There are three major superhero movies arriving in theaters in the next two months and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' somehow feels like the riskiest endeavor. By bringing back director Bryan Singer and merging the original cast and the 'X-Men: First Class' cast via time travel, it's undoubtedly the biggest X-Men movie to date. It could be good or it could be bad, but as these six new featurettes show us, it was certainly an adventure to make.

There's a rich tradition among the superhero movie elite of studios offering up the all the goods (and by goods we mean footage) before their movies even hit theaters. (See 'Captain America 2' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.') People wanna try before they buy, right? The same motto seems to apply to 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' which released even more photos, along with the latest magazine covers for the latest Total Film issue.
In the final stretch of 'X-Men: First Class,' Nicholas Hoult's Hank McCoy ended up accelerating his powerful mutation, transforming him into the hairy blue monster known to comic book fans as Beast. That's why it was so odd when Hoult started popping up in set pictures and in trailers for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in his human form with nary a single blue fur to be found. If you're big ol' nerds like us and want to know why this is the case, know that the film does offer an explanation ... and it feels awfully familiar.
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.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is the most ambitious 'X-Men' film to date, as teased in the latest photos. Two casts, one being the original trilogy actors and the second being the 'First Class' generation, converge to tell a story with two parallel time periods. How will it all play out?
These days, nearly every movie star wants to play a superhero and Channing Tatum is no exception. The '21 Jump Street' and 'Magic Mike' star has previously expressed interest in playing the popular X-Men character Gambit on the big screen, but it all sounded like talk and little more. But now, X-Men franchise producer Shuler Donner has revealed that yes, she would very much like to see Tatum play the character and that yes, a Gambit movie may actually happen.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director Bryan Singer loves to tease his upcoming film, as all through production he tweeted photos from the set, and now he's setting us up to pay attention on January 27, which promises to be a "day of surprises.'
Although the biggest hook for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is how the film will combine both the original X-Men team and the cast of 'X-Men: First Class,' it will have no shortage of new mutant heroes and villains. The most intriguing of them (for reasons beyond the movie's story itself) is Quicksilver, the Marvel Universe's answer to the Flash. A new still from the film gives us our first look at actor Evan Peters in the role.
