What actually will happen on Monday remains a bit of a mystery but it seems like Singer wants to create a bit of a buzz for it.
"Some of the footage is familiar, and there is a considerable amount of (Michael) Fassbender doing his 'I am crushing you with my brain' face," Entertainment Weekly wrote
. "But there are a couple of notable new revelations. First: Jennifer Lawrence will do for the early '70s what she did for the late '70s in 'American Hustle.' Second: Evan Peters is actually in this movie! You can get a quick glance at Magneto's son Quicksilver, wearing what appears to be some kind of police uniform."
The snippet also shows a White House under duress, Hugh Jackson's Wolverine wrapped up and sinking, new X-Men Warpath, played by Booboo Stewart; Sunspot, played Adan Canto; and Blink, portrayed by Fan Bingbing, going to battle, and a young Professor Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy, using his brain power.
"That's a whopping total of nine new shots revealed in the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' teaser, all revealed in just a matter of seconds," wrote MTV
. "If Singer and his team are able to pack that much goodness in just a handful of seconds, there's no telling what's in store when the curtain is pulled back even further next week."
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be packed with mutants as the cast from the original X-Men movies join with the "X-Men: First Class" cast in the summer blockbuster. The large cast includes Fassbender, McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Lawrence, Jackman, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, and Ellen Page.
