Over the past few weeks, a series of featurettes called ‘Power Pieces’ have been released to promote ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’. These videos have introduced us (or in most cases, reintroduced us) to the plethora of characters appearing in the Fox’s upcoming Marvel mutant movie. So far, we’ve seen the likes of Storm, Magneto, Mystique, Beast, Quicksilver, and Blink, but now we have profiles on three more heroes from Bryan Singer’s return to the X-Men film franchise.
We have a trio of promotional videos spotlighting three characters that have a long and rich history in the pages of ‘X-Men’ comics. Now, Bishop will make his big screen debut courtesy of ‘The Intouchables’ star Omar Sy and we have a brand new video to show him off to the world. The character stands against the Sentinels alongside the returning Daniel Cudmore and Shawn Ashmore, who will reprise their roles as Colossus and Iceman from the original ‘X-Men’ trilogy. You can check out their ‘Power Piece’ videos below, followed by the official synopsis of the movie:
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past to save our future.
What do you think about these spotlights on Bishop, Iceman, and Colossus from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’? Are you excited to see these three fan-favorite characters return for what very well could be the biggest X-Men movie ever?
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, and Evan Peters is set to hit theaters on May 23, 2014.
