Comic-Con kicked off some great momentum for X-Men: Days of Future Past. With the reveal of the Sentinels and exclusive footage shown in Hall H, the marketing train has left the station. Four brand new posters have revealed themselves to the public; two of which bear similarities to those released for X-Men: First Class. But there are some interesting propaganda posters that may put fans in greater anticipation for the first trailer. Check them out after the jump.
As you can see below, the design team chose to create a similar First Class concept for the two more traditional teaser posters that feature Professor X and Magneto. But unlike the wildly controversial posters of yesteryear, these new posters for Days of Future Past are quite well made. Sure, there is a little Photoshop here and there to mesh James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart as well as Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen together to make their facial features look relatable, but it’s done in a better fashion than just a dropping in a floating head.
And straying away from the more traditional route, Trask Industries has decided to release propaganda posters to promote their Sentinels. For those unfamiliar with the mutant hunting building-sized robots, they were created by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) to wipe out the mutant threat from the face of the Earth. Trask’s ideology when developing the Sentinels was his way of saving humanity. These propaganda posters below definitely showcase their point-of-view on the subject.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will debut in US theaters May 23, 2014.
