‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Teaser Hypes Incoming Surprises

With the still-growing success of the superhero movie genre, the film licenses to key Marvel Comics properties are more valuable than ever. Twentieth Century Fox sees that and while they gave up on Daredevil - with the rights reverting back to Disney-owned Marvel Studios – they held tight onto the Fantastic Four and their flagship comic book series, the X-Men.

It’s because of that fact that Fox is taking major strides in bringing their mutant characters back to the forefront of upcoming blockbusters over the next few years and much of the series feature depends on X-Men: Days of Future Past, their second most expensive film production ever (behind only Avatar), and the most expensive comic book adaptation of all-time.

It’s not just money the studio is throwing at Days of Future Past however, a film that brings back the stars of X-Men: First Class and merges their next adventure via time-travel with the familiar faces of the original X-Men trilogy. Fox is bringing in big names in the industry to make sure that they’re tapping into the vast library of characters and stories they own. Marvel Comics legend Mark Millar was hired as a consultant for their films going forward and A-list screenwriter Simon Kinberg signed a 3-year deal to help develop larger story arcs that span multiple films. With James Mangold working away on another Wolverine movie, Josh Trank (Chronicle) beginning to cast his reboot of the Fantastic Four and Bryan Singer back at the helm for potentially the next two X-Men team-up event movies, the studio is taking the series more serious than ever. But it all begins with X-Men: Days of Future Past.

We saw the Days of Future Past comic-con footage, presented on stage last summer by practically every superstar in the film’s cast, and that footage released as the film’s first full-length teaser trailer in October. We’ve yet to see much action in the film, let alone the giant robot Sentinels the X-Men will be battling in the past and “present,” but more is coming very soon. Fox promises some major reveals next week coming via Empire and offered this brief Instagram tease to hold us over:

Lots of love for the leads with clear shots of Michael Fassbender’s young Magneto (with a different helmet design!), James McAvoy’s young Professor Charles Xavier, and Jennifer Lawrence’s young Mystique. We also see Wolverine drowning, old Magneto and bearded Iceman (same shot from the trailer) and an interesting scene of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver breaking glass.

Another key sequence is the new mutant characters of Warpath, Sunspot and Blink standing back-to-back underground in the future. This shot likely ties into the Moscow Sentinel attack we learned about through a not-really-spoilery script leak recently. Excited for more?

  1. This new footage is still unable to peak my interest, which practically near none until now. And that’s not good considering I enjoyed The First Class. Well, let’s see if the upcoming trailer will do it better.
    Warpath and Sunspot look nice though (a buffer body would be better). I just hope they won’t suffer short screen time in the movie :(

    • Warpath in the books is like The Rock with long hair.

      • please, Rob, dont include spoilers on the articles. Not every reader wants to know those type of details about the scenes

        • dude if you don’t want to get spoiler just don’t read the article about those movie lol

        • Mutants and Sentinels in the film are not spoilers. We don’t have any actual plot details outside of the main time-travel stuff.

        • Hey smart guy, he said “in the books”

          • Even worse, I don’t think he was responding to the comment, he just clicked “reply” when he was trying to comment on the main article.

      • If they tried to cast anyone based on Liefeld’s style of anatomy all of the men would have to be steroid users with little heads and all of the woman would have to have extensive amounts of plastic surgery…..

    • “This new footage is still unable to peak my interest, which practically near none until now.”

      What changed that made you somewhat interested? That entire sentence seems to contradict itself.

      • LMAO

    • I believe they are in the future part of the movie so they will probably be glorified cameos.

  2. From the Warpath picture, it looks like they will introduce him as an X-Force member. That’s his X-Force uniform in the picture… well similar to it.

  3. I’m interested to find out what they’ll actually reveal on the 27th, maybe the first shot of a Sentinel? I can’t wait to see that! This is the best one of these 6 sec vine trailer thingies… I guess thats going to be the new thing…

    I thought the helmet from the most of first class was perfect, and was disappointed when they made it red and adding whatever the hell that was in the final scene. This one looks like maybe Magneto has to improvise and mold one quickly out of metal or something… I can’t wait to see the movie and find out how this all pieces together, but for some reason I feel I need to temper expectations.

    • fingers crossed for a sentinel reveal! And yeah I see what you mean about the helmet, wonder what that’s all about?!

  4. So many exciting comic book movies coming this year! I think I’m doubly hyped because I wasn’t really “wowed” in 2013. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel (Man of Steel more so) but we KINDA knew what we were getting last year. With this and Guardians I don’t know what to expect. Not to mention the supposed new tone of Captain America…
    Anyway, I wanna see some sentinel now please!

  5. The future X-Men movies I hope to see are The Wolverine sequel and X-Men: Apocalypse
    The fantastic four should stay out of the X-Men universe(The world of MUTANTS!)Period.

