The day may come when the courage of mutants fail…and it may have been decades ago. For it is in the past that hope for mutant kind’s survival lies with this summer’s hotly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. And the reflected eras of past and future are both on display in nine new posters from 20th Century Fox (released via Empire) and Bryan Singer for the superhero epic.
In the two posters, both time periods for Magneto are on full majestic display with Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender sharing the same one-sheet. But in the others, the time-traveler who cannot age, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), is in the same frame as the mutant upon whose mission the entire fate of the world lies—and also the not-so-coincidentally second biggest star in the film: Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. And the others are some random, if enjoyable pairings for the characters, plus two more solo images for Logan (he is getting top billing for this team movie, after all):
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on May 23, 2014. Directed by Bryan Singer, the man who launched the cinematic X-franchise, it will not only reunite the all-important X-Men trinity of Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Ian McKellen, but it will also team them up with their younger X-Men: First Class counterparts like Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy. And that's just the start! Plenty of old X-Men favorites, including Shawn Ashmore's Iceman and Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde are back for this one, too. Whatever X-Men: Days of Future Past may turn out to be, it probably won't be dull!
