X-Men: Days of Future Past #ReadMore

X-Men franchise is an interesting franchise. Frankly, I won't remember much about any sequels of the original X-Men which was released in 2000. On the other hand, the original movie was very entertaining, opening me to a whole new world of the movies based on characters and stories from Marvel Comics.


Apart from the X-Men series, there also has been a special focus on Wolverine, with two movies making it to the big screen - X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and Wolverine (2013). All these movies, X-Men series and Wolverine, are criss-cross of stories and move back and forth in time.

Latest story of the mutants is X-Men: Days of Future Past. The movie has a raked in a whopping $261 Million global box-office opening.

Though I am not much impressed by the movie, it did pique my interest in the characters, stories and comics about the mutants. Here are some articles from around the web which I found while reading more about the X-Men -

Though the title of the post says review, these are actually rants of a hard-core X-Men comics fan about gaps between original stories and the movie, and about the instances of stupidity (!).

Though, I am not so keen a comic-reader, one thing we too spotted while watching the moview was this -
