Empire Magazine's 25th Anniversary Covers for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and 4 New Images

Empire Magazine, with the occasion of their 25th anniversary, have released 25 covers for their magazine, each featuring one of the characters from the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past". The covers were released online at a rate of one per hour, and after a full 25-hour day, Empire-time, we finally got the full roster of characters for the impressive sequel directed by Bryan Singer.

To sum it up, the characters, both from the future and the past, are as follows (in order from top to bottom, left to right): Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Bishop (Omar Sy), Blink (Bingbing Fan), Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), director Bryan Singer, Colossus (Daniel Cudmore), a future Sentinel, future Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Havok (Lucas Till), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), young Magneto (Michael Fassbender), old Magneto (Ian McKellen), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), the young Professor X (James McAvoy) and the old Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Rogue (Anna Paquin), the first Sentinel, Storm (Halle Berry), Sunspot (Adan Canto), Toad (Evan Jonigkeit), Warpath (Booboo Stewart), William Stryker (Josh Helman) and the Wolverine from the past.

After the jump you'll also find an image containing all 25 covers in one long strip, and four new images released by Empire Magazine. And in case the design of the future Sentinels left you puzzled, here is a quote from production designer John Myhre about how he conceived the apocalyptic version of the killer robots:
"They’re biomechanical weapons. We had to come up with what would be the ultimate version that could actually, in principle, stop the X-Men. We started with this idea that they were almost made up of magnetic plates slapped over one another, imagining that the plates could contract or grow, so the Sentinel can be skinny to get through a small space or the plates can open up to become a bigger shape. So they have become virtually unstoppable."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens May 23, 2014.

Check out the covers and the new images after the jump.
