    Huh. Looks a little Nimrod-esque.

    "Future sentinel"? Is that meant to be Nimrod? Interesting.

    Most of those are pretty cool. The only ones that I'm iffy on are Toad and Quicksilver. I'm wondering if there is going to be an explanation for Toad, or they'll just not address it either way? At this point I'm thinking it will probably depend on how prominent his character is. Not quite sure what to make of Quicksilver, he is a little cheesy looking. Most of the others I really like. Some people are ripping on the future Sentinel, but it doesn't bother me.
    At this point I'm dying to see the Age of Ultron Quicksilver's character design, just to compare.

    Explanation for what? He's not that different to the Park version. Just he had a different hairstyle when he was young.

    Even if it's only "okay", it'll still look awesome compared to this one. :)

    Grading on a curve is awesome.

    ^No. Different studios, different takes on the character.

    Is DOFP's Quicksilver even going to be the same character as the character implied to be Quicksilver in X-Men Origins: Wolverine?

    ^^^^
    Was that character ever specifically mentioned by name in the film as Peitro or Quicksilver? I only recall seeing him tied down and escaping with the others.

    I think there's a general rule of thumb that any character not specifically named in that movie is free to be retconned.

    Remember. we both saw Wanda and Pietro Maximoff's names in Strkyer's datafile that Mystique stole from Stryker in "X2". I'm sure that Singer has had plans of some kind for both of them since at least that film.

    He also showed Alison Blaire (Dazzler) but unfortunately haven't seen her.

    I'd love to se her and Rogue fight on screen like in the comics. Rogue always seemed to win.

    I wouldn't read to much into that. It was an alphabetical list, and Mystique was looking for "Lensher". "L" is just before "M".

    Sure. The database names were a nice Easter Egg. Project WideAwake was mentioned in that database too and now we're getting Sentinels. I'm not suggesting that we do take anything from that database, just was pointing out that we've seen the twins mentioned in a Singer X-Men film before.

    I can see why people are saying that the Quicksilver costume is naff. But I imagine that it's deliberately so. 70s clothing and style was often naff, particularly in comic books. I like that they've done it this way.

    I think the goggles on Quicksilvers costume are probably to protect his eyes. At the speed he travels there would probably be a lotta dust particles and whatnot getting in his eyes otherwise.

    Sucks that his mutation can't compensate for that.

    Quite a few mutants have good with the bad, so that wouldn't surprise me.
