The main thrust of the advertising campaign for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is that the film will contain characters from both the original 'X-Men' franchise and prequel film 'X-Men: First Class,' making this one of the biggest superhero movies ever made. Although the trailer and previous images have given us looks at this enormous ensemble of black leather-clad mutant warriors, the film's official site revealed a series of character portraits, giving us our best look at 17 of the characters.
Not content to let Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen have all the fun, James McAvoy has also gotten in on the action -- 20th Century Fox has released an 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' promo photo for the one and only Charles Xavier, professor and all-around badass. Just check out this glorious mane of hair, ladies and gentlemen.
It was only Thursday that Fox announced the first 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer will drop online this coming Tuesday, October 29, and now we have more of a preview than just a six-second-long teaser. Get a load of the new photos, featuring the ultimate mutant team-up.
UPDATE: Now with even more photos below!
Aside from his upcoming performance as Allen Ginsberg in 'Kill Your Darlings' (a movie in which he has a much talked-about gay sex scene with Dane DeHaan) and the false rumor about him playing Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic, Daniel Radcliffe had his first days of rehearsals for a new 'Frankenstein' movie. No, this is not anything like 'I, Frankenstein.' In fact, the actor opened up about the project, providing a few nuggets on this mysterious new rendition.
It was already weird that we're getting a sci-fi/action version of the Frankenstein story in the form of 'I, Frankenstein,' but the concept of another take on the iconic tale starring Daniel Radcliffe as Igor was even stranger. Now, this latter version has gotten a little more bonkers with the addition of the great James McAvoy as none other than Victor Frankenstein himself.
