Fox, via EW, has released the first two character posters for the newest film in the X-Men saga and director Bryan Singer’s return, X-Men: Days of Future Past. The images interlay the old and new Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto using an X as the divisor. This method, and the colour scheme is pretty epic looking.

The film follows the plot of the comics and sees characters from the current timeline travel back in time to hook up with the characters as there are in the First Class timeline as the forces of the US government in the shape of Bolivar Trask and his army of Sentinels set out to deal with the “mutant problem”.

As it’s the convergence of 2 timelines the cast for this is incredible with old and new characters mixing as never seen before. Return to the series are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Lucas Till, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, and Halle Berry.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out in Ireland on May 16th, 2014.
