All 25 ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Character Covers Right Here

Published 9 months ago by , Updated February 18th, 2014 at 12:45 pm, This is a list post.

Empire X-Men Days of Future Past Covers It's been relatively quiet on the marketing front for Twentieth Century Fox's second most expensive film production of all-time, the biggest budget superhero epic ever, X-Men: Days of Future Past. That's finally beginning to change with a teaser trailer last week and the the studio finally releasing first-look official images of most of the characters in the in the film. Seemingly every few weeks we learn of a new character making at least a cameo appearance in Days of Future Past and today Empire Magazine has 25 collector covers, revealing some of characters from X-Men comics we've only heard. As Empire releases them, we'll keep adding them so stay tuned throughout the day to meet the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past. [Watch our video discussion & analysis here!]

Sentinel Mark I

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 1 Sentinel Thumbnail In the alternate timeline version of the '70s, Bolivar Trask received the government greenlight to begin producing anti-mutant security forces in the form of these towering robots known as Sentinels. The image depicts the Mark I variant and over the years there are other, larger versions. We've yet to see the massive Mark X Sentinels from the post-apocalyptic future.
  • The first Sentinels (Mark I model) released in 1973. A year later the government allowed them to be deployed in highly populated cities and to serve as part of the President’s security attache (beginning with Nixon).
  • Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produced 8732 Sentinel Mark Is for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom.
  • Production on the Mark I has shifted to the new Mark X: “These highly anticipated units will combine next-generation nanotechnology and bioweapon breakthroughs, promising an even brighter future for the human race.”

Havok

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 2 Havok Thumbnail Absorbs "Cosmic Energy" and releases it in plasma blasts. At first it was unclear that Lucas Till would return as Alex Summers in the X-Men: First Class followup but set photos and an official photo of him in uniform serving during Vietnam proved otherwise, giving fans hope that the film franchise may still have some love to share for the underutilized Summers family. Due to the timeline alterations, the film franchise's take on Alex and Scott Summers (Cyclops) seems to position Alex as a potential father of Scott instead of his brother. Note the bands of energy around him. Will Havok sport an X-Men universe so he can control his energy blasts? Will James Marsden make that rumored cameo appearance as Cyclops? Click HERE for full-size cover.

Toad

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 3 Toad Thumbnail Super-strong legs, prehensile tongue, gross paralyzing mucus. Toad was a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants in Bryan Singer's original X-Men (2000) where he was played by Ray Park. We learned only recently that a younger version of Toad appears in X-Men: Days of Future Past thanks to the actor playing him, Evan Jonigkeit. At the time, Jonigkeit would only say that the following about the younger version of the character: "The aesthetics of the character are much different, and I’m not really allowed to say a whole lot more than that. It's darker. I would say it’s a darker tone." Click HERE for full-size cover.

Stryker

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 4 Stryker Thumbnail Mutant-hater, military man, nut job. William Stryker is a key player in the anti-mutant movement and the X-Men films. He first appeared in the first X-Men sequel played by Brian Cox where it was revealed that he was responsible for what happened to Wolverine (adamantium skeleton, memory loss) and so a younger version of him played by Danny Huston showed up again in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Josh Helman plays an even younger Stryker in the '70s, a member of the military. Will Stryker's mutant son play into his role in Days of Future Past? Click HERE for full-size cover.

Bolivar Trask

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 5 Bolivar Trask Thumbnail Robotics genius, mutant-hater, smooth political operator. If you've been following the development and viral marketing for X-Men: Days of Future Past, you will be familiar with Trask Industries, the leaders in anti-mutant tech invention and deployment. Trask created the X-Gene Inhibitor Collar which when worn stops mutants from being able to use their abilities, the mutant detection devices and most notably, the Sentinel program which launched in 1973 for President Nixon. All of these innovations come from the genius mind of Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage and his mustache. "The mutant threat is the defining issue of our time. We can choose to stem the impending tide of extinction or we can stand by passively and allow it to wash away any remnants of our species." – Bolivar Trask - 1973   Click HERE for full-size cover.

