X Men Days of Future Past Bishop Magneto Xavier Test X Men: Days of Future Past Posters & Images Offer First Look At Bishop

One of the major highlights of the film presentations at Comic-Con 2013 was Fox’s surprise panel for X-Men: Days of Future Past which included our very first look at unfinished footage from the next mutant team-up. Fox also setup a booth across the street from the San Diego Convention Center where they debuted a first look at the early Sentinel designs that will be featured in Days of Future Past, while handing out anti-mutant propaganda posters.

Adding to the viral posters, Fox also released the first two official one-sheets for the film alongside several character images, offering a look at Professor X and Magneto’s future armored costumes, and introducing Omar Sy’s time-travelling mutant known as Bishop.

The cards, posters and displays for the Trask Industries viral marketing setup at Comic-Con directed fans to the official X-Men Movies site, a tumbr blog where director Bryan Singer’s photos and imagery for the film is periodically released. The high-res posters were released there:

From the Days of Future Past footage we know a major element of the plot involves Ian McKellan’s older Magneto and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X sending Wolverine back in time to reunite younger Erik and Charles – who in the ’70s are both lost on dark “paths” – to save the future.

The website also unveiled some character images over the weekend, seemingly accidentally, since they were quickly removed. In additional the older mutant leaders, the images also feature Colossus, Wolverine and Bishop:

The Havok/Beast images look straight from First Class and either reveal that they suit up in the same retro blue and yellow uniforms again for a mission, or were simply part of the overall error in releasing the images early. Having seen the footage, the rest of them we can say are legitimately from the footage.

Bryan Singer directs X-Men: Days of Future Past with newcomers Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Boo Boo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Adan Canto, Josh Helman,  along with returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, and Daniel Cudmore. James Marsden may be involved if witness reports are true.

The Wolverine releases July 26, 2013, X-Men: Days of Future Past on May 23, 2014.

  1. Really gutsy move from Bryan Singer! A classic crossover! I think the scenario is to doomsday to be mediocre. It’s going to have a more darker and mature take than previous XMen movies. I was disappointed on the short cameo that Gambit made in the Wolverine movie and both him and Bishop have always been some of my favorites. Looks like Bishop is going to be a huge key player in Days of Future Past!

  2. where the hell is morph????
    not even mentioned in any of the movies.

    b******* fake x men that failed and can not hold true to the comics at all.

  3. Gambit should be in this in the comic and cartoon storyline gambit is the winess, a key player in the days of future past story arc.
