Fans of the X-Men franchise of films will be chomping at the bit with this first trailer from the 2014 to be released “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”. The film prior to this was “X-Men: First Class” and took place in the sixties and this new one jumps ahead to both the seventies and the far flung future. I find this an interesting way to do the films so let’s check it out down below. I’ve also added the premise and a lot of the ensemble casting.

The Premise: X-Men: Days of Future Past is a 2014 superhero film directed and co-produced by Bryan Singer and written by Simon Kinberg from a story by Kinberg, Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn. The film is based on the fictional X-Men characters that appear in Marvel Comics and is the seventh installment of the X-Men film series, the sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and X-Men: First Class (2011). The story, inspired by the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline “Days of Future Past” by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, focuses on two time periods, with Wolverine traveling back in time to 1973 to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I really liked how this trailer looked and did rather enjoy “X-Men: First Class” despite all of these films not taking place in the Marvel Studios universe of films aka the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it is what it is. I don’t see Fox letting go of this license anytime soon and the same applies for Sony Pictures who control anything to do with Spider-Man. As you can see, we are getting some new X-Men into the mix and that is always a good thing for me as opposed to the same characters again and again. Though its a super long time away from being released I can see myself attending this one early in the run. What do you think about this first trailer and does it spark your interest already? Chime in down below since our using WordPress allows you to do so. Thanks and see you again.