Mystique

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 6 Mystique Thumbnail Shapeshifter. The blue-skinned mutant began her journey as an adopted sibling of Charles Xavier but switched sides and joined Michael Fassbender's young Magneto by the end of X-Men: First Class as she learns to accept who she is and refuse to hide her identity. In the original X-Men trilogy, Mystique (played by Rebecca Romijn) is also a loyal right hand to Magneto but in Days of Future Past the '70s era Mystique (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is on a mission of her own which may threaten the future of the planet. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Beast

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 7 Beast Thumbnail Superhuman strength, agility, speed and furriness. It took three films to finally introduce the original X-Men team member Beast to moviegoers and he arguably was the best part of X-Men: The Last Stand, played by Kelsey Grammer. In X-Men: First Class, young Nicholas Hoult played the younger, continuity-breaking version of the character known as Hank McCoy and the images so far have revealed him as the blue furry genius and his human-looking self. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Quicksilver

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 8 Quicksilver Thumbnail Runs at supersonic speeds. The fastest of all mutants and a child of Magneto, Quicksilver makes his curious debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past, played by Evan Peters. The timing of Quicksilver's introduction is as odd as his costume and the fact that his sister, Scarlet Witch, is not present. We know that Bryan Singer chose to intro the character for a specific, unique action sequence. Of course, Quicksilver (and Scarlet Witch) will also appear in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, to be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, respectively. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Magneto

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 9 Magneto Thumbnail The Master of Magnetism. Magneto almost got his own Origins movie just like Wolverine but the script was canned and the story of his youth folded into the story of X-Men: First Class. Michael Fassbender stole the show however, and proved just how awesome a Magneto spinoff would have been. Luckily he returns for Days of Future Past as the prime suspect for the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Present-day Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) teams with present day Professor X to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to the past on a mission to reunite Fassbender's Magneto with James McAvoy's younger Charles Xavier - all in order to save the future. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Professor X

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 10 Professor X Thumbnail The world's most powerful telepath. James McAvoy played a young Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class and by the end of the story takes a bullet in the back which restrict him to a wheelchair. Thing is, we've seen McAvoy both in and out of that very chair in several images for the followup Days of Future Past. Does he make a miraculous recovery or are their two different timelines, one where he never took that shot? In the timeline where he is without use of his legs and without much hope for the future, Wolverine must convince him to not give up and to get back on the 'right' path in saving mutantkind. Sir Patrick Stewart also returns as the older, present-day/near-future version of Charles Xavier where he's again in the wheelchair - one that floats! Click HERE for full-size cover.

Wolverine

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 11 Wolverine Thumbnail Accelerated healing, enhanced senses, retractable bone claws. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine is the poster boy for the X-Men franchise and the only character to get not one, but two solo movies (with a third in the works). Hollywood's nice guy returns yet again for another starring role in Days of Future Past where his mind is sent back in time to his '70s self on a mission to reunite Professor X and Magneto. Wolverine lost his adamantium claws at the end of The Wolverine but we've seen images of future-him with said blades and in the past with bone claws in Days of Future Past, lending credence to our theory that another timeline is launched where the event of The Wolverine didn't take place and he kept the sharper blades. How that timeline ties into the mid-credits button at the end of The Wolverine is anyone's guess. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Bryan Singer

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 12 Bryan Singer Thumbnail Puppet master, franchise creator, director. Director Bryan Singer makes a surprise appearance getting an Empire cover of his own. Singer began the X-Men film franchise in 2000 and directed its first sequel, before jumping ship to direct Superman Returns. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner brought him back for X-Men: First Class before he had to pass the directorial reins to Matthew Vaughn but he produced and is now directing its followup Days of Future Past. Singer, with the help of Simon Kinberg and X2 writers  Dan Harris and Mike Dougherty are already working away on the next followup, currently dubbed X-Men: Apocalypse. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Future Wolverine

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 13 Future Wolverine Thumbnail Accelerated healing, enhanced senses, adamantium-laced skeleton, retractable adamantium claws. Always a loyal soldier, Wolverine is as essential as ever in the fight for mutantkind in the post-apocalyptic Earth. Thanks to the convenience of using time-travel as a plot device, this version of Wolverine in the future still wields his deadly adamantium claws. Note the armored costume design, no doubt designed to fend off the laser blasts from enemy Sentinel robots. The costume colors and designs could hint at Wolverine's costume in X-Force, should that film be made with Hugh Jackman. In Bryan Singer's adaptation of the Days of Future Past story, Wolverine - with the help of Kitty Pryde - must have his mind sent back to his younger, pre-admantium-augmented self to prevent a political catastrophe from occurring before the planet is doomed. Meanwhile, the rest of the future mutants must seemingly protect Wolverine's body in the future. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Future Professor X

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 14 Future Professor X Thumbnail Still the world's most powerful telepath. Patrick Stewart returns once again for X-Men: Days of Future Past and this time it's more than a cameo (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine). Older Charles Xavier, still alive and still confined to a wheel hoverchair in whatever timeline the future portion of the film takes place in, must work with the surviving mutants of the future on a last-ditch effort to save the world and mutantkind by altering history. Note the futuristic ship floating in the background. Does it belong to the X-Men or is it a carrier for Sentinel units? Or something else entirely? Click HERE for full-size cover.

