X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer Premiered!

So the first official trailer for the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie has been released.
The film is set to hit theaters on May 23rd, 2014.

As part of promoting this, the director and producer Bryan Singer has done a twitter Q and A.  You can find it collected over on Comic Book Resources.  Empire Magazine's website, Empire Online, has done a trailer breakdown with Bryan Singer too.  So if you wanted to hear more indepth from the man behind it himself, be sure to check it out.

On the tweeted Q n A though, one tweeted response caught my attention personally.

Could this be the much rumored Mr. Sinister or Apocalypse cameos that he doesn't want to talk about?
Or could his mind already be working forward for the next movie and who he would like to use so he doesn't want to spoil the surprises?

Going by the decade approach that these films seem to carry with First Class being in the 60s and Days of Future Past having a 70s focus, could the next have an 80s focus?  That does fit to the current timeline of the X-Men cinematic universe of when Scott Summers and Jean Grey joined the school as kids.  It also sets an interesting decade where Taylor Kitsch could reprise his role as Gambit.  Just as they could also in theory pick up the pieces of Deadpool to help make his character more towards what makes Deadpool so beloved.  The pieces are there.  It would only take roughly about 5 minutes worth of scenes to make his story come together to be the merc with a mouth fans have come to know and love.

Personally, I want to see the film where they get to the 90s, or start dealing with the after effects of Last Stand and The Wolverine on a grander team scale(of course besides the upcoming DOFP film).  Maybe we could see X-23 somewhere in there if she isn't already going to appear in the potentially upcoming X-Force feature.  She's another that Singer may want to use but wants to keep quiet on until much later.  All it should take is just one appearance for buzz to start before she could very well end up with her own spin-off movie serial or origin film.  She is essentially the Black Widow of the X-Men cinematic universe but with a more youthful twist to her story that allows for more room with story potential and growth.

Another interesting tweet of notice, and this one has to do with who you saw in the trailer above, tells us what new mutants might be in the film.  Look away now if you don't want spoilers.

So who knows what other surprises might be in store for the film.  Keep your eyes peeled for future trailers.  Who knows just what characters might appear in the dystopian future half.  We might be privy to all kinds of cameos, especially if they maintain the infamous grave scene or mutant prison scene in some fashion.
