A comic book legend and an infamous commander-in-chief appear in the latest Twitter teases from directors Marc Webb and Bryan Singer on their respective upcoming Marvel-based films, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
On Monday, Webb tweeted a photo of Spider-Man co-creator and frequent cameo performer Stan Lee on the set of the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, sitting in a crowd during presumably, based on a tweet from the previous day, Peter Parker's graduation.
It's already been revealed that X-Men: Days of Future Past takes place at least partly in 1973, so it makes sense that Richard Nixon would be involved. Based on a Singer tweet from Monday, he'll be played by an undetermined actor in the film, as seen in a photo captioned "Pivotal meeting."
Touching more on historical events, the Vietnam war looks to play a role in Days of Future Past, with Singer on Tuesday tweeting a photo of an assembled crowd with Vietnamese flags, along with the caption "GOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!"
Sony's Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for release on May 2, 2014; Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past hits a little more than two months later, on July 18.
