Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Wow. Just... wow.

I'm still in disbelief this is actually happening. I never thought I would see the day where not only Bryan Singer would return to the X-Men universe, but we'd see an adaptation of one of my favorite comic-book storylines. Not to mention combining the cast of the original films with the First Class cast. The idea of seeing Stewart as Xavier, McKellen as Magneto, etc. again is pretty amazing.

As for the trailer, I thought it was quite excellent. I loved the emphasis on character, and I thought it was surprisingly emotional. It didn't have the action spectacle I thought it was going to have, but I'm sure they are saving that (and the reveal of the Sentinels) for the next trailer. It makes perfect sense to have a more character-oriented first trailer - after all, the big appeal of this movie is having the two casts together. The action and the spectacle comes second (as it should).

It's going to be a very long wait until May 2014.
