The Past Meets the Future in First Posters for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST [Updated with Hi-Res Versions]

     July 22, 2013


Hands down the best panel I saw at Comic-Con this year was for director Bryan Singer’s ambitious sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Not only did the footage look great, but the Q&A with nearly the entire cast made for a funny, engaging, and earnest conversation.  Singer and many of the actors onstage—including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, and Patrick Stewart—made the trek to Comic-Con over a decade ago with the first X-Men film, and now they were making a triumphant return the place where it all started.  Everyone onstage seemed genuinely grateful to the fans for embracing them all those years ago, and the panel fittingly ended with a standing ovation.  In celebration of the Comic-Con appearance, Fox has now unveiled a couple of swell posters for the film, which tease the time-travel element of the story as we see the different versions of Professor X (Stewart and James McAvoy) and Magneto (McKellan and Michael Fassbender).

Hit the jump to check out the posters, click here to read our panel recap, and click here to watch the panel yourself (sans footage, of course).  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on May 16, 2014.

    These are amazing. I have never been as excited for a film as this. X-Men craps all over the other comic movies

    • agree

      yeah the third movie crapped over all the people who has seen it.

      • Strong Enough


      • LEM

        The first Wolverine movie ate that crap and crapped out a more crap filled crap.

      • dude

        hahaa, nice.

      • Strongenoughsmom

        You know what crapped, ate that crap, shat out more crap ate that crap and then busted it’s ORING to shit out that crap? Acts one to two to three of Dark Knight Rises. Right Strong? You dumb fucking inbred.


    the difference in quality between these and the first posters for x men first class is astounding. these are great

    • Josiah Coulter

      That’s because Bryan Singer is back on board. This is going to be the best X-Men yet.

      • sammy

        Or as tedious as ever

      • Agent777

        Hit the nail on the head my friend.

        He was already back, he also wrote X-Men First Class!

  • Joseph M

    Love these posters.

  • Travis Gowen

    Both are amazing but the Magneto poster looks as close to a young/old comparison as one could ever do.

    • Beatific

      The Magneto one works really well.

  • Prasanna Rajan

    These posters are much, much better than ‘X-Men: First Class’ posters.

    • Btbcc12859

      Agreed, way better than the refelection posters they did for First class

  • sense11

    Those are nice

  • Person

    Love these posters. Is it just me, or does Fassbender/McKellan look a bit like Ralph Fiennes?

  • MCP

    !! Heck yea, want posters of those already. Is it May yet…??!!

  • Ryan Donnell

    This makes the First Class posters look so terrible. However, shows the poster doesn’t sell the movie. First Class was an excellent movie. I hope this can build on that.

  • FE

    Grand Moff Tarkin

  • Al Conyado

    These are absolutely brilliant, cannot wait to get one for my wall, both of them!

  • Al Conyado

    at first glance it looks like Ming the Merciless, the patrick stewart one

  • jeff

    wow I cant wait for this I know a lot about comic storylines but days of future past is the only one I have read and even though im sure they would keep the going to hell bit out out of it I really cant wait for this

  • Redjester

    Great posters, but it does seem to show just how little the actors look alike.

    • Nerdgasm

      I think you are blind. The facial expression and creases of their faces line up almost perfectly. The jowls don’t only cause Stewart and McKellan are old and have drooped skin. But in vien of the characters they are pretty close.

  • Agent777

    Guess Mcavoy isn’t the type of actor who sacrifices his hair for a movie.
