X-Men: Days of Future Past to take place during Vietnam War?

X-Men: First Class was set in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis. According to Casting Quarters X-Men: Days of Future Past will take place in 1973 (disco music, anyone?). In the comic book story arc that the movie is based off of, Kitty Pryde is sent back in time to prevent an assassination from happening to prevent a terrible future for mutants.

Director Matthew Vaughn originally wanted to have the plot revolve around the Kennedy assassination, but looks like it’s out of the question with the new setting. So what’s so important about the year? It was the year that U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War ended. First Class already had the Cold War setting, so Days of Future Past may have a Vietnam War setting.
