10 Crucial Things We Learned About X-Men From The Empire Covers
Most of our day Monday was spent cataloging 25 new images of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past cast. We shared the major ones as they dropped, from a Trask shot to the first official look at Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. As we compiled the various X-photos, we learned a few interesting things about Singer’s planned time-travel sequel.
Click on over to Empire for the full gallery, but until then, here are the 10 most interesting things we picked up from the Days of Future Past imagery. Expect plenty more to be revealed as we get closer to the film’s May 23 release date.
Wolverine’s rocking the bone clawsWolverine is one of the few X-characters to receive multiple covers -- one "old" and one "young" – because of the space-time conflict at the heart of Days. The bullet holes in Logan’s chest are prevalent in this new photo. Shouldn’t they heal up almost immediately? We’ve seen those chest holes in a number of early Wolvie images.
And then there are the bone claws. As we’ve deduced, this version of Logan exists during the First Class time period, so he probably hasn’t undergone the adamantium transfer to his bones. We saw the bone claws in the forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which showed how Stryker lured Wolverine into the Weapon X program. But at the end of James Mangold’s The Wolverine, our hero was back to his bone claws. Seriously, there are timeline issues galore with this X-Men universe, and I hope Days somehow clears a few of them up.
