Alright so we finally have an official major poster for the two month away X-Men: Days of Future Past, and honestly, it just feels soooo disappointing. I think that the first thing I need to address is clearly, why does Professor X look like he is blasting off into space? Horrible positioning of him and the flames below. Then, I think it’s stupid that they placed Mystique as one of the largest characters on the poster when she probably doesn’t have that huge of a roll in the film compared to…umm, maybe Fassbender as Magneto?! I think that’s pretty frustrating, if only it could be the young Magneto next to Wolverine.
I honestly would have just preferred to see them mimic the classic Days of Future Past comic cover, which I’ll post below. It would have been at least a little cool to see the cast framed in the head shots, sigh… Hey, at least they decided to keep Evan Peters’ Quicksilver off of this; that honestly would have made this one of the worst posters ever.
Well, it’s only a poster, and the movie should still be awesome, so it’s not the end of the world. Here’s the original DoFP comic cover.
