We are about to post Part 2 of our SDCC wrap-up, but we had to take a break to make sure you have seen these amazing new posters for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, the sequel to the prequel that’s sort of an in-between-quell that mashes the original X-MEN films with the FIRST CLASS films using a bit of time travel trickery, Kitty Pryde and, of course, Wolverine.
To celebrate the this mashing of two franchises, Fox and co. have released their first set of posters featuring the actual cast and in them, they mash up the actors playing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy) and Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender). What’s great about this is how far the marketing department has come since X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
My, how far we have come….
So, are you happy with these new posters? Which one is your favorite? In case you missed the two “Propaganda” style posters at the San Diego Comic-Con, here they are for you to check out as well.