Future Magneto

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 15 Future Magneto Thumbnail Still the master of magnetism. At the conclusion of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), Ian McKellen's Magneto had lost his powers at the hands of the X-Men during their battle at Alcatraz but there was a hint of his powers returning at the very end. In the future, Magneto either regains his powers or in this other potential timeline, he never lost them in the first place. Either way, Magneto must team-up with Professor X and the remaining mutant heroes on a mission to alter the past and right some wrongs to salvage the future of the world and mutantkind. Future Magneto still sports his iconic cloak, but with a new armored costume. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Storm

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 16 Storm Thumbnail Mastery over the elements. Storm, much like James Marsden's Cyclops, didn't really get a chance to shine as a noble and powerful leader of the X-Men or live up to her badass mantle she holds strongly in Marvel Comics. Still, the original X-Men film helped propel Halle Berry's career much like it did for Hugh Jackman and in the sequels Storm's screen time increased as her hairstyle evolved. Although pregnant during the shooting of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Singer still managed to give the always-loyal Storm character a place on the team and at least one sequence of her using her powers. No action sequences and flight scenes, though. The photoshopped cover comes from one of the first on-set photos Bryan Singer tweeted out while shooting the film and you can compare here. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Rogue

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 17 Rogue Thumbnail Absorbs the mutant abilities of anyone she touches. Considering that the character of Rogue (Anna Paquin) was cut from the theatrical version of X-Men: Days of Future Past, we're surprised the underutilized character even got her own Empire Cover. Her face expression certainly matches Paquin's feelings on being left out of the action in the entire X-Men trilogy. Being cut from this movie doesn't help. Rogue is close friends with Wolverine and held a romantic relationship with Iceman through the first three X-films. In the comics Rogue permanently absorbed the abilities of fight and super strength making her one of the X-Men's most formidable and brave combatants. These traits, or her on-and-off-again relationship with Gambit were never realized on screen. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Warpath

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 18 Warpath Thumbnail Super-strong, near-invulnerable, and he can fly. Over the last half a decade, James "Warpath" Proudstar has grown to be a crucial member in Marvel Comics, most notably as a member of Wolverine's black ops X-Force team. Warpath is of Native American descent and is the brother of one of the first international X-Men members, Thunderbird. Warpath however, is far more powerful than his deceased brother and is known for being practically unstoppable in hand-to-hand combat. X-Men: Days of Future Past represents the first time Warpath appears onscreen and he keeps his iconic eye mask (in this instance, it's painted on) and his signature blades. He appears in the post-apocalyptic future portion of the film with his pals Blink and Sunspot. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Kitty Pryde

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 19 Kitty Pryde Thumbnail Phases through solid objects. Kitty Pryde, who at once time went by the codename Shadowcat in the comics, appeared in a cameo capacity in the first two X-Men films before Ellen Page took over the role in X-Men: The Last Stand where she earned a spot on Xavier's core team. A love interest of fellow X-Men Colossus in the books, in the film universe she shares a close connection with Iceman. Kitty possesses the ability to phase through objects and with it she can fry electrical circuits, which may come in handy when battling Sentinels. In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kitty plays a key role in sending the mind of Wolverine through time into his younger self. There's another one of those ships in the background. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Sunspot

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 20 Sunspot Thumbnail Solar-powered super-strength and near invulnerability. Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot became a member of the New Mutants, learning under the teachings of Professor X, after he became a target of anti-mutant characters from the Marvel Comics. He later became a member of the early X-Force team. Similar to his ally in arms Warpath, Sunspot is a powerful mutant who can take as much damage as he can dish out as he harnesses the power of the sun. In the comics he can fly and when using his mutant abilities he appears as if he's a black hole as he absorbs and re-channels light. Days of Future Past marks the first appearance of the character in the films. Note the burn marks on Sunspot's cheek in the high-res image. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Blink

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 21 Blink Thumbnail Teleporter. Blink is a mutant capable of teleportation, although unlike Nightcrawler from X-Men 2 she creates portals that anyone can travel through. In Marvel Comics, Blink is a relative newcomer, first introduced in the mid-'90s but quickly killed off before returning in Age of Apocalypse. That fact makes her a likely candidate to return for X-Men: Apocalypse in May 2016. In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Blink is a future mutant who fights alongside Warpath (who can be seen through the portal) and Sunspot. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Iceman

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 22 Iceman Thumbnail Creates and manipulates ice. Bobby Drake aka Iceman played a prominent role throughout the X-Men trilogy and was the love interest of Rogue - and for a little bit, Kitty Pryde. He was a youngster then, only taking his armored ice form once at the end of The Last Stand. In Days of Future Past, Iceman is a battle-proven veteran X-Men soldier who's mastered his powerful abilities. With the cover shot featuring Bobby blasting ice down to the ground, we can only hope that we see an action sequence with him finally creating an ice slide as he battles Sentinels. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Bishop

