    I was kinda curious about that too, but remember the first film had them in black. Yeah, I know, continuity is kinda loopy in these X-Men films.

    It would almost seem kinda like a step back if we went back to black leather again for the X-Men, after First Class had the classic yellow and black suits and with how the Horseman are decked out o_O.

    And didn't DoFP have enough black leather costumes for the future X-Men to give that style the sendoff it deserves :p?

    I'd certainly say so. Let's see some color.

    The first official synopsis, and a little hint at Apocalypse's powers.

    Weird to see Mystique as a good guy...then again, the Mystique of this trilogy has always been more morally ambiguous, if leaning towards good, then past incarnations. The relationship with Xavier probably helps ;).

    So it seems Apocalypse will have a bunch of powers? I dig it, but wonder how the non-comic fans will take it. Then again, since he's supposed to be god-like, it should make sense to anyone if he turns out to be OP.

    It's been on the cards for a long time now that Mystique would have a central role in this film as a good guy but it's still a bitter pill to swallow. As long as they don't focus on her too much, it'll be fine, and it's logical considering how 'her soul was saved' at the end of Days of Future Past, but really, if they had done this with Juggernaut (reformed him and had him lead some X-Men), would people be happy about it? Considering that Mystique has taken Juggernaut's place in the film franchise as the one Xavier grew up with, I think this is a question worth asking. It would be weird to see Juggernaut/Cain as the X-Men field leader, and likewise it won't feel right having Mystique/Raven in that role here. Hopefully they'll retire the character after this movie because the fixation on Jennifer Lawrence could do the franchise a great deal of harm (in storytelling terms I mean - box office wise it would be fine), should a comic book antagonist continue to be so central to the films and even more so than many of the X-Men themselves. As this is the culmination/conclusion of the First Class trilogy, we can only hope that Mystique and Magneto have downsized roles in future movies. I know, I should speak for myself, but surely others are also iffy on how those two have ended up eclipsing many of the heroes.

    There's a ready-made roster of great X-Men (all of whom are the right age for their parts too) from the end of the Days of Future Past just begging to be used again - Rogue, Colossus, Iceman and Shadowcat among them. Hopefully Fox will devote more time to that cast before they all become too old to play the parts.

    11/2: Reports Hugh Jackman will be on hand for January reshoots in Montreal.

    Probably an end credits teaser as a lead into The Wolverine 2. I can't imagine it's a cameo during the movie and they've thought of a funnier joke than the one in First Class.

    11/3: Evan Peters previews Quicksilver's role
    So hopefully they'll confirm Magneto is daddy.

    I hope not, finding the time to conceive a child while going on an intense man hunt doesn't make a lot of sense.

    It would make it likely that Pietro is the one who takes on Horseman Magneto and brings Erik out of his disillusionment and loyalty to Apocalypse thanks to their familial connection :cool:.

    Just checking though...despite the fact that the MCU now has a prominent Scarlet Witch, that doesn't prevent Fox from using Wanda does it? Especially when Pietro has on-screen siblings and the Twins have a shared rights situation.

    Very cool. JLaw seems to have come into herself more, the sfx look pretty decent. Definitely feels like the end of a trilogy seeing Byrne again with gray highlights.

    Anyone else having a feeling that Psylocke is going to be this film's equivalent to either Gambit or Deadpool from the Origins: Wolverine film?
