The first teaser trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was finally released earlier today (you can find it by clicking here), and it’s quite something, eh? Unlike the recent Captain America: The Winter Solider trailer, it doesn’t feature any huge special effects – director Bryan Singer recently confirmed that the majority simply aren’t ready at this point – but it does put the spotlight on the story and characters.

However, while 20th Century Fox are clearly saving the big reveal of the Sentinels for the first full-length trailer, there were still an awful lot of noteworthy moments in this first look at footage from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Here are ten of the biggest that we noticed, but if there’s anything we’ve forgotten or any you may not agree with, then be sure to let us know in the comment section below!

10. Bishop


Cable seemingly won’t be in X-Men: Days of Future Past (they’re instead saving him for Jeff Wadlow’s planned X-Force adaptation), but if there’s only one time travelling mutant who should be included in this release, it’s Bishop! In an alternate timeline – similar to the one being used in this movie, perhaps hinting that his complicated backstory is being folded into this reality – Lucas Bishop’s world has been torn apart by Sentinels and mutants are imprisoned in concentration camps. The “M” tattoo over his eye is not there by choice; it’s what all mutants are given in his timeline. How exactly this will all play into the events of Days of Future Past is unclear, but it’s obvious that the fan-favourite character is being used to further show off what a bleak future awaits the X-Men if Wolverine is unable to alter the past.

    From that trailer I don’t think Xavier meets Xavier. Looks far more likely that is Wolverine passing on a message from future-Xavier to past-Xavier.

    wolverine has bone claws because in the 2nd origin movie, he returns to bone claws after getting the adamantium ones cut off. Then he travels back in time leaving him with bone claws in 1973

  • Chris

    Yes, Wolverine returns to bone claws after the events of The Wolverine, but this list is questioning why he has adamantium claws in 1973. It wouldn’t make sense because:

    1. He got his adamantium skeleton in the 80s, so even if there was no time travel element in the story, there is no way for him to have his metal claws at this point in time.

    2. If we are assuming that the scene in the trailer takes place after the events of The Wolverine, where he loses his adamantium claws, then he should be seen with bone claws rather than metal.

    Of course, both of those points are moot if the scene in question takes place after he goes through the Weapon X program but before he gets his claws cut off.

    Actually, Singer has confirmed that those claws are bone in the past. Not adamantium.

  • curtis yeomans

    Those are pre-CGI claws…stunt claws if you will, the bone look will be added later.

  • DrNope

    I’m not seeing anything that confirms the presence of metal claws.
