X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg recently explained that he sees X-Men: Apocalypse as ending a trilogy that began with First Class, “complete the stories” of young Mystique, Beast, Magneto and Professor Xavier. These comments naturally had us worried, fearing that these four integral characters would be somehow walking off into the sunset, but fortunately Kinberg has now set the record straight.
Through X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, the mutants known as Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) have gone through a hell of a lot.

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past already in theaters, and already racking up some excellent reviews, it's time to relax and look forward to the next installment of Professor Xavier's gifted youngsters and their uncanny adventures. But before we leave behind the days of future past, there's some fun to be had with the cast. More specifically, we have a video where both James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender try to imitate their more mature selves, and the results make for quite a good laugh.
