Quint's first impressions of the X-Men: Days of Future Past footage shown at Comic-Con!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The plan for today is to post quick stories and update them with pictures and perhaps some more detail when I can. I'm throwing together my impressions of the X-Men: Days of Future Past footage run.
Firstly, it seems that the bridge between the two times is Wolverine whose consciousness is sent back by Professor X somehow. We got quick glimpses of Bishop and a bunch of future mutant folk with Pris Blade Runner style over the top make up on. Bishop looked like his picture recently, not all Kabuki'd up.
Patrick Stewart tells Jackman that he has to go back. “You'll have to do for me what I once did for you.” “So, I wake up in my younger body. Then what?” Ian McKellen's Magneto steps in to tell Wolvie that he'll not only have to find Xavier, he'll need to find young Magneto as well. Xavier warns that his younger self is a much different man. “Find me, guide me, have patience with me.” “Patience is not my strong suit.”
In the 1970s stuff we see McAvoy's Xavier in the wheelchair. He's scruffy, looking more like a Vietnam Vet than a Professor. He's detached, sad, feeling sorry for himself. Our first look at him had him in front of the Cerebro door, the light forms a blue X on his face as the door slowly opens. We saw a shot of McAvoy blowing dust off of Cerebro, doing a mind meld type thing with Wolverine and glimpses of Nixon, the presidential escape tunnel being opened up and crowds rioting.
Oh, and there's also a shot of Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask (confirmed by him on the panel) in a suit and a mustache sitting behind a bank of microphones, possibly in front of a congressional body.
Fassbender has a good moment where he's floating amongst a panicked crowd, hand extended as Mystique slides across the ground (seemingly against her will) towards him through the throngs of people.
More stuff soon... Marvel panel is about to start!
