4 things in my opinion, and the one nobody has commented on is already we are seeing them working together, Blink opens a portal for him to come through which is a nice way of showing their teamwork.

They knew what they were doing with this trailer. What a gorgeous scene.

The 4th is the teamwork? I meant at the same time in the 2nd shot (as he's doing all 3 simultaneously) but yeah like you say the teamwork is awesome. The power combinations are what makes a lot of X-Men comic action scenes work so well and better than we've seen in the films so far. Especially characters like Rogue, Kitty & Nightcrawler who were almost designed for combinations.

Haha even if the film bombs now this 5 second gif will be here forever. It's already better than the next Transformers film.

I am not even a huge Iceman fan and I have to admit that was possibly my second favourite moment in the entire trailer.

My avvy haha. Something about the way Halle has approached storm this time around seems different. I dunno if it is possibly the fact they are all soldiers pretty much in this but she actually looks epic raising her arms like that.

The great thing is that footage of his slide is only about 2 seconds long. I think it's safe to say we've only seen the tip of the iceberg for that scene.

I would love to see a point-of-view ice-sliding shot ala TASM (or Beast in First Class).

Yeah it gets funnier each time I see it I think that was the exact reaction a lot of us had, staring at our laptops in disbelief for a few seconds, then that moment of joy when it sunk in that we were finally witnessing Iceman in all his ice sliding glory.

Finally the real iceman has shown up. Other than Nightcrawler and Wolverine, and Magneto, these movies haven't done a good job of showcasing the fighting abilities of these characters, and I think we are now starting to see the culmination of this. I realize in the first one they were limited by budget, but as the scope got bigger, it never seemed to reflect in the action.

Even Storm was greatly underused IMO compared to what she can do in the comics. While it sounds like Storm will be more of a cameo roll in this, we'll at least get to see Bobby do his thing.

I think the whole of the future crew will be fighting well together this time, although it would be nice to see the classic core X-Men get a real chance to do that one day.

I agree on the action front. The scale seems bigger in terms of action.

Disagree about Storm however. She is a little more than a cameo and she has some character development, apparently. It's also likely she will have a big action sequence in the beginning of the film.

That would be good for Storm. I just thought I had read that her part in this film was very small.
