If you thought the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past trailer was reminiscent of the Man of Steel - and not just because it used a Hans Zimmer music score - turns out you were correct.

Bryan Singer tells MTV that he was in part inspired by the Man of Steel for the X-Men: Days Of Future Past trailer.

"I asked for something kind of emotionally driven for this first piece, to just reintroduce characters and the stakes. To be honest, I was very fond of the Man of Steel trailer," Singer said. "I kind of wanted something similar to that."


Singer also offered some insides as to the new mutants featured in X-Men: Days Of Future Past with Bishop, Warpath, Sunspot and Blink.

"They are part of a younger surviving group of refugees in the future that have been living moment to moment just trying to stay alive," Singer offered. "We find them confronted with the last remaining X-Men who basically asks them to help them with this plan. They are kind of skeptical, but also realize there is no other choice."


Singer also gives the plot of the movie:

"The world has gone to hell. There is a program that got put into place that got out of control, and the world both for mutants and humans is in a very terrible state, and it's only going to get bleaker and bleaker," Singer said. "This mission, this adventure of X-Men: Days Of Future Past is one last and vicious attempt by the remaining X-Men that survived to try to correct the wrongs and challenges the notion whether history can be changed or whether history is destined to follow a path; whether you try to mess with it or not. Can you fight history?"
