Default Days of Future Past SPOILERS! (You have been warned!)

Discuss spoilers, end-credit scenes and whatever else you find regarding DOFP without having to worry about the spoiler tags.

-Just do not post any bootlegged footage. That rule still applies.

Have fun!

Ok, so Wolvie has bone claws now! WTH man!

I loved the post credits. It acknowledged Xavier's death in X3, while "reverting" him to the more familiar incarnation.

Intriguing: Sentinels are part of the main, original, continuity. If the time travel mission success, does the original trilogy gets kind of erased?

If they make a significant change in 1973 then the original trilogy could be regarded as erased, or you could look at it like the Star Trek reboot and the change creates a new alternate timeline.

And I'm wondering how the Wolverine credits scene factors in with DOFP: For one that's in the 'present' day, and Erik says they are making a weapon, indicating the Sentinels have not been completed yet (but there's that '50 years' poster thing so who knows?)

But we know from the stills that it must be the older slightly grey templed Wolverine from somewhere further in the future (possibly 2023?) who gets his mind swapped out with his younger self.

So what will Erik, Charles and Logan have been doing between the post credits Wolverine scene and the future he gets sent back from?

The war started and they've been fighting. It's looking certain some time has passed between the end credit scene and when we see them next in DOFP. Who knows if we'll ever find out how much time. But going by the reports of the SDCC footage they are already at war and looking worn down a bit.

The more I think about it, the more I start to believe that maybe the Sentinels are a response to the cure from X3 not working. It'd be a good way to tie into X3 and a believable enough reason to have the government sanction this. They freak out, especially with someone like Magneto running around with his powers again, and with Trask on this.

That is what I think has happened. Except Sentinels have been around secretly since the 70's. Remember Stryker had Wide Awake on his computer in X2 so they already knew about them. They just hadn't let them be developed properly by Trask industries.

The cure fails however long after X3 and all those mutants are back on the loose. The government freak out and decide to let Trask industries develop Sentinels in large enough numbers which takes a bit of time and then they release them. Could explain the years wait from inbetween X3 and TW end credit scene.

I love this theory!!

As we no at the end of x3 magneto only musters strength to nudge a little chess piece. We also know that time has passed since x3 allowing mutants time to regain full ability.

The government need something to allow the programme to go ahead.

It all seems very plausible.

How can we make this theory work for our dead Xmen like cyclops and jean grey?!

The Sentinel they revealed at Comic-Con was the Mark 1 designation, about twice human size, that has supposedly been around for awhile. It was more than likely the first field tested version but the Sentinels that Trask plans to unleash on mutants are the full sized ones.

I absolutely loved Magneto in the end credit scenes! nice to know he has his magnetic powers back. I wonder if that is addressed at all in DOFP or if they don't mention it at all. I guess we could insinuate that the cure is not permanent but I would love to hear a character say that and for the movie to make a direct reference to X-Men: The Last Stand.

Since X3 hasn't been erased they will have to explain Charles' deal and how Magneto has his powers back now. Would be the height of presumption to just jump into DOFP without having that stuff covered in the script.

I'd imagine a little exposition just to state the cure wasn't permanent after all would do (or not permanent for all), and maybe a brief flash back for Charles 'resurrection' would handle that (might explain Moira's presence in both First Class & X3 then too).

A minute or 2 screentime ought to be enough to cover the basic crap Ratner left over from X3 that Singer has to contend with.

the end credits scene was nice, but NOT the best directed and written piece, must have been rushed big time

Did anyone notice the camera work when Professor X entered the airport?

It was not good. And I wish his lines were shorter.

But the mid-credits scene was still exciting.

It would have been cool if they mentioned the 'cure' in The Wolverine seeing as how it takes place after it.

I knew Prof.X was going to say "You're not the only one with gifts"...

I'm still surprised at people leaving during the credits. When the scene started, a bunch of people ran back into the theater. At least half the audience went crazy and started to cheer and clap when Magneto and Xavier showed up. I got goosebumps during the whole thing. To add more fan service, I think it would have been cool if there were other X-Men in the background they were hiding among the crowd like Storm, Kitty Pryde, Ice Man, etc.

That end-credits scene in The Wolverine felt like the superhero-movie equivalent of seeing The Beatles get back together...

I'm going to be very honest with you: I almost had tears in my eyes. Literally.


In fact, the entire Wolverine film altogether blew me away, 180 degrees away from the lousy Origins film...but that's a topic for another thread.

I don't see the government releasing Sentinels until there is an appropriate, Magneto level threat. Magneto would tear metal sentinels apart would he not? Unless they are impervious to magnetism. So is Magneto back to his terrorist ways after regaining his powers post X-3? That's too much of a stretch for me. My guess is that another villain unleashes the Sentinels from the shadows, and the situation gets out of hand.

Cyclops and Jean probably don't come back unless the trilogy is retconned. Otherwise I can't fathom how a guy like Cyclops would have been in hiding for ten years if he were alive all that time. I think Stryker could play a hand in that, since he will have a role in the 1970's. That's the theory I am going with.

I dont know if you noticed this but in The Wolverine,Jean's last scene where she is full of white in a white place maybe (heaven) she said that she is alone, does that mean that Cyclops isn't dead?

I mean I hope Cyclops isn't dead, but I think the Jean he sees is just his imagination.

Yes, the last scene seemed as if she is White Phoenix.

I love the end credit scene,so cool.

I think Mangold,Famke and Hugh have never officialy told this.
We don't know this maybe she was in logan's head and maybe she is white phoenix...i hope the second because i personally love Jean Grey

Maybe all were in Logan's head exept the last scene when Jean opens a door and left (maybe form the mind of Wolvie)

No, he hasn't. Why would Jean still be near Alkali Lake, also she was unconscious. She should just left this place, after killed him. There happened something we didn't see on screen.

You took the words right out of my mouth; erm...finger tips. Whatever.

Cyclops is definitely alive somewhere. If he were dead for real he'd be with her in The White Hot Room.

I disagree. Why is it horrible? It's actually in line with the comic canon--Jean is always beckoning to Logan from the White Hot Room, and if it's not him, she's communicating with Scott, Emma or someone else.

And both X2 AND X3: The Last Stand established CLEARLY that Jean has the ability to communicate while "dead": At the conclusion of X2, Xavier had a clear notion that Jean had survived. In X3, she appealed to Scott, luring him to Alkali Lake. And she definitely has a psychic lock on Logan, enabling communication between them as well.

So her appearing in this form to Logan in this latest Wolverine film is not far-fetched at all. I definitely don't think it's a dream or a hallucination. I loved how Logan kinda checked Jean and put her in her place towards the end of the film: she blamed him for "putting her there" and he reminded her that she was murdering innocents. And she didn't argue the fact either because she knew he was right. That's why she was like, "Later."

Jean is alive, and that bleached out scene was certainly fan service for the White Hot Room. I thought it was extremely well-done.
