X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer

Today would see the release of the first Official Trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. The trailer shows Professor Xavier and Magneto persuading Wolverine to travel back in time and prevent the war against mutants. We also get to see the younger versions of Xavier and Magneto and other cast members from X-Men: First Class again, as well as other cast members from the original three films, and new characters including Bishop and Warpath.

My Thoughts

I personally really liked this trailer, as it had a nice sombre tone to it, not showing too much of the events whilst getting me excited for the films release in May of next year. From what they showed in the trailer I am happy with how they've tweaked to Days of Future Past storyline to fit both sets of movies, as although it's a shame that Kitty Pryde is no longer the person travelling to the past, it makes much more sense for this story that it's Wolverine. It was also nice to see most of the cast members from both sets of films make a small appearance in the trailer as well, as well as seeing some of the new characters like Bishop and Warpath, and I hope that unlike some of the X-Men that were added to the original three films (such as Colossus) that these characters have a key role in the film. I also liked the meeting of the two Xavier's, but question whether this actually happens or whether it's just symbolism. Either way I am very excited about the film and can't wait for May to come.
