What, those fuzzy images I screen-grabbed from the 7-second X-Men: Days of Future Past Instagram video werenít enough for you? Well, la-dee-dah, you Fancy Pants mutant lover. Fine. We now have a series of much better, higher-quality images from Empire that will help tide you over until the full trailer for director Bryan Singerís upcoming sequel arrives next week Ė Tuesday, Oct. 29, to be exact.

We donít get a look at anything really different in these images. We still see signature characters from the First Class and original X-Men universes, starting with Hugh Jackmanís Wolverine (at the very top) to Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Mystique, Magneto and young Professor Charles Xavier, respectively.

Thereís a longer list of anticipated Days of Future Past elements that we havenít seen yet, and still hope to when the long trailer finally comes out. The number one item on that list would be Sentinels, of course. Quicksilver and Bolivar Trask are on that list, as well. Singer has teased what his towering, mutant-hunting robots are going to look like, but we need to see them in action on screen, and not hidden in smoke, like Brett Ratner tried in his cutesy Danger Room sequence from The Last Stand.



Singerís return to the X-Men universe plays off the immensely popular Days of Future Past storyline, which takes place in two different time periods (and will allow Fox to use its entire arsenal of on-screen mutant actors). In this version, based on what weíve been lucky enough to see, an older Wolverine (Jackman) will be sent back to the 1970s by Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) to interact with a younger Professor X (McAvoy) to prevent the rise of a powerful villain who could bring about the end of humanity. Itís a hefty story, and Singerís challenge will be finding room (and screen time) for every hero. Look for the trailer next week, and the movie in theaters on May 23, 2014.
