The X-Men: Days of Future Past debut trailer is here, and it travels time to bring back the mutants you love in a double dose. In fact, if Hugh Jackman’s take is accurate, This X-Men film will supposedly be the equal of three movies as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
The latest X-Men film is said to fix problems created when X-Men: The Last Stand seemingly destroyed the franchise. The third film in the series, directed by Brett Ratner, was almost a complete failure as a sequel, and as a film by itself. It introduced Angel who, after being given an emotional opening sequence or two, practically became nothing but background scenery for the rest of the movie. Storm was a blabbermouth who barely even did anything, annoying pretty much everybody who saw it. The plot of the first two films which centered around Wolverine barely even saw him used in the third film.
In the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer just released, we will once again see the eldest X-Men teaming up with their younger selves. Apparently there is a big plot to use sentinels to bring justice against mutants, and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) has come back to ask Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) help his younger self stop a war before it begins.
Most of the recurring characters from the original trilogy are brought back, as well as some we hadn’t seen since, with Hugh Jackman pulling double duty as the only mutant who doesn’t age due to his healing factor. Returning from X-Men: The Last Stand are Rogue (Anna Paquin), Shadowcat (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), and Storm (Halle Berry) in what is said to be a darker movie than the others. Professor X and Magneto (Ian McKellen) are both slated to be there alongside their counterparts in both time periods.
According to the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer, the trio of actors will go back in time to stop a war before it ever begins, and alongside them comes a new mutant called Bishop, a veteran of the Mutant Registration Act, whose ability is to travel through time. His comic book rival Trevor Fitzroy is a no-show, but perhaps we’ll see him in the next film?
It seems the younger Professor X wants nothing to do with the future and will eventually meet his older self and be reminded of why he needs to fight. It is unclear if this is him physically meeting himself or a psychic thing, but there will be a confrontation between them.
