Sunday evening’s season finale of The Walking Dead featured the TV spot debut of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s great to see Bryan Singer back in the X-Men universe, since he hasn’t worked with Marvel’s favorite mutants since 2003’s X2. Over the past decade, Singer has directed three features (Superman Returns, Valkyrie, Jack the Giant Slayer) with varying success, and one wonders if Singer will bring a completely new vision to the latest film.
It’s a pretty brief clip, but it does bring the point home. Whether it’s the past or the present, these X-Men are fighting to save the world, and as Professor X sagely points out, “Is the future truly set?” I could be wrong, but seventeen seconds into the clip has Magneto leading a group of Sentinels!
Starring Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!!
