X-Men: Days of Future Past is about five months away, and to get you hyped up for the time-travel epic (a.k.a. Fox’s second biggest film ever), we’ve got a heap of new images for you, including our first look at Evan Peters as Quicksilver. Take a look!
Quicksilver’s punk look is a bit odd, but I like that they’re at least incorporating the color silver into his clothing. Judging from the picture, it looks like he’s helping Wolverine and Professor X spring Magneto from jail. I’m not sure what those particles in the air are, but considering that Quicksilver’s power is super speed, perhaps we’re seeing time slowed down for everyone else while he speeds in to rescue them. By the way, is anyone else as curious as I am at how Xavier is able to walk? Does it have anything to do with Beast reverting back to his human form sometime during the movie?
Nothing really to say about the second image since it’s probably from the same scene we saw in the trailer of Bishop walking forward. As for the third image, we know that Alex Summers, a.k.a. Havok, will be appearing as a soldier most likely in Vietnam. My question is what is Mystique doing at his base camp? You know, other than knocking out one guy and choking another.
Wait, there’s more! Entertainment Weekly has also posted an exclusive image featuring Wolverine and Beast in an…odd predicament.
Yeah, I really don’t know what to say about this other than AWKWARD. There really isn’t any clue why Beast is suspended in the air, although if I had to guess I’d say a Sentinel picked him up. It could also be Magneto lifting him up with his powers, but that would only work if Beast was wearing metal shoes or a metal ankle bracelet. Either way, let’s give Beast and Wolverine some privacy.
Finally, in the same article director Bryan Singer gave some clarification on what exactly this movie is in terms of a follow-up to the previous ones.
It’s not a reboot because there’s some of the same characters and same actors. But it’s also not a conventional sequel—I call it an inbetweequel.
Call it whatever you want, Bryan, but as long as you undo the events of The Last Stand and bring back Cyclops, I’ll be perfectly content.
