..... Sigh I know that. But its unlikely they would have built that same cell so early. It was built just for him.

How do we know it wasn't built in the 70s?

^Exactly. There's no reason the cell from the original films couldn't have been used before, if that's part of the character's background. At the end of the original film, I wondered how the authorities knew enough about Magneto at that point to make such a cell for him. It would seem that they've had previous dealings with him.

All they need to know is "this guy controls metal" to get the idea.

Also we have no idea WHY he's in prison or what facility is holding him. From the looks of the rest of the stills and the fast cut trailer he obviously is either released or escapes since we see him in costume later on and he steals his helmet from the "mutant museum" or whatever that place is that Singer teased.

Brian Singer did a Twitter chat where he answered fan's questions earlier today.

The most interesting answer he gave was the one with the characters he wants to use and ones he can't mention yet. I predict he'll be involved in another film after Days, possibly X4...or something similar. Can't wait for the trailer tomorrow. It'll be online tomorrow morning at 6 AM PST.

I thought it was interesting that two of the characters he did mention were in XO: Wolverine.

Are there any practical jokers among the stars of Days of Future Past?
Yes. Two words. James McAvoy.
Well, he's just method acting to try and better resemble Patrick Stewart

Fantastic trailer.

One very small complaint: I would have liked to have a line or two from Peter Dinklage.

Aww I was hoping to see a quick shot of the Sentinels, but I guess some of their FX work isn't ready yet. Awesome trailer though! I guess this one focuses on Xavier.

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.

I think this was one of the best trailers I have seen in a long, long time! I am thrilled about everything we know about this movie.
