‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Debut Their Sentinels

Here’s a look at the Sentinels from X-Men: Days of Future Past. And, of course, it comes with a viral site!

There’s not much to said viral site right now. Mostly it’s just directing visitors to swing by the San Diego Hard Rock hotel and “Celebrate 50 Years Of Human Progress”. Notice the key word there is “human”. We suspect that once the con is over, the site will have a lot more for those of us who couldn’t make it to the floor.

That also may offer a hint at the movie’s timeline; X-Men: First Class took place in 1962, obviously, so Days of Future Past may be picking up in 1963 or ’64, with the “future” part of the movie taking place around the time the movie comes out.

As far as the movie design goes… it’s pretty faithful, which perhaps is not a surprise with Bryan Singer at the helm. There’s a hint of the Ultimate Universe surrounding these guys, but also the classic look from the main continuity. True, it doesn’t look exactly like the Sentinels from the comics, but it’s fairly close in a lot of respects, while still being its own thing.
