New X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer Brings All the Time Travel Feels

Man, I wasn't expecting all this emotion in the clip for the upcoming X-Men prequel/sequel movie. And where are the damn Sentinels?

Along with a bunch of other folks who've played X-Men on-screen in past movies, we get glimpses of new characters like Bishop and Blink, too. Despite loving the Chris Claremont/John Byrne storyline that this film gets its name from, I wasn't caring about this film at all. But this awesome trailer certainly has my attention.

The most mistreated character in the history of comic book adaptations.

As IGN puts it: "Cyclops was misunderstood, miswritten, misdirected and generally mismanaged in this series."

Arguably he's a far more interesting character than Wolverine: "He's lost two wives, reunited with his space pirate father, discovered two lost brothers, fought beside both a son and daughter from alternate futures, and defended The Dream as a knight might protect the Holy Grail. Through all of this, he's still standing." Not to mention: Emma Frost, moving X-Men to San Francisco, X-Force and Utopia.

Why the filmmaker chose to pushed him back almost as a background character is beyond me. Cyclops has almost always been a central part of X-Men's best storylines, Cyclops is X-Men.
