New X-Men Picture Online
Days Of Wolverine Past, anyone?

With the movie's marketing yet to kick into overdrive, Bryan Singer's Twitter feed is steadfastly keeping us in X-Men: Days Of Future Past goodies. It's already offered a first look at Wolvie and Halle Berry's Storm, and now @BryanSinger is back with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Hank McCoy and Logan - Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Jackman - with their '70s threads on, like a badass Hall & Oates.

The stakes are high for our mutant pals in Days Of Future Past. The future, stalked by mutant-killing Sentinels and filled with brutal detention camps, must be averted by the 1970s X-Men, with a link between the two provided by some sort of time travel. In the comics it's Kitty Pryde who mentally trips back to her younger self; if we were guessing, we reckon it could be Prof X who carries the warning this time.

If shepherding all this string theory and multiverse complexity onto the big screen sounds like herding Schrödinger cats, the director and his writing team have it under control. As Singer told Empire, the key is "to create your rules and stick with them. That's why Terminator and Back To The Future work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible."

On board is a huge X-cast, including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy and Daniel Cudmore. Days Of Future Past is well underway and will be out on July 17 next year.

RE: Feeling blue
My guess, is that after First Class, there has been some mutant hating going on and to fit in Beast and found away to suppress/hide his beast form - as Signer has already posted a tease to the Big Blue Man he wont stay this way for long. But I'm with everyone else - why is Logan in the 70's, he refused in First Class and in X-men (the original) he had no memory of the X-Mansion (unless he losses his memory after , since Fox have dismissed Wolverine:Origins all together which is a good good si More

Feeling blue
If this film is set after (and way after) X-Men first class, shouldn't Hank be blue and a bit more hirsute? More
