Empire Magazine has become an unofficial debut forum for superhero and genre movies over the last few years and they’ve often done several different cover variants to celebrate upcoming films, but nothing close to what they are doing for their upcoming issue featuring X-Men: Days of Future Past. TWENTY-FIVE different covers, each featuring a different mutant or character from the upcoming Bryan Singer-helmed entry in the franchise were released today in advance of the issue’s publication. Can you name them all? I do believe this is the first we’ve seen of Toad and Havok’s new look at the very least. X-Men Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.

Bryan Singer, who has been Tweeting pictures from the set of X-Men Days of Future Past with the enthusiasm of a spectator, today gave people an idea of the scale of sentinels we’ll see in the film. They’re not the Pacific Rim-sized sentinels in the comics, but I don’t know that would work in a movie as well as something Transformer-sized. I think the designs look great.
Coming to theaters on May 23, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will combine both the cast of the original X-Men films and X-Men: First Class, but where everything lines up on the franchise’s timeline has remained somewhat hazy. Director Bryan Singer, in an interview with Empire Magazine, shed some light on the chronology.
“It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class. I’d say it’s not a sequel to one of the others. It’s an inbetwequel — that’s what I call it, for lack of a better word.”
“It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York. It’s got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.”
Setting the stage for where the film will begin: “Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power.”

The viral marketing for X-Men Days of Future Past which began at Comic Con, continues with a promo video for Trask Industries hitting the net. Trask Industries, headed by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), is the company that develops and manufactures mutant killing Sentinels. Briefly seen in X3, we’re going to get a whole lot of Sentinels come next summer when X-Men Days of Future Past hits theaters.
Following the vein of the Professor X and Magneto posters we saw unveiled earlier this week, comes a teaser poster for X-Men Days of Future Past featuring Wolverine. I really want to see Old Man Logan and Wolverine scrap. That mental image will make me happy for hours. X-Men Days of Future Past hits theaters next summer.
