X-Men: Days of Future Past Pictures and SPOILER from The Wolverine
Portraits have been released at this year’s San Diego Comic Con of some of the characters from 2014′s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The ones getting the most buzz were the (welcome) return of Colossus and the appearance of Bishop, played by Omar Sy.
Additionally, footage was shown from the upcoming Hugh Jackman film The Wolverine. Genre films are notorious for having short scenes during or just after the closing credits. What was shown was a bridge scene between The Wolverine and Days of Future Past. This comes via Garth Franklin at Dark Horizons. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled!
“Two years after the events in The Wolverine, Logan is walking through an airport waiting in line for the metal detector. A Trask Industries promo (can’t recall if it’s either a news report or commercial) is playing on the TV screens in the airport.
Just as he gets to the detector, coins and other metal bits around him start levitating. He realizes someone is behind him and spins around. A man in a black trench and hat slowly lifts his head – it’s Ian McKellen as Magneto. A Magneto who seems to have his power back.
Magneto then tells him that something is coming that could destroy all mutant kind and wants him to join the fight. Logan turns him down, saying why should he join him. It’s then he realises all the noise and people around him have stopped moving.
Patrick Stewart’s Professor X in his wheelchair rolls through the airport around the frozen people and up to Logan. A disbelieving Logan asks him, ‘How is this possible?’ Xavier replies with a reference back to the first film – ‘Like I told you before, you’re not the only one with gifts.’ Cut to black.”
