A leaked trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past from the Fantasia International Film Festival is floating around. We found a link that works (for now!) Take a look before it’s taken down by the studio, which probably won’t take very long at all.In case the above video is dead, here’s a breakdown:The first part shows Professor X and Magneto telling Wolverine they need to send him back in time so he can help their past selves work “side by side to end this war before it ever begins.” Xavier tells Wolverine to be patient with his past self.We see returning characters including Mystique, Storm, Rogue, Beast, and Iceman, as well as a bunch of new ones. We also get a glimpse of what I think is Cerebro — I’m honestly so confused with the time travel and continuity of the movies that I don’t know if it’s been invented yet. We’ve also got urban unrest in what might be Russia, the X-Mansion, the White House.There’s also a lot of … [Read more...] about Catch the Leaked X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer While It’s Still Leaked

Marvel movies have trained their nerd audiences well; most of us will sit through the entire credit sequence of a film before we even think about getting up to leave the theater. Now it looks like Sony and Fox, AKA the reasons Wolverine and Spider-Man will never get to hang out with Tony Stark, are hoping to capitalize on that training.But before you get all excited at the possibility of Spidey/X-Men team-ups, cool your mechanical web shooters. The movies still have nothing to do with each other (which is probably for the best, considering that they’re both packed to the literal gills with extraneous villains and supporting characters).
