If you, like so many others, were under the impression that it would be impossible to anticipate Bryan Singer’s upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” any more than you already were, get ready to be impressed. On Tuesday, April 15, Fox dropped one final trailer for the time-traveling mutant extravaganza, and it packs some serious promise.

The 2:41 trailer features Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine pretty heavily––here’s hoping his character is not overly saturated in the film––showing us what is presumably his first meeting with past Charles Xavier and laying out his mission to unite the X-Men (given to him by none other than present day Charles Xavier) in an effort to change the course of history and avert a horrific event that spells out certain doom for mutants and mankind alike.

In addition to some getting the gang back together moments––Magneto is stashed in a prison below the pentagon and Wolverine wastes no time insulting Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), by way of recruitment––the trailer highlights some back and forth between Wolverine and Beast (Nicholas Hoult), as well as the arrival of Quicksilver, who will also appear in Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, albeit portrayed by a different actor and as part of quite a different cinematic universe. Though he should make a good addition to this latest X-Men outing, his presence is a bit of a needling reminder that fans are unlikely to ever see the X-Men, the Avengers and Spider-Man co-exist on screen, despite them all being Marvel characters. But, hey, if you were 20th Century Fox or Sony, would you give the rights to part or the Marvel empire back to Disney and Marvel Studios when moviegoers appetite for superheroes seems bottomless?

We also get a quick look at Peter Dinklage (a.k.a. Tyrion Lannister) as Boliver Trask––a scientist and the head of Trask Industries, which is responsible for the creation of the Sentinels (giant robots) that are designed to hunt down mutants, but as we learn from Wolverine, begin hunting everything.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” will (finally) arrive in theaters on May 23. Until then, we’ll watch this trailer a few dozen more times, and maybe peruse the 25 Moments timeline Fox put together that shows the history of human-mutant relations.
