I'll be honest, I love Hugh Jackman and I think he's getting better and better at being Logan but I was REALLY hoping he wouldn't be the focal point of this film. I mean, I have faith in Singer and I'm sure he's not going to waste the huge ensemble that he's put together but this is looking like another "Wolverine is the x-men's only hope" kind of movie. Hope I'm wrong though. I really want this to be an ensemble piece like x1 and X2 and First Class.

Jackman was at his best in X1 I think, he felt more natural to me

Honestly, from the trailer even with Wolvie being the time traveler and all, it still didn't come off to me that he was the center of the entire movie. He's more of the catalyst for the story for the characters in the past to come together.

It looked more heavily focused on Professor Xavier and Magneto and Mystique secondly.

Well said, SuperT.

The trailer is cut to get people to recognize Jackman, Stewart, McKellan, Berry, etc. But I have no doubt that the FC trio will be the focus.

I think it's pretty understandable that people would assume Wolverine to be main character in this movie, from the trailer. He's portrayed as the one with the mission to save the future. FC characters may well be the focus in the movie but this trailer is not really selling them much and none of them get to utter a word apart from young!Charles in the end. If I just watched this trailer I wouldn't guess that Lawrence, Fassbender and McAvoy are top-billed behind Jackman.

The storyline was the important thing they needed to get across in the teaser, it's actually a very technical story that they had to make a simple as they could for a teaser for anyone who doesn't know this storyline

Older xavier and magneto with wolverine were the only dialogue if you don't count young xavier

I thought I read somewhere Singer saying that the focus of the film is still the FC cast which I was glad to hear.

I think he's great and getting better too but he'd be even better if not the focus to me. The richness of X-Men comes out when they show how many members of the team are equally important, not when one dominates whoever that might be. Wolverine is one of the best X-Men but that's all; no reason why he should be massively more important than a Cyclops, Storm or Beast to me.

Obviously, FOX is selling the return of the original gang to the viewers. Of course there are a lot of people that would see this movie because of the FC trio but the reunion factor is much more marketable and appealing. The first few seconds of DOFP's trailer is what imagined the trailer for X4.

I doubt thats all they have right now, the comic-con footage came out in July. Surely, they have done something in August, October and September, right?

And the music is very important. Remember, they are trying to sell a movie. I'm sure there's some people out there who don't give a damn about X-Men, who will see the trailer in theater or TV and that person won't watch the movie because that person found the trailer boring because of the background music.

I guess it's a good thing the movie is 7 months away, with plenty of trailers and TV spots left to play.

I don't know if the YouTube views count is up to date. A few hours ago it only had 5 million, and I expected more but now it has 7.6 million views. Hopefully this will settle down to 20 million views by Saturday.

For those questioning why Storm's eyes aren't white in the trailer: it's clearly about the FX being in development now. I believe there have been other X-Men trailers released early and her eyes weren't white but by time the final trailers were out the exact same scenes featured them correctly (see the first X-men film trailers with Storm wreaking havoc at the Statue Of Liberty).

Clearly Storm is manipulating the weather in these scenes. Perhaps it's easier to add lighting bolts than FXing a human target. That said, I wish they would've waited a few more weeks to do this and then release it; we've waited this long.

Sure, but I think it's also why there's so much NOOOOOOO NOT WOLVERINE reaction around. Because the trailer doesn't sell 70s characters too much it makes it look like Wolverine is the only real focus.

Well lets just say we're back in the OT days where Wolverine is the star. I don't have a problem with this since this seems to be the All-Stars movie of X-Men and its obvious they won't let Wolverine to take the back seat.

I disagree about the only real focus, if you know the context of the movie, you will know its not all about Wolverine. Its about going to the past to save the future. And obviously they are selling the movie, of course the trailer is gonna be Wolverine-overload.

I imagine though that many people who see the trailer may not know much about the context of the movie. Hence the reactions.

For me, it doesn't look like Wolverine is the only main focus. After-all, he's only getting orders from Professor X and the main person that he will visit in the past is Professor X too.

Some people like to tell themselves that its all about Wolverine because he's on-screen like all the time but if they care to know whats the real context of the movie, they will know its not all about Wolverine.
