    I love it.

    Hank though...image inducer or temporary cure? I guess we'll find out in a year. :)

    I am thinking temporary cure. He would have no reason for a disguise in private with them. Plus the location photo of him in makeup was very public, where you would think he would want a disguise.

    Xavier could be projecting an illusion of normal Hank McCoy to everyone.

    I'd much rather a Jekyll/Hyde sort of thing be going on, and eventually Jekyll loses. :rommie:

    I think it's a temporary cure and a way to lead back into X2, where there was that scene in the background of a human Hank.

    Well, he can always lose after the first film.

    Didn't we already see a shot just like this image, but at a different angle and only showing Hank and Logan?

    The funny thing would be if Xavier's hair is an illusion he himself is projecting!

    @Set Harth...yes. That was a set pic, this is a promotional still. The camera was also in the set pic, we can probably assume the two of them were talking with Xavier. Logan looked like he didn't have a clue where he was in that set pic, so perhaps this is shortly after he has been sent back.

    Isn't that a little weird, though? If it's his mind from the future, the setting should look a bit familiar...

    Apparently Kitty is guiding him somehow and they botch the plan according to that link that Turtletrekker posted a while back, so perhaps his mind is attempting to adjust from disorientation due to time displacement?

    Maybe this kind of fits in this thread.. Someone morphed pictures of Stewart&McAvoy and McKellen&Fassbender together: http://imgur.com/a/1IB5P

    I'd say it's rather... uncanny.

    You can see there that Fassbender and McKellan have similar features, but McAvoy's facial features look much more "aggressive" or "stressed" than Stewart's. Kinda like the difference between George Takei and John Cho. One reason why I never really liked the choice for young Xavier.
