Bryan Singer - what a man to follow on Twitter. It's keeping tabs of creatives like this that best demonstrates the benefits of social media; with Twitter, he can deliver news direct from his movies straight in to our hungry paws.

Excited for X-Men: Days of Future Past? Us too. Just last night, director Singer tweeted a behind the scenes photo that's sure to set fan boy tongues wagging.

Along with the caption "Hello old friends #XMen #DaysofFuturePast", Singer tweeted what appears to be the wheelchairs of both the young Professor X (James McAvoy) and the old Professor X (Patrick Stewart), which the folk at Total Film reckon is a fairly blatant tease at a cross-generational meet-up between McAvoy and Stewart in X-Men Days of Futures Past.

Boasting one of the finest casts a movie has seen in donkeys, Singer's flick will feature Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and the most recently added to line-up - Peter Dinklage.
