WATCH: MTV reveals the opening scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past

April 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

In our second X-Men: Days of Future Past story of the day (sorry, but this is how it goes sometimes) we get a look at a very intense battle scene – rumoured – to open the movie.

Featuring, among others, Sunspot, Kitty Pride, Bishop and Iceman fighting a Sentinel McX, this looks pretty strong stuff… but will it convince any naysayers?


Mutants are on the verge of extinction. Sending Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time seems to be like the mutants’ last hope, even though it was Kitty in the comics. But when Logan arrives in the 1970s, things aren’t much better. Magneto is coming into his evil power and Charles Xavier is not the man he was in X-Men: First Class, he is broken physically and mentally.

They must unite if mutants are to stand a chance.

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.

Bryan Singer has managed to gather an impressive cast which includes James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released in theaters on May 22nd, 2014 in the UK and May 23rd in the US

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
