Some new promotional material has made its way online for Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. Apparently spotted in Lithuania, the new poster gives us a decent look at some of the outfits that we’ll be seeing in next year’s time-travel epic. It’s just a shame that the picture isn’t a bit bigger.
*UPDATE 16/12/2013 – Image taken down at the request of 20th Century Fox.
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.
