I saw that earlier today. I always love it when directors/writers/ect. do stuff like that.

The stuff set in the '70s looks pretty decent, but the future stuff is really rough. This:



Looks like something out of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

According to Bryan Singer, Kitty is still involved in the time travel process. Logan is chosen because he's the only one strong enough to endure the time travel "procedure", which is apparently very painful.
Which, of course, was written that way to have Wolverine travel back in time, not the other way around.
It wouldn't make sense for Kitty to travel back in time with the movie's timeline. I don't think Kitty was even born in 1973.
specially since it looks like the future portions of the film will be in 2023.

They could easily have used a different form of time travel than the "travel back into your own body" kind if they'd wanted Kitty to be the main character. It's Wolverine because the Hugh Jackman Wolverine is the most popular character in the movies.

It's a double-edged sword (at least for me). On one hand I do hate how Wolverine is seemingly the focal point of all the stories, but on the other hand I really enjoy Jackman's performance and he at least makes it worthwhile.

Or they could change the time travel rules.

They should have just done a Terminator sequel instead of an X-Men film. Why even call it "Days of Future Past"?

Or maybe because he's the only character who wouldn't have significantly aged since 1973.

Except they have to change something. They can either change the character who is the main character of the story or they can change the rules for time travel.

I noticed the credits say.... Hugh Jackman... X-Men: Days of Future's Past... James McAvoy... Michael Fassbender...

Hopefully it's just because of his name recognition and not because everyone else is getting shafted in another Wolverine-centric movie.

Yup. Which is kind of a shame because how shocking would it be for audiences to Wolverine vaporized in the middle of the first act, and then let Kitty be the actual time traveler?

Actually, didn't the 90s X-Men series make it an actual Terminator-style traveling back in time rather than "inhabiting your younger self" when they adapted the story?

So, is that supposed to be President Nixon in the trailer? Because if there's one thing I don't see enough of in superhero flicks, it's Richard Nixon.
He's already met The Doctor. Why not the X-Men, too?

Given that it's Bryan Singer, I expect it to be more of an ensemble, even if Wolverine gets quite a bit of screen time. Not much point doing the story if it's nothing but "Wolverine's Time Traveling Hijinks: The Movie."

OK, I totally missed that 70's Logan is still rocking the bone claws! I did wonder how he hoped to convince 70's Magneto to do anything he didn't want to, now I know.
