‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Posters: Take a Glimpse Through Time
Just days after the ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ cast and crew surprised the Hall H audience at Comic-Con 2013 with a panel featuring debut footage, the Bryan Singer-directed ‘First Class’ sequel has dropped the first two posters.
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ combines both casts of the original films and the ‘First Class’ installment together for one epic superhero blowout. The film sees an apocalyptic future where giant robots called Sentinels have devastated human and mutantkind. To prevent this future, Wolverine is sent back in time to warn the team’s past selves of the life-altering moment that kicks this future into motion.
This film will mark the seventh time Hugh Jackman has portrayed Wolverine on the big screen, currently tying the character with Superman in number of feature film appearances.
The ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ posters, released via EW, play off the film’s insanely large ensemble — the first showcasing Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy as future and past Professor Charles Xavier, respectively, while the second features Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender in the same manner for Magneto.
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ also stars Halle Berry (Storm), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask), Omar Sy (Bishop), Adam Canto (Sunspot), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Fan Bingbing (Blink; reportedly), Booboo Stewart (Warpath), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Josh Helmen (young William Stryker; reportedly). The film is set for release on May 23, 2014.
