This second official trailer for this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past really ramps up the action by showing a lot of the heroes using their powers and the Sentinels looking menacing.
I think the fire guy is supposed to be the (silly) new version of Sunspot (Adan Canto). Looked like a snippet of Rogue in there, too, so maybe Anna Paquin isn’t being entirely exorcised from the theatrical version?
My favorite bit is seeing Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) armoring up, while the most disappointing had to be Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) doing his ice slide.
But the most eye-opening sequence had to be Evan Peters as Quicksilver in the scene with Magneto reclaiming his helmet! Quicksilver — also part of a rival film studio’s competing Avengers franchise — has been allowed to cross over. (In the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays the mutant speedster.) Pietro Maximoff has ties to both teams, so it makes perfect sense for him to be in both movies, but… 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios playing nice for the good of the film properties and the fans? It appears the unique crossover was made possible because the siblings were covered by the rights packages sold for both the Avengers and the X-Men.
Now that’s uncanny!
