Marvel dominated the comic-book news cycle this week with Guardians of the Galaxy, leaving other studios with upcoming superhero projects frantically vying for some of the spotlight. Sony gave us our first good look at Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Fox announced their lineup for the Fantastic Four reboot, and the DC rumor mill told us that Michael B. Jordan has met with Zack Snyder for Batman Vs. Superman. So, it should come as no surprise that 20 new images have surfaced for X-Men: Days of Future Past, reminding fans that the mutants will be arriving sooner than the Guardians.
Marketing for Days of Future Past has gone into full swing as the film draws closer to its May 23rd release date. We’ve recently received a fair amount of images and character bios and got a bit of insight into one of the film’s mysteries surrounding Beast. With the sequel arriving in just three short months, we should be getting some new footage pretty soon as well.
Today, 20 new images from the film surfaced, courtesy of Collider. The photos contain a couple behind-the-scenes shots as well as some new looks at Jennifer Lawrence in and out of her blue Mystique makeup, a better look at Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, Peter Dinklage’s magnificent mustache, our first glimpses of Toad and William Striker in action and Quicksilver with what looks like a very young Scarlet Witch.
Bryan Singer’s return to the X-Men franchise is easily one of the most anticipated films of the year, mainly because we’re all curious to see if he can pull off the many ambitious aspects of the film. Making a fully packed superhero movie is one thing, but throwing in time travel and reuniting casts from two franchise timelines is another.
Take a look at the pictures below and let us know what you think. Are you excited for X-Men: Days of Future Past? Can Singer pull it off?
