The first official trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past dropped earlier this week and it offered some glimpses at the highly anticipated 2014 film. A new report gives an even deeper look at the film by way of a description of one of the scenes between two main characters.
The latest edition of Empire Magazine offers a complete description of a scene between Young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Young Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) in which the former friends express their difference of opinion about mutantkind:
"As extras with suitably big hair glide past, the camera tracks with Raven, on her way to catch a flight. Out of the blue passengers start talking to her, warning her, dissuading her from her intention. She ignores them, rounds a corner and standing in front of her is Charles Xavier.
Ten years have elapsed since the events of the previous movie, a decade in which Charles has disbanded the X-Men and let his school for gifted youngsters go to seed.
Charles - or an astral projection of Charles, hence the absence of a wheelchair - pleads with Raven not to leave him once more. At one point McAvoy throws in the line, 'We have to show them we're not al like Erik.' But Charles' remonstrations have no effect; Raven will not be swayed. The scene ends with a distraught Xavier promising, 'Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will find you, Raven. If I have to, I will stop you.'"
The 2011 film X-Men: First Class depicted Xavier and Mystique as friends, but the two had drifted apart by the end of the film thanks in part to Magneto (Michael Fassbender). It looks as though that rift will only grow wider in Days of Future Past.
The film is scheduled for release on May 23, 2014.