  6. It had never really dawned on me prior to this sneak peek but drowning out to be a fairly efficient way of offing old Wolverine…. You can’t generate oxygen, right? Slicing up the water, I guess, would be scary but ineffective…

    • Nah he can survive that, they tried that in the comics once and failed.
      The Xavier protocols state that the only possible way he could see to kill Wolverine was to cut of his head and make damn sure the head wasn’t close to the body.
      The only persons in comics as far as I can remember that can remove the adamantium from his body or other parts of his body are Magneto (he removed it from his body completely) and the Hulk ripped of his arm (however that is from alternate timelines).

      • Looks to me like hes having his adamantium being ripped out in this teaser.

        • To me, it looks like hes having it put back in…. at least his claws. hence the photos on EW with him having metal claws.

          • Nevermind its rebar, back in the past looks like magneto is wrapping him in it.

      • Yes Wolverine can die from drowning. It would take a long time but he can most certainly die since his brain couldn’t heal fast enough from lack of oxygen. It’s been covered in a few books and Sabertooth came up with that idea in an Ultimates book, I believe. And Wolverine killed his son Dakken by drowning him since Dakken had the same healing powers as logan. So yes drowning can kill Wolverine.

  7. I’m just hoping they leave Warpath’s main powers of strength and durability intact. He’s not nearly buffed out enough, and I’m wondering if they’re going to nerf him into being an agile guy with knives instead of the super-fast tank he is in the books.

  8. Like, I want to see this movie right, and I want it to right all the wrongs it did with the whole fuqed up Wolverine-Is-The-Leader crap and bring back CYCLOPS to his rightful place, but on a subconscious level, I want this movie to Flop as hell (it would teach Fox a huge lesson)… indecision, indecision…

  9. Did Singer not say that in this movie they would not go back to those black leather suits? He vowed not to do it and here they are. They are very stylish but they look off in a comic book adaptation. I love Singer but this is kinda underwhelming. I hope this movie rocks but so far it doesn’t seem to be so.

    • Hahahahaha!! I totally forgot, he did say that. Oh well, these x-men movies are all such a mess. Even the good ones are just never exactly what they should be. I really hope this one surprises me like First Class did, however Mathew Vaughn is one hell of a director. Brian Singer left an ugly taste in my mouth from Superman Returns. To use a boxing metaphor, Bryan Singer has a “suspect chin” in his film making ability.

    • The costumes look pathetic as usual. The costumes in first class looked ok, you know, Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and Cap have all proven you can come close to the comics version of the costume and not look stupid. Fn. Wolverine needs his damn costume, not a trench coat or just a leather jacket.

  10. I wonder if the blasting sound effects will be in the movie, to accentuate the short clips of x-men….doing nothing….like in the footage above.

    Just wondering. Very dramatic noise, and makes me want to see that movie right now. I’m just….that….simple.

  11. I’m looking forward to Captain America and The Avengers II than this.

  12. I guess I’ll be the first commenter to say that, although I have some hidden skepticism about Fox delivering an amazing X-Men movie, I’m still excited to see DOFP. These teases are just making me more anxious. I don’t have time to speculate how bad this movie “might” be, I’m just ready for Monday to get here so I can know what these special reveals are and May 27th hurry up. Fox is playing it well, revealing so much but so little at the same time. I BETTER SEE A SENTINEL!!! LOL

  13. Those costumes look retarded as hell… Gives it the “B” movie look…

    • Lol. You’ll be the first in line.

  14. WHERE>>>IS>>>CYCLOPS???!!!

    • +1 octilion

  15. At least Warpath does not have a Tweety-Bird on his head like johnny Depp as Tonto. Now if we could just get Warpath to stay out of his mom’s Revlon make-up kit….!

    • LOL…hahah, yeah this movie looks like a s***** TS.

  16. Mark Millar as film producer ? I’m sold.
    I’ll definitely watch this one.

  17. This will f*ckin rule!

    BTW Am I the only who thought Jen Law was in a halloween party with that “witch hat” the firt glance you had of the tease?

  18. is…is that Rufio from Hook?

  19. Haha! I was thinking the same thing. All growed up!

  20. How are the continuity issues being fixed in this latest movie?

    • When you get to the end of the film, the official position will be: “Okay, everything’s retconned now! Ignore everything except First Class.”

  21. Xmen being way overdone, do I like em, sure they are fun but the 6th time around its time for something new and fun and entertaining……DEADPOOL. Mark Millar has done nothing buy pimp his own work.

    Fox is so dumb for not seeing the potential they have with DEADPOOL and CABLE.

    Im sick of wolverine already. WE WANT DEADPOOL
