Today we see the release of two teaser posters for Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel, X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Though not the most revealing pieces of artwork around, we get a look at both Magento and Professor X and the two different actors who play them. In Professor X’s case it’s James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart and with Magneto it’s Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender. The concept behind the posters is neat and for what is sure to be the start of a HUGE marketing blitz, I’ll say that I’m impressed.
In addition to the posters, we also have a video of the entire Comic-Con panel which took place over the weekend. It’s a bit long but definitely worth the watch for fans of the franchise. We learn quite a bit about the film and it’s always fun seeing the cast members up on stage entertaining the audience.
The wildly ambitious film is set to involve time travel and an alternate future and in doing so, will bring back both the old and young versions of most of the key characters, which should be interesting, to say the least.
X-Men: Days of Future Past releases on May 23rd, 2014 and stars just about everyone who has ever been associated with an X-Men film. No, really. Aside from Fassbender, McKellen, McAvoy and Stewart, we also get Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and more. Plus, we also get new additions like Omar Sy and Peter Dinklage.
