Magneto impresses by raising a stadium in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' clip

According to ComicBook.com on Wednesday, yet another character profile clip for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" was released. Magento, played by Michael Fassbender, impresses with his extraordinary magnetic personality as he lifts an entire stadium off the ground. There's no telling where he'll be taking it, but from the full length movie trailer it does appear he may have dropped it in front of some old-fashioned squad cars in hot pursuit.

Fassbender, also known for his roles in Zack Snyder's "300" and future projects such as "Prometheus 2" and "Assassin's Creed", joins up with the "X-Men" team from the future against a common foe. The Sentinels, created by Boliver Trask, as played by "King of Throne's" Peter Dinklage, take on the total obliteration of mutants and touted a "new kind of weapon" for a "different kind of war". Trask creates his first Sentinel in the early 70s and after creating an army, his plan backfires as they even turn against humans as well.

Logan/Wolverine is sent back into the past as he's the last of the very few remaining mutants in the future. Kitty Pryde, played by Ellen Page, uses her mutant ability to help Logan bridge the gap between his two selves.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is directed by Bryan Singer, produced by Laurent Shuler-Donner, and screen written by Simon Kinberg. Their plans to keep this franchise going by not letting it fall into "film fatigue" seems to be quite promising by delving into the individual mutants' problems that the audience could have an association. The sequel following this one has been coined the name "X-Men: Apocalypse" where a quite deadly and ancient Egyptian mutant will be the main antagonist.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" premiered in New York last Saturday night and opens in theaters for public viewing come May 23.
