What I’ve Learned About X-Men: Days Of Future Past By Looking At Empire Magazines Exclusive Covers

My apologies for the slightly long-winded title, but I wasn’t really sure how to make my point and condense the title. Anyway, as I’m sure you have all seen, Empire magazine is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and as such has tied down some exclusive content to help celebrate that fact. The first of those exclusives being 25 different covers for this months edition of the magazine, featuring all the different cast members of this years mutant mashup X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Taking a look at the different covers, it is clear that Empire and Fox have cleverly let loose a few tidbits of information regarding their summer tent pole release. Read on as I take a look at several of the covers and dig deep to see what hidden bits of info they contain.


In the future, it seems that Dyson has moved away from the hoover industry and has stepped into the mutant gene hunting industry. Gone are the days when their products simply cleaned up the dirt and grime found in your home, and instead now, the one time hoover makers are now apparently in bed with Trask industries and are helping in their plans of eliminating the mutant threat of the future.


Clearly the producers of the X-Men franchise feel that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine doesn’t take his shirt off enough, and despite the worrying looking vein down his right arm, they appear to have remedied the issue here. Rumour has it that Jackman will appear shirtless every 3 minutes and 30 seconds during the movie.


Apparently Quicksilver’s power is that of being the worst dressed mutant ever. Looking at this picture, I assume he will use his bad dress sense as a distraction to his real power of being able to run really, really quickly and thus will put off his enemies long enough so that the real mutants like Wolverine can do the real work that he can’t. Hopefully the character won’t look anything like this in Avengers: Age Of Ultron.


Now, I’m not sure what to make of this one. It could a cynical ploy to get more young males into the audience, or it could be the guy in Photoshop having a bit of fun, either way I’m pretty sure Jennifer Lawrence’s breasts weren’t that big in X-Men: First Class. I’m also unsure of how this will play into the events of the movie? Perhaps, her breast increase is the event that somehow triggers the future apocalypse that Wolverine is sent back in time to try to avert?

So, there you have it. A comprehensive look at one of this years most anticipated blockbusters, or was it just a lame attempt at a humorous feature?
