Don’t be fooled. While Fox is touting this as the final trailer for “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” there is still a long month ahead before it hits theatres. And in that time, we’re sure there will be no shortage of featurettes, clips, Instagram vids, Vines, skywriting and more for Bryan Singer‘s ambitious franchise entry. But before that, yes, it’s the final trailer for the movie.
As you know, this one is stacked to the roof with mutants past and present, with a storyline that will time travel to bring them all on screen together. It’ll be a tricky narrative road to navigate, but Singer seems to be on top of it and it has led to some interesting places. An alternate mutant/human history has been created by the writers, which is admittedly kinda cool, and it should be noted that ‘DOFP’ will set up “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which will refocus the story back on the First Class with Charles (James McAvoy), Erik (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawerence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult), all signed to return.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” opens on May 23rd. Watch below and also check out a recent 20-minute Q&A about the film with Jackman, Fassbender and McAvoy.
