Despite the recent sexual abuse allegations being lobbed at director Bryan Singer, promotion for his upcoming sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past is still in full swing. With the film opening in just 18 short days, an onslaught of posters, movie clips and TV spots has begun. Today, 20th Century Fox debuted 23 new pieces of character art for the time-travelling mutant extravaganza, though “new” seems to be a relative term here.
If you get a strong sense of deja vu from these images, don’t be alarmed. All Fox has done is recycled the character photos used in those 25 Empire Magazine covers we saw a few months back, this time leaving out Rogue and Bryan Singer (the latter of which is probably a good idea).
Thankfully, the shots of Washington D.C. have been replaced by fresh images of mass destruction, complete with our awkwardly-costumed heroes standing before a giant crumbling X. There are definitely a few cool shots in here, but it probably would have been smart of the marketing team to use a different image of Quicksilver, considering how poorly the photo of him was received the last time we saw it.
