I've read a few people writing off X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and I'm thinking at this point that they should keep their cynicism in check. If this works like I think it will, we'll be seeing some interesting competition on the superhero genre front with Fox and Marvel. I think it's a safe bet that Marvel won't be getting the rights back to X-MEN anytime soon.
I love the scope of this trailer - until now, the X-movies have always felt a little smaller in comparison to their Avenging kissing cousins. But no more. We get Sentinels, time travel, and war in this brief 2 and a half minute trailer, and personally I think Michael Fassbender's Magneto is probably worth the price of admission alone. Although X2 feels a tad dated now, I remember at the time being incredibly excited to see what Bryan Singer did next with these characters, and more than 10 years later, we're finally getting it. Here's the new trailer:
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST opens this May.
