X-men: Days of Future Past is inching closer and closer to its May release date, and just to make the wait just a little more unbearable, Empire magazine just released a staggering 25 covers featuring different members of the cast. We're already dyed in the wool X-Men fans and are obviously psyched about the upcoming film and the chance to catch a glimpse at the new costumes and characters. But we're curious as to what people who haven't been sucked up into X-Men fandom might think of the new covers with no prior knowledge about the comic book and movie series...

To the X-Men fan: This is William Stryker, a military leader with a deep-seated hatred for mutant-kind.

To the Newbie: Is this just a regular military guy? I hope he has a gun or something under that uniform, what with all these robots and mutants and toads running around.

To the X-Men fan: This is Bolivar Trask. He's a scientific genius who develops the Sentinels.

To the X-Men fan: This is Wolverine, the franchise's most popular mutant. He's the best at what he does and what he does isn't very nice (because it's usually stabbing people). He has healing powers and retractable claws from his hands.

X-Men Days Of Future Past 'Empire Magazine' CoverEmpire Magazine/20th Century Fox

To the X-Men fan: That’'s Bryan Singer. He can be credited (or blamed) for starting our current superhero film craze with the original X-Men movie in 2000. He’s returned to right the ship he set sail all those years ago.

X-Men Days Of Future Past 'Empire Magazine' CoverEmpire Magazine/20th Century Fox

To the X-Men fan: This is the future version of Professor X who has wisely ditched the bell bottoms and thinning hair for cool body armour and an awesome wheelchair.

To the Newbie: It's none of our business, but maybe the guy in a futuristic wheelchair should skip the huge mutant battle...

X-Men Days Of Future Past 'Empire Magazine' CoverEmpire Magazine/20th Century Fox

To the X-men fan: This is the future version of Magneto, a mutant who can manipulate metal, and becomes that hateful leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

To the X-men fan: This is Warpath, a jack of all trades mutant that can fly, as super-strength, and is almost invulnerable.

To the Newbie: With huge war brewing, and Washington D.C. crumbling behind him, couldn't this simple caveman lawyer bring something more to the fight rather than just two knives?

X-Men Days Of Future Past 'Empire Magazine' CoverEmpire Magazine/20th Century Fox

To the X-Men fan: This is Kitty Pryde. She's a young mutant with the ability to become intangible, and phase through objects, walls, and even people.

X-Men Days Of Future Past 'Empire Magazine' CoverEmpire Magazine/20th Century Fox
