Entertainment Weekly and ScreenCrush.com had two new pictures from X-Men: Days of Future Past yesterday. In these pictures we can see both The Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the midst of getting hung up and our first shot at Fox’s Quicksilver. I said Fox’s Quicksilver as in this film he will be portrayed by Evan Peters. Disney’s Quicksilver will be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It will be interesting to see how much screen time the son of Magneto (Michael Fassbender/ Ian McKellen) will get in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Synopsis: This latest chapter in 20th Century Fox's X-Men saga stars Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Jonigkeit, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry and Daniel Cudmore. Singer is back behind the camera.
Plot Concept: The film is based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
X-Men: Days of Future Past arrives May 23, 2014.
