‘Captain America 2′ and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Tease the Coming Action

Captain America 2 X-Men Days of Future Past
Marvel Studios/Fox

Although both ‘Captain America 2‘ and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ don’t arrive in theaters until 2014, the earliest previews are already rolling out. However, both films aren’t currently being sold to the mass audiences. No, they’re being sold over at the CineEurope conference, where theater owners are given a glimpse at what they can expect to come their way in the near future.

The CineEurope conference offers international cinema exhibition and distribution professionals the chance to preview the upcoming movie slate and watch extensive product reels. This year featured both new ‘Captain America’ and ‘X-Men’ movies, and since they’re still under fairly tight wraps, any new information is worth checking out.

In the case of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ the CineEurope audience was shown a pre-recorded video featuring co-director Joe Russo, who declared, “It’s going to be much greater than any Marvel movie to date.” It’s tough to judge such a vague statement without a visual, since that’s a sentence that could have been spoken with a tongue firmly in cheek. However, the many set photos will have to hold us over until the first trailer hits.

An ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ set tour hosted by Bryan Singer proved a little more revealing, with the director saying that the new movie “takes place all over the world, including in Russia, China and Japan. So there will [be] more of an international flair than the other films.” On one level, this is the perfect thing to say to a bunch of international film exhibition companies, but on another, it’s a nice indication of how epic the new movie could really be. What he failed to mention, though, was France — we know something big happens in Paris that’ll majorly change the course of events.

We’ll keep you updated with the latest information on these two films, especially when they come to Comic-Con 2013. ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ opens on April 4, 2014, and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ opens on May 23, 2014.
