The final trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was unveiled Tuesday by 20th Century Fox, showing two different generations of mutants fighting for survival, with the spotlight on Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman.
The final trailer reveals more about Wolverine’s mission to go back in time to the 1970s, when he joins forces with Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy, and Erik Lehnsherr, better known as Magneto, played by Michael Fassbender. In order to save the future, Wolverine needs to reunite the two, who have taken different paths since their first meeting a decade ago. Magneto is also played by Ian McKellen and Xavier by Patrick Stewart in a different time period.
Adapted by Chris Claremont from one of the most popular comic-book story lines, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” follows Matthew Vaughn’s 2011 prequel “X-Men: First Class” and Bryan Singer’s original “X-Men” in 2000.
