A Look at Magneto Toys from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     April 1, 2013


Bryan Singer has tweeted a new set photo from his upcoming film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Singer refers to the torture implements on display as “Magneto toys”, which is a bit confusing because isn’t anything made of metal a toy for Magneto?  Also, it appears that torture tools do indeed come as kits because you see the same line up of tools in almost every movie torture scene.   There has to be a place where you can go and say, “Yes, one torture kit, please,” and it will inevitably contain pliers, hooks, and other tools that you would find in a dentist’s office (except for the knives; if your dentist’s office has knives, you’re probably not in a real dentist’s office).

Hit the jump to check out the full image.  The film stars James McAvoyMichael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick StewartIan McKellanHugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Peter DinklageX-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.

    Shut up, Goldberg. Not every article needs your cynicism.

    Well, surgical equipment is readily available in kits considering the equipment is required by every hospital. So, yes one can get the trays full of torture equipment rather easily.

    I love your wit.

    Wow Goldberg, you’re hilarious! Are you prepared to bring your wit to stand-up? Or are you too scared you’ll bomb on-stage so you revert to snark to overcompensate for your fear of failure?

    For once, Goldberg has a point. See Walking Dead Governor torture kit. It’s always, hilariously, a detailed kit, when one big sharp knife can do all that. Yet another movie cliche.

    It does make me wonder how villainous Magneto’s going to be here. The rumor is Bolivar Trask makes Sentinels to kill mutants, so X-men go back in time to stop him somehow. Maybe Magneto’s not all bad then.

      I don’t think Magneto has ever been “all bad”

  • Danny

    Shut up Goldberg, you’re not being funny.

      I think it was an attempt at sarcasm rather than humour. Difficult to tell around here sometimes, though.
