I have some questions about X-Men: Days of Future Past:

  1. Does Wolverine still have his Adamantiam claws at the end of the movie?

  2. Since the future has been rewritten will there be movies to fill us in on the rewritten 50 years? Telling us what happened from 1973 onwards, I'm sure it's not just smooth sailing.

For solving the mutiple question problem, i am removing 3rd question because its clear duplicate of Does Marvel have full filming rights for all characters in Avengers Multiverse? –  Ankit Sharma Jun 10 '14 at 6:51
Still will ask you to split your question 1 and 2 separate. Which will help you to get accurate good answers. –  Ankit Sharma Jun 10 '14 at 6:54
The 2nd question makes this entire question not such a good-fit for this site. I am sure future movies will stick to this timeline. However, it is a pretty open ended question. –  KeyBrd Basher Nov 14 '14 at 14:07

1 Answer 1

So history has been re-written in DoFP, which has basically ret-conned the first 3 films out of existence (although, they seem to have significant similarities, so perhaps they don't deviate too far).

  1. As Wolverine is dredged from the river by Stryker, this would infer that in the new continuity Wolverine does undergo the adamantium procedure: that's what the scene is setting up, the very point of it.

  2. Channing Tatum has just confirmed that he will be playing Gambit in a Spin off, and there are strong indications that Fox are trying to build a shared-universe like the MCU. The next X-men film, apocalypse, is said to be using the first-class era roster, with the new addition of Wolverine. Considering that Gambit has already appeared in X-Men Origins, he is supposed to be around 25-30 years old in the 80s, meaning he could appear alongside them. There is enough evidence here to assume the next film will be part of filling in the gaps between DoFP and present day...

Regarding 1), I also thought so at first when this scene started, but in fact that wasn't Stryker but Mystique playing him (as evident from the short "yellow-eye shineup" we've been shown). –  Tom Cody Jun 8 '14 at 15:16
Of course! I forgot about that... do we feel this means that Mystique doesn't enter Logan into the Weapon X program? –  John Smith Optional Jun 8 '14 at 15:18
I'm not sure, this whole thing seems very speculative anyway. But at least the whole Adamantium plot would have to happen a bit more complex than Logan just teaming up with Stryker, since Mystique doesn't seem much inclined to work with Stryker, let alone support his mutant experiments. –  Tom Cody Jun 8 '14 at 15:19
Point 1, I dont get that whole scene, if he were to get his adamantium, then why would they portray Mystique as Stryker rather than just Stryker? Of course speculative to say anything at this time. Point 2, seems really weird choice to make Channing Tatum Gambit. Channing is a big guy, would make more sense to make him Colossus or similar big characters. –  Jared Jun 9 '14 at 21:20
Perhaps in this new continuity, Mystique is always Stryker and uses him for personal leverage, much like Senator Kelly in X-Men? this is all spurious, as we don't actually know, but I still think the choice to include the scene is supposed to be foreshadowing Wolverine joining Weapon X: it loses its relevance otherwise. –  John Smith Optional Jun 9 '14 at 21:36
