but no matter what, it definitely looks like it will involve the President of the United States and mutants. What’s your theory on what’s going on in this scene? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section.