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 23 Bishop Thumbnail Absorbs energy to redirect it in kinetic blasts. To Lucas Bishop, Professor Charles Xavier and the X-Men are legends. He's from the future where most mutants are refugees and held in camps, branded with an "M" on their face. In Marvel Comics, Bishop has been involved in most major time-travel stories, including the Age of Apocalypse, so it's likely that he's a key player in the main plot of Days of Future Past, sent back in time with a warning or on a mission to protect or assassinate someone. Bishop's mutant abilities in the comics allow him to absorb energy in all forms and redirect it, making him a formidable opponent against mutants with offensive powers and energy weapons from Sentinels. Bishop's primary weapons however, consist of futuristic weapons. French actor Omar Sy plays Bishop for his onscreen introduction and he had a brief appearance in the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer/Comic-Con footage and has otherwise been revealed in leaked imagery. Note the glowing red eyes - could his mutant power have something to do with this TRON-inspired gun? Click HERE for full-size cover.

Colossus

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 24 Colossus Thumbnail Transforms his skin in to "organic steel." The physically intimidating Russian X-Man who's missing his Russian accent in the films at least retained one key character attribute - a heart of gold. Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) has always been a loyal X-Men member and in the comics was a love interest of Kitty Pryde. We don't know if that translates to the Days of Future Past with Iceman involved, but we do know Colossus will be going head-to-head with the Mark X Sentinels of the future. The character first appeared in X-Men 2 and returned with significantly more screen time (but not much more dialogue) in X-Men: The Last Stand. Colossus' mutant ability allows him to transform his skin into metal where he's as durable as he is strong - the perfect bodyguard. Click HERE for full-size cover.

Sentinel Mark X

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 25 Future Sentinel Thumbnail Super-powerful mutant-hunting robot. The most exciting reveal is finally here! After a slow process of individually releasing 25 covers, Empire has the one we've all been waiting for: the Sentinels of the future! Dubbed the Mark X, the much larger and more dangerous combat robot was designed by Trask Industries to track, capture and/or destroy mutants. It is because of Trask and the Sentinels that the world is in ruin, and why the X-Men must sacrifice everything to alter the course of history and prevent these machines from ever being deployed. The Sentinel program was first teased briefly in X-Men: The Last Stand when Colossus and Wolverine team-up to take one down in the Danger Room training center, but all we ever saw was its head rolling to the ground after Wolverine did his work. Now we finally get to see the machine in its full design - except this one's totally different, embracing more of an organic metal feel. Share your thoughts in the comments! Click HERE for full-size cover.

Deadpool (Bonus)

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 26 Deadpool Thumbnail The Merc With A Mouth? That's crazy! No, you're crazy... Who said that? This one's a fan-made bonus, crafted by Tim Daniel at the request of Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld on Twitter. As much as Liefeld and fans may want Deadpool to show up in Days of Future Past, chances are we'll all be waiting until Jeff Wadlow's X-Force screenplay is greenlit by Fox before such a thing could happen - and that would hopefully lead to the long-awaited Deadpool spinoff solo film. That being said, Deadpool's connection with the time-travelling mutant known as Cable make the possibility that much more real, especially if the next X-Men film after Days of Future Past is all about Apocalypse. Click HERE for full-size FAKE cover.

Gambit (Bonus)

X-Men Days of Future Past Empire Cover 27 Gambit Thumbnail The Ragin' Cajun! This fan-made cover was sent in from our pal Caleb and features Taylor Kitch's Remy LeBeau as depicted in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Another fan-fave mutant from the comics, the film universe's version of the character gave Gambit his iconic cards, fighting staff and kinetic energy powers but missed out on his most recognizable trait - his Cajun accent. We'd love to one day see another version of Gambit appear as a member of the X-Men team, as much as we'd love to see Colossus with a Russian accent. Click HERE for full-size FAKE cover.

Stay Tuned For More!

Empire X-Men Days of Future Past Covers Stay tuned for the other covers as they release throughout the day! So far we've only met characters from the '70s but there are plenty more to come!

