Empire Magazine have declared this week all about X-Men: Days of Future Past. Kicking things off with their reveal of 25 character covers, including our first look at the newest Sentinel, Mark X, Empire is slowing sharing more and more tantalizing bits from the most epic X-Men movie ever. Today they’ve released four new photos, like the one of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) above. (more…)

My understanding is what we’ve got here is the same footage as what was screened in Hall H for FOX’s panel at SDCC, at least part of it. This very short clip, which appeared on YouTube earlier today only to be promptly pulled by FOX’s lawyers, then later uploaded to a more dubious video hosting site, is the very beginning of the footage screened at Comic Con.

Give the blurry, bald head of Charles Xavier a click in order to view the footage. Do it now! Before it’s taken down again! [Note: only click play, don’t bother installing whatever crap they try and trick you into.]

Xmen days of future past

So far, the majority of the announced cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past have been returning mutants, but what about new mutants. Well hint, hint, Bryan Singer‘s dropped a little knowledge on us this morning in the form of a Vine video. The 6-second clip from the social networking site reveals several directors chairs with the names of various X-Men characters on them. So we get to see names like “Magneto,” “Storm,” “Kitty Pryde,” “Bobby ‘Iceman’ Drake,” and… Wait, what’s that? “Bishop,” and “James ‘Warpath’ Proudstar?!

To the uninitiated, Warpath is the brother of John Proudstar, a mutant who went by the code name Thunderbird and joined the X-Men after the original team was kidnapped by Krakoa, the living island. Thunderbird was killed on another mission a short time later, but his brother James would go on to join the upstart mutant group X-Force. Bishop, meanwhile, is a refugee from the future where mutants were rounded up into concentration camps by Sentinels. After being liberated, Bishop joined a group of mutant cops only to end up going back in time to the 20th century during the pursuit of a mutant fugitive.

So who’s playing Bishop and Warpath? Well, French actor Omar Sy was already rumored to be playing Bishop in the film, and Booboo Stewart, by virtue of being Native American, is probably a safe bet for Warpath.

Days of Future Past is currently in production for a July 18, 2014 release. The film co-stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.

It looks like everything we want to hear on the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to be coming straight from Bryan Singer — or at least his Twitter page.

After revealing that Wolverine mainstay Hugh Jackman would return for yet another franchise film, the director has once again taken to the social media outlet to announce the return of Xavier School alumni Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore. This could be a future indication of what we’re going to see in Days of Future Past as Page’s role as Kitty Pryde is essential to the overall storyline and the beginning of what many Marvel fans will know from the comic’s storyline.
