To demonstrate the perplexing effect of alternate timelines in its upcoming superhero film X-Men: Days of Future Past, studio 20th Century Fox commissioned a set of posters featuring characters Magneto and Professor X. In one, a portrait of mutant lord Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) juxtaposed with a photo of his younger self, then known as Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender). The other features protagonist Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) superimposed against a photo of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), before he established X-Men. The poster series also includes two propaganda-like editions from the fictional Trask Industries, maker of the giant robotic enforcers known as the Sentinels.
Directed by Bryan Singer and featuring an all-star cast, X-Men: Days of Future Past will be in theaters worldwide on May 23rd, 2014.