  1. To be frank, I’m still NOT convinced about this movie, in fact the more I think of it, the more likely it will ruin the continuity of the previous movies. Cause let’s face it, whatever happens here has the chance to alter everything in the first trilogy, NOT just “The Last Stand”. I’m fairly certain this movie will end up becoming a target for nitpickers to dig out inconsistencies with the rest of X-Men movies. But hey, at least people will definitely be talking about this (good or… bad)

    As for the covers though, I’m having fun collecting them just like when I was a kid collecting collectibles, so even when I’m still unsure about watching this, these posters are still SWEET! hahaha. So far, the best one for me is Blink’s, and I can’t wait for the rest of the ‘future’ characters (meaning the X-Force one). I only hope they showed Iceman and Collosus in their mutant form though, I mean all covered in Steel and Ice and not looking human as… ALWAYS XD. As for the worst one so far… well IMHO, Quicksilver’s and Toad’s and I’m speaking this character design-wise.

    • Yeah this film is gonna rewrite the entire continuity of the films timeline. I mean that is rule with time traveling movies, I hope that the film ends with every character in their classic uniforms, or at least the modernized versions that theyre wearing in marvel now. And yeah quicksilver and toad look terrible. lol

    • Quicksilver looks a bit too ‘flamboyant’ for my liking.

      • Why the quotes?

  2. Am i the only one concerned that that technician is checking out that sentinels junk? Poor thing must feel violated…..#RobotRights!!!!

  3. For the last time:

    This movie is made by the same studio and same execs that made the first three plus XO:Wolverine. I am not holding my breath that this movie will be any good. First Class and The Wolverine were pretty good. The hit and miss ratio for this franchise is 2:1. X1, X2, FC, and TW were good. X3 and XO:W were duds. We’re due for a flop. :(

    And if the rumors about Apocalypse turn out to be true, then whatever follows DOFP will be a waste of time. It’ll be a ***-wiping with the source material worse than Iron Man 3.

    • 75% of the ones you say are good were helmed by Brian singer, none of the ones you say are bad had his involvement.

  4. Can someone PLEASE tell James Mcavoy to stop doing that stupid thing where he touches his temple every single time he uses his powers? He looks like Mentok the Mind Taker

  5. I feel like this movie is going to be very confusing

  6. I’ll call it now….even though Whedon has got to alter the backstory of Quicksilver, they will still manage a better take on the character than Singer.

  7. Does anybody else remember the Sentinel head that Wolverine cut off in the simulation from X3? I like that one better, well atleast the head since they didn’t show the rest of it.

    • That design still might show up. The Mark I is the old school ’70s Sentinel.

  8. Professor X has a headache.

  9. I miiight just go and see this even with my disdain for Fox and their previous handlement of the X franchise…

  10. They’re using Stryker again? Wasn’t he an old man in first class? (ya Xavier read his mind and he was thinking about his child) Now he is younger 10 years into the future? They better be trying to tie it in to X-Men origins or something… On my count thats now 4 different actors that have portrayed Stryker, WTF? why? NO ONE LIKES THIS b******* CHARACTER!

    • That was his father in First Class

    • Or, you know, this one is the son of the Colonel Stryker from First Class. Instead of nonsensically thinking he got “younger 10 years into the future”, logically his son has the ability to age over ten years and take up a position similar to his father.

      Just putting that out there.

      • My bad, sorry I had checked imdb and it has the guy in the room (Colonel Stryker) was listed as William Stryker, just rewatched the scene and Xavier references his son William, so my misremembering on that… I started to get really frustrated when I thought they were inserting the same character into the movie at the wrong time…

        • They listed his name as William Stryker because they are both named William, one is senior and the other W. Stryker Jr.

        • Adding Stryker Senior was just another unneeded Easter Egg that helps add to the confusion about some points in this series. There is still a big question as to how Stryker is an older Danny Houston in Origins, but is now this younger guy. And the whole Origins isn’t cannon argument because this character seems to young to even match up with how old Brian Cox was in X-2.

    • I’m pretty sure that was William Strykers father Xavier read in first class.

      • Correct. Hence Xavier´s line: “I could ask you about your son William. Or the missiles you´re placing in Turkey.”

  11. Somehow, Quicksilver looks like The Spleen from Mystery Men.

    • That’s hilarious.

    • Nailed it! Quicksilver, Warpath and Iceman with his cut-off sleeves look so 90′s superhero movie.

    • The Spleen, for anyone who wants to see the reference.

      http://s27.postimg.org/g44yddq0z/Spleen_1.jpg

  12. Geez…if Fox and Sony would just quit their posturing and work together with Marvel (you know they’ve tried) all these films could flow together in one big, awesome shared universe, if done properly, of course.
    And imagine all the MONEY they would make from it, since that’s clearly the only language they speak.

    • Probably a buck load of money, but Disney/Marvel has to split the money to Sony and Fox. I think it could work, though as of now I don’t see it happening.

