X-Men: Days Of Future Past Could Have Been VERY Different
Matthew Vaughn reveals how Bryan Singer changed a key scene...
One of the most-memorable scenes from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would have been quite different if there hadn't been a change of director before it was made.
Matthew Vaughn, who dropped out of helming the project but remained as co-writer, has revealed that his replacement Bryan Singer changed a key scene to feature Evan Peters' Quicksilver instead of Vinnie Jones' Juggernaut.
Speaking to Empire, Vaughn explained that Quicksilver's high-speed break-in at the White House was initially intended to be a more brutal crash-and-grab by Juggernaut.
"I had Juggernaut being thrown out of a plane at 20,000 feet and using his head to go down a hole to get to the bottom," he said.
Explaining that Beast (Nicholas Hoult) was to have been flying the plane, he continued: "I had Beast saying, 'I have a plan,' and him replying, 'What's the plan? What's the plan?', and they go higher and higher and Beast was going to go, 'This is it!' and chuck him out the window.
"Then he goes smashing through (The White House)... and Magneto goes, 'Who the f**k are you?'"
But the director of Kingsmen: The Secret Service had the good grace to concede that Singer's version was "the best scene in the movie".
"I would have made the movie worse," he insisted. "The Quicksilver one was better."
We're not sure Vinnie Jones would agree with you on that one Matthew!
