Fox may have accidentally given away the plot of that X-Men sequel

Thanks to a title filing with the MPAA, 20th Century Fox may have just spilled some spoilery beans on where they're going with the X-Men First Class sequel—or perhaps a new X-Men film entirely.

The studio has filed the title Days of Future Past with the MPAA for an unidentified future project—and as any X-Men fan knows—that's also the title of a popular comic arc from 1981.

The two-issue arc delved into a dark potential future, where mutants are kept locked up in internment camps. Future Kitty Pryde sends her mind back to present-day Kitty Pryde, and the X-Men jump in to help prevent the anti-mutant future.

Considering the potential, this could work as a First Class sequel, or a way to reboot and continue the original X-Men film trilogy. Regardless, the story has awesome potential for the big screen.

Sound off: Do you think Fox is going with the alt-timeline story, or is this just one big coincidence?
