Following 25 magazine covers featuring the characters, Empire has now released four new images from X-Men: Days of Future Past. 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. As you can see from the image showing Wolverine, he still has his bone claws. That’s because young William Stryker (played by Josh Helman) hasn’t started up the Weapon X program yet. I like that consistency in the narrative, and I wonder how much Weapon X will come up in the movie.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, and Ian McKellen. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past:
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
