@Pasto

I thought since all the x-men in the future were getting their butss kicked, that they were made up of non-magnetic materials.

Otherwise couldn't Magneto just crush them every time?

That looks epic.
Brainiac13 - 5/5/2014, 3:26 PM
I would love to see a X-Men TV series......separate universe....so they can use all the characters.

according to frodo singer,the sentinels are made from magnetized metal plates.

it makes sense if you think about it.

x-men first class-during the 60s magneto controls nuclear weapons almost starting world war 3.

x-men days of future past-set in the 70s they decide to start a sentinel program to control mutants that by the look of things from the trailer magneto takes control of.

then we come to the x-men trilogy were magneto is still a massive threat to mankind.

back to x-men days of future past-the future,the sentinels look like they have destroyed everything in their path,however they evolved so much from the 70s models that they are still made of magnetized metal plates & from the look of that poster,magneto still has the ability to destroy them.

they've got geniuses working on the sentinel program past & future.

Magneto can't control future sentinels, that's a sentinel spaceship that he's destroying.

Xmen >>>> Avengers, this is the comic book movie most real comic book fans have been waiting for

"Avengers, this is the comic book movie most real comic book fans have been waiting for"

lol no, Batman vs Superman is the CBM that most comic book fans have been waiting for. This isn't up for debate mate.

I've been waiting to pick the shit apart for awhile. DOFP was one of my fav storylines.

Dammit not again

@ McNyagano

so being called the master of magnetism means jack shit,you can't takeout sentinels because they're made of a substance that you can't control(magnetized metal plates)but takeout one of their spacecrafts which is more than likely made of metal.

freaking awesome.
MercwithMouth - 5/5/2014, 4:03 PM
McKellan is a legend. This looks awesome.
McNyagano - 5/5/2014, 4:06 PM
@Marvel

The future sentinels can adapt. The Sentinels themselves have defenses against Magneto. Remember the one Iceman freezes? It adopts Sunspots powers and the one Colossus fights adapts his powers well and uses them against the mutants. That pic could be a sentinel spaceship or it could be the X-men jet, dunno for sure. Will find out next week.

"Xmen >>>> Avengers, this is the comic book movie most real comic book fans have been waiting for"

That would actually be the Justice League; Days of Future Past comes third in what a comic book fan actually want to see adapted (second being Wonder Woman, which is amazing why it is taking this long to happen).
