Oh, Marvel Universe, you are truly spoiling us… Today has already brought the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Marvel’s own studio and now, via 20th Century Fox comes a sneak peek at the promo for X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
All right, so it’s yet another quick tease, brought this time via the techno-wizardry of Instagram. And, if we had our druthers, we’d be seeing the whole thing in one go. But it’s a nice little sample packed with glimpses of many of the main cast.
Days Of Future Past, lest we forget, finds Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and some of the current X-team confronting a dark alternate future where mutants are an endangered species, tracked down, imprisoned or killed thanks to Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage)’s Sentinel program and an overwhelming level of distrust aimed at them from regular humans.
They boldly plan to send Wolverine’s consciousness back in time to the First Class era (or a few years after we last met those versions of the characters) to convince the younger Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the rest to work together to stop the threat at its source.
The full trailer is set for release next Tuesday, and Bryan Singer is hosting a Twitter chat via his username (@bryansinger) and the film’s official Twitter handle (@xmenmovies) on Monday 28 at 5:30pm GMT to discuss that and anything else people want to ask him. X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens on May 22 next year.
