20th Century Fox has released twenty-three new images of X-Men: Days of Future Past character art. The story finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. This art use the same images as the ones from the Empire Magazine covers we saw a few months back. The only thing that’s different is that the backgrounds are different and the Empire text is gone. There were twenty-five posters for Empire; the missing two from this set: director Bryan Singer (no surprise) and Rogue (slight surprise), although it looks like she probably has a brief cameo in the finale cut.
Hit the jump to check out the character art. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past:
