Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert! We know who Wolverine has to stop in X-Men: Days of Future Past! Wait a second. Is it still a spoiler if the “villain” was revealed over 30 years ago? Seriously, the “villain” was revealed in Uncanny X-Men #141 and #142 from 1980. To find out who the “villain” is all you gotta go do is read the dang source material.
Wolverine goes back into the past to stop… Mystique. Boom, bamm, boing!
Here is another spoiler: in the comic, Wolverine was a Jewish chick.
Empire Magazine discloses:
[Wolverine’s] mission: to find Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), and recruit them to help him stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from doing something really stupid.
In the mag, Bryan Singer reveals a totally bad@$$ Magneto moment (totally bad@$$ Magneto moments are the main reasons I watch the X-flicks):
There’s a line that Fassbender says that may make it,” reveals Singer. “He says to Wolverine, ‘You spend the next 50 years trying to bring me down?’ Wolverine says, ‘Pretty much.’ Magneto says, ‘How did that go for you…?’
Oooooh, and Empire Magazine makes it clear that Wolverine will be a broke-down, old geezer in the new flick:
There’s the Logan we find in the post-apocalyptic ruins of 2023, grim, grey-streaked, struggling to stay alive—along with his fellow X-Men—in the face of an onslaught from giant mutant-hunting robots, the Sentinels.
Just to be clear, I fully support Mystique in her righteous battle for mutant rights. I believe that her actions did not cause the future mutant holocaust. The cause of the future mutant holocaust was that Mystique did not kill enough racist scumbags.
