X-Men Viral Video Teases Upcoming Days Of Future Past Trailer

Here’s a story. Of a mutant named Wolvie. Who was bringing up three very lovely X-Men!

One week from today, apparently, we’ll be treated to a new, full-length trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Play it above, from its official Instagram page.

And now I just want to see an episode of Hollywood Squares with the cast of X-Men. Who would be funnier? Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, or the pairing of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in the center square? Make that happen, Fox!

Bishop gets to wield his massive gun. Storm is there. What does that mean?! Really, we just want to see the full trailer. It has to deliver more footage than what we saw here, right?

Need to pass the days until the trailer arrives next Monday? Lucky for you, we recently published our complete guide to Singer’s pending sequel, breaking down every major character in the past and future for the new X-Men movie. The sequel will be in theaters on May 23.
