Empire Magazine Reveals 25 X-Men: Days of Future Past Covers

Throughout the day, Empire Magazine is going to be releasing 25 cover photos of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. After the jump you'll find the collection, updated as the day goes on.

1973 Sentinel 

 Havok (Lucas Till)

Toad (Evan Jonigkiet)
It certainly seems that they went closer to the old-school Toad look, as speculated when Jonigkiet spoke to MTV a while back.

William Stryker (Josh Helman)

Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage)

 Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence)

Beast (Nicholas Hoult)

Quicksilver (Evan Peters) 
I swear it seems like Fox and Singer are intentionally making Quicksilver look ridiculous as a shot to Marvel.

Magneto (Michael Fassbender)
The 1973 Magneto looking pretty classic. 

Charles Xavier (James McAvoy)
Obviously we need to note the fact that Charles is upright here...

1973 Wolverine (Hugh Jackman and his veins)

Director Bryan Singer

Future Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)

The Future Professor X (Patrick Stewart)

The Future Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen)

Storm (Halle Berry)

Rogue (Anna Paquin)
This is interesting given the news that her role was cut from the film. I've never really liked what they've done with Rogue anyway.

Warpath (Booboo Stewart)
Warpath is one of the members of the X-Force, a film we know is in the works and may spin out of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page)
The tweet from Empire says "A Time Traveling Kitty Pryde" which is interesting given Logan is expected to be doing the time traveling in place of Kitty.

Sunspot (Adan Canto)
Bobby da Costa was an original member of The New Mutants, the team that became the original X-Force under the command of the time-traveling mutant Cable.

Blink (Fan Bing Bing)
Blink will be doing the teleportation duties for the New Mutants in the future. While she doesn't line up with Sunspot and Warpath in comic continuity, this movie is full of time travelers and she does play a role in the Age of Apocalypse story that's being adapted for 2016.

Bobby Drake/Iceman (Shawn Ashmore)
A member of the original X-trilogy, Iceman returns in the future of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It'll be interesting to see just how powerful he's become since we finally saw him begin to realize the full extent of his mutation in X-Men: The Last Stand.

 Bishop (Omar Sy)
A time traveler from the distant future when Professor X's team is a legend, Bishop is one of the great additions to the X-mythology and will certainly play a huge role going forward.

Colossus (Daniel Cudmore)
A great X-Man who has been traditionally underused in the movies, Colossus is back, though it may be a short-lived reunion for fans of the mutant as we know he's going to square off with a Sentinel. 

Sentinel Mark X
The mutant hunter from the bleak future in which Professor X, Magneto and friends are being hunted to extinction, the Mark X Sentinel is the ultimate adversary of the X-Men and looks kinda like the Gimp.

There you have 25 covers. While I'm very excited for this movie, the build up to this was really over-hyped. Either way, expect a new trailer Sunday during the Super Bowl and be ready to see X-Men: Days of Future Past in U.S. theaters May 23!
