These X-Men Days of Future Past posters highlight one thing: the film is one of the biggest and most varied wild cards of the upcoming summer movie season. Normally, any X-Men movie would be a home run, but director Bryan Singer has really swung for the fences this time, attempting to link the new “First Class” continuity with the original storyline in a massive multiple-timeline action film featuring several dozen mutants, some at two different ages.
It’s a gamble. As we get closer to the May 23 release, you’ll read much more about the film. Russ was on set, I recently saw footage in Singer’s edit bay, and we’ll start to see more footage. But one thing is for certain – the film offers a myriad of options for artistic exploration. All those mutants; all those timelines; all those actors; it’s a cornucopia of comic book inspiration.
Which brings us back to these X-Men Days of Future Past posters. One site has been recruiting talented artists and fans to make posters for the film. Below, you can see a selection of our favorites. Read More »

When he was cast as Wolverine in 1999 as a late choice to replace Dougray Scott in Bryan Singer’s X-Men, Hugh Jackman wasn’t exactly the vision of the character fans had in mind. The lanky, good-looking Australian was a far cry from the hairy runt of a Canadian that had become the best-selling character in Marvel’s pantheon. But Jackman’s physical presence and pure charisma won audiences over, and over the course of five films he has redefined the Wolverine character for a huge audience.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is Jackman’s sixth turn as Wolverine (or seventh if you count his brief First Class cameo) and he doesn’t seem to be ready to give up the claws any time soon. Last August I, along with a few other editors, spoke to Jackman on the set of Days of Future Past, and the discussion ranged from his own growth to the development of director Bryan Singer, and some non-spoilerish details about the past and future story of Days of Future Past.
