Watch the X-Men: Days of Future Past post-credits scene from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Last month, word got out that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would feature a post-credits sequence involving the mutants of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the internet nearly exploded with all of the resulting speculation about what this crossover could mean for Marvel characters like Spider-Man, the X-Men, and others that exist outside the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sadly, it was soon revealed that the Days of Future Past clip was simply a promotional requirement of Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb’s lingering contract with X-Men studio Fox. 

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now in theaters — after an impressive opening-weekend haul — the X-Men: Days of Future Past clip has found its way online, offering an early peek at a great sequence from the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class

In the clip, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) confronts a young William Stryker (Josh Helman) at a remote military base where a group of mutant soldiers are being shipped off under vague, sinister reasons. Along with featuring blue-skinned shape-shifter Mystique, the footage also includes mutants Toad (Evan Jonigkeit), Ink (Gregg Lowe), Havok (Lucas Till), and an additional, unidentified mutant soldier (played by Jaa Smith-Johnson) getting in on the action.

After rescuing the mutant soldiers from whatever fate Stryker and his team had in mind for them, Mystique tells Havok, “I’m on my own now.”

Along with releasing the post-credits clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Fox also released a batch of promotional images from Days of Future Past this week. The images features solo shots of many of the characters from the film, including Mystique, Toad, and many of the other returning characters and new additions to the franchise, as well as both the past and future versions of characters like Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart), and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). 

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters May 23. The film is directed by Bryan Singer and is intended to unite the original, three-film X-Men franchise with the timeline of both the Wolverine solo movies and X-Men: First Class.

Five films are nominated for an Academy Award in the “Visual Effects” category this year, and they each offer a nice look at the amazing tricks filmmakers and their effects teams can pull off on the big screen. In recognition of these five films and one of our favorite Oscar categories, we’re putting the spotlight on one “Visual Effects” nominee each day leading up to Sunday’s broadcast and taking a closer look at what made them stand out.

Previously, we looked at the face-mapping effects in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the mobile motion-capture technology of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the digitally created duo that were the breakout stars of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and the black hole that got the attention of audiences and scientists alike in Interstellar. In our final feature, we look at the time-stopping techniques that gave Quicksilver super-speed in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
There was a lot to like about last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it was one scene in particular that everyone seemed to be talking about after director Bryan Singer's film hit theaters: Quicksilver's time-stopping takedown of a kitchen full of guards.
While staging a prison break from the highest-security holding cell in the country, mutants Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) get a little assistance from fleet-footed mutant Quicksilver (Evan Peters), who incapacitates a group of security guards – often using their own feet, fists, and surroundings against them. He does all of this while listening to Jim Croce's Time in a Bottle, which manages to make an already fantastic scene just a little bit better.

It was revealed back in December 2013 that Anna Paquin's scenes as the mutant Rogue were edited out of the theatrical cut of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but fans will have the chance to see the original, uncut version thanks to a restored edition of the film that will be released in 2015.

The "Rogue Cut" will hit shelves next summer, according to Variety, and feature more than 10 minutes of footage that was removed from the theatrical version of Days Of Future Past -- including the scenes featuring Paquin as the power-absorbing mutant Rogue, a character she played in all three chapters of the original X-Men trilogy.
