My understanding is what we’ve got here is the same footage as what was screened in Hall H for FOX’s panel at SDCC, at least part of it. This very short clip, which appeared on YouTube earlier today only to be promptly pulled by FOX’s lawyers, then later uploaded to a more dubious video hosting site, is the very beginning of the footage screened at Comic Con.
Give the blurry, bald head of Charles Xavier a click in order to view the footage. Do it now! Before it’s taken down again! [Note: only click play, don’t bother installing whatever crap they try and trick you into.]
If you couldn’t make out the dialogue here’s a transcript,
Ian McKellen‘s Magneto: What’s the last thing you remember?
Patrick Stewart‘s Xavier: I had a glimpse into the past. (To Wolverine) You will have to do for me what I once did for you.
McKellen’s Magneto: You’ll need me as well… side-by-side to end this war… before it ever begins.
And cut, end of footage. There’s more to it, and it’s the entirety of the clip those at Comic Con and those at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, where this bootleg comes from, had the fortune to see.
What we can glean from this measly 40 seconds is quite a bit, though. We see Rogue (Anna Paquin), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) – now with beard! That’s how we know time’s past, guys. And of course, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. There’s the X-Mansion, upstairs and downstairs, and Cerebro. More exciting though, are the quick looks at Omar Sy as Bishop, Adan Canto as Sunspot, and Booboo Stewart as Warpath.
What else were you able to spot?
Where the footage goes from here has already been recapped repeatedly since Comic Con ended, but for a refresher here’s Screen Rant’s take.
Thanks to @pittsed_off for the tip to a working video!
