Following a big panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con International, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” has revealed the first two of what’s sure to be many promotional posters for next summer’s mutant movie. With a big enough cast to fill three different films, odds are this movie will have enough posters to make “The Wolverine” blush.
But right now there are two “Days of Future Past” promo posters, and as far as I’m concerned, they’re enough. The two images feature black and white portraits of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart with colored X’s centered over their left eyes, with images of Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy contained within. Magneto and Professor X are the only characters in the film to have two actors play them, so odds are the rest of the “Days of Future Past” posters will go down a different route – unless Kelsey Grammer or Rebecca Romijn sign on.
Check out the posters below!
If these were the only two posters released for the film (which there is zero chance they will be), I’d be fine with that. They get across the film’s time-travel plot, they’re designed well and feel iconic. They’re great, and they are so ridiculously better than the Photoshop disasters that were “X-Men: First Class’” first posters.
It’s also shocking just how similar Fassbender and McAvoy look to McKellen and Stewart when arranged this way. The actors actually look like they could age into their older counterparts, and that’s without the benefits of “Looper”-style prosthetics!
