Has The Plot Of X-MEN; DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Been Spoiled?

xmendaysoffutureI don’t know why people with plot spoilers would go to go to comic book news site message boards to list their spoilers. There are plenty of actual websites that would be willing to spoil that for them.

Last week, It was Batman vs. Superman that had its plot supposedly spoiled on a gaming message board, now it’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Supposedly, a poster onc ComicBookResources.com listed this.

What makes this one a little more interesting is that the post was picked up by ComicBookMovie.com. However, the article that once reported the plot leak now only has a picture of a young lady, dressed as Wonder Woman, taking her clothes off, with a caption “removed at the request of the studio.”  Not necessarily the classiest, but sure adds intrigue to the proceedings. After all, why would Fox want the plot point removed unless they were true.

Luckily, Bleeding Cool still has the plot points up as of this writing and we’ll pass them along to you. Although, my advice to you is that you don’t wait too long to read these spoilers or copy and paste them into a word document for future perusal, because this post might not be long for this world.

Oh, and this…


Young Jean Grey appears in the past.

Cannonball appears in a mutant refugee camp in the future that is attacked by Sentinels.

Rogue has been captured so the Sentinels can duplicate her powers and use it against mutants. The X-Men later rescue her, and, due to the genetic manipulation done by the Sentinels, Rogue briefly displays super-strength and flight during the escape.

The Sentinels are made of magnetized plates and therefore can change their shape, becoming learner or bulkier. The addition of Rogue’s powers makes them virtually unstoppable, which is why the X-Men decide to move forward with the last-ditch effort to change the outcome of the war by altering the past.

There is a mutant unit led by William Stryker that Havok and Toad are a part of, in 1972.

Banshee left the X-Men to be with his family, and Emma Frost has been captured by the government again, but Magneto isn’t bothered to break her out yet again.

Mystique assassinates President Kennedy while Magneto tries to stop her, which results in him being captured and forced to join the unit. However, this is part of his plan, and Mystique later stages an attempt against President Nixon’s life so Magneto can break out.

When Mystique goes to Saigon to help the mutant unit escape, Toad takes the opportunity, and is later recruited to Magneto’s brotherhood.

The timeline “fractures” in the end. The original timeline (which includes “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “X2″, “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “The Wolverine”) remains the same, and the new timeline (which includes “First Class”) is a clean slate, in which anything could happen. Old Xavier mentions he is able to feel the other timeline still.

Young Beast and Old Mystique share a brief moment in which he apologizes for not creating a better future, and she apologizes for not being able to change the past. Beast still harbors a crush on her and even attacks Magneto during the Kennedy assassination, under assumption he’s trying to hurt her.

Wolverine’s mind remains in his 1972 body. His future self is left in a comatose state.

The X-Men’s hideout is an ancient tomb where Apocalypse lies dormant, though he awakens in the end. The comatose Wolverine might become his first Horseman in “X-Men: Apocalypse”.

You mean the plot of a movie based on a previously published story arc of the most popular comic book series ever? Gosh, I hope it’s not spoiled.

Amen Sean. And you know, I used to LIKE Cyclops. EVERYONE freakin’ bags on Cyke but I LIKED him most of the time (A few writer bobbles aside). So for me, killing him in X-3 was the biggest BETRAYAL and cemented my refusal to see the movie… EVER. Still haven’t seen it. SCREW X-3, YOU KILLED CYKE!

Fox should just stop and let Marvel buy back the rights with a share of profits until their license would have expired. Reboot/recast and merge Xmen and FF into the MCU.

Only for people foolish enough to read the kind of web sites that spoil stuff.
