There is also description of the new trailer footage that may leak, or even be released, soon, but first, the Mystique image:
Exciting wasn't it?
Though it doesn't really give away anything from the movie, the power of Jennifer Lawrence's tears may be enough for the studio to demand the image be pulled down, so bask upon it while you can.
As for the trailer description:
It begins by zooming away from Professor X's eye as he talks about how they never imagined themselves being where they are. As it pans further away we get shots of the other mutants with him, Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Rogue, and Iceman.
Professor X is trying to convince Wolverine to travel back in time, meet his younger self to guide him, warning that he was a very different man back then. The scene changes to young Xavier in a wheelchair with long shaggy hair. As Xavier talks about how the times have changes, we get shots of new mutants: Bishop, Sunspot, Blink, and Warpath.
Magneto tells Wolverine that he must help and Wolverine asks how to find his younger self. He tells Wolverine he is 'somewhere much darker' as the scene changes to young Magneto in a courtroom holding a gun.
Professor X tells Wolverine he must have patience and after a bit of silence, Wolverine replies "Patience is not my strong suit."
Then the trailer kicks into high-gear as Wolverine gets sent back and montage shots from various points in the movie begin: Wolverine being shot up by a few guys, young Magneto walking through a crowd of scared people with a maniacal look, Mystque crying (pictured above), Beast screaming and raging, young Xavier screaming "I don't want your future!", Dinklage as Bolivar Trask at a committee meeting, a shot of Mystque morphing into an old man, young Xavier dusting off Cerebro, and young and old Professor X staring each other down with the old professor pleading with him to 'remember the man you were meant to become.'
It all sounds pretty trailer typical, but also cool, though after the whole Age of Ultron event this year, hearing the plot point of Wolverine going back in time gave me the shakes for a few moments.
