X-Men: Days Of Future Past Reveals Magneto's New Costume
Fassbender's metal manipulator in action

07 November 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: Superhero Hype

20th Century Fox has released a new X-Men: Days Of Future Past pic showing Michael Fassbender's Magneto, circa 1970, in a suit that's evolving as fast as his mean streak. Spotter's badge to Superhero Hype for digging this one up and giving another glimpse of the stylish maroon threads we know and love. But where's the helmet?

Days Of Future Past finds Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and 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.


X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens on May 22. In the meantime, head here for the trailer and here for a trailer breakdown so comprehensive it's like Bryan Singer himself wrote it. Which he sorta did.

bit mean
Singers first two films are clearly the best in the series. Vaughans had some great elements but felt a bit superficial, made very little sense continuity wise and looked a bit cheap in comparison. More

RE: Oh No! Not again again
I have to agree, this looks pathetic. Why does Brian Singer insist on making everything in these films as underwhelming and derivative as humanly possible? Is it some kind of subliminal statement on how bored he is with the genre? Every new piece of info and imagery from this film makes it seems more and more like just another stagnant X-Men film, (in the tradition of the first 6 in the franchise). I'm bored already. More

Oh No! Not again again
Well, Singer has clearly bottled it. The Magneto costume at the end of first class was great to see. So now we get the usual X men films generic costume style. Nothing to really distinguish one character from another so that they don't really look like X men. It would have been better to go with the simpler design from Kirby's original comics if we are going to have an X-Men "uniform". Iv'e just been over to Entertainment weekly to see the full costume and it is absolutely terrible. Cl More

Pop over to entertainment weekly they have a picket of him hovering and in the helmet - I must say looks better than that badly fitting suit he wore at the end of first class, but I guess it's 10years latter More
