5. “A New Weapon…”

A New Weapon

Interestingly, this trailer features only a very brief glimpse at the Sentinels introduced by Bolivar Trask in the 1970s, leading us to wonder just how much of a role they end up playing in those past scenes. After all, they were of course conspicuosly absent in X-Men, X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand (unless you count what was essentially an Easter Egg in the Danger Room opening sequence of the latter), so it could be a safe assumption that they weren’t a success back then, with the programme perhaps being resurrected decades later for the future scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Either way, this snippet gives us our first look at Peter Dinklage as Trask, and the performance from the Game of Thrones star is sure to be a highlight!
