X-Men: Days Of Future Past - Trailer Analysis

X Men Days Of Future Past IcemanX Men Days Of Future Past ShadowcatX Men Days Of Future Past Rogue Next up, it's more character shots. This time it's Iceman, Shadowcat, and Rogue, implying that the love triangle from X-Men: The Last Stand will be brought up again. Which makes sense given that Magneto has his powers back, implying that the Cure did not work and that Rogue can't touch anyone again, causing Iceman to be drawn more to Shadowcat since he'd be able to touch her without nearly dying. Even if there's going to be a messy love triangle, it will be nice to see Ellen Page (Shadowcat) have another crack at X-Men after being a little underused in the incredibly cluttered X-Men 3. X Men Days Of Future Past Xavier 3 The shot of Xavier widens even more as he says "You're going to have to do for me what I once did for you". This is probably directed at Wolverine and references Xavier becoming a source of light and inspiration in his life, and helping him to become a better man than he was before by recruiting him into the X-Men. X Men Days Of Future Past Xavier CerebroX Men Days Of Future Past Corridor After this we get an establishing shot of the X-Mansion and some scenes inside it that appear to be set in the present or recent past, judging by the scene of the older Xavier entering Cerebro. The slightly blurred shot of the corridor might be a memory of the mansion in the 1970s or part of Xavier's glimpse into the past though.
