X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer Pits Xavier Against Xavier

'You're afraid. I remember.'

X-Men: Days of Future Past, due to debut May 23rd, pits elder Xavier versus his younger self in this latest trailer. It's all getting very doom-laden in the far-flung future, and it looks as if younger Xavier is the stumbling block this time out. Can the X-Men, past and present, combine forces to save the future, or is this the moment mutants go extinct?

Wolverine, being the only one who'll look the same whether it's the 1960s or the post-apocalyptic future, is the one going back in time to save the day. This started life as a direct sequel to X-Men: First Class, complete with Kennedy assassination plot, but now the Bent Bullet theory is more of a backdrop, setting the scene for a comic continuity inspired time travel story.

Yes, that is Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask) you see there, knocking the world on its heels as he tries to get humanity to join forces to wipe out mutant kind once and for all. Most of the cast from the previous movies are back in this one, with a couple of exceptions, but the one I'm looking forward to is Michael Fassbender's Magneto. Looking good so far!
