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 »
