Empire And EntertainmentWeekly (via i09) have posted the first official stills from Bryan Singer’s X-Men Days of Future Past. Which comes ahead of next week’s trailer. Giving us more of an idea of what’s in store for audiences come May 2014. We see a futuristic Professor X rocking a hover-chair and Logan recovering after being hammered with bullets. Raven is seen in both mutant and human form. Also, the young Professor X is walking around. It will interesting to see how they explain that one. After mutants are hunted and flagged as enemies of humanity in the future. Wolverine with the aid of some powerful mutants, has his consciousness sent back in time to his younger self. Logan is given the mission to stop an event that would place all mutant life in jeopardy. Which leads to the formation of the Sentinel program that is created by Trask Industries. The film places together the surviving mutants from X3: The Last Stand alongside the prequel lineup from X-Men First Class. It also includes new mutant additions such as Bishop, Blink, Warpath and Sunspot.
It’ll be interesting to see if we get a tame teaser that holds back all the exciting Sentinel action sequences. Or something more like what we’ve been getting from Marvel Studios in the way of at least one or two huge action shots being revealed. My hope is to see Peter Dinklage scream as Trask “release the Sentinels!” at one point in the trailer. That remains to be seen along with possible connections to Jeff Wadlow’s X-Force film. The impressively large cast includes Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page and Booboo Stewart. Stay tuned as the full trailer will be released this Tuesday!
