'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Early Reactions; Cyclops Back for 'Apocalypse'?

X-Men: Days of Future Past looks like a very difficult movie to get right. With a massive ensemble cast of both old and new mutants (with more than one version of some of them) and a plot based around time travel and divergent timelines, there are a lot of different ways in which this "inbetweequel" could have ended up simply collapsing under the weight of its own ambition.

As a result, the marketing for X-Men: Days of Future Past has been generating a fairly equal mix of excitement and trepidation. There have been concerns over certain character designs, and some fans are unhappy that Wolverine once again seems to be the main protagonist after getting two standalone movies to himself. The fact that the X-Men have been spending their weekends selling burgers for Carl's Jr. hasn't helped their image much, either.

The trailers for X-Men: Days of Future Past have been pretty promising, however, and based on the reactions to early screenings of the movie, it seems like director Bryan Singer may have successfully dodged the potential pitfalls and delivered a great X-Men movie. Here are just a few of the rave reviews circulating on Twitter.
