I will say this, the Quicksilver in this looks pretty cool, powers wise.
Pasto - 5/1/2014, 10:06 AM
How are they going to do the whole Pietro/Magneto thing? Are they still father and son?
Tony93 - 5/1/2014, 10:12 AM
that was good
EdgyOutsider - 5/1/2014, 10:12 AM
That was intense. Sounds like First Class cast got mostly killed off. I love the X-Men movies, not so much The Last Stand and Origins but, this IS a Bryan Singer directed X-Men film. Which can only mean, it'll be epic and just flat out phenomenal.

Great clip. So he was having surgery and sacrificed his powers? Ok...

Cap was brilliant, Spidey was good, hope this turns out well too
Mrcool210 - 5/1/2014, 10:13 AM
Wait....he gave up his powers to walk? its that boring of an explanation?
Tony93 - 5/1/2014, 10:13 AM

What a joke
KananJarrus - 5/1/2014, 10:17 AM
Brilliant clip! I'm looking forward to this.
Gusto - 5/1/2014, 10:17 AM
Ok, so how does he walk?
I didn't have my sound on.
McNyagano - 5/1/2014, 10:19 AM
Intense clip but Xavier sacrificing his powers in order to walk?

whoa123 - 5/1/2014, 10:20 AM

I really hope they add an up-vote system. I want to up-vote the crap out of Lehnsien's comment.
kinghulk - 5/1/2014, 10:21 AM
they killed the entire cast of first class? no how could they do that so many good characters we will never see again.
Gusto - 5/1/2014, 10:21 AM
So he gave up his powers to
walk? Then somehow gets them back?
Well, Nomis is gonna love this.
MercwithMouth - 5/1/2014, 10:22 AM
Wow, that's some intense shit right there. And Wolvie sittin there all back of the bus and shit... Love it.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/1/2014, 10:22 AM
Can't wait till they explain Quicksilver's origin from Mags nads.

Seriously, the bloke must have banged tonnes of women in his drunken stupor.
kinghulk - 5/1/2014, 10:22 AM
why didnt they just have him use his powers to walk or something, and how on earth then does he have his powers in the future?
Gusto - 5/1/2014, 10:23 AM
It makes perfect sense...IN BIZARRO WORLD!
JoeMomma29 - 5/1/2014, 10:23 AM
I hate Singer...........
Starfox - 5/1/2014, 10:23 AM
Great Clip! Can't wait for this one!
MisterPL - 5/1/2014, 10:23 AM
Thanks for all the free footage from this movie, Fox.

Now I have even less desire to pay to see it.

There's such a thing as OVER-marketing, you know.
JoeMomma29 - 5/1/2014, 10:23 AM
@ KingHulk

Exactly but Singer will fix everything with time travel.........

Because Fox gonna Fox.
SymbioteJoker - 5/1/2014, 10:24 AM
To me this just screams that the writers didnt want to work around the fact that he would be wheelchair bound and now the tradeoff is loosing his powers. Dont get me wrong Im interested in what this movie will do but Im worried young Xavier is becoming less and less......well Xavier.
SuperDude001 - 5/1/2014, 10:25 AM
Great clip, but Xavier walking due to treatment to his DNA is the most bullshit excuse I've ever seen. Would've been far better to have have in denial and just projecting himself walking to everyone's minds (and he could still touch them, if he makes them think he's walking he could've made them think they've been touched). But oh well...way to depower Xavier just for the sake of getting McAvoy walking...still the whole death of the First Class cast is pretty good story point...don't get why it's mostly Magneto's crew though...
Brainiac13 - 5/1/2014, 10:25 AM
That was cool. I've got a feeling this will not only redeem Singer but be the best X movie so far.
MercwithMouth - 5/1/2014, 10:25 AM
Where's @dellamorte to tell everyone to boycott DOFP?
Pasto - 5/1/2014, 10:26 AM
Xavier sacrifices his powers just so he can walk...

Seems legit.
Pasto - 5/1/2014, 10:26 AM
In the hall of shame.
cipher - 5/1/2014, 10:27 AM

I'd never sacrifice booze just to walk in a straight line.
SuperDude001 - 5/1/2014, 10:28 AM
kinghulk @ He has telepathy, not telekinesis, he can't make himself walk. And he has his powers in the future (and why you probably see him in a wheelchair later) is because it's 'treatment' like medication so it's not permanent.
MercwithMouth - 5/1/2014, 10:28 AM
I think it's a fine idea to resolve Xavier this way. What I'm more interested in is whether in the future, he looks like Xavier because he's projecting that image, or if he had the Joan Rivers treatment...
SuperDude001 - 5/1/2014, 10:29 AM
Just how on Earth can even altering DNA allow him to walk temporarily?? Taking away a mind power wouldn't let him walk, if that's possibly then shave his head cause he should just lose the hair too then.
Ramiel - 5/1/2014, 10:30 AM
These two have GREAT chemistry. They alone made First Class great.