  13. Why does Bryan Singer have a cover LOL?!?! What happened to the days where filmmakers were a little more modest. Singer has made more appearances and had more interviews about this movie than the cast. Attention whore! lol

    • A little jelly there? Singer is behind the biggest superhero film of all time and has been credited along with Sam Raimi with kickstarting the superhero film explosion. I say he deserves the attention.

      • Singer has sucked directing every superhero film! Superman was his biggest fail and X2 his best attempt… Sad for the Xmen franchise…

        • X2 is as good as or better than anything else superhero. Hate him? Fine, but try to have a little perspective, maybe.

          • I take it you’ve never seen X2 then since you say it was one of the best superhero movies of all time?

      • @Jrm

        Singer is behind the biggest superhero film of all time?

        I didn’t know he directed Iron Man 3. Who knew? Then again, if he had directed IM3, he’d have probably ruined it. The only Singer movie I’ve ever enjoyed was The Usual Suspects.

        • Exactly usual suspects was the best thing he’s done… I mean come on Jack the giant slayer wtf was that garbage?

    • He is a mutant, didnt you know? He the the special power of turning the best Marvel comic book franchise out there into crap. Its a very rare power that only 3 other people(Brett Ratner, Gavin Hood, Tim Story) have.

      • Tim Story is the more powerful of that group lol

    • He’s the modern day George Lucas. Lol.

  14. Would you look at that, Wolverine finally has on a bit of blue and yellow.

  15. I honestly do not understand yall , if don’t like the x men franchise (which you made very clearly ) why don’t you just boycott and not see the movie ? Why talk about something you clearly do not like ? Why continue to argue with people on something you just despise all together? Why go see the movie if you hate it so much? I’m just confused about that because if I hate something you damn skippy I aint wasting my time on it. Like I said BOYCOTT if you feeling some type of way about it , tell your friends and family don’t go see and if you feeling extra salty about it dont support Fox at all , its almost like some of yall like the movie and just dont want to say anything about it. In any case you can’t blame Mr.Singer because his movies do sell and critics and the average movie goers seem to like his stuff and the last time I checked both x1 and x2 did pretty well so yea …..

    • I’m sorry but you must nit realize that the name of this website is called screen RANT. That’s the only time I will make this clear to you sir LOL

      • Trying to be cute?

    • @Gene

      And that’s what I’m doing. The trailers we’ve seen so far, the information released and images revealed have given the impression that this will be a terrible movie so I erased it from my list of movies to watch in 2014 and will wait until it airs on TV for free sometime in 2015 before watching.

      What you seem to forget is that as annoying as it can be to see complaints about something you disagree with, there is such a thing as “freedom of speech” and – Paul Young notwithstanding – we’re allowed to voice any (dis)pleasure at a movie or TV show on this and any other website that offers news and rumours for the medium.

      • Please “freedom of speech” whatever I’m so tired of people hiding behind that but whatever.

  16. MORE CONFUSED THAN EVER. So past wolverine has bone claws and future wolverine has metal again? Based on the recent wolverine film IT WOULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND
    WTF GUYS. Singer has no idea what hes doing. Even if they do go pre-adimantium, at what point did he get the metal back?

    • Not necessarily. He should have bones in the ’70s since it’s a while before the Weapon X operation.

      As for future – this is a different timeline, right? So we can assume in this timeline the events of The Wolverine didn’t happen and there have been Sentinels around since the ’70s.

      • In the wolverine movie, the recent one, he had metal claws in WWII unless I’m mistaken.

        • Nope. Bone claws in WWII and after in Vietnam. He gets metal in the late ’80s/early ’90s

          • Rob, on a scale of 1 – 10, how annoyed are you right now at having to explain things that people should’ve easily understood if they’d actually seen The Wolverine?

            • dude trust me, having watched a film would not help certain people at all.

              When ‘The Wolverine’ came out I spent hours responding to baffled viewers on several message boards, asking about stuff that they themselves had already seen on screen.

              People ask about stuff that is explained in the film and I don’t get it.

      • We can also assume Magneto managed to once again bond adamantium to his claws. It would make sense to keep all the x-men at their top forms when fighting sentinals.

      • Did they say it was a different timeline? Most people are not going to try and make these gigantic leaps in comic book style logic to make sense of what they are presenting on the screen. They put it as the stinger scene on the Wolverine, so people are going to naturally put together what they just saw with this next film. Why tack that on there at all if it really has nothing to do with what happened in the Wolverine, unless it is to confuse and possibly p*ss off some fans ?

      • No one involved with this film has said that it takes place in a differnt time line. The next one, apocalypse, probalby will, though. I bet young Xavier dies in the past and it starts that whole age of apocalypse story. Wolvie will take Bishops place as the time displace character who knows how things should have gone.

