X-Men: Days of Future Past Tries Really Hard, One Last Time, to Get Us to Like Quicksilver

The final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past landed on the Internet today, and it include an extended sequence of Quicksilver in action. From everything I’ve heard about his limited role in this film, I’m fairly certain FOX is just playing up Quicksilver as much as possible to get ahead of Avengers 2. From Day One, FOX has really tried to stick it to Marvel using Quicksilver.

See for yourself.

From what I’ve read online, Quicksilver is only going to be used to help break Magneto out of prison, as you can see in that trailer. They’re not even going to reference the fact that, in the comics, Quicksilver is Magneto’s son. His parentage not going to come up in the movie. He has this one scene and then I believe he’s out of the film.

But as you can see, he’s the focal point of the final trailer.

Though something tells me that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to win out in the end.

Personally, I think Days of Future Past could be a lot of fun, but it also looks like a lot of…everything. There’s so much stuff going on in this trailer. Dozens of new mutants, complicated time travel, Sentinels, Iceman, the joining of the two X-franchises; part of me fears this is all just going to be a hot mess.

  1. Why does Puck seem like an evil scientist? Shouldn’t Hank be blue? It seems like enough time may have passed after first class that they should’ve had a sequel before this mess.

    • Because Peter Dinklidge is not playing Puck, he’s Bolivar Trask, inventor of the Sentinels. And I guess we’re going to find out why Hank isn’t blue anymore.

      • I didn’t realize Dinklage would be playing Trask. He’s not particularly short, so I just thought Peter might just be playing a messed up version of a character whose height would be similar. Not that he can’t play someone who’s usually taller, he’s awesome and he’s probably great in the role.
