It’s been an exciting couple of weeks for all things in comic book film land, with the debut of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer along with the international release of Thor: The Dark World. Now Fox has released the first look at mega-sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past into the wild, combining all of the X-Men films under one Bryan Singer-shaped banner. Are we moist yet?
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent to the past in his own body, where he encounters a different Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), President Nixon, a secret door in the Oval Office and an encounter with Bishop (played by Omar Sy). The X-Men interquel will also star Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Shawn Ashmore, Evan Peters, Nicholas Hoult and Peter Dinklage.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for released on 22 May 2014 in Australia (and 23 May in the US) from Fox.