  17. on prof.X cover….is that a space craft in the background? right behind the EMPIRE title?

    • It looks like a flying puple 70′s cutlass….

    • OMG! I wonder if that’s the Celestials Ship; Apocalypse’s headquarters!

  18. In WWII Wolverine had the bone claws when in the bomb shelter during the opening sequence.

    • And your point?

  19. I was just looking over the Trask Industries viral marketing site and I think it may offer a hint as to how Xavier begins walking again.

    On a timeline it notes that in 1976 “Bolivar Trask revolutionizes the world of prosthetics through DNA-generated artificial limbs…” Then in the Trask Industries: About section it says: “Founded by Bolivar Trask in 1967, Trask Industries was built on the philosophy of advancing human progress through technology and genetics. Our early research led to the revolutionary development of DNA-Generated Prosthetics.”

    Mentioning it twice seems to suggest that it’s more than just a bit of throwaway depth-building. The ’76 date makes it a little circumspect for the movie, but perhaps Xavier is an early test subject?

  20. Why do most x-men movie fans think the Last Stand is the film that messed up the continuity? First Class came after that film and caused all the time line problems.this film is primarily going to fix the screw ups of that film. Apocalypse might fix any problems Bryan Sinder has with the Last Stand.

    • I think first class takes place in a different earth, or at least thats how the writers approached their story so that they can do their own take on the x-men mythos, i recall that film being marketed more as reboot but fox decided to make it part of the whole film continuity anyway. So that said days of future past has to end with a different timeline place thats similar but different from all the other films and then thats where apocalypse comes in.

    • X-Men3 was just bad. Continuity errors started with Wolverine Origins.

      • Origins was a badly written movie, but I do not see where there were significant continuity errors. First Class was just so all over the place about what it was that it really does not fit in with the other movies.

        • Exactly. For example Beast looking like a lion in first class when in the Last Stand he looked more human, Xavier walking in the flash back in the last stand and the ending of Origins yet he was crippled in First Class, in X-Men Xavier says he met Magneto when he was 17 yrs old yet in First Class he had just gotten a degree when they meet, Xavier and magneto clearing being a bit beyound middle age when the go to young Jean Greys house as friends and colleagues at the begining of The Last Stand yet they have there falling out at the end of Fidst Class, also in X-Men Xavier states that Magneto helped him build Cerebro yet Beast did all the work (if I am not mistaken Mags even ask what Cerebro does once it’s up an running, I may be wrong though). Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
          Some people complain about Havok being older than Cyclopse but my view is that it is a different universe than the comics and it was never established that they are brother in these movies, so who cares about that, theses are the same people who get pissed that juggernaut wasn’t Xaviers brother in the Last Stand. Different universe, so who cares if they are related. No one dislikes Origins because they made Victor and Logan brothers they dislike it because it is a badly written script. Things like that don’t make theses films bad. Damaged continuity does. A franchise of films is a legacy. Legacies meed certain established rules to follow so when something doesn’t fit with what was established previously then we (the fans) get pissed about it. My only problem is when people place the blame of these mess ups on the wrong film. Origins and The Last Stand didn’t muck things up, First Class did. Origins and The Last stand are just not as good as they should have been (which also makes us fans angry) but, we need to place the blame where it is due. First class was even more sloppily written than Origins. It was almost as lazily made as that film, maybe even more so.

          • Wolverine:Origins had a decent opening and went down hill with the third act being a literal and figurative meltdown. It did follow the whole Stryker/Weapon X set-up from X-2 and the Victor/Sabertooth, Kayla, and Wraith characters were from the Weapon X storyline from Wolverine’s solo series. The problem was the way they tried to shoe-horn in too many other characters and as I said the use of a weird Deadpool for the third act battle.

            Last Stand suffered from what is really at the core of what some people complain about with this series. They wrote the script like they were writing off the series for whatever reason, and yet still continued to make movies that they felt they had to set in the past because of the really crazy way they ended X-3. That is probably where most of the apprehension comes from with this next film as well, they have never seemed to have a clear plan from one script to the next and all of these time travel/alternate reality gimmicks does not instill much faith for people who are not convinced that these writers really have a handle on this material.

        • Emma Frost is young in Wolverine Origins (1980′s) but older in First Class (1960′s).

          Xavier walks in Wolverine Origins (1980′s) but gets the injury in First Class (1960′s).

          Same thing with Havok.

          Yep, your right. It really started with First Class.

          • Not to mention when they added the unnecessary scene with William Stryker Sr. they made it sound like Jr. still lived at home, when he is shown to be at least the same age as Xavier and Magneto in X-2 and is a high ranking military official and one would assume medically trained middle-aged man in the 1970′s when Origins happened.

