New Images From “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”

With the trailer due to hit next week, Empire have managed to get hold of seven new images from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Whilst there’s nothing massively spectacular, they are rather cool. Personally, I’m digging the Logan picture, and also the fact that we get a look at Bobby freakin’ Drake! I’m an Iceman fan, deal with it.

The Days of Future Past comic arc features an alternative future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels after a key senator was assassinated by a group of rogue mutants. Using time travel, the Kitty Pryde tries to warn the younger X-Men of what terror is to come so that they can stop the assassination and save the future. The film adaptation is going to have Wolverine be sent back in time by Kitty, mainly due to the audience’s love of Jackman’s Logan.

Forming quite the ensemble cast, the film sees James McAvoy as the younger Professor X, Patrick Stewart as the older Professor X, Michael Fassbender as the younger Magneto, Ian McKellen as the older Magneto, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Halle Berry as Storm, Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde, Anna Paquin as Rogue, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Daniel Cudmore as Colossus, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique. Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Omar Sy as Bishop, Fan Binbing as Blink, Lucas Till as Havok, Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask and Josh Helman as a young William Stryker. It also seems as if Booboo Stewart will be playing Warpath, with an as yet unconfirmed role for Adan Canto. There’s also strong reports that James Marsden will be returning as Cyclops.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on  23rd May, 2014.

    • Yeah, it’s got so much potential to go horribly wrong… but I’ve got a lot of faith in it. Yes, some plot points have been changed to better suit the cinematic X-world that has been created, but I just love the huge cast that’s involved. That could cause so many problems, though, but I’m remaining very, very positive for this. It could be one hugely fantastic geek out.
