Viral Marketing Begins for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: Trask Industries’ Sentinels will protect us!

If you haven’t seen THE WOLVERINE yet, then you haven’t seen the mid-credits teaser scene which means you haven’t seen the first glimpse for the viral marketing for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.  On a TV in the background you can see a commercial for Trask Industries and for us comic geeks, that was extremely exciting?  Exciting as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) at the end of IRON MAN or Thanos at the end of THE AVENGERS? No, but X-Men fans everywhere rejoiced because we knew one thing: Trask Industries = Sentinels.

At the SDCC, you had the change to see a model of the Sentinel heads and while the viral site had gone live, there wasn’t much content.  That all changed today.  Trask Industries is live and full of all sort of goodies.  Below is several images from the site as well as the commercial seen at the end of THE WOLVERINE as well as some of the loops from the website.  I highly suggest you check out the site as well so that you can catch your first glimpse of the Mutant Detection Devices and the Inhibitor Collars that were so prominent in the comics.

So check out everything below including some really good looks at Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask, the inventor of the mutant hunting Sentinels.  Let us know what you think in the comments below.
