All information is based on the trailers I have seen (I don’t watch them all due to spoilers), older movies, mainstream interviews, knowledge of comics, and other stuff. There will be very little spoilers but if I feel they are a spoiler they will be marked in BOLDED RED. — Shadow
Basic Plot: The future for mutants, and seemingly humans too, is terrible, as these robot mutant killer things called Sentinels have essentially killed everything. So, they send Wolverine’s mind back in time to his younger body (comic books man) to change the past by recruiting Magneto and Xavier and Co. from the First Class movies. And fix all the continuity holes in the process.
Yeah, that isn’t very basic lol.
Main Characters: Old Magneto, Young Magneto, Old Xavier, Young Xavier, Old Wolverine, Young Wolverine, Young Beast, Young Mystique, Boliver Trask, Early Sentinels, New Sentinels
More Characters: Old Kitty Pryde, Quicksilver, Bishop, Colossus, Iceman, Sunspot, Bishop, Blink, Storm, Havok, Young Toad, Young Stryker, Rogue, Warpath
Expectations: HIGH— I expect this movie to fix a lot of the plot holes from the past, give a clear direction for the future, and be as entertaining as First Class. I am expecting an 8/10 movie at minimum.
The Good Guys:
Wolverine is mutant born with one of the strongest healing factors out there, bone claws, and enhanced sense of smell and hearing who later was fused with indestructible adamantium making him even more formidable. His future mind is sent back into his past body (pre-adamantium) to unite Xaver and Magneto and stop the current future from happening.
Xavier is one of the strongest mutants ever and one of the strongest telepaths around. In the future timeline, he is… dead? Or at least his body was disintegrated by Phoenix and his mind was transferred to a comatose patient (comic books). Somehow he gets his body back and helps send Wolverine’s mind to the past. In the past, it seems he is a depressed, lonely dude who has abandoned his dream due to the events of First Class.
Magneto is one of the strongest mutants ever with the ability to manipulate metal/electromagnetic spectrum. Last we saw him in the movies, he was powerless… until the post credit scene of The Wolverine where he seemingly has his powers back. In the past, Magneto is a mutant terrorist, last seen creating his own brotherhood of sorts with Azazel, Riptide, Angel, Mystique, and Emma Frost.
Other Past X-Men: Beast, Quicksilver, Havok, Toad
Nobody is sure how much screen time any of these guys get. Beast looks like he may be pretty involved and Quicksilver is rumored to have one (excellent) scene. Havok and Toad on the other hand? Could just be fodder.
Other Future X-Men: Storm, Kitty Pryde, Bishop, Sunspot, Colossus, Blink, Iceman, Warpath
Kitty Pryde is rumored to be essential to sending Wolverine’s body to the past somehow. I would highly expect that the rest of these guys are nothing but fodder and killed violently by future Sentinels.
The Bad Guys:
He creates the Sentinel program in response to mutants. It looks like things take a turn for the worse lol.
From what I have seen, these seem made of metal, somewhat robotic, and easily controlled by Magneto. Basically though, they are mutant hunter/killers… designed to seek and destroy mutants on command.
These seem like the movie version of “Nimrod.” Super advanced cyborg Sentinels with a variety of powers and much more difficult to destroy than the first Sentinels. And judging from the future, it looks like they do a pretty good job.
The shape shifting mutant Mystique has me very confused. It looks like she goes rogue and may have something to do with what gets Past Magneto put in prison. I honestly cannot tell… I didn’t see anything in trailer where it looked like she was a “good” guy so here she goes for now.
