Bryan Singer has been very generous during the production of X-Men: Days of Future Past about letting us normal people see behind the scenes photos of the coolest aspects of the film. From tweeting a sneak peek at a full-sized sentinel, to even showing glimpses of character concepts (we’re very into X-Men), Singer is all about letting fans know what they’re getting with this movie.
And now, production has wrapped on Future Past, giving us the first official image from the film that did not come from behind the scenes. Hank McCoy/Beast in his human form (Nicholas Hoult), Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) are represented front and center in all their time traveling, ’70s glory as they look prepared to face down an unpictured enemy. Or, they’re posing for the cover of the best album ever recorded.
All we can hope is that Singer will be as enthusiastic with the official stills and post-production images as he was with his behind the scenes features. There’s still a long road until May 23, 2014.
