Fans are sure to have many questions after they see Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but one they have going in can now be answered. At the end of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, Magneto (Michael Fassbender) sends a bullet into the spine of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). We then see Charles in a wheelchair, and we know he stays there for pretty much the rest of his life.
Fast-forward to the first footage from the sequel, Days of Future Past, in which Charles Xavier is walking again. How could that be? Well, 20th Century Fox has just released a new clip that explains. The clip also has some fantastic screaming between Magneto and Charles, putting the acting of Fassbender and McAvoy on display. Find out how Xavier can walk below. Read More »

As of last year, it looked like Anna Paquin‘s Rogue was going to be one of the few mutants not returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though she’d already shot some footage, director Bryan Singer ultimately didn’t have room for her one and only scene, and so Rogue ended up on the cutting room floor.
Or so we thought. Now it appears that Rogue was never out of the movie and, in fact, that Singer couldn’t have taken her out if he’d wanted to. Find out why after the jump.

After some intense promos and clips (and a couple of truly WTF Carl’s Jr. commercials), Fox has released one final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.
As usual, the video has mutant heroes battling mean humans, terrifying Sentinels, and their own inner angst across two different timelines. What’s different is that this particular trailer plays up Wolverine’s role in the whole thing. Though he doesn’t tend to be much of a team player, desperate times call for desperate measures, so this one has him running around the ’70s trying to get the gang together.

He’s met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about possibly playing the role and is already working on an accent. Read More »

Up until now, the X-Men: Days of Future Past version of Quicksilver has been relegated to still images. Even without knowing how he’d look in motion, fans have had plenty to say about the punk metallic look of the character. Now, his movements have been revealed thanks to commercial for fast food burger chain Carl’s Jr. It shows Quicksilver in action, which seems like very odd place to reveal the movement of a character whose design has generated such polarized responses. Check out the Quicksilver Carls Jr commercial below. Read More »
