Watch the X-Men: DOFP teaser shown during The Amazing Spider-man 2 credits

05.05.2014

After all the hoopla surrounding the stinger sequence playing during the credits for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 showcasing a scene from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, we now have a look at the scene in question. Focused on Mystique, the scene has been shown partially in trailers and photos released to date.

What the full minute clip does give us is a deeper look at Mystique going rogue (pun intended) to continue her plan that will eventually need to be foiled by a time-traveling Wolverine. Also featured in this clip are looks at Toad, Havok, and a very young William Stryker (previously played by Danny Huston and Brian Cox). Much like the previously released clip of Mystique kicking ass at a meeting with Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), this scene is all about Jennifer Lawrence doing some serious acrobatic fighting.

I am gaining more and more confidence in Bryan Singer's direction with X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST as each clip proves that the FIRST CLASS cast is still the primary focus of the film with only Wolverine playing a major part in the proceedings. The rest of the returning actors from the original trilogy are serving as cameos and window-dressing while keeping the continuity in line. That makes the feat of getting all of those actors back all the more impressive.

Here's hoping the full film is as good as these clips have been. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST opens in theaters on May 23rd.

Can't we all just get along?

Just make nice and share the characters in the other movies, who cares who owns them, and make them fit in one universe like it supposed to be. Definitely double bank.

Why does the second most expensive film Fox has made look so cheap? Maybe they spent $1 per cut, because judging by the way this scene is edited there must be 300 million cuts in this movie.

I know this website already posted on why this was in the credits for ASM 2, but just in case people missed it (which many seemed to have), Webb was essentially forced to do this. He had a contract with FOX to do another film with them. FOX cut a deal with Webb so he could do ASM 2: he could do the film if he helped promote DOFP. So, the solution was to put a clip from that film at the end of ASM 2. So, that's why this clip in in the ASM 2 credits. There you go, now you know.

Why would Sony care about some contract their director made at some point? They took whatever money Fox gave them to have a commercial in their credits. It's that simple.

And further, in my opinion, it's underhanded marketing to fool people into thinking that these are Marvel Studios movies since most viewers have no idea different studios are making movies with Marvel characters.

Glad it will be mostly focused around the First Class cast, since I found that movie to be much more compelling than the older ones (though I watched it again last night and it's got a few more flaws than I used to notice, I still think it's a very good movie). Though I'm looking forward to the return of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, obviously. I hope they have at least a few good scenes.

And I agree with those who think that including this with Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just so stupid.

I hope this isn't a trend.

I am fine with after-credits scenes. I'm even fine with mid-credits scenes. Aside from making people be respectful and sit through a lot of credits for the filmmakers that helped bring the preceding film together, they are also great opportunities to throw in Easter eggs or new plot threads to whet the fans' appetites until the next installment.

But a mid-credits scene that is more of an advertisement and has nothing to do with the movie before it? That's stupid. I hope this isn't a new

But a mid-credits scene that is more of an advertisement and has nothing to do with the movie before it? That's stupid. I hope this isn't a new trend, where stingers will become promotional materials for upcoming films. The Guardians of the Galaxy clip in Thor: the Dark World was already so out-of-place, but at least it is somewhat connected to Thor, even if it is quite tenuous.

But Days of Future Past being advertised in the credits for Spider-Man? Are they kidding me with this shit?

It felt a lot like those ads you get in iPhone/Android games. You're having this great time, just getting done with a super fun game, and then out of nowhere your immersion is broken completely by an ad that has nothing to do with the product you're using.

Like I said, stingers are wonderful! I love them usually, mostly because I legitimately don't think enough people give the credits the recognition they deserve; also because of the aforementioned Easter eggs and such. But I hope they won't be corrupted like this where they will now be thought of as places to put trailers for new movies. What better way to get people to skip the credits even more than promise things that those same people try to skip at the beginning of a film?

Terrible.

It won't be a trend. The director was almost forced to do this by FOX because he had a contract with them. Webb was only allowed by FOX to make the ASM sequel if he promoted their movie, so this was his solution in order to do that film. Unless another director runs into a similar problem, this won't be a common thing.

My response to this after AS2 was "why?" Why is it necessary to show a clip that obviously has some meaning to the plot. I had no idea what was going on, and can I seriously not just wait 3 weeks for that clip with context? I heard many people say walking out of the theater that the DOFP clip was stupid. I agree.
