More ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Character Portraits and Still Images Than You Ever Wanted to See

X-Men Days of Future Past Images

It seems another X-Men movie is about to come out or something? Apparently the latest one, the seventeenth in the series, is based on the Chris Claremont/John Byrne “Days of Future Past” storyline from 1980, and combines the different casts and conflicting timelines of the first three X-Men films and that of sort-of-prequel X-Men: First Class. This is extremely impressive, for not only has 20th Century Fox and director Bryan Singer translated to film the stories and characters of the enduringly popular Marvel comic books, but a version of their enduringly f***ed up continuity as well.

In the original “Days of Future Past,” the X-Men of a dystopian future send Kitty Pryde’s consciousness back in time to prevent the genocide of mutantkind by enormous robots. In the film version, they send Wolverine back in time instead, because… Wolverine.

The new images depict approximately 240 characters, some of whom are played by more than nine actors across various films and timelines, including Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Halle Berry as Storm, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, that other guy as Professor X, Ian McKellen as Magneto, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde, Fan Bingbing as Blink, Omar Sy as Bishop, Peter Dinkalge as Bolivar Trask, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver — a throwaway character who for deeply arcane legal reasons will also appear in Marvel Studios’ Avengers series, making him, paradoxically, one of the most notable Marvel heroes of all time.