            The only mulligan they have with Emma Frost is that the one in Origins was never called by that last name, but in the franchises usual fashion their need to throw in characters as set-pieces with no context comes back to haunt them.

          • Thank you. You are the first fan ofvthese films to ever admit that First Class is evil one.

  21. I’d like to point out that sentinel design was released several months back, singer was standing next to it in a photo.

  22. Quicksilver looks like Ramona Flowers.

    • I was thinking Hit Girl from the Kick Ass franchise, but Ramona Flowers works too!

    • I think they wanted him to look glam rock. If thats what they are going for I think they are successful.

  23. so where are the other 10 posters?

    • Not yet released. They’re doing one per hour for 25 hours or something like that.

  24. I’m dying here. Is Rogue back in the movie now since they posted that cover or are is it just a tease?

    • She’s still cut from the movie, but it seems like they’re just giving fans a little bit of a gift since they disappointed us by taking her out of the entire film.

  25. bryan singer is a terrible director. and quicksilver looks really stupid and will be easily outdone in the avengers age of ultron.

  26. Despite how we feel about Fox’s interpretation of the X-Universe, I will say that most of the cover posters look bad ass. Both Wolverine covers, Mystique, both Magneto, Professor X, Storm, Blink looks bad ass, etc. Toad looks like the hunchback of notre dame, Quicksilver is the most laughable of all and his character design just shows that Fox and Singer really didn’t have any use for him but to piss Marvel/Whedon. But am I the only one excited that future Professor X has his floating chair. If only they could make reference that it was made by Forge.

  27. Whoa what is that ship behind Rogue? maybe a diff angle of the ship behind future Xavier… or a different ship altogether…

  28. How about this since Marvel Studios/Whedon is WORSHIPED how about we just stop making all comic movies including DC so fan boys can stop complaining. Avengers had good visuals but story wise fell flat in an effort to make sure we put these characters in the movie and make some toys. Fan boys don’t understand good story telling they only understand what they can see with their eyes. I liked how the first Trailer for X-men DOFP focused on story and still managed to get me excited. I don’t think a Marvel studios film can simply focus on story they have to sell you on the visuals like transformers (which i like btw) because honestly I like Marvel studios but their visuals is really only thing they have going for them.
    Had Fox did Iron man 3 you would have never heard the end of the complaining but no since it was a product of Marvel studios its deemed forgivable and or there’s an excuse as to why they can change things like they did. even Thor 2 fell short for me story wise but visually it was great.

    • Wait a minute, you seem to be under the impression that people didn’t complain about IM3 when I’m one of the few on this site who loved it and found nothing to complain about while 97% of the site went into nerd meltdown over a brilliantly played plot twist and STILL complain about it and dare to claim IM3 as a “terrible movie” (it isn’t) because they couldn’t comprehend the twist, like children who hate mathematics because they can’t understand a simple equation.

      • I’m sorry what did you just say. You think the ‘plot twist’ was the only reason why people are pissed off about. That was just the icing on the crap cake for me. I was bored throughout the entire movie and when that happened I just disconnected all together, the movie was un-engaging and uninspired and that thing you call a ‘plot twist’ is one of the worst cliches I’ve ever seen. Scooby Doo uses subterfuge all the time, but when you put it in an Iron Man movie, people like your are saying “Wvat a twist!!” like M. Night couldn’t have done better himself. I’m all for action movies but don’t try to pawn off a cheap trick, and then when people are upset say that it went over people’s heads.

    • Actually, had FOX done Iron Man 3, we would have ended up with a lot of continuity errors and a VERY dramatic change from canon.

      For instance, in Iron Man 3, Killian ended up being Mandarin which isn’t that far off from the current storyline of Killian’s character in the comics.

      But with Fox it would have ended up being a piece of mutated Mandarin chicken that uses chopsticks to fight Iron Man. Instead of Tony Stark as Iron Man, they would have made it so that Bruce Banner becomes Iron Man.

      Also, as for continuity, they would have placed Pepper in the movie as thought it was the first time she and Stark were meeting which would mess up the continuity of Stark’s and her relationship. Also, they would have done something where he invents an Iron Man suit and claims it is his first suit ever built which would throw off continuity of Iron Man 1.

  29. Xmen first class was a good movie had its flaws but considering it was rushed it was good. But Bryan Singer sucks only good movie he made was usual suspects. The first xmen movie was garbage..watch it now and tell me Im wrong. The best part of the secod one was the first couple minutes with Nightcrwaler and the rest was rubbish. Not sure why he keeps getting superhero movies it blows my mind. This will suck..
