Comic Book Movie Buzz: X-Men Days of Future Past gets an epic final trailer

20TH Century Fox released a final trailer last night for the X-Men Days of Future Past movie set for release on May 23, 2014. In it we get a bit more backstory about what Wolverine has been sent back to do and how he goes about doing it.

MY THOUGHTS (some SPOILERS):

Ok, I have had my reservations about this movie even though I have been extremely excited for many months at the prospects. This trailer looks fantastic! Again, as with almost every X-Men movie to this date, Wolverine appears to be the central focus of the storyline as he is sent back in time to get Charles Xavier to rectify a wrong. We don’t know what that wrong was yet.

This through-line is somewhat divergent from the end of X-Men First Class, but I assume will find out more once the movie comes out. The action looks apocryphal and Magneto appears to be a greater threat to society then in previous films. There is no minimization of the mutant powers here.

I don’t want to go on too much, but I can’t wait to watch this with a big bag of popcorn and a smuggled-in bottle of water.

How do you feel about this trailer? Do you think too much of the storyline has been exposed?

GEEK: FIRST LOOK AT QUICKSILVER IN AGE OF ULTRON

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been sighted on the Italian set for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Note the greyish-white hair, but NO GOOGLES! My thought is that they may explain his speed enhancements are some sort of super-soldier experiment gone wrong or time “phasing” that allows him to appear as though he is moving extremely fast. Either way, they are going to use science to try to explain it.

Jeremy Renner has also been spotted in Italy and it looks like there was some surreptitiousness associated with this picture.
