If you were truly bothered by that, X-Men: First Class would be one of your most hated movies. And, if elements like time travel and mutant hunting robots are such a crime, then why are you clamoring for a trailer to Days of Future Past and posting here now more than you have in years?
Regardless, I see no reason as to why Fox should further ignore the 616 characters and relationships that people have come to know and love for years in favor of a dead series that some may consider even more distorted than the current cinematic universe.
I've gone into quite the detail to explain why I am so excited about Days Of Future Past, and why something like Sentinels is one of my favorite parts of the X-Men universe, and why I have been wanting them in an X-Men film for yeeeaarrrs.
And why would X-Men: First Class be one of my most hated movies?
1.) It is incredibly grounded, even tho yes the "fantasy" is upped quite a bit over Singer's 1st 2 films, but it is still incredibly grounded
2.) It is the furthest away from 616 of all the movies in the series, by far.
