Replace the word capeshit with horseboy, and that's how people treated the Western genre.

Good spot, besides Lawrence of course. It looks like she wears an even uglier version of the Mystique suit in Days of Future Past.. Sigh, choke her to death Apocalypse yay!

The VFX of Days of Future Past didn't looked done in the trailers either, I'm sure the finished effects will look great. Even though it doesn't look bad right now at all (save for two heavy green screen shots; Psylocke and Storm).

Can't wait to see Munn's performance.

The marketing material has certainly been a huge step down from Future Past so far, sure, and not considering Sheridan, Smit-McPhee and Isaac, I don't find the new additions to the cast, encouraging, but I've never been disappointed by Singer. When it comes to power of storytelling the guy has been one of the finest there is in the past two decades along with vintage Shyamalan and Nolan himself.£

I trust Singer. I feel like if he was able to near flawlessly balance all the crazy stuff in DoFP, he can handle a disaster film. Like I said, his direction and X2 writers plus the fantastic cast they have is good enough for me to be on board.

End of the day, it's just marketing. And like Virgo said it does feel like a step down from Days in that department. But it's Singer, guy delivered three times already so why should I doubt him now? I'll be there Day 1 anyway.

Well, Days of Future Past's Rogue Cut was superior to the theatrical version. I hope they keep the option open to release an extended cut for this as well, only because the Rogue Cut gave that extra depth to the characters and story that I thought worked really well. It's that I haven't watched X2 in a long time but I think X2 and Days of Future Past are equal in quality. I hope Apocalypse has that same quality as well, if not better of course ;)
