While James Mangold’s The Wolverine is ramping up the publicity for its release this summer, principal photography for X-Men: Days of Future Past is just getting started. And though official publicity for that project won’t begin for quite some time, director Bryan Singer has already released a number of revealing images via Twitter.

Indeed, since pre-production began, Singer has tweeted glimpses of everything from Nicholas Hoult in the new Beast makeup to Patrick Stewart as Professor X to Halle Berry in her new Storm outfit (among other things). Now he’s at it again, having recently tweeted the first image of Wolverine on the Days of Future Past set.

Yes, well…it’s a picture of the back of Wolverine’s head, all right.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t discern anything from it. The most obvious point of interest here is that, between The Wolverine and Days of Future Past, Wolverine has grown his hair out in an effort to resemble the style he was sporting in the first few X-Men films. In The Wolverine, he sports a shorter, less wildman-looking variant, probably to go along with his new affinity for business attire.

The other point of interest is the leather jacket, which doesn’t much resemble the one he wore in previous films – or, for that matter, the one he wore in the Days of Future Past comic book storyline (with the fur collar). Which is too bad, because that was a truly excellent jacket.

Other than that, there’s not much to report about the image. It seems to confirm – as did the Professor X and Storm images before it – that the “future” in Days of Future Past will actually be our present (unlike the DOFP comic book arc, which took place in the present and the distant apocalyptic future). Of course, there’s nothing to say that this film can’t take place in the 1970s, the present, and in some distant future, sort of like a superhero version of Back to the Future 2.

And now that I’ve written those words down, that actually sounds like a really awesome movie. Perhaps Bryan Singer could even throw in an alternate timeline where Wolverine’s mom marries Biff Tannen Sabretooth, who, thanks to a sports almanac from the future, managed to become one of the most powerful men in America.

What’re your thoughts, Screen Ranters? Do you like the look of Wolverine in Days of Future Past (or at least what we can see of it)? Are you bummed that there’s no fur collar on Wolverine’s leather jacket? Drop us a line in the comments.


The Wolverine hits theaters July 26th, 2013, X-Men: Days of Future Past on July 18th, 2014, and Fantastic Four on March 6th, 2015.

  1. Hard to tell from the picture showing the back of Logan’s head, but im sure Bryan Singer will do a good adaptation of days of future past. 1st class (which should have been called X-Men origins: Magneto) was a good movie.

    • That would have been a terrible terrible horrible title. First Class was a perfect title.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this info. I love the X-Men…I love Wolverine…and I love the Back To The Future joke/reference even more. :)

  3. i just hope the alternative future produces a better rogue.
    by which i mean the flying super stregth near invincible uncanny x-men rogue

    • If they do, then they will need to introduce Ms. Marvel for continuity…

    • one can dream though.but as long as FOX has the Xmen film license by the nuts,there won’t be any strong female characters or Cyclops leading the xmen team.mystique is the only woman in the xmen movies I could point out that’s strong.but the rest,those who are known for their complex personalities were quickly scrapped by bryan singer,it seems he has something against powerful women(super strength or not)in film.Marvel Comics/Entertainment has proven that they can hold their own,and respect the integrity of their characters FAR more than anything FOX can do with the xmen…

  4. Singer killed Scott Summers and Jean Grey… and seriously screwed up the Dark Phoenix Saga… I don’t think I can honestly trust him to play with the X-Men anymore. Between that, and giving Superman a son… I honestly don’t think he knows how to build a story from the source material.

    He doesn’t respect the comics nor the fans. If you want a great comic movie, contract Joss Whedon, Grant Morrison, and Neil Gaiman. These guys know how to tell stories. And tell them well.

    • Singer did not kill Cyclops and Jean Grey it was Britt Rantner the guy who did the Rush Hour movies made X3 The Last Stand and Byrian Singer only made X-Men and X2

      • Dont care but all the X men movies sucked and the Wolverine movie.

  5. that comic art on top is rather poor, no offense to the artist, but that bottom comic image from xmen 141 – hellllloooooo John Byrne! :)

    • You know it! If you don’t have a copy of 141 & 142 now, better hurry! Won’t be able to find them next summer!

  6. I think it’s stupid for nerds to b**ch about how it’s not like the comics, blah blah blah. If they did a movie exactly like the comics, then what is the purpose? Dont like the movies? Then dont watch them. I think they are great movies and Singer did a great job with his movies (although yeah the 3rd one and origins sucked because of poor direction from the other loser directors). Get over it and get a life (since girlfriends are clearly out of your reach).

    • It’s not a matter of wanting the stories to follow the comic story lines completely, it’s the changing of characters. Changing their motives, abilities, personalities to the point they are unrecognizable. My wife and I both share this opinion.

  7. I actually have a jacket like the one in the comics with the fur collar but its not leather. It’s denim. The funny thing is the brand is WOLVERINE.

  8. so basically I’ll sum it up. I would like to watch these movies but hollywood has turned them into something they were never meant to be, a metaphor for gays fighting discrimination.

    Therefore I spit on any xmen movie made by these people.

    Furthermore the fact that they chose Xmen as a brand to use to push the gay agenda tells me a lot about how truly ill of mind these people are.

    You can go watch your gay agenda pushing tripe. I will watch something else that is just as entertaining but has no hidden agendas in it.

    • Raging Homophobe Alert!!!

      • +1

    • No hidden agenda, it’s straight up what it’s about. It’s what it’s always been about. The comics too. It’s gay persecution, racial persecution, religious persecution…just about everything. You’re too narrow minded and likely conservative to think about it however. If mutants were real you would likely be against the “mutant agenda” as well. Goes to show the movies did a good job equating it to people like you.

  9. I have seen multiple Pictures frome this upcoming movie and in some of them Wolverine has grey hair can any one explain why if he has a healing factor and he does not age
