'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Posters Beg the Question: Which Mutant Has The Power Of Photoshop?

X-Men: Days of Future Past has been saturating the market for thirty years now, as near as I can tell, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing. You’ve got Twitter teases, behind the scenes snippets, rumors about who has been cut, and the ill-conceived Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s deal.

What was once an exciting prospect for me has become a countdown to probabl disaster and the continuous hope that my fears will be unfounded. Alas, each new piece of advertising that bursts forth lowers my expectations further and further. These posters make me sad because they prominently feature terrible Photoshop, strange character juxtaposition, and horrible Photoshop.

These posters tell us that Storm and Beast like to stand near one another and look in different directions, as do several other pairs of mutants. Furthermore, Wolverine is super in this movie, guys, so don’t even worry. Colossus looks like Destro took a shit on his face and WE GET IT, STORM IS SUPER IN THIS TOO. If the movie is as terrible looking and poorly thought out as the marketing, we are boned.
