James McAvoy's 'Charles Xavier' Is The Focus Of Latest X-MEN: DOFP Power Piece

This latest character bio vid for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past puts the younger version of Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in the spotlight. There's quite a few snippets of new footage, some of it perhaps a tad SPOILERY.

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.

X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender,, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page & Booboo Stewart. The film hits theaters May 23, 2014.

I know I sound like a broken record, but that new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer needs to drop soon.
AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:41 PM
I mean, the only news I've actually cared about over the past few weeks has been the Batsuit reveal and the small bits of MCU news.
AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:42 PM
Can anyone else sympathize?
AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:44 PM
I bet everyone is at Godzilla right now.
XelCorp - 5/15/2014, 6:45 PM
@Alexander^^^- don't worry man you're not the only one. Everything has been quiet for Guardians so far. I'm expecting a trailer within the next few weeks, like I mean it has to be. It would be great if we could get it next week with DOFP but we should have atleast gotten some kind of confirmation by now, unless Marvel are planning I surprise us and it just drops out of no where...
XelCorp - 5/15/2014, 6:46 PM
to surprise us*******
SuperCat - 5/15/2014, 6:47 PM
Get a haircut, hippie! Two weeks to go :)
AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:47 PM
I know right? The trailer would be classified by now. I'm sad as heck.
AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:48 PM
Hopefully you're right.
incepshawn - 5/15/2014, 6:49 PM
Guardians trailer will likely drop next month. Typical timing for a Marvel trailer.
Ranger14 - 5/15/2014, 6:49 PM
Why does McAvoy have to annoy me so much. :-(
MrCBM56 - 5/15/2014, 6:51 PM
Godzilla was such a disappointment.


Anyways this movie looks fantastic. I can't wait.

AlexanderLykins - 5/15/2014, 6:52 PM
With what movie? Maleficent?
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/15/2014, 6:54 PM
So Charles somehow traveled to the future? That's kitty projecting energy at his temples in the clip right...
XelCorp - 5/15/2014, 6:57 PM
@AgentEX- Next month (June) seems a little to long imo. James Gunn had said a while back that Trailer #2 would be released in a "couple of months". I'm pretty sure he said that back in Febuary early March some correct me if I'm wrong. That was a while ago so umm guessing it should be around this time (any moment). X-men is also the last major CBM to come out before Guardians so I think it would be a wise choice for them to attach the new trailer to DOFP (Hopefully)

Magneto is so awesome
ManCalledSting - 5/15/2014, 7:01 PM
Oh look, GoldenOne is praising this movie to be great and amazing. Then he'll claim it's garbage, and troll every thread there is about this movie. Much like he did/does still on ASM2 threads.
KallarkKent - 5/15/2014, 7:05 PM
Looking great, one more week!

Godzilla? meh, X-MEN will own the summer.
SummersEssex - 5/15/2014, 8:50 PM

I really hope you're right.
Sunnyd - 5/15/2014, 9:38 PM
My bad I thought James was portraying a young Prof X not

SecNotSure - 5/15/2014, 10:13 PM
Yawn. I'm kind of getting tired of the X-Men oversaturation. It better be a great movie considering how much they've promoted it.

And Gojira was amazing! Just like a classic Godzilla vs. movie. And that atomic breath? Damn. King of the Monsters indeed.

BrowniesExplode - 5/15/2014, 10:49 PM
Why didn't they just have Hank make Charles leg braces and himself a image projector like in the comics
MARVELFAN1995 - 5/16/2014, 12:02 AM
Did anyone else notice that it has "Illusion casting" as one of his abilities? I think that's the spoiler @RorMachine was referring to. My guess is that Professor X from the present is actually an illusion that he casted.. I may be wrong but it's my theory....
SaxoWolf - 5/16/2014, 5:03 AM
I'm pumped for this one. Already bought tickets for Godzilla too. My wallet is getting crushed this year.
jimoakley666 - 5/16/2014, 5:27 AM
Trolls all over this thread...
jimoakley666 - 5/16/2014, 5:28 AM
Loving the scene with Magneto ripping up the rails behind a moving train.
ManCalledSting - 5/16/2014, 6:17 AM
You got me GoldenOne, you got me. I'll see you in a while after this movie comes out, and you'll be hating it hardcore.
