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.

Vulture scored a new summary of the plot of X-Men: Days of Future Past as well as confirmed that Peter Dinklage HAS been cast as Bolivar Trask (creator of the mutant-hunting Sentinels) and Josh Helman will be playing a younger version of William Stryker (whom Brian Cox played so well in X2). This comes on the heels of Bryan Singer confirming that Lucas Till will be returning from X-Men: First Class as Havok. Vulture’s plot summary:
“Ellen Page returns as Kitty from the Brett Ratner–directed X-Men: The Last Stand, but this time she uses her powers to send Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine back into the past, where he encounters the younger mutants played by James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender. However, something bad happens to Kitty during the time-travel trance, and while Wolverine is still under her spell, the other X-Men must race to find a mutant who can siphon Kitty’s powers and bring their friend back to the future.”
Whahuh? This hurts my mind. I’m also still kind of freaked out by how many mutants are in this cast. How can you do justice to this many characters? There are over 20 confirmed! Bryan Singer’s got a juggling act on his hands. We’ll see the results when X-Men: Days of Future Past opens next summer.
