The latest issue of Total Film is packed with all kinds of goodies about some of the biggest upcoming superhero movies out there. Just a little while ago we picked up on a few quotes from The Avengers: Age of Ultron star Elizabeth Olsen, who told the magazine about what we can expect from the look of the Scarlet Witch costume, and now we're getting a look at the magazine itself. Coming Soon has gotten their hands on a few scans from the publication, and in addition to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier-themed cover you can see above, they have also posted some new images from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The cover is obviously posed instead of being a still from the film and it's kind of hard to tell if Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson were even in the same room for the photo session, but it does raise a few talking points. Black Widow's costume hasn't changed very much from when we last saw her in Joss Whedon's The Avengers (though she is rocking a new hairdo), but Cap's new duds are very much that. While the idea is that the new suit is more practical for the field work that the titular hero is doing with Widow for S.H.I.E.L.D. in the movie, Marvel fans will also recognize the design from Ed Brubaker's line of "Secret Avengers" comics.
Moving on to X-Men: Days of Future Past, we actually have three new stills from the film. The one you see immediately above features a strange time-travel moment where Professor X of 1973 (played by James McAvoy) actually gets to meet Professor X of the future (played by Patrick Stewart). This was a scene previously teased in the movie's first trailer, but still something to look forward to on the big screen.
This pair of shots, which were actually cropped from the first, features three of the franchises returning characters, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). In the top image it looks like Wolverine is about to be pumped full of lead, while the latter is a more intimate moment between villains.
We don't have much time left to wait for either film, as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, will be in theaters on April 4th, while X-Men: Days of Future Past will arrive on May 23rd. Which one are you more excited for?
