Even though the CIA and the X-Men parted on less-than-amicable terms at the end of X-Men: First Class (that can happen when half of your agents get killed by mutants because you were working with mutants), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) never gives up on humanity. Director Bryan Singer has tweeted a new set photo from X-Men: Days of Future Past showing a CIA file for Professor X’s Oxford University Thesis on Human Genetic Mutation. The file is dated 1973, so either Xavier gave them the file willingly, or the CIA just decided to boost it from Oxford. I like to think it’s the former, and that the file also contains tips on how nerdy geneticists can pick up chicks in bars.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Peter Dinklage. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
