It’s no secret that the cast of Bryan Singer‘s upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” film is pretty massive — with a who’s-who of movie mutants from previous films and a number of new characters set to make their silver screen debut, there’s a lot of excitement around what the X-Men movieverse’s take on the unseen mutants. Empire Online has posted a gallery of 25 cover images for its latest issue to be revealed throughout the day, each featuring one of the many characters cast in the upcoming sequel. So far, the characters highlighted include the Sentinel, Havok (Lucas Till), Toad (Evan Jonigkeit), William Stryker (Josh Helman), Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and young Magneto (Michael Fassbender).
The covers are especially notable for giving the first, fully-costumed look at Till as Havok, Jonigkeit as Toad and Peters as Quicksilver — and with 16 more covers to come, it’s likely that there will be a few more surprises and many more familiar faces throughout the day.
Check out Empire’s currently-revealed covers below and check back in during the day to see more of the images as they’re released.
