‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Character Analysis & Discussion [Video]

Published 1 year ago by

With the video above we’re starting up what we hope is just the first of an awesome new Screen Rant feature: Custom-created videos where the SR Underground podcast team analyzes hot topics and cool events. We hope you like it and please let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

Outside of director Bryan Singer tweeting of behind-the-scenes photos from the production of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the marketing campaign behind Twentieth Century Fox’s second most expensive film of all-time didn’t gear up until this week. And they didn’t hold much back so we didn’t either in our new Screen Rant video feature!

Throughout Monday on an hourly basis, Empire released a large set of collectible covers, each serving as an official individual one-sheet for the heroes, villains and otherwise in X-Men: Days of Future Past. You can see all 25 of them here (along with two bonus fan-made images) in order, beginning with the characters of the past (1970s era) leading up to the post-apocalyptic future characters.

The reveals offered fans the first high-res look into not only the returning characters from the original X-Men trilogy and the First Class prequel, but a few new faces too, from a younger mutant Toad to first appearances of Bishop, Sunspot, Warpath and Blink. The big reveal at the end however, was the Sentinel design of the future – a nightmarish behemoth that surprised us all. Watch the video above as Screen Rant’s own Kofi Outlaw, Ben Kendrick and Anthony Ocasio join me in sharing our thoughts on the new imagery.

Let us know your thoughts on our new video feature and the X-Men reveals in the comments!

  7. Great post. Good job timing the video with the audio subject matter. Please do more!

  8. Well, toads are amphibians, not reptiles. So, Ray Park’s Toad was actually more realistic. For a toad to look reptilian, you want a lizard.
